    You are lying, I didn't condemn an ENTIRE community. Fail.

    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.
    These riots are all the same, unfortunately. I can understand being angry at government, but looting and destroying will do nothing to address that. Peaceful protest and intelligent voting address that, and if for real all is lost, the revolution. But revolt isn't looting for the sake of looting. I can understand rage, but the direction needs to be justified and right. Even in the Rodney King verdict, the rage is understandable but the application was right off. Looting and rioting and pointless destruction only hurts oneself.

    This is just an excuse for a money grab. And one thing to note is that these folk are by far not the majority. The majority was peaceful, I think those that are looting and doing the big destruction had planned on doing so from the start. The situation was only an excuse and large enough disruption for them to get away with their crimes.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Did you not see my 'like'? I just don't like certain blogs that try to paint something different than how it is. Of course it's wrong to riot and loot but if they are going to focus on minority owned businesses how hard is it for them to find them? Your articles were great sources and should have been sources in the op article.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

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.
    I agree that the list of stores destroyed/damaged doesn't jive with the statement that "most" were minority owned. Breitbart may want to dial back somewhat on that statement.

    Ugh, what a disgusting thing is going on there. How can anyone sleep at night after destroying and looting someone else's property like that for no reason?

    You haven't showed anything. You made a claim is all you did.
    FERGUSON, Missouri----KMOV-TV reports that the majority of stores that were damaged or completely destroyed during Monday night's violent riots in Ferguson were minority owned. Fire Departments around the St. Louis County Area put out 25 structural fires caused by vandals and looters following the announcement from the grand jury ...

    It is like you didn't even read the article.
    Those listed were those the article were claiming were the most damaged. Duh! Not specifically minority owned.

    Most of the damaged businesses were on West Florissant Avenue and included: Walgreens, Little Caesers Pizza, Autozone, Beauty Town, Title Max, Family Dollar Store, and O'Reilly Auto Parts. Small-business owner Natalie Dubose was in tears when she realized her cake store was attacked by vandals.

    So they listed 8 Stores.
    1. Walgreens,
    2. Little Caesers Pizza
    3. Autozone
    4. Beauty Town
    5. Title Max
    6. Family Dollar Store
    7, O'Reilly Auto Parts
    8. A cake store owned by Natalie Dubose

    And you make the following claim.
    More than half listed: Walgreens, Autozone, and Family Dollar for instance are not franchise and are not owned by minorites.
    That is three, not half of those listed. Nor do those three address the whole number burnt. Nor have you shown that they are not and can not be owned by individuals to support your claim.
    So your claim is absurd.

    BS.

    Are the criminals and gangs destroying themselves? No, they're not. The ones being destroyed are not the criminal organizations but the innocent victims. Thereby, you are claiming the store owners and business people are destroying themselves and that's false.

    Do you believe riots destroy gangs?

    Breitbart?
    First of all, her claim is unsupported.
    Secondly; Not Breitbart. "KMOV-TV reports"

    I hope they all have the good sense to take the insurance money and get out of that hellhole.

    Yes, Excon...Breitbart. The link in the OP is from Breitbart. It doesn't matter that it says what someone else reports. This entire case blew up because of internet maniacs and the media repeating information that probably isn't correct.

    I'd like to see the list of how many businesses were destroyed and how many of them are in fact minority owned.

    Even a buffoon can be justified in his rage. And in the present case, I would say that the idiots were the ones that failed to bring charges. That was arrogant and stupid even if it was legal.
