    The rioters were too overcome with grief to have checked with city hall before they looted and burned the wrong buisnesses.

    Lynch mob justice. If half of that energy was directed at the main source of violent shootings among African Americans, (which are other African Americans,) imagine what they might accomplish.

    Also, we have to hold the media accountable as well. Give a fool the spotlight and they become a bigger fool. Where was the spotlight when....
    7/18- Jimmie Norman, white male murdered by black male. No national news.
    7/18- Terry Taylor, white male murdered by black male. No national news.
    7/17- Cindy Raygoza, white female murdered by black male. No national news.
    7/11- Luis Aguilar, 91 year old hispanic male murdered by black male. No national news.
    7/10- Brittany Simpson, white female murdered by black male. No national news.
    7/6- Sarah Goode, white female murdered by black male. No national news.
    7/6- Jeffrey Westerfield, white male murdered by black male. No national news.
    7/5- Perry Renn, white male murdered by black male. No national news.
    7/3- Laurey Kennedy, white female still in coma from beating by black male. No national news
    7/3 Eric Mollet, white male murdered by black male. No national news.
    7/2 Rupert Anderson, white male murdered by black male. No national news.
    7/2 Jennifer Kingeter, white female murdered by black male. No national news.
    6/30 Jim Brennan, white male, murdered by black male. No national news.
    6/29 Paul Shephard, white male, murdered by black male. No national news.
    6/27 Shirley Barone, white female, murdered by black male. No national news.
    6/27 Penelope Spencer, white female, murdered by black male. No national news.
    6/27 Inga Evans, white female, murdered by black male. No national news.
    6/26 Jake Rameau, white male, murdered by black male. No national news.
    6/25 Gina Burger, white female, murdered by black male. No national news.
    6/24 Nathan Dasher, white male, murdered by black male. No national news.
    6/22 Jonathan Price, white male, murdered by black male. No national news.
    6/20 John Whitmore, white male, murdered by black male. No national news.
    6/18 John Yingling,white male, murdered by black male. No national news.
    6/17 Allyn Reeves, white male, murdered by black male. No national news.
    6/15 Michael Beaver, white male, murdered by black male. No national news.
    6/11 Angela Cook, white female, murdered by black male. No national news.
    6/11 Nathan Hall, white male, murdered by black male. No national news.
    6/7 Harry Briggs, white male, murdered by black male. No national news.
    6/5 Laura Bachman, white female, murdered by black male. No national news.
    6/2 Robert Mohler, white male, murdered by black male. No national news

    I wish I had a list of all the black folks being murdered by other black folks.

    But that seems not too politically correct to talk about.

    Therefore, they get a big ol, "Meh," from me. Not my circus. Not my monkeys.

    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.
    If you go back and look at history over the last 50-60 years. You will find that when 'mob mentality' has taken over, they destroy their own neighborhoods and their own businesses.
    Look at the Watts riots, Rodney King riots, Detroit riots.......

    WTF? Yeah it does matter.
    Who the information is actually attributable most certainly does matter.

    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.
    So if one is going to claim Breitbart is wrong here, they are going to have to show that isn't what the Station reported.

    I am with you on that, but her claim is still incorrect.
    She has not shown anything to be based on a lie.

    Walgreens isn't minority owned. Neither is AutoZone. I'm sorry Excon but I've yet to see a list of the businesses that were destroyed (not damaged) that were mostly owned by minorities.

    The headline is clear on Breitbart and KMOV-TV. If it's true, they need to show that. But the stores they mentioned are most definitely not mostly "minority-owned".

    Does this mean you prefer tyranny to justice?

    The police should have used snipers to stop, in their tracks, anyone preparing to burn a structure.

    Had you understood the article you would have understood the distinction.
    The headline doesn't say "damaged", it says "destroyed". There is a distinction and they should make it.

    It would be valid to point out that the rioters damaged stores where minorities worked, leaving these people without jobs (which is the case for the Walgreens employees, for example). But it seems disingenuous to the innocent minority store owners whose businesses were truly destroyed to include a super retailer like Walgreens in the story.

    I know, right? It's almost as if either they weren't rational, or were being driven by personal motivations rather than social ones......
