Honestly, if a person has time to riot, they're either a loser, or an unemployed bum, or both to begin with.
Yeah, but you can get some really cool stuff for free once the looting starts.
My sis lives in Cincinnati, in fact I'm at her house right now. I haven't seen any problems in her neck of the woods (College Hill, if you care). We went to eat tonight and nobody seemed too concerned.
From what I've gathered, there have been several shootings of unarmed black crime suspects lately. Someone tell me if that info is wrong. There are way too many dynamics involved with these kind of race relations to just say, "Inner city African-Americans do this stuff all the time and they're all bums or losers, etc..." Very few of us on this board know even a little regarding the community's state of mind.
The cool thing was that two of the mothers went to the press and officially denounced the rioting. Very cool. Hope it helps even a little.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off for a new TV.
