    Hardly. But bringing charges so that a transparent investigation could be demonstrated would have been the way to go, if you wanted to avoid snipers having a chance of stopping the guys we provoked in their tracks. Or did you want the riots so the snipers get their chance?

    Folks sure didn't end up "like Michael Brown" out on the Bundy ranch.

    If the government had responded then, with tear gas, SWAT teams in MRAPs pushing the crowd, and overt shows of force, as they responded to the first, peaceful, waves of protest in Furguson, I wonder what would have happened?

    Of course, the government, and individual government agents whose asses were hanging over the line, foresaw the potential for things to go south real quick and thought better for forcing the typical brand of government tyranny down those peoples' throats.

    That's the kind of thing I'm advocating for.

    If it comes to violence, so be it.

    There are sure to be more than a few Michael Browns laying in the dirt when the smoke clears, but there are going to be a whole hell of a lot dead Johnny Laws left in the wake of the action as well.

    Maybe then government will get the message.

    It's coming in this country, sooner or later, but it's coming.

    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    And this people talking about JUSTICE? Lol, and where is justice for people which were spent many time, money and powers to begin their own business and now lost everything? Where is justice for students which are studying diligently and now lying in hospital, because protesters thought that he is not ally and beats them? Where is the justice?

    Name two minority owned business damaged or destroyed.

    I have shown 5 out of 8 businesses (more than half) listed in the article are not minority owned. I understand the businesses listed were not all the businesses damaged but I am only trying to point out that if they are listing stores that were damaged with the headline "minority owned" the least they could have done is provide a list more in line with the title. So really I am not just making claims, I have already posted the information with the ceo's which is actual support showing they are not minority owned. If you want to disprove me go ahead and provide information those listed in the article in the op are minority owned.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    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.
    Are you purposely missing the actual point?

    It really doesn't matter if she is right about 3, 4 or even 5 of the businesses not being minority owned (that she still hasn't supported) to the original claim that she made being wrong.
    The specifics about 3,4,or 5 matters not to her original claim that the story is based on a lie.

    She can't show the story is based on a lie as she claimed. So focus on that.

    The report clearly spoke to 25.
    Fire Departments around the St. Louis County Area put out 25 structural fires caused by vandals and looters ...

    Now unless you are going to suggest that some homes were burned down, they were specifically speaking of the business they were reporting about.
    3, 4, or 5 business not being minority owned does not mean the the majority were not.
    Do you or do you not understand that?

    While I am NOT in anyway condoning violence, crime, rioting. I would assume (and hope) anyone brave enough to run a business has insurance to cover their losses..

    I said THE ARTICLE, not the story was false when they included non-owned minority stores in a story about minority owned stores. Do you or do you not understand that? If not- show me where I said the story and not the blog or article itself was a lie. Quote me saying ""the story" and NOT "the article" is wrong.
    Yes, we can understand that most business were minority owned but can you understand it's misleading to post a list of business that are majority not owned by minorities in an article about minority businesses?

    When people are upset and projecting those emotions outwardly, they do it where they are when they become upset. That they are in their own neighborhood when it happens is the logical extension of that.

    A grand jury met. They did not give you the result you wanted. Justice was done. But that is not good enough for the usual suspects, is it?

    The police should not have let the rioters loot and burn buildings. Snipers can make sure the right people are stopped. In order to not be stopped one need not burn down buildings.

    But why be lawful? The Lawless One has given the necessary example, hasn't he? He told Sharpton to stay the course in private. Then made a public announcement for everyone to stay calm after the potential rioters were already in the streets.

    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.
    Justice is as much about being seen to be done as anything. In knocking it down before bringing charge, it looks like it is rigged. I do not know what happened, but I do know that it does not look like justice.
