I just do not understand this. Why is it when ever a black man/woman is hurt or killed by a police officer it's a reason to destroy people's property, assault whoever cross's thier path, and steal anything that's not nailed down. If that was a white man and a black cop the white people would not go on the war path. Most of us would think he had it coming because if he wasn't fighting the police it would not have happened. Now do not get me wrong I'am not a racist, I'am just saying what everyone else is thinking. And what ever wrong's they may think has been done to them in my observation's most of them bring it on them selves.

I wish people would also take a good look at those involved in the protest. They are from various ethnicities, races and nationalities not just African-Americans.
