  1. It’s really too bad that people were not able to confine their rage solely towards the police. Too many other building are in flames.
    The cops is the object of your rage, so why burn buildings when the cop is standing right there?
    But I heard one pig may already be comatose and many of their vehicles in flames.

    People are at a point now where they are convinced that no justice will be served in any of these cases. They know that after the state prosecutors either fail to bring charges or fail to convict, all Obama is going to do is open a probe, wait for a year for folks to settle down, then claim that he couldn’t find anything.
    That’s what he did with Trayvon Martin and that’s what he’s going to do with Eric Garner.
    So if people want justice, it’s now or never.

  2. Rioting and looting run contrary to justice and the memory of Freddie Gray. The relationship between law enforcement and the Black community is impacted by broad sociological forces. Police, including the FBI and other federal law enforcement, are a reflection of greater society.

    Consider Black men having an unemployment rate of 10.4, Black women 8.9, White men 4.8, and White women 4.1. The text messages of law enforcement officers that exposed racial hatred toward African Americans would surely be found on the cell phones of corporate executives.

    As our culture values or devalues Black Americans, so follows police.

  3. That’s what’s wrong with our people, don’t take your anger out on your own people ,get mad at the police …… Why would you destroy were you live that’s crazy.

    • Yeah Maro. Why didn’t they descend upon the police station. Two reasons. They’re cowards and there are no Air Jordans and big screens to be had the police station. Only a bullets. Jungle Justice.
