I don't believe they should be rioting. Rioting and looting the streets does not relate at all to the events of Ferguson. Instead, the majority of rioters use it as an opportunity to loot stores and shops

I don't think they should be rioting. What happened was horrible and shouldn't have happened. But thats not an excuse to go on a riot and start destroying part of a city. By all means protest, but turning it violent was the wrong decision.

Blacks are 90% more likely to be shot by other blacks.Like I said. The folks at Ferguson ought to come out behind the police , locked and cocked. That would put a stop to the criminal activity there.For too long blacks in this country, not all, but too many , have been blaming " whitey" for THEIR failures in life.

We are not staying up at night figuring out how to keep the black man down.But the Al sharptons of the world are staying up nights waiting for any opportunity to keep the racial hatred alive . Then , like cockroaches, they come scurrying out from the woodwork.

Officer Wilson killed a criminal that was bent on killing him. That is as it should be. It was "little Mickey's"' racial hatred that killed him.He set the stage for his own death. Officer Wilson was an innocent bystander that propably would have liked being somewhere else.

Black male teens are 21 times as likely to be shot by a white police officer...
but yeah, protesting that is a hate crime.

Protesting fine. Even though it's obvious that was a self defense killing they can protest if they want but please don't riot and for gods sake stop the anti white hate crimes.

I think the folks in Ferguson should be rioting against the criminal rioters. Get out in force locked and loaded.

"No opinion is wrong"
But aren't we arguing opinions, therefore one of us would be wrong?
