In the post I responded to, you made assumptions about the mental state of the looters. Specifically stating that they didn't care that the young man was killed but were merely opportunistic looters. But when I make assertions about their mental state two minutes later, then it is not an appropriate tactic? Are you 1. that unaware of what you are writing or do you 2. lack any semblance of self-respect and civility in civil discourse?

Grunt once for option 1. or twice for option 2.



I would think that their mental state would be quite apparent by their actions. Breaking into a store and stealing some sneakers or booze is not indicative of "caring about the death of the young man" and very indicative of being opportunistic looters.

I'd suggest that it is pretty obvious.

Some updates

A mall-goer tweeted that there was rioting and looting going on in the Galleria and they (the tweeter) managed to get out just before the police charged in.

Interestingly, ISIS is not a group of diverse people who came from all parts of the world and blended together. America is the "Melting Pot", as many of us learned in grade school. You just cannot throw that many different cultures together and expect everyone to be a cohesive whole without some rules. Our rules are generally based on the Constitution, so if people do not respect that, we are going to have problems. There has been an attack on Constitutionalism in this country the last few decades, with Progressives especially, but in general TPTB telling us that the Constitution is a living document and must be allowed to be manipulated(to reflect the socialist and globalists agenda TPTB want).
The people on that side of the globe appear to want Sharia Law and they want to bring it to wherever they happen to migrate. Sharia Law is not compatible with the US Constitution, so we are going to have serious problems if they try to subplant our Founding Document. Socialism is something which can seriously undermine the stability of our country, as we have been functioning under Capitalism and somewhat free market economy, although it has been degraded by some monopolistic tendencies by giant corporations, but if we try to replace with statist economy we will just end up like Russia, only with more diverse elements. If we do not respect the Law in this country there will be violence like we are seeing in Missouri now. I am not getting into elements like Occupy or other Soros invented protest groups, but that is an element to be considered right now.

You mean Fox I guess, so why hasn't Fox reported such things? Everything else is liberal. But don't fret, now, there there, would it make you feel better if I just say the "controlled press"? Anyway, AP is the fount from which almost all our news reporting is released. Although I did actually forget about the one guy that got beat up in a black community, and the voting stuff with the New Black Panthers.

Try reading the link I provided from sources that are actually there.

The looting has nothing to do with racism as it is purely wanton opportunism.

I was flipping through the MSM late last night before bed and heard them say that the community went to the tire center and took all the tires and other stuff to keep it safe from looters. hahalol THEN, they said repeatedly that these looters "came from other places". lol These liberals and their excuses and cover-ups........

I bet the looters who took all the shoes, gold jewelry and hair extensions just took it back to their apartment for safe keeping. What great citizens!!!!!! haha

The second that cops couldn't do anything they should've called in the national guard and put a stop to it. Instead, they just sit by and let the looters loot. Send in the military.

No, go ahead and call it Liberal Media, I don't care. All I'm saying is that there is also Conservative Media out there too with it's own bias so I don't see why the Right is always screaming about the Liberal Media as if they don't have their own conservative media. Oh, that's right, it's because the Right just loves playing the victim and believe they are being persecuted all the time. Nothing pleases them more than the idea that the world is against them but because God and the Truth is on their side, they keep fighting the good fight.

It's a clever tale, for those foolish enough to believe it.

Everyone knows the media is mostly liberally biased. It's been that way for decades. Why deny it?

Oh yeah, does everyone Know that. I might agree that perhaps cable news media is more liberal, aside from Fox obviously, but not all media. Hell, where I live we don't even have one liberal radio station. I'd say within print media they're about equal with each other.

Another problem is that, especially now, the Right has become so Far Right that anything would be considered Liberal to what they've become. Even being a moderate Conservative now isn't good enough. Unless you're a Flag Waving, Gun Collecting, Bible Thumping, Immigrant Hating, Corporate Loving Conservative you may as well be Pinko Commie, French Canadian, pot smokin' Hippy in their eyes.

