    Then I'd advise sitting further back from the street and not wearing shoes with rubber soles that create more smoke.

    Just wrong. I'm sorry, but even if you think the grand jury was wrong, it's unlikely that these people in Seattle were on that grand jury. They have nothing to do with it.
    Actions like this should not be seen in the light of being a protest and excused.

    They should be prosecuted for what they are, kidnapping in a group and they should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    That's pertinent to the overall story but not to your claim. Capitalizing white and black is racist.

    Maybe people are going to start buying more old cars that had real chrome bumpers to push through the protesters.

    So fools with any foolish belief ought to be able to do fool things? Sounds like a prescription for societal meltdown.

    That so? Why bother telling a peon such as myself. You should be writing all the lib new agencies who capitalize on this very thing to complain.

    If you live near Ferguson protests, you should grab a bullhorn, paint a large sign and demand the blacks doing the protesting to "Stop being black racists."

They are not the idiots who are looting and robbing, and in fact, I haven't seen anyone near that age in the protestors that we see on the news.

    Emmett Till was killed because he was a black teenager who didn't act according to the codes of society. He was hunted down and brutally murdered by 2 white men. The justice system totally failed him. There isn't a single correlation between Emmett Till's story and Michael Brown's story except that each dead teenager was black and the person/persons responsible for the death was white. And nobody looted and robbed anyone after Till's killers were acquitted.

    It is an incredible and ridiculous leap to attempt to connect those 2 cases in any way, not to mention it is disrespectful to the memory and friends and family of Till to compare him in any way to Brown's case.
    I can not read minds so I don't know what the protestors are thinking.

    I agree that Trying to compare brown to Emmett till as individual people is like trying to compare a dolphin with a shark.

    I am saying that is what I think the protestors are afraid of: they believe that the St. Louis justice system failed them in such a way that they see the nightmarish form of the justice system that failed Emmett till.

    Fear, anger, and Grief make people blind to reason.

    The St. Louis justice system failed "them"? Nonsense. The only argument you could make, however wrong it is, is that it failed Michael Brown and by extension, his family and friends. The rioters and looters are owed nothing as a result of the shooting of Michael Brown, anymore than I am owed anything by the St. Louis justice system as a result of the shooting of Michael Brown.

    What is being protested is the justice system being rigged in favor of the cop, who told a story that turned a delinquent guilty of petty theft into some sort of beast. Wilson says that he heard brown was grunting like some aggressive animal. That sort of description paints the picture of events unfairly.
    No, it doesn't.

    Brown's side was represented as well.

    Just because you didn't get the outcome you wanted doesn't mean that the system is rigged.
