Looting at Mondawmin Mall and elsewhere in Baltimore this afternoon apparently "stemmed from a flier that circulated widely among city school students via social media about a 'purge' to take place at 3 p.m., starting at Mondawmin Mall and ending downtown. Such memes have been known to circulate regularly among city school students, based on the film 'The Purge,' about what would happen if all laws were suspended."

(Thank you Hollywood.)

Police spokesman Capt. Eric Kowalczyk "would not speculate on whether the incident was related to Gray's death."

(I'm guessing the two are not totally unrelated.)

What a surprise, rioting and looting. Who would have thought. Just another peaceful demonstration. Smile

Martial law yet?
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

There should be no violence in the streets. It should be limited to police vans and interrogation rooms.

Is the implication here that somehow it is justified?

Police violence against suspects? No. Not justified.

Now that you are done being allegedly clever let me clarify.
Rioting to protest it. Is THAT justified in your mind?

Protesting yes. Rioting no.


So then you agree that what is going on there is not justified. Is that correct?

I agree that looting and destruction of property is unfortunate. People do notice it though don't they?

Which statement do you agree with? American police are going to have to learn that they can't angrily execute suspects. Or, Americans are going to have to get used to the police angrily executing suspects.

I wonder at what point most reasonable law abiding people think rioting IS justified.

Presumably there is a tipping point.

I can only speak definitively in terms of one extreme or another. If police were issuing traffic tickets frivolously, I would probably not riot. If police were invading homes in a community and killing innocent people in cold blood and the state was doing nothing about it, I think rioting (at the very least) would be warranted. But what is THE tipping point in between, that I don't know.

So how about yourself?

I think it depends on the nature of the rioting. The nexus between police activity and looting/torching private property is such that it's hard for me to think that what we're seeing is anywhere close to justified.
