    Ferguson Protesters Guard Stores From Looters

    Ferguson Protesters Guard Stores From Looters

    Now this is what this situation needs, and I'm serious! For too long, people have been defending the actions of these thugs that are breaking in and looting stores. All they do is hurt the cause, and make all protesters look bad. To quote one black man:

    What's most despicable is that you don't see any of the black leaders coming out and saying this kind of stuff (obviously Obama shouldn't use the n word but you get what I mean). Instead, all they do is make excuses. But you know what, this isn't about them, this is about people that know the difference from right and wrong, and know that just because you been slighted, don't gives you the right to act out like a two year old.

    Good on them!

    Good! I hope it's for real. For far too long, people have been afraid to step away from the herd, and take a stand for what is right. No matter what wrongs happen to you in life, it doesn't make other wrong behavior okay, and the best way to be taken seriously, is by using intelligence and reason to accomplish justice.

    The president spoke after four nights of protests in Ferguson, Missouri, over the death of Michael Brown, 18. Police on Wednesday fired tear gas against protesters and arrested 16 people, including two reporters. Police said that rocks and a Molotov cocktail were thrown at officers.

    “There is never an excuse for violence against police, or for those who would use this tragedy as a cover for vandalism or looting,” he said.

    I was wondering where the president was on all this considering he is 50% black.

    You forgot to show the second part.

    To my knowledge, there has been no "excessive force against peaceful protesters" but instead against the looters. I've seen several protests by now and they've all been peaceful. Looting is not a first amendment right...

    Many eyewitness accounts contradict this sentiment, but I digress. You claimed that the President has excused the behaviors of those who would attack the police and loot, when he has explicitly stated otherwise

    Obama should get some leadership advice from that highway patrol cop.
