Maybe.

Now THAT would be a great riot. Right?

They are still totaling up the costs here in Ferguson but it's over 26 million so far for the riots we had.

Still doesn't change the outcome and makes matters worse and only divides the country even more.

Some Blacks cheering, some blacks embarrassed, some blacks angry, and all of the non-blacks watching this and reinforcing their personal opinions about blacks in this society.
Kinda how Blacks look at Whites when they shoot up elementary schools, movie theaters, former workplaces, etc.

Don't believe everything you see on TV. The mayor is an arrogant "hate whitey" type who doesn't want to use force or show force for fear that blacks might get hurt. She thinks she is going places politically, like governor or senator. Hopefully, these riots will kill her chances for anything but a janitorial job.
The Mayor actually said that she had to maintain a balance and give protesters who wanted to destroy space to do that. That was Sunday.

Yes, that is exactly what she said and she said it on Saturday night. The local and network news anchors are still shaking their heads and trying to make sense of what she said. A CNN correspondent was trying to give her a hard time about those words earlier this evening. She claims she was taken out of context, then she became more angry by the second. She can't govern; she can't do anything right!! She was elected because her father was a big Maryland politician for years and he bought her way into that position. A CNN correspondent earlier tonight said that the city hailed her election victory. BULL!!!! She was elected with about 15-25% turnout. She is the cause of all of this rioting!!!!
