Second off, this is going to be a disaster for North County and the region as a whole. Prepare for a NoCo exodus. North City is bad and now it's going to spread. This is horrible for our reputation nationwide as a metro area.

The exodus began decades ago and hasn't really stopped - but this will probably add some urgency to it for some who remained.

Honestly, it's fortunate no one was killed during the looting and rioting. The civilian in the taco bell was beaten, the two post dispatch photographers were assaulted, and I heard two different cops interviewed who claimed they heard bullets whizzing by them at different times and a police helicopter was reportedly shot at as well.

I heard this photographer on the radio this morning telling his story about last night:

Haven't seen many people in white sheets. The only people I see covering their faces are the looters. The communists are apparently out in force though:

Sounds like some stuff is happening at the Galleria Mall:

Police respond to St. Louis Galleria following 'multiple incidents' | KMOV.com St. Louis

Not sure if it has anything to do with last night - I know they've had a few incidents there over the years.

I'm sorry, but it's just kinda hard to take these people seriously when they behave like this. If a white person had struggled with a police officer for his gun and then got shot multiple times most people would have said, "what an idiot. He had it coming. Darwin awards." But when it's a black person all of a sudden that means it's indicative of racism and police brutality? And then that gives the community an excuse to riot, loot, and burn as they please? And now they're opportunistically attacking the Galleria Mall!?

Give me a break.
