I don't have any respect for rioters, but on the grand scale of thing, a riot fueled by sports is by far more egregious. Civil disobedience caused by actual problems in society is more understandable, and even possibly useful long term.
so what percentage of the riots in ferguson and baltimore were made up of blacks?
75% 85% higher?
do you get a few idiots joining in for the looting.....of course
Free **** man....
do i think that there is a double standard for rioters?
no....i think they all should go to prison....and for a good LONG time
i dont care if there black, white, yellow, or green......
they are destroying their city, their neighborhoods, their businesses
and they are hurting people physically and financially

No double standard from me. I dislike those who riot and burn store fronts in places like Seattle at the economic conferences just as much as those who burn and loot in Ferguson and Baltimore. Criminals who destroy the message being put out by peaceful protesters.
