    If so, then they can indeed be minority owned, while a publicly owned national brand.

    I fail to see where you have more knowledge of the evidence and testimony to make the claim that it was idiotic not to bring charges against the police officer in this case.

    Perhaps you can provide some evidence that you do in fact know more about it than the evidence and testimony presented to the grand jury.

    Walgreens, Autozone, Family Dollar, O'Reilly Auto Parts, and Title Max are not franchises and not one ceo is minority. Little Ceasars is a franchise but I cannot find anything on Beauty Town, which does appear to be a small business and most likely owned by a minority.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    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".

    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.

    You have no point.
    The report that they repeated is that most of the businesses were minority owned. Period.
    Even if we accept her claim (and now yours for two businesses) as true, she failed to show that the over-all report is any way false by showing just three businesses out of the many burnt.
    She simply didn't do it.
    Even her claim of half (at the time) was false.

    I understand that. I haven't seen evidence of it. I know that of the businesses mentioned, 3 can't be franchised. AutoZone can't be franchised. I just Googled it and Walgreens can't be franchised. I also Googled Family Dollar and it also can't be franchised.

    Now they're "burnt" and not "destroyed", as the KMOV headline claimed?

    Three of the 3 business (Walgreens, AutoZone, Family Dollar) listed can't be franchised, therefore they can't be minority owned.

    The report they repeated could be wrong. Breitbart has been wrong in the past. The media has also been wrong.

    You don't have to accept her claim that 3 of the business can't be franchised. That's okay. But she's correct.

    And "burnt" isn't destroyed. Let me know when there is evidence that most of the businesses that were destroyed were minority owned. Until then, I'll say that it looks like KMOV-TV was as wrong as the people who said Michael Brown was shot in the back.

    You are still just making claims, and not providing actual support for them.

    And you still have yet to get it that those businesses listed were not all the businesses damaged, making your claim of a lie nothing but bs.
