    Sure they are.


    looting a tv is not a "revolt".......
    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    Riots get out of hand. It comes with the territory.

    No, it isn't, but then again most of the people doing the rioting in the first place aren't doing so to get a free tv or free stereo equipment out of the deal. They are doing so because they are pissed off. The problem with riots, though, is that they usually turn into total anarchy which leads to destruction of property and people getting killed or injured. I'm not saying I condone rioting, but I'm saying that I can understand why events like this lead to it.

    Which is why they should be suppressed swiftly and with all necessary force.

    Which only incites more violence considering that the police are the very reason for the rioting in the first place. The point is that it shouldn't have happened in the first place. Does it excuse rioting? No, it doesn't. Rioting doesn't need an excuse. Is it a surprise that rioting occurred? Not at all. Considering the circumstances I'm surprised that the rioting wasn't as intense and destructive as the LA riots. When one lives in a free country this is type of behavior is expected when the authority abuse their power.

    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.
    I believe they're calling it an accident based on his reactions etc.

    It "Seems" that he did not mean to pull the gun, rather he was trying to grab the tazer?

    Either way, it's his fault and there was no defensive aspect of it.

    I imagine that your desire to burn your neighbor's car is severely diminished by seeing your fellow rioters' brains splattered across the pavement. Just sayin'.

    Like I said, rioting almost always turns into complete chaos and anarchy. It comes with the territory.

    Someone would have to be insane to intentionally shoot a perp who was obviously in custody and do it in front of other officers and with hundreds of witnesses with cell phone cameras out.

    You are emotionally wrought and when you calm down your sense of logic will return.

    They're slimy little cretins.
    Sounds like you know what you are talking about.

    Not so much.

    Why the hell are BART cops carrying guns anyways? It's BART, it's San Francisco, ffs!
    Laughable.
