The ghetto rats on twitter are already coming up with conspiracy theories and sending well-wishes to the shooter.

#BlackLivesMatter is being funded by Soros and his various "community" groups.
That came out last January.

It's no "grassroots" movement.

Apparently they are looting now as part of their protest.

Quote:
Crowd of 50 loot store

A crowd of about 50 people looted a beauty store in the St. Louis suburb and protesters grew confrontational late in the evening. There was no immediate word of any arrests.

Demonstrators had taken to the streets of Ferguson to mark the anniversary of 18-year-old Michael Brown's death in a fateful encounter on August 9, 2014 with officer Darren Wilson.
Pants up, don't loot!

Reportedly, two rival groups ( gangs?) were shooting at each other and then turned on The Police.

One person was hit.

Whether you are with the protesters our not, the overwhelming majority of protesters there are trying to create change peacefully.

I do think that nationally people vilify police too much. I also an not a fan of Grey, because he was a violent man. So the incident a year ago may have been justified. But there is no doubt already existing tension in the community before that happened.

There comments in this thread lead me to believe that they are right about many things. The way many of you just group everyone there together to sign negative labels sites that there is still a lot of ignorance that needs to be overcome.

They group themselves together chanting no peace and or else. Then you want to cry they arent part of the violence.

What do you think the protestors mean when they chant no justice no peace and justice or else? This is no peace. This is or else. This is the #blacklivesmatter movement.
Criminals shoot at cops with stolen semi automatic 9mm guns.

Is this the #blacklivesmatter movement?
