Images of looting in Ferguson are starting to circulate. Expect to be inundated with them. It’s all about discrediting justice & justifying cop terror. Looting is always the main charge against Blacks from Ferguson to Hurricane Katrina to Haiti. Think combustible injustice. In a situation like Ferguson, think also agents provocateurs.
Shaking the naughty finger at looting is a moralistic, presbyterian response to acute social trauma. Use the finger for something more useful.
