    I've had emotional lash outs out of anger. I had one this morning about canned hunts. I didn't destroy anyone's property while doing it.

    So THATS the foundation of a 'belief' that justifies protests, riots, destroying other black citizens lives, etc? Personal bias without regard to facts? Gut feelings IN SPITE OF facts?

    You arent painting those protesters in a very flattering light. In fact you are making them loom rather stupid.

    The fact that a man they believed killed a teenager who according to some witnesses was unarmed.

    According to all witnesses, including Officer Wilson, Brown was unarmed. There was never any doubt that Brown was unarmed, and nobody ever claimed he was armed.

    the teenager WAS unarmed. It didnt stop him from assaulting a store clerk and then later attacking an armed cop.

    Again I don't personally know any of them so I can not fully provide the justification.

    I am not trying to find the justification, I am only stating what made the protestors do what they did.

    Conflicting accounts paint a different picture.

    No...the loudest voices offered lies which were countered by witnesses testimony and forensic evidence. There was never any hands up dont shoot, or executions, or shots in the back...all lies.

    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.
    Nonviolent protests, good. Blocking the fire escape, bad. If this story is accurate, then they just hurt the cause.

    You are speculating. You just speculated that because of their own personal bias and without regard to facts, THAT is why the acted.
