  1. Chas – are you defending the looters?
    What I saw was an out of control crowd breaking windows and doors. These criminals even went as far as to enthusiastically remove boards on stores that had been placed there to prevent looting and walked away with as many stolen goods as they could carry. Huge crowds of rioters and looters were on a mission to steal stuff and that’s exactly what they did. What do you think the consequences would have been if the police had stepped in to stop these criminals? Violence would have ruled the day. And then you would have yelled POLICE BRUTALITY. It is a sad day when there is no respect for law and order and the good men in blue who try to keep the peace. What on earth has this country devolved into? It is shameful that anyone could actually condone this thuggish behavior.

  2. What I remember about watching people loot was the police standing BEHIND stores being robbed, with protesters pleading with a few people to keep it peaceful. Of course, best for lbpd to wait until afterwards so a message of violence gets out and then ruin a few lives months later. You guys know people were looting because cops can’t seem to do their jobs right, right?
