Automatically assume that there would be riots after the verdict?  Like I was reading about businesses closing, etc, it is crazy how they just automatically assume that there would be riots just because he was black?

I bet it if was a white guy killed by a black cop they wouldn't have automatically assumed that therew ould be riots, and I doubt businesses would have closed.

I thought it was because of the rioting and looting that has happened since August. Also, businesses have previously been looted and vandalized.

Thanks for the comments. Honestly, I didn't think there would be a single riot. Then I turn on the news and there are fires and a large group of people are TURNING OVER A POLICE CAR. Does anyone know if a cop was inside the cop car? I kind of wonder if the cop was black too. Like they overturned the police car of a black cop? Just wondering.

No.  It's simpy reality.

I thought the protests would remain peaceful. For the most part in other cities around the US, they are. It's just Ferguson that's kind of fucked up right now.

I would assume there would be rioting because there has already been rioting.  If there had been no rioting I wouldn't assume rioting would happen.

That's because in general. White people don't riot.

Well- it's called the truth.    There IS such a thing as "profiling".   The FBI knows and does it, Israel does- to keep their airports safe,  profiling... when you know how certain people are going to behave.

If it is racist then ALL of us are racists because we KNEW this was going to happen.   Everyone knew it. 

Animals. just animals.   And people say Preppers are nuts... look at how fast the animals run amok and loot and I bet people will die too before this is over.
