I'm just looking back and realizing it would have been smarter to just bring them in at the outset before the whole community is set ablaze. There either needed to be an arrest, or a curfew. No arrest and no curfew is vandalism waiting to happen. I don't know why the arrest took so long. Did they have to wait for a cause of death determination?

    Then you city folk aren't as protective as us rural folk. We'll stand and protect what is ours from violent thugs and thieves, you can go run and hide.

    For starters I would have thought there would have been violence only if it was announced he wasn't charged, not in the meantime while we wait.

    You announce a curfew on a largely black protest and the cries of racism will be heard from coast to coast. That's why you don't do it. It would be fuel on the fire.

    You're talking about a City here with several million people. It's not a small rural town. It's not that people in the City don't care but it's not like an area with a few blocks of a downtown. You have thousands of people, who aren't armed, and you can't control all of them.

    All it takes are a few people with balls to stop a mob. And the type of firepower needed is not lethal. Tear gas is not lethal and will change your attitude in a hurry.

    Precisely.

    The concerned community is out there in the daylight, carrying BLM signs, marching in an orderly group.

    The ne'er do wells are drawn to the occasion, bringing a different agenda.

    The grieving mothers and families are not out there after dark destroying their own community.

    Any political view which believes they are is only using that as a basis to augment a pre-determined position.
    Of course, as usual, in the absence of actual EVIDENCE, libs always resort making shit up

    The reality is most people don't want around with weapons and tear gas that aren't cops. I think the looting f'ing sucks but I'm not risking my life to save a Target store. That's the job of the police.

    Now you see a few owners standing in front of their stores and that's a different story.

    Exactly...all it would have taken was a couple bombs dropped on Cliven Bundy and his terrorist horde to kill the rabid Conservatism we see today.

    No. I don't own any weapons and I'm not trying to die over protecting someone's store. There are numerous protests in Oakland and San Francisco where groups break off and do property damage. I'm not going out as a human shield. I was in South Central L.A. during the Rodney King riots, I was not walking out into the streets as a human shield.

    That's not the hill I'm dying on.

    You city people pass each other every day. you know each other. You live in hundreds of tiny cubicles in the same cement box. You must have lots of friends, or at least acquaintances.
    Why on earth wouldn't you want to protect your city? There's far more of you in the city than there are of us out here in rural America, yet we'd go help our neighbors protect their property.
    Your point is taken, though....I guess...

    There are almost one million people who live in San Francisco and hundreds of thousands of others that visit here on a daily basis. I know very few of these people. I don't have a schedule of protests where I gather a group of people and go to each one to make sure nothing happens in these protests. It doesn't work that way. It's why we have cops. That's their job.

    I am in no way shape or form supporting the looters or suggesting it is ok. But this isn't a small town that has one coffee shop, one market, one theater etc. There are many parts of SF I've never visited. If someone throws a rock through a building in that area I'm not going there to die over it.

    I never assumed you had a schedule of protests, don't go retard on me. I'm just curious why people who live so close to each other wouldn't lift a finger to help their neighbors.
    I guess we're just very different the way we live our lives and what we see every day and from the people we come in contact with.
