Poor Abused, Misunderstood Millennial
Of course what they forgot to mention:
(I suggest you simply skate through the hour plus video, but there are several still shots at the end that are interesting.)
What do these idiots expect? Buildings damaged, the mayor’s house with broken windows. If they are on the street chanting this crap, then they are subject to arrest. It was about time that the police stepped up their actions.
Whether the verdict was just or not–appeal it–don’t try to act like out-of-control drug addicts on a rampage. Either prosecution, defense, or both dropped the ball in presenting their sides of the argument as you can read below in Judge Wilson’s comment.
Excerpt from Daniel Levine article “Anthony Lamar Smith: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know” in Heavy.com.
Read the article HERE.
Smith was out on parole for theft charge at the time of the shooting. He also attempted to reverse ram the police vehicle then proceeded to attempt escape in a high-speed chase.
“This Court, in conscience, cannot say that the State has proven every element of murder beyond a reasonable doubt, or that the State has proven beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant did not act in self-defense,” Judge Timothy Wilson wrote in his ruling on September 15.
In his decision, Judge Wilson claimed in his experience, “an urban heroin dealer not in possession of a firearm would be an anomaly.”
Since the verdict, there has been unrest in St. Louis. On September 18, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that 80 people were arrested the night before after a peaceful protest became violent.
“For the third day in a row, the days have been calm and the nights have been destructive,” St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson said. “This is unacceptable. Destruction cannot be tolerated.”
So my question is — why all the people running around at night on the street? If it’s mostly a well-organized peaceful protest during the day (NOT, at least one reporter and camera man was accosted in broad daylight). Then ANYONE showing up on the streets at night in particular should be arrested the minute they begin to congregate and chant much less act like fools. NO MORE playing around. This has been escalating with every new incident because the activists believe nothing will come of it and they are in the right. Those that do not squelch this from the early moments have no one to blame but themselves for ENABLING CHILDREN TO THROW TANTRUMS regardless of who is hurt or what is damaged. Expecting enforcement to stand down or not use force short of shots fired (except when fired upon) is not only ridiculous but destructive. There are at least two major laws and one in particular refers to domestic terrorism that were broken even if we ignore unlawful assembly without a license.
Oh, but I forgot only conservative-labeled “hate groups and far-RIGHT” were included in that congressional DISAPPROVAL memo back in March or April. I wonder how quickly they would change their tune if they were surrounded, hounded, and their homes or places of business damaged or destroyed by the LEFT-WINGER groups? Maybe Pelosi should weigh in on that one, lol.
