Title: It's sad this is what gives St. Louis a horrible rep
Post by: johncw on 08/11/2014 06:06 AM
It's really sad because there are so many good things about St. Louis and this kind of thing is just horrible.

CNN Headlines and everything.

It's kind of like "bad fans" in sports John.... as much as you hate to admit it, it happens everywhere.

And something like this where a teen was shot by a cop, right or wrong, are always going to add napalm to the fire.

The investigation will be key in guilt, but when you go after the gun of an officer, IMO you get what you asked for, the other end of it. It isn't a good excuse for violence and looting either. The family has already retained the attorney from the Trayvon Martin case and Jesse and Al will surely stick their noses in the whole mess

I hate to hear that any young adult gets shot by the police. It does sound excessive based on reports. I will NEVER understand how looting businesses comes to mind as the correct course of action for any reason. A lot of those areas already look run down and now it will will just look worse. I just can't understand wanting to ruin the town you live in.

Exactly.  And the press likes to stoke that fire.

It is real sad. One or two rotten apples in a crowd are enough to turn a peaceful demonstration into a brawl.

That's human nature for you.
