Hmm. It was on live TV during a speech that police were fired upon first.

IMO, they should do like they have done in Baltimore and pull back. See how long the criminal apologists continue to go on about it then.

The problem with that is most of the people living there are innocent people and it will just punish the business owners and regular residents. I would rather see the police shoot back at anyone threatening their lives and arresting the rest of them that jump barriers etc.

Innocent people who apparently are quite happy with the current status quo of demonizing the cops at every turn, putting up memorials to criminals and running around with roasted pigs heads named after cops. At some point people have to take responsibility for the community they live in.

There are over 21,000 people in Ferguson, are you telling me all 21,000 people are rioting and running around with pig heads? The purpose of paying taxes to police departments is so you are protected from criminals. What pissed me off most about the riots last year were the innocent business owners. Trust me, they weren't the ones rioting saying, "hey come rob my store and trash it, I spent my life savings on it, come let's destroy it!"

You are basically saying, let's allow criminals to control our cities. I believe in law and order and if people break the law they need to face the consequences.

Exactly how many of these 21,000 people have stood up and organized something in support of the business owner who was robbed by Darren Wilson.

Ahh yeah. I thought so.

So, you are saying because people didn't become vigilantes and start a turf war, they deserve to live in hell? Isn't that why we pay taxes? Most normal people are in their homes that late at night, many are sleeping around that time when the riots happened. Do you set your alarm clock at night to wake up and check the news in case there are any riots or break-ins, so you can strap ammo clips around your waist and go rambo? Do you hear how ______ you sound?

add*** Seriously lol, when there is a robbery in the city you live in, do you go running to the scene packed and loaded?
also*** Darren Wilson didn't rob any stores...

Answers to your questions:
  1. Nope. It was a fallacious question.
  2. The question isn't about "we". Another fallacious question.
  3. Nope. Normal people, as you refer to it, are not in bed at 8pm.
  4. Fallicious question about alarm clock & rambo.
  5. I'm not one asking fallacious question & posing nonsense as argument.
  6. Fallacious question.
You are right. I made a typo. So you got that one on me.



My point is proved. Your response to my questions is to make it about me instead of addressing what was said. This is commonly done by those who don't like something, but can't argue against it with logic and fact. Get back to me when you think you can.

Point of fact: it was a whole pig.

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.
how do you fight a billionaire funding a pack of jackal radicals with an agenda?

Bottom line here is the Progs know that this agitation keeps people in fear of police. and Police=Republican.

At the end of the day this is simple presidential math. Obama isn't running. Minorities are not nearly as excited this time around as the last time around. keeping Black folk scared and riled up drives them to the polls to pull the lever for the Prog.

all of this is just this.

You could have 10,000 black ghetto bastards see one of their own fire on a cop, get shot in response, then swear up and down he was unarmed and helping old ladies cross the street when the cops murdered him for no reason.

I...do not understand this circling the wagons around worthless thugs.
