    I'm sorry, I don't remember the names but I did hear a lawyer being interviewed on TV that represents 4 of the businesses. He said all 4 were minority owned. Destroying property hurts the property owner regardless of his or her race. Why would the race of the owner have anything to do with anything.

    Much like a child breaking things when throwing a tantrum, these morons simply assume that they will soon be repaired/replaced. They feel entitled to having other folks provide for them and will soon complain of being denied places to use their EBT cards or to find jobs. Justice (just us?) commands that others respect their tantrums and make it all better by rewarding their fits of rage.

    Ooohh... why don't hardened drug-addled street gangs understand the importance of building communities?!

    Drug gangs are businesses, have you ever watch the show where a guy goes and talks to these people? Yeah, they're not so stupid they couldn't know better. Sure there are always some idiots, but not all.

It's also kind of a bummer that Dollar Store is is now another dollars worth of gas away. But, hey! At least you showed those bastards who's boss.
    WHO is justifying it? Did I in any way justify it because I pointed out most of the business listed are not in fact minority owned, which is the point of the thread? I DO NOT AGREE WITH RIOTING AND LOOTING but this whole op is not entirely correct because most of the ones listed in the article are not minority owned.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    The leaders of the community are always responsible for what happens. Where were they? Where are they? This is not LA, rather a small community with an abundance of stupid people. They deserve each other-keep the fires lit you seekers of truth and justice!!!!!

    It's seems your complaint is with criminals behaving badly at any opportunity and really nothing to do with Ferguson.

    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 think the headline should be changed to bring the horror home:
