The media says that the rioters and looters are coming "from somewhere else" . Now there's provocateurs getting people to do it? People should be held accountable for their own actions. Not pass the blame elsewhere. That's just how I feel about it. Accountability for all.
Provocateurs are a tried and tested method of operation. It's been around as long as we have warred against each other as organized bands.
I would almost 100% support that there are agent provocateurs in Ferguson. From who is always the question.It works, it's been shown over and over again that it does. Ferguson may have been local to start, but I doubt that's how things are now.
