many of todays young people neither understand nor respect the importance of property rights in a free society..
Philadelphia .. at least 30 police officers have been injured in the violent unrest, while dozens of people have been arrested for rioting or vandalism. Mobs have descended on Walmart and rushed out carrying TVs, while other agitators ransacked Footlocker for new sneakers. The full number of businesses ravaged by the destruction is increasing and still being tallied.
This latest outbreak simply adds to the thousands of businesses, from Chicago to Minneapolis and beyond, that have been rioted, ransacked, burned down, or looted in the ongoing period of political unrest over police brutality, both real and imagined. All told, the damage from rioting in recent months will exceed any past period of civil unrest in American history, with even modest under-estimates putting the total cost at up to $2 billion.
The outbreak of mass rioting and looting across America is alarming in its own right, but equally chilling is the publics support for the violence. .. college students in particular overwhelmingly believe that rioting and looting is justified.
One key finding from the poll was that 64 percent of college students agreed that the recent rioting and looting is justified to some degree. Only 28 percent disagreed with this assessment.
Property rights are human rights.
If business owners and investors cant feel secure in their property in an area, they take their investment elsewhere. This means that in areas that are looted, there are fewer jobs and fewer opportunities over time.

100% of home and business owners say shooting looters is justified.

“Good, lets riot at their houses then.”
That what these young people have been doing while living in the parents basements/houses.. looting. Stealing from daddy/mamma’s boyfriend billfold and/or mamma’s purse money or cards and of course stealing their stuff and selling or hocking it. They have just stepped their looting up from mamma’s living area to shops on the street. AND THE LAW ALLOWS IT.
Unless it effects them personally. Then it magically ceases to be justified.
