Ferguson MO

I feel for everyone effected, and worry about the people who live there.

My fear is that when the verdict comes out the destructive outsiders who have flooded the area in the past will riot.

Even Michael Brown's family has asked that people not become destructive, but that they want their son's death to help things change for the better - and violence is NOT the answer.

Re: Ferguson MO

I feel the same way. My gut tells me there will be a riot no matter what the Grand Jury decides.

Re: Ferguson MO

It is sad... We were watching the initial videos where the looters were destroying business and some of the them were running out of the stores carrying stuff. One in particular where this looter was running away with an armful of liquor. It's ridiculous.

Re: Ferguson MO

Round 2.

I feel so bad for everyone involved - the peaceful protesters and the police both.

Re: Ferguson MO

all it takes is a bad apple or two to destroy progress


I don't remember who said it, but there's a saying/quote that I'll paraphrase

Any jackazz can kick down a door, but it takes skill to build something

Re: Ferguson MO

Just out of curiosity, I checked on homes for sale in Ferguson. Lots of foreclosed property. Homes ranging in sale from under 10K to 200k.

Ferguson really took an economic hit.
