I'm not sure what's "disgusting" about that pic. "True" seems more like it.

Things were bound to boil over some time.

It's unfortunate that the straw that broke the camel's back was Michael Brown, because he's really a bad example. That kid was a criminal.

But I think it's a mistake to look at things through the lens of only this incident and what followed instead of what it was like for decades before.

The people of Ferguson had every right to be frustrated. They had every right to protest. They had every right to vocally vent their anger and demand change.
You don't belong here.

You have a balanced and fair viewpoint.

Suggestion: pass out job applications. I'll bet the gathering disperses in no time flat.
The cops knew how to and did handle them the last time until they were called off by the politicians.

These protesters are chanting that they are ready for "war":

Doesn't strike me as a peaceful bunch.

If they were to chant "ready for war" in a white community. They'd get it. But chanting ready for war in their own communities... Cops could care less.

If I were a racist, then I'd be in support of these protestors. Because they only seem to be doing what racist white people want them to do; further destroying their own communities. And I wouldn't be surprised one bit if racist white people were actually amongst them. With masks on. Participating in property damage.

I saw their new police chief, Andre Anderson, on the TV being interviewed with the guns going off in the background. He looked startled. He was recently hired out of Glendale Arizona PD. Ha Ha. You ain't in Arizona anymore, Chief. Welcome to race relations midwestern style.

USA: Police arrests made as New Yorkers mark anniversary of Mike Brown killing
These idiots are the true bottom feeders of society. Talk about a bunch of do nothing, non contributing zeroes. The truth is none of their lives matter and Mike Brown's life didn't really matter either. No life inherently matters, your life only matters if you imbue it with meaning and make it matter.

The truth is Mike Brown, Sandra Bland, Freddie Grey, etc. were all hoodrat trash. Probably less than non contributing zeroes and more like net drains on society once you factor in welfare, cost of jail/prison confinement, the economic impact of their crimes, etc. Once you factor in all of the property damage, injuries, murders, riots, etc. done in their name and they are deep into the red.

Michael Brown was just playing out his destiny 1 year ago. If hadn't committed what amounts to suicide by cop he probably would have gotten shanked at county jail or maybe his little perjuring buddy Dorian Johnson would have shot him down in a beef over shoes or something similar. Mike Brown was a punka** who liked to bully people. He brought his fists to a gunfight and lost. If Mike Brown wouldn't have robbed a liquor store he would still be alive. Had he listed to a cop tell him to walk on the sidewalk, he would still be alive. Had he not assaulted a police officer and attempted to steal his firearm, he would still be alive.
