    This is part of the stupidity I see. They destroy themselves, because they think looting, burning, maiming people will all help them. I remember after the Rodney King/ LA Riots how people like Jesse Jackson said we needed to understand their rage. No I don't need to understand their rage, they need to understand what a bunch of buffoons they are.....what a bunch of moronic low-lifes they are for doing these things. Maybe there are injustices done by the police, but rioting when they are clearly in the wrong only defeats THEIR argument.
    I do not know if anyone else posted this, but he hits the nail on the head.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Why do you expect reason from Actions that are motivated by anger and frustration.

    Th grand jury heard the testimony of ACTUAL witnesses and the ACTUAL autopsy findings from 3 separate agencies including the fed AND one conducted by an independent coroner at the families behest. The evidence supported the story given by the officer. It proved a lot of the 'eyewitnesses' were full of ****. So...at th end of the day...

    Maybe they ought to ask what they are angry and frustrated about.

    To people who place emotional value to this case, the facts don't matter much if they cannot deprecate emotion from reason.

    I don't think anyone is blaming everyone in Ferguson for what is going on there. I hope the community places the fault on the right people, rather than the imaginary ones that "community organizers" teach them to fear, though. The people "protesting" in the street right now are the people that the Ferguson community should really fear.

    Unfortunately, over the years I have come to expect that 5 years from now when Ferguson is still a burnt out husk of its former self and businesses don't come back that the people of Ferguson will blame the business owners and lean harder on the government, which will invariably fail them.

    With all due respect, the OP cited a certain article and used the title of that article to start the thread. The OP also expressed his own thoughts on the subject of looting and rioting. I presume that he did so because he found it disturbing that a bunch of hoodlums would trash their own town and cause additional difficulty for themselves just to make some kind of ridiculous point. I then commented based on the spirit of the thread rather than the letter of the thread.

    I actually heard one dreadlocked 'community organizer' say on CNN that the Klan was there and partly responsible for the destruction of Ferguson.........and the reporter kept a straight face.
