Feel free to riot and loot.
Civilized people do not riot and loot...only animals do that.
Nuff said...

NYPD Officer Brian Moore dies two days after being shot in the head - CBS News

The cop's were in a lose-lose situation. Defend themselves and shoot the suspect and they lose their job and have a target on their back and get charged with murder. Let the suspect draw first... and well... you all see what happens.

Not a good time to be a cop. The well-being of a violent criminal is more important than that of a cop (doing their job) according to the general public.

Hell, I usually use Yahoo for my news (I know, I know), but this wasn't even front page news? Baltimore was front page with at least 3 articles of the top 5, for weeks!
Hey, even if things are perfectly equal (which they aren't), this is the hangover from enslaving an entire race of people and systematically oppressing them over the course of hundreds of years. Hindsight is 20/20, of course, but we haven't gotten anything we didn't ask for.

I think one of the reasons it doesn't get widely reported when a black or group of blacks viciously or randomly kill a white person is because the media fears vigillante whites will retalliate against the blacks, like they have done in the past.

That is why I think Obama's use of "Thugs" was appropriate...
It defines the group of rioters ..

Oh yeah, they forgot about that 500 or so years.
