Hands Up, Don't Loot

The interior of the Ferguson Market and
Liquor Store is littered with broken bottles and scattered snacks.
Despite the plywood boards covering the windows and doors, looters with
their faces covered in bandanas helped themselves to anything they could
find as those who came to memorialize Michael Brown carried on his
The violence in Ferguson didn't begin when a police officer shot Michael
Brown. It began when a 300 lb thug robbed the Ferguson Market and
abused a clerk. The release of the video showing the obese criminal
assaulting the clerk led to a terrified statement from the store manager
that he had not called the police and had nothing to do with the
release of the video.
â€œThey kill us if they think we are responsible," he said.
That is what this conflict is about. The police exist so that Ferguson... (more)
The Common Ills Iraq snapshot

This is a most valid question. The answer should be yes, of course. The reality is, I mourned my mother years ago.
