In Ferguson, Missouri, a young black man attacks a policemen and is killed. In Salt Lake City, a young white man, said to be unarmed, was shot by a black police officer. Why is it that some members of the Black community feel that any unfavorable result of a struggle between a black man and a white cop justifies rioting, looting and destruction? Where are the leaders of the Black community? Why isn't this behavior more actively discouraged? Why does it appear that the Black community is the only race to continually react this way? History, even U.S. history, is full of events and periods where races are unfairly targeted. The Irish, the Chinese, the Japanese, the Jewish, to name a few were . Slavery is as old as history itself. Other races that had been enslaved don't continually act in this manner. Even now, other races and followers of different beliefs are exterminated because of their race or beliefs. The Black community, as a whole, needs to use more restraint. They aren't the only peoples to be treated unfairly. Perhaps young black people wouldn't be feared, held in suspicion, or stereotyped as much, if the Black community was more activily discouraging the "thug or hoodlum" behavior and mentality that some young black men and women display. All races have good and bad people, but other races don't take such extreme measures to defend the acts of their unruly citizens. Finally, if I were a cop and someone points a gun at me or if someone tries to get my gun,or attacks me, I'm sure that I would go into self preservation mode and defend myself. Some situations call for the use of deadly force to defend yourself, especially if you're a cop. I think the big part of the problem is the break down of the family. The Bible says to respect your elders. I would imagine that similar principles are fundamental to almost every religion. When children aren't taught and expected to uphold these basic ideals when they're young, society suffers.

Most demonstrators were peaceful. The ones who weren't were hopefully arrested. Given how the district attorney chose to handle the case, and the conflicting eyewitness accounts, I can understand that people were angry.

I thing it didn't help matters when people with different agendas arrived and the scene. Some were trying to get the crowd more upset for to get publicity and worse yet to use the event as a way to personally gain from it.

absolutely, this is a global problem now.this is not a issue with a particular country or religion now. even countries like India which once supposed to be one with high social & moral value are now suffering from such problem. basic problem is with the moral degradation of individuals as well as the society as a whole. when we elders are always running after easy money and feeling jealous with others success how can we expect bringing up new generation with high moral value?
