Don’t tolerate rioters and looting
The ongoing confrontation between police and rioters/looters in Ferguson, Missouri (a portion of northern St. Louis) is a textbook case of how not to handle violence in a community.
The protesters are going to believe what they want to believe, regardless of any video evidence or eyewitness accounts to the contrary. The ones who are rioting generally aren’t angry about a white policeman shooting a black thug who had just robbed a convenience store. They are just using the event as an excuse to riot, and to loot. And of course, the riots and confrontations with police are being fomented by Communists, anarchists and racists, many of whom have traveled from other cities to sow discord in St. Louis. And that’s not just the media I’m talking about, but actual “professional” rioters.
Now the police are simply standing their ground and letting the rioters do what they want to do, within a confined area. Screaming and throwing things are one thing, but looting and destruction of property is another. By allowing such behavior to continue, the police only encourage it. The best way to deal with it is to shoot them. Thugs only understand force, and force is what they should receive.
Of course, in Dear Leader’s post-racial, healed America, that’s unthinkable. It’s better to yield to whatever silly demands the protesters, rioters and looters make. Which just encourages more bad behavior.
No, shooting them is definitely the way to go. But the police and the federal government (under the racist eye of Attorney General Eric Holder) will not do it, so citizens will have to do it, eventually, if the thugs don’t get tired of rioting first.
Meanwhile, the media loves this tempest in a teapot. It’s the best thing since the Los Angeles riots in 1992. The media gets to scream their favorite meme that “America is racist,” and the nightly video of riots helps give the talking heads on television something to talk about.
The best thing to do is to turn off the cameras, shoot the rioters and looters, and walk away. Neither will happen very soon, unfortunately.