I have a friend in St. Louis posting about what's going on there. This is what he posted on facebook

Last night. .that # was light...but if the cop that killed mike brown gets off....ITS GOING DOWN!
His friend responded with this

The National Guard is already here... Ready to move in a moments notice. U better realize that "they" want to war with us?! It's already planned. Just like they plan everything else. They've already calculated the losses they'd incur. It's called Collateral Damage. They moved the heavy military equipment in last year, from what I've heard. North County is planned for a siege?!?!! Eventually...

So the police shot someone and the appropriate response is to ruin your own neighborhood? I never understood that. And then the left winders why there is such a dearth of stores and businesses willing to locate into these neighborhoods. Food desserts indeed.

I'm sorry the kid was shot, but this will not solve anything.

It is actually fairly typical of the people involved. It is something they always wanted to do, but now feel justified because of their mob mentality. "Oh look, a cop shot Timmy". Never verifying why, etc. "I'm gonna get that flat-screen I've always wanted!".

That isn't retaliation against the people who MAY have committed the offence...it is just an excuse to do something they apparently always wanted to do. But probably didn't because of the fear of being arrested. It is people like this that are one of the major problems within our country. Those who feel stealing or taking is just fine. They don't even care if they are taking from people of their own group. These people are nothing but leeches on society and the same mentality goes into how they vote. "Who is going to give me something?". THAT is not how you vote, and this is not how you conduct your life as a law-abiding, human being. These are the actions of the corrupt, thieves and animals that care more about "me" than anything.

Left to thrive...these takers will bleed the non-taker dry until nothing is left but a dead shell of a society and country. Shame on all of you! You are the problem!

May I make a logical suggestion? If where we are going as a society is crashing. If nothing this administration and government have tried are benefitting, protecting and helping us as a society...maybe...the opposite, or at least something different is the right direction? It is one thing to WISH that progressive actions would work and an entirely different thing to watch them fail in action and still support them.

Life is actually full of easy choices. If it hurts when you take option number one...option number two may be a better choice. It is insanity to keep saying "Option number one hurts...but I like it...so I'm going to keep doing it".

a reply to: WeAreAWAKE

Well if option one is what we have now and option two is the Crazy Conservatives and option 3 is the even more crazy Radical Tea Party then I'll hold out to see what option four might be.

You think this is bad??? We're gearing up for another election soon and what have we got on the table so far??? We've go the Conservatives who either give us some Religious nut job and/or Corporate lapdog. Or you have the Liberals who give us Hillary, which so damn frightening I don't know where to begin. She'll do anything to get in and payback whoever can get her in there with whatever they want. Meaning, once again, another Corporate Lapdog among other things. Then there is the Tea Party and they're crazier than sh*t house rats. Beyond that are some other people which we'll never hear from anyway so why bother. Basically all players will be bought and sold before they start warming up for the race anyway. So as bad as you may think it is now, not too far in the future you'll look back and think these were the glory days!!

Funny how the Molon Labe Brigade disappear when there are black people in the picture. Some folks, it seems, are more equal than others.

How so? I think everyone of the "Molon Labe" brigade has voiced support for the African American shop owners who used firearms to protect their shops. The issue of this rioting is not about race, and this is poor use of the race card, but rather criminal activities that are directed against largely black owned and/or operated businesses.

I want law abiding Americans, even "black" Americans to be able to defend themselves from criminals. How is that racist?

I did.
I am pointing out that rioting and throwing rocks at police(also in your article that I read) may cause them to use tear gas.

Then later I posted a link that shows anecdotal evidence that there was looting on the second night. I also saw television news reports that said there was looting on the second night, making your point moot.

Am I dreaming, or did the photo of armed people in front of a store (that did NOT get looted) show both black and white people.
Not that it should be an issue.

You are correct, there were men of various ethnicities in that picture and they all had one thing in common, defending their property from the lawless.
