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

    Funny. I don't remember White people rioting when the OJ circus ended?

    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.

    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.
