That'll teach whitey. Nothing like destroying your own community and local black owned businesses in order to stick it to "the white man".

I was wondering when the guns would come out. The MSM didn't even report that a Ferguson McDonalds got shot up the night before sending at least 2 to the hospital. That is because no police were involved.

You know what? It's isn't really the people of Ferguson, MO that are out on the Streets enabling the destructive "peaceful" protests that turn to Violence, Looting & Burning - there are something over 20,000 "people of Ferguson" and just a fairly small amount of THUGS that are driving the Destruction, financed by those that will pay big money to Destroy ...... like George Soros.

BUT

Hiding away and allowing these Radicals and Outside Agitators is NOT working for them and IF they don't step up and take back their town -- they will self destruct.
They are true Enablers of the Destruction of Ferguson.

I get that they are afraid, I get that they don't want to be involved - BUT, if they came out in mass - they could stop it. They could give essential Back-Up to the few men that attempt to send people home. At some point - those "People of Ferguson" are going to have to decide if they want their small town to turn into a Disaster like Detroit OR if they want to try and take back their City and fight for it.

I thought that Last Year and I think it today - if they want a decent City/Town - they have take it back.

During the NYC blackout of 1977 the Italian neighborhoods set up guarded perimeters to keep outsiders out and had street parties, suffering no damage whatsoever.

Honestly this is what the city deserves. This your reward for scape goating an innocent cop and fanning the flames of racial unrest. All of this over some thug trash who got shot because he was trying to beat up a cop and take his firearm.

USA: Police arrests made as New Yorkers mark anniversary of Mike Brown killing
Yeah it's so stupid to "glamorize" Michael Brown. That kid was a criminal punk who deserved what he got. There ARE blacks who met unjust deaths at the hands of the police, but Michael Brown isn't one of them.

And even more people, especially blacks, meet unjust deaths by people other than the police.

Kind of unrelated, but wasn't Michael brown raised by his grandma?

That's is and will always be the main problem in my eyes. If your parents are losers, then you'll probably grow up a loser.

That would explain Obama.
