    Most of those people that dont see justice as having been served know precisely dick about the actual details of the case. People that believe justice was not served made up their minds based on their own bias, prejudice, and the rumors and rants of others. They had plenty of help. There is a nice collection of race baiting assholes that dont care about black lives...but boy they are HAWT for black 'causes'.

    This guy speaks truth the people that stir up the pot of 'injustice'....

    Let's say that's the case: why aren't the folks that ARE from Ferguson kicking their asses? Why aren't Fergusonians helping the cops segregate the trouble makers?

I do feel sorry for anyone who lost their business but let's not lie that most of these are corportations and not small business owners.
    You can own a store...and it still being a corporation.

    I am not surprised that you choose lawlessness. You prefer mob rule. I get it. Many of you do. I am also not surprised that you blame those who are lawful with the crimes of the lawless. The Father of Lies, the Lawless One, has taught you well.

    This attitude that you are displaying is what is totally irresponsible.

    You can franchise any of those stores (Walgreens, AutoZone, Family Dollar) though. That was her point - and she was correct.

    Riots are what the lawless do. You have the heart of a thug.

    Excellent questions. You'd think it would infuriate the lawful citizens of Ferguson to have outsiders coming in destroying their city.

    You can own a store under a franchise... you can own a subway store, even though you don't own subway.

    We can disagree. You have no issue with a headline that has not been proven to be true. I do. You have no problem considering "burnt" and "damaged" as being the same thing as "destroyed". I do. You have no problem with the liberal use of store names included which factually can't fit into the story because none of them can possibly be defined as "minority owned". I do.
