51, Tilly - Persons of color (or any race / creed) that decide to break and enter, loot, steal, burn and pillage, especially in their own community, are making a terrible mistake. Locals businesses should not suffer the consequences of police actions, in addition to the fact it's breaking the law. Nevertheless City is absolutely correct. Self flagellation or mutilation is what it amounts to. I would like to think we all agree that our society could "do better" when it comes to situations like this no matter party. Personally speaking I see only failure at play here. Failure - white police offers choking a man out, literally to death. Failure - that a community is so frustrated that individuals literally burn down their "own" businesses. My personal belief is Americans are better than this. We need to have empathy, we need to support each other. Breakin heads is not the way to solidarity.
