    Agree. Just like last time most of those arrested weren't even from Ferguson and many weren't even from Missouri. People just looking for a reason to act like assholes.

    Agreed.

    If your problem is with the police, then attack the police.

    Even if every store was white owned with white employees it's an absolute disgrace.
    As I've stated many times before, liberal white Democrats will do ANYthing to keep that 90% voting bloc. They dare not EVER say a disparaging thing about blacks. Ever.

    Well, I don't know. But it's an African American community. Most people in the town are black. So it follows that many of the businesses will be owned by minorities.

    I can guess, though, that those that are not African Am. owned, will be leaving the community after this. And then will follow the common complaints we often hear, aobut why businesses don't open up in their neighborhoods, offering healthy food or cheap electronics or whatever. This is why. Lawlessness.

    Minorities can own franchises.

    I guess they're unemployed, or they wouldn't be in another state being violent and stealing. That really feeds into a stereotype. I guess they can't see it.

    If you have a strong, concerned and involved community that consistently takes a vocal stand against hoodlum behavior you end up with less hoodlums.

    Conversely, if your community sits idly by and remains silent when this kind of thing happens they are tacitly endorsing the "victimhood" mentality that drives this kind of behavior.

    Did I indict EVERYONE in Ferguson???? It was plainly obvious that I was indicting the people doing the damage, and didn't mention who or what kind of people they were. Seems you are trying to derail with a post like this. I think you can do a whole lot better.

    Yes they did, they had to have police stand guard at some of the fire stations.
