    Moral Protest a Shooting Or An Excuse To Stea and Destroy Other People's Property?

    FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) A day of anger over a fatal police shooting of an unarmed black man in suburban St. Louis turned to mayhem as people looted businesses, vandalized vehicles and confronted police in riot gear who tried to block access to parts of the city.
    The tensions erupted after a candlelight vigil Sunday night for 18-year-old Michael Brown, who police said was shot multiple times Saturday after a scuffle involving the officer, Brown and another person in Ferguson, a predominantly black suburb of the city.

    Several businesses near the shooting scene were looted, including a convenience store, a check-cashing store, a boutique and a small grocery store. People took items from a sporting goods store and a cellphone retailer, and carted rims away from a tire store.
    TV footage showed streams of people walking from a liquor store carrying bottles of alcohol, and in some cases protesters stood atop police cars or taunted officers who stood stoic, some carrying shields and batons. Video posted online by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch showed a convenience store on fire.
    Witnesses reported seeing people vandalize police cars and kick in windows. Television footage showed windows busted out of a TV station van.


    Why is smashing, stealing, burning everything in site a "protest" as opposed to being an opportunity to score some free ****? This goes back to Rodney King when thousand of "deeply concerned" blacks burned L.A. to the ground in the name of moral justice!

    Sad when the scum of society take advantage of situation to steal and destroy. Hope some of these businesses have the ability to defend what is theirs.

    I hope I'm not jinxing my City, but rioting seems to only occur in certain States.

    California of-course, Michigan, Missouri apparently.

    But not much rioting in States like Texas.

    Any excuse to riot will do. I recently found out the history of my shotgun, purchased from a friend 15 years back-turns out it was purchased to defend him and his family in the LA riots.

    I can see people protesting peacefully in regards actions of the PD, but the minute people start vandalizing, looting, stealing, it is a riot not a protest and the rules change at that point.
