If you build an army of 100 lions and their leader is a dog, in any fight, the lions will die like a dog. But if you build an army of 100 dogs and their leader is a lion, all dogs will fight like a lion.

That is sorry to say excuse making. You shouldn't make excuses for scum like what we saw last night.Let us not forget what caused this powder keg to erupt. There are many many reason why so many of our cities are powder kegs, typically revolving around socio-economic pitfalls. But the rise of police aggression against the people and the number of casualties caused in the militarization of our police has been pilling onto the already hefty mountain.
I agree that the death of Freddie was a wrong that those responsible for should pay. But last night this wasn't about Freddie.Had the police not killed this kid in their custody, there would never have been riots...not now.
You don't solve decades of "root problems" as you term them, with destruction of your own community, and mayhem in one night do you? You say that had Freddie not been arrested as he was this wouldn't have happened. Well, that is a double edged sword my friend...Had Freddie not ran, this wouldn't have happened either....You either have law enforcement or you don't....Last night Balto didn't.The potential will always exist until you solve the root problems, but at this time there would have been none. There would have been nothing to ignite the spark and led thugs and criminals to a take over in riotous response like last night.
What are you talking about? Last night the police didn't interfere....We saw the result...So, can I take that to mean that what we saw last night you consider just? I hope that's not what you are saying.There's no one cause to the aggregate system, but the straw that broke the camel's back was aggressive police action against the citizens. So no, a militarized police does not look pleasant and it will not have good results; particularly when we heap it haphazardly onto an already smoldering cauldron of contempt and economic stagnation.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

I simply don't understand people. While I understand they're pissed off about police brutality they have to realize that acting like animals isn't going to help that situation, right? They have to realize that part of the reason they have so much trouble with the police is because of things like this, right?
So go to youtube and watch it then.
