I feel like that's a very overly simplistic, unhelpful, and dangerous way to look at things.

Yes, there are times when even rioters are right.

Vandals, opportunists and looters, however, deserve any shit they get.

Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

Yes, let's just stand by and let absolute simpletons wreck entire neighbourhoods. If they stick to peaceful protesting, that's fine but rioting and attacking innocents is not fucking okay.

I find your way of looking at this situation particularly dangerous.

You can' t just line looters up and shoot them.....

Most won't stop a bullet....we might see collateral damage...

However - I can see an NJP sort of trial - and stretching some rope..... Let em hang for a while..... Wannabe looters might think twice......

Better yet - don't be a looting cunt and we won't need such drastic measures

Looting and rioting are not.

Sorry to break it to you OLB, but they are.

I was living just outside of DC for the 2004 election. It was shortly after the bombings of the subway system in Spain and the busses in London. I was really expecting the DC subway to get hit. And then one night in october I'm in my basement office and I hear the sirens and the helicopters going over. "Oh shit, here we go..." I think.

Nope, basketball game riot. $1 million damage to the downtown core for a mid-season game at a state school. I don't even know if they were rioting because they won or lost.

Riotters are half-wits and imbeciles but at least these ones are riotting for something a bit more important than a fucking basketball game.

I wasn't saying I condone violence, I was just saying shooting protesters is a ridiculous idea. It's not an either or situation here.

And considering this same sort of thing happened during the civil rights movement, it's not like rioting due to injustice is unprecedented or unexpected.

RE: No Shit Charlotte......
Fine, I'll say it. I condone violence.

The relevant question is whether or not it achieves the intended goal and, to that end, whether or not you have sufficient leverage against any possible opposing forces. It's just another option that may or may not work.

I don't believe that anybody ever suggested we "just stand by..."

And if there is a particularly dangerous way of looking at this it is the viewpoint that more shootings will somehow improve this situation.

Rioters are imbeciles that only hurt their cause. Assuming they even give a shit about the cause. But if we shot every fool we'd run out of people pretty damned quick and you'd be among the first up against the wall.
