    Ferguson protesters shut down malls, trains on Black Friday

    Ferguson protesters shut down malls, trains on Black Friday | Fox News

    Good, this is the next level to raise awareness of how cops have become lawless and brutal themselves.

    Then, a handful of around 15 protesters were arrested, so much for freedom to assemble, now they're trampling on constitutional rights, trying to tamp down peaceful demonstrations, how despicable.

    The police aren't the people the public hates over this.

    Many on the Left (although this is certainly available from those who are desperate enough on the Right) overly romanticize civil disobedience.

    Those most affected by the interruption of transportation and consumerism aren't the well-to-do, but rather the lower middle class and the lower class. They may sympathize with your aims, but they certainly cannot afford to be denied transportation to their jobs, spending time with their families, and providing meaningful gifts for family and friends. This time is especially valuable to them. Never mind that now. We best deny everyone simple, honest, heart-warming comforts, because our naive political crusades are more important.

    Likewise, because their minds have been poisoned by Henry David Thoreau (who, as any learned liberal would let you know, inspired Gandhi, who in turn inspired MLK), they have seemingly taken being arrested as a badge of honor. Being arrested isn't a badge of honor, and doing things so blatantly against the law so one could get arrested is beyond juvenile behavior. Of course, little be it known that Mr. Thoreau, so privileged be his position in life, that a night in jail was like a damn vacation for him. Oh he thought it was marvelous! He could afford to be bailed out by his auntie and display his privileged position even further by demanding in vain that he stay in jail so he could feel like a man. Ever since then, a good Leftist needs to get thrown into jail to feel like he or she was doing right and standing up for their beliefs.

    Of course they do they were all raised on the myth's of the 1960's before they were taken over by a bunch of commie freaks.
    Now they are just a pain, like a political herpes or something.

    The legal - justice system is broken, this is basically why these protests are ongoing. People want to see some changes made.

    Much like the riots of the 1960's, people are making a statement now, they're fed up with the biased legal system, the establishment.

    Some are doing that, sure, but what about the mobs looting stores and starting fires?

    Those commie freaks you call them helped get civil rights bills passed and helped put an end to the Vietnam war. Quite good accomplishments. Nothing would ever have been accomplished if citizens just sat on their asses and hoped for something to happen. People took action and demanded change.

    There was no legal shortcomings in this case, there wasn't even enough evidence for a trial. The grand jury was simply a dog and pony show to confirm what was already clear-Brown was a thug who decided to punch a cop and try to get his gun.

    Its interesting how so many of the lefts statements come with a threat of violence.

    Were you around in the 60's? I recall the very same thing happening. Some people believe they need to tear stuff down and burn it to the ground before anything tangible in their favor happens. They think that is the only way to be heard, it worked in the 60's.
