What confuses me is how some folks are deducing that the demonstrators are also doing the looting...you know, making a connection and tying it all
together. They can't be in 2 places at once. It should be evident that there are more then one group of people relevant to all of this. I feel like
every demonstration I ever heard of ends up this way. It will be peaceful and then, all of a sudden, someone throws a bottle or something...I call
them "pot stirrers". I swear, there are folks that just do such to try and ruin a harmless event, or instigators/agent provocateurs that join in to
screw things up. As far as the looting, that can very well be individuals from out of the area and/or not involved in the demonstrations...folks
seizing the moment to take advantage of the situation, folks that don't care at all about the shooting. The bad aspect to that is they spoil what was
trying to be accomplished...the attention that people were trying to get about what happened and they turn it into a 3 ring circus of violence and
mayhem and the protesters suffer the consequences.
When something gets thrown at police during one of these things, I get to feeling in just about every case, it is a "managed"/staged occurrence with
a purpose in mind and only rarely an actual violent, angry person. Why would they want to ruin what they were trying to accomplish? Does not make
I am glad to see Capt. Johnson of the State Police there in Ferguson and it is my hope that all will go well. He seems like a decent, stand up guy and
one folks can relate to and work with...lets hope so. Such a tragic situation all the way around.
