    I am guessing the protestors were emotionally vested in the decision, because they believed that the police was doing everything possible to get the desired outcome. I can only guess the belief's of the protestors, but I guess they believed that Michael willson was guilty of murder.

    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.
    I don't think the system is rigged.

    The protestors are the ones that think the system is rigged.

Don't you think everyone knows the looters always find a "cause" as an excuse to burn and steal? How can this crap be shoved aside as the right to protest when in fact it is nothing to do with the incident or the right to protest?
    That was actually kind of a funny thing to watch. On one side they don't want a "military police presence" because it's "intimidating" and chills the willingness of protesters to voice their opinion but as soon as the riots started they were all "You purposely held off the national guard because you knew there would be fires and looting and you just wanted that footage for TV!"

    Darren Wilson? I think you mixed your players.

    I'm sure many of them do believe that Wilson committed murder. But the GJ didn't agree with them. That doesn't give them the right to pillage and destroy the private property of others.

    Then since you have already presumed to guess, go ahead and guess what they base their 'belief' on.

    When people are suffering from a combination of anger, grief, and frustration, it is difficult to try and reason with them when they emotionally lash out.

    What do people have to feel this combination of anger, grief, and frustration over?

    Personal bias? Gut feelings? I don't know for certain.
