Truth be told, is there ever a good reason to riot and burn down businesses? In the cities where all the race based violence has occurred because of police shooting young black men, leftists have been in solid control for at least four decades. Did it ever occur to the residents of these places to vote out their so called leaders? Perhaps the lure of “free” benefits is too enticing to overcome with mere truth and reason.
When a mob burns down a business, private citizens lose their livelihood. In most of these cities, a business owner would face severe criminal penalties should they choose to defend their place of business with force of arms. Ever wonder why the rioters don’t burn down city hall instead? Isn’t it the police, ergo local government they are upset with? The truth is that police would shoot them down like dogs if they attacked a seat of government. The greater truth is that all the “free” benefits come from the very businesses they are setting fire to.
