Oakland, what do you expect. That shithole would riot no matter what the outcome was.

In San Francisco, raucous, yet peaceful protesters marched on the city’s Mission District neighborhood;

the Mission District being a largely "hispanic" nieghborhood oddly enough.....while the rioters in Oakland simply headed Downtown....

Things were quiet in Detroit. Then again, they would cover it up unless it was really large scale and couldn't be denied.

Whats the point in stopping them anyway? Let the burn that shit stain to the ground, they would be doing the city a favor.

You know, the only thing this has to do with the verdict, is that it gives them a reason to act this way.

The point of stopping a riot is to protect the innocent and their property. There are lots of things in Detroit worth saving, 700,000+ human beings being part of that equation.

Quite in Detroit?

That is strange, very strange.

We have a mayoral election this fall, and the governor appointed an emergency manager to the city a few months ago. The mayoral election is actually really funny right now-Mike Duggan, a former county executive and prosecutor who is most recently known for his role as CEO of the Detroit Medical Center (he saved it from bankruptcy) filed too early for the primary (he was supposed to wait two more days, having to do with residency requirements as he moved into the city to run for mayor) has been taken off the ballot because another candidate challenged it. So he is running a write-in campaign. He's a white guy, too.

The guy who challenged Duggan's eligibility is one Tom Barrow, who actually bankrupted a hospital in the 80s/90s, and lost at least twice in landslides to Coleman Young in the 80s. He has no prayer of winning and his biggest claim to fame is that he's Joe Louis' nephew. He just wants to take the white guy out of the race, because the white guy is polling surprisingly high numbers at the moment.

Former Police Chief Benny Napoleon is also running. He's a good guy, but doesn't really have much experience with financial issues. Women like him because he's good-looking. He's come across as kind of a lightweight in interviews, but he was a good police chief under Mayor Archer. Before he was chief, he was the guy who solved the Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan case.

If Duggan comes in 1st or 2nd in the primary, his name will be on the Nov. ballot, although if Barrow comes in 3rd, I'm pretty sure he will file some kind of lawsuit like he did over the primary ballot.

You forget those 700K would be doing the rioting so they'd be doing the destroying.

Or Casey Anthony, or when Brian Terry was murdered, or after Obama was re-elected, or...

No, maybe 200-300 would be rioting and the rest of the residents would be trying to protect their homes and families.

I guess they took the Lord's day off from rioting and took Monday off just because. Ridiculous. :blue:

Or maybe even less.

People would be surprised what a small percentage of the population the actual rioters were. The saddest thing is that most of the people who get hurt by these "uprisings" are not rioters and are vehemently opposed to what they are doing. After the Rodney King trial, the LA riots (burnings, really) mostly hurt the working class black WOMEN who were not part of any of the nonsense. These were good women whose supermarkets and drug stores were burned down, who were now going to have to travel miles on a city bus to get groceries because they couldn't walk down to the local Vons or Thrifty Drugs. I always felt supremely sorry for these women.

People forget that there are good working class folks who live in and around the "bad" areas of town. These folks are just trying to get by, and every time the local thugs start rioting, these nice people are the ones that suffer.

Interesting to know that, but I should apologies, it was a lame inside joke at "Its quite in Detroit".

Ever see the movie American Carol?

The scene where Mikey Moore is taken to what looks like post Apocalyptic America, gun fire heard all around, a woman screaming in the distance, boarded up abandoned buildings every where. A burning wreck of a car right near by. And Mikey Moore says, "Ah, good to be back home", the camera pans off to the right to a sign that reads, "Welcome to Detroit".

Los Angeles officials late Monday night commended police in their response to violence following a protest of the George Zimmerman verdict and vowed to crack down on similar actions beginning Tuesday.

Those Californicationers just want an excuse to riot...even an out of state judgement is a good enough excuse to damage other people's property.
