Go home. Do something constructive for a change, not Destructive. The boy was wrong in the first place. Why aren't you addressing that? Your pointless and non-productive rioting is only making your race look like wild animals and innocent people, including your own, are getting hurt. Use all this energy you have in finding better methods of improving your situation, not using the boy's death as an excuse to vent your frustration of your self-imposed lifestyle. You choose to riot, loot and hurt other people. Aren't you being a little hypocritical? Your buddy Sharpton certainly isn't helping you. He's just adding fuel to the fire that doesn't need to be. It's not about race. Think about it.

I agree with # 1. I feel sorry for the people who stores were burn down and items that were rob. I am outrage the the police did not protect the stores and staff.

looters care nothing about a cause, only an opportunity to steal a bunch of stuff.
our president has now waded into this..........people are being murdered at a wholesale rate in chicago and iraq and this is what he is concerned about..........shows you where his priorities lie.

Eric Holder waded into it too, telling the Ferguson police not to release the store video of the thug committing a strong-arm robbery minutes before he was shot. They released the video anyway.

what makes me wonder though is how does burning down and looting YOUR OWN neighborhood solve anything?

10 days from now, the media and troublemakers will have left town and they STILL won;t have the services of the stores they destroyed FOR MONTHS..........it's tragic when ANY young persons life ends suddenly. families will NEVER get over their grief.........but this tried response never does any good.

they're excessively emotional and their instinctual outlet for their aggression is destroying things they don't have.

it's a defect of the species.

Many of the stories that were destroy were own by black people with many black employees. Shame on the thugs and bullies.

People that have worked all their lives have lost everything.stop the looting and marching. Go home and read a book...this kid did not have a pair of wings on....The video that was released shows that. A picture tells a true picture....

It is a shame a young man died, even though it seems he was not so innocent. He was some ones child. The people who are looting and causing trouble are just using this event to loot and steal. Then comes the racist A l"BIG MOUTH" Sharpton to incite the crowds even more. They put a high ranking intelligent Blk Officer in charge. This did not work either as the looters have no respect for anyone.

HOW could ANYONE call a 6'4" 300 lb monster innocent when it's shaking-down storeowners?
He was some ones child.
Well, at least the mother's name is on record...

Doing what is instinctive.

Which is how it earns its living.

Yeah, but biden didn't call him a "mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean
and a nice-looking guy" which apparently makes all the difference in the world.

Even those mooks know enough not to buy the bullsh!t anymore.

Where were these rioters during all previous drive-bys when their little kids were being shot just because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time? Where were they when bullets poked holes in their walls and a sleeping baby was killed in her crib. Where were these people when their streets were lit up with bullets from gangs and they knew the shooters were their own people? Why didn't they use all this energy and rioting during those times to put pressure on finding the shooters? Weren't they just as upset back then when other black "innocent" neighbors and kids were killed? The answer is - because they were BLACK shooters and they didn't want to get "involved".
Not all the facts have been told about this youth who was shot by the white officer and yes, it may have been a wrongdoing by the officer, but that has yet to be determined but wouldn't you put just as much effort into finding those drive-by shooters as you are doing now against the white officer?
NOW who is racist? And where is Sharpton during all these drive-bys? I'm sure the innocent drive-by victims were unarmed also and the baby in the crib certainly didn't have an AK47. So what's different? Come on POS Sharpton, answer that one.
