Posted on 08/11/2014 1:27:07 PM PDT by RoosterRedux

Last night several businesses in Ferguson, Dellwood and North County were looted and torched following the death of 18 year-old Michael Brown.

A QuickTrip was burnt to the ground last night after it was looted in Ferguson.

Several businesses were vandalized and looted during the rioting.

But not this one…

They wouldn’t necessarily steal. They would destroy it.. as thugs tend to do.

Do rioters and looters normally demand quick free tattoos?

Even if they don’t steal anything, like ink, pens, sterilizers, decorations, etc - what’s the cost of a front window?

Ummm, sometimes these types (looters) burn down places that don’t have stuff to steal.

“What would the looters steal? INK?”

Autoclaves, the sterilyzers used on the tattoo equipment, are worth a couple of grand each on Ebay, depending on the type.

In the Watts riots buildings that didn't offer up 'stuff' to steal were often burned down.

When you're talking about 'looters' you're at the bottom of the human species. Really, look up 'lowlife losers' in the dictionary and you'll see pictures of looters next to the definition.

I don’t recall the last time white people rioted...

Still, this seems clear cut. The kid was unarmed and running away.

A drop of ink or a window; it’s private property. Thugs don’t necessarily steal, they can destroy.

Korean business owners protecting their property during 1992 LA riots

Pissed off at the police? Destroy property of small businesses.

Does that make sense? No? These riots are more about looting and new flat screen televisions than anything else. imo.

I was in Camden Nj during the riots in the 60’s. If thgere’s something to steal they’ll loot...otherwise they’re happy to destroy and burn.

Using the analogy of some liberal douche on msnbc regarding how unfair it was for Israel to have the Iron Dome when Gaza didn’t.... it is unfair of those shop owners to be able to defend their property because the thugs are unarmed.

---------------------->

These folk knew how to take care of business (in both sense of word business).

Koreans should be hired just to go to cities in flame. They know how to settle things down.

More jobs for Koreans. They prove they know what's what.

Personal bit of advise...get some grating and barricade a few feet back from the door to create a choke point.

If it comes to that. Ideally, running would be safer.

Some people just don’t understand, usually because they haven’t experienced much of life. It’s a nice way to live, but potentially very dangerous.

You remember the Korean store owners during the Rodney King riots? None of their stores were looted. I believe their weapons of choice were AK’s.

In this Photo you can see that the Five honkeys took a looter hostage
and took this photo just before cutting his head off.

Huh? Oh, I was mistaken. Nevermind.
