Those looters and pillagers are mostly kids.
Social media was used to set it up for 3pm and they all bolted from school to get there.

Now do you go in with tear gas to rioters where the majority are minors ?


Just might be the next phase of social media "gatherings".

Several High Schools have reported Black students walked out and seems they went to the location where the rioting broke out.

News reporters have been injured, cops injured one left unresponsive.
Naturally looting has started, CVS pharmacy currently under siege.

Sad day for Baltimore!
Sometimes it takes violence to get your (their) point across unfortunately.

Do you think smiling at them and trying to be friends will be better. If I were a policeman in Baltimore it would be a good time for the police to strike and let the thugs take over the city. Do you think the mayor would learn to appreciate them then. I don't see her standing there dodging rocks. If I owned CVS, I would be thinking of suing for the encouragement of the thugs to vent.

LOL..Mayor just reminded those under 14 that the curfew is 9pm.
Finish your rioting and get home because this is a school night.

Tough situation.

The people that could stand to learn about our justice systems' inequalities (most white people) won't because of the rioting. The riots will take center stage and it will serve as a "gotcha" moment. The people will say "sure, the cops shot someone, but you all act like animals so what do you expect?"

The reality is that even if the protests were 100% peaceful, these sorts of things would still happen. Protesters were peaceful in the 50's, 60's and 70's, but we are still dealing with crap like this in the 10's.

That charlatan Jamal was screaming No Justice, No Peace at the funeral then comes out pretending he is shocked, shocked at what is happening. Another one comes out complains about jobs moving to China, never mentioning that he is personally responsible for advocating policies that are hostile to businesses. Oh, that mayor is in over her head. She just declared a curfew. TOMORROW. Tomorrow? And who is going to enforce it? It is particularly juicy to see an all-black city hall at the helm.

Showing a pic of a swat vehicle has nothing to do with what I said. You always come with your anti-cop rant

But they must have heard that they had a right to free loot.
She said a few days ago they need some space to destroy.
