    They don't need to. Cop killers are guaranteed a nice long trip to the pen. What do cops who shoot/beat civilians get? Warnings and/or their badges taken away? You're being naive if you think the system works the same both ways.

    I really want somebody to tell me this cop was acting in self defense when there were 3 policemen on top of the unarmed 'suspect' already.



    Is this an excuse for rioting?

    No, it is not. In fact, the rioting was cause for the police, backed with national guard troops, to put every one of the rioters down with gas and rubber bullets. Those who resisted beyond that should be considered insurgents and taken down with real bullets.

    I have absolutely no tolerance for violent forms of protest that are releases, not for a political cause, but for random and wanton angst to be expressed when any other time it would be considered uncivilized.

    Every one of the monkeys should have been apprehended and charged with sedition.

    Precisley... (though I have a hard time wrapping my head around the sedition angle, I have no problem with encouraging lethal force in defense of property here)

    hmmm. I don't see the "covert conduct". I also do not see this as a "Rebellion of the government in power", just thugs and savages looking for a new tv and lashing out at authority because thats the thing to do...


    In other words, I do not give them that much credit.

    Well then let's just call them insurgents for perpetrating mass violence against the citizens and the government authority and put a bullet in their heads.

    People rarely need an excuse to riot, but when people see the authority abuse their power like this they will revolt. People get immensely pissed off about this sort of thing and I don't blame them. I don't that all of the people involved in the rioting are just doing so for an excuse to steal, loot and cause destruction.

    There is still no excuse for rioting and causing damage to your fellow citizens.
