"I think the first message is to remind all law enforcement that they are hired to serve and protect and if they’re going to sit back and watch looting, they’re not serving us; they’re not protecting us,” Pastor Robert White told the station. A reporter from the station tweeted that police cars were seen driving past some of the stores being looted and did not respond."--FoxNews.com

Ferguson Riots: North County Business Owners (Some Armed) Survey the Damage
I'm former GSP. This silliness that it's always the blacks that are victims has to stop. I grew up in the 70s, and all the 70s TV taught was that it was always the whites that were ignorant and racist. Then when I got on GSP, I learned the hard way that there were a lot of racist blacks, some of them serving with GSP.
What it comes down to, is that there is a global elite, and they are playing us all off against each other.

At the 1:46 mark, Kurt Saxon explains:
"In 1965, the Watts section of Los Angeles erupted in rioting. Courageous young black resistance defied the system and destroyed their own environment. The police and national guard cordoned off the area as store after store was torched. The chaos moved on for 4 days and nights. On day 5 it stopped. The mailmen had refused to cross the battle lines to deliver welfare checks. The rioters had burned the grocery stores and were hungry. And without money to go out of the area to buy food they had to stop. When it was over, the commercial area of Watts was a smoldering wasteland. All the young revolutionaries got for their trouble was about 6 tv sets apiece."

Williams told James Kaplan of US Weekly:
“Yeah! Literally, it’s like possession ‑ all of a sudden you’re in, and because it’s in front of a live audience, you just get this energy that just starts going…But there’s also that thing ‑ it is possession. In the old days you’d be burned for it…But there is something empowering about it. I mean, it is a place where you are totally ‑ it is Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, where you really can become this other force. Maybe that’s why I don’t need to play evil characters [in movies], ’cause sometimes onstage you can cross that line and come back. Clubs are a weird kind of petri dish environment. I mean, that’s where people can get as dark as they can in comedy ‑ in the name of comedy, be talking about outrageous stuff and somehow come out the other side. I mean, that’s one place where you really want to push it”-- (Robin Williams, “Robin Williams,” by James Kaplan, US Weekly, January, 1999, p. 53).posted @ Friday, August 15, 2014 - 10:25

Higgins: No. It's simple economics. Today it's oil, right? In ten or fifteen years, food. Plutonium. And maybe even sooner. Now, what do you think the people are gonna want us to do then?
Turner: Ask them.
Higgins: Not now — then! Ask 'em when they're running out. Ask 'em when there's no heat in their homes and they're cold. Ask 'em when their engines stop. Ask 'em when people who have never known hunger start going hungry. You wanna know something? They won't want us to ask 'em. They'll just want us to get it for 'em!

Okay, I tried to present some music.
"It's no good to write a deliberate anti-drug song and hope that it will catch. Because the general thing is that people will be upset by that. It would disturb them to have someone else shoving something down their throat. So the best thing to do is offer something that seems ambiguous—that on study or on reflection actually can be seen to be "anti"—which the song "Cocaine" is actually an anti-cocaine song. If you study it or look at it with a little bit of thought ... from a distance ... or as it goes by ... it just sounds like a song about cocaine. But actually, it is quite cleverly anti-cocaine."---Eric Claptonposted @ Saturday, August 9, 2014 - 17:48

And last, for the same reason a dog licks himself in ways that we can't. Because he can and he is just reminding us of how good it is to be dog.
