Saw a lot of people on Twitter complaining about police presence and "marshall law" and all sorts of crap yesterday.  Exactly WHAT sort of a reaction do you EXPECT when YOUR citizens start going out and looting, burning, and pillaging YOUR OWN COMMUNITY?

All kinds of people talking about race war... but the pictures show a mostly white police force, and a mixture of white and black people doing the looting.  The pictures don't show people being beaten, they don't show a race war.  They show police attempting to keep the peace, while some groups of people are off tearing shiat apart, burning shiat down, and stealing whatever's left over.

C'mon people.  Don't do this to yourselves.

Yeah, the pretend libertarians on my feed are having a shiat fit since the weekend.  According to them, the iron curtain is here already, and it's only a matter of time until the cops come for us all.

/Agreed.  i can understand being upset at the death of a young gangster that was killed while trying to kill a police officer, because derp, but using that as an excuse to loot and burn is bullshiat.  They are just looking for a reason to do so.  I have no problem with cops clubbing people stealing tvs and dvd players or whatever from honest people.  Way to reinforce the stereotype.

/But there is no profit and "fun" in your logic. How would they be able to steal that new dvd, or tv, without an excuse?  shiat, apparently they are of the mind that they should just be allowed to loot and pillage and burn just because?  With no police reaction.  And they are surprised when the cops show up with riot gear and dogs.  They are either morons or opportunistic trolls.

Remember that this is still 4chan we're talking about. Some of them look to have grown up, which is why they've largely cut it out with penny-ante prank jobs sending some dude 600 pounds of sex toys or whatever. Their campaigns have gotten a lot more serious as time's gone on. And they know they have their limits, albeit quite high limits: they did back down from the Mexican drug cartels.

But they still don't quite have their target selection honed quite right. They're a lot better than they used to be, but they are still 4chan.

Psst: The people doing the looting aren't from Ferguson. so, it's not their community. In fact, I'm pretty sure gang members don't give a shiat about any community.

They don't care about collateral damage. The Japanese arm of anonymous hit a company I do some consulting for a few weeks ago and totally farked a lot of people over. I had a few gigs canceled because they were cleaning up the damage (money out of my pocket), and clients and customers were complaining that their passwords and information had been compromised. The ironic (stupid?) thing is, anonymous targeted them for misusing people's private information.

2014-08-13 12:10:58 AM
I think this will have a different effect than you guys think. It can serve to make the officers of the department paranoid of their own techology and hinder efforts at cover-ups. It can also demotivate future corruption, from whatever implied scandal occurs when contrary evidence goes viral.

I dont claim that's good or bad here my thought didn't go that far.

Barring the media from the area is essential to keep douchebag looters from using the media to let their friends know where to assemble and where the cops aren't, and to prevent the riot from spreading outside the immediate nexus of the riot. It was not done in L.A. in 1992, and was part of the reason there were ancillary "riots" and looting in places like Hollywood, Anaheim and San Bernardino--because people saw the activity on TV and went out and participated in some anarchy that they otherwise wouldn't have. As long as the police keep their PIOs available to the media and keep them informed of events in the area--and as long as the blackout lasts no longer than immediately necessary to get the riot locked down--it is not a problem.

Innocent people standing on their own property in the middle of a riot are still required under law to obey instructions to get inside when told to do so by a uniformed officer; the more so when there is civil unrest and  police absolutely must control an area for the safety of those innocent people and other bystanders. The middle of a riot is the wrong place to start arguing with cops about how you have a right to stand on your front lawn and watch idiots looting across the street. Why would anyone be standing outside watching that shiat go down if they were "innocent" and minding their own business in the first place?

It's behavior and thinking like yours that contributes not to easing of tensions, but to declaration of martial law and heightening of police overreach and brutality. During a riot is the exact wrong time to be standing on one's civil rights. Afterwards yes, but not when the bullets and tear gas is flying.

Yet it is a little amazing to think that if the police viewed community trust as an essential asset of any minimally functioning department of enforcement, you wouldn't have had to write all that, doncha think?

What would really be something is if they could get the name of the officer who shot the kid.  Maybe some list of people who are currently on administrative leave.

It won't happen but it's interesting to think about the shiat that would kick up.

again, if the police had any community trust, they would even have senior members of the community speaking directly on the air and streets in a meanginful way, directing people to avoid those areas. Then you wouldn't have to wonder at any of this. You would know right and wrong by watching them help each other, and learning from the example.

Well, the kid was black, so he probably deserved it, and the looters were black, so they definitely shouldn't have stuff, and that's basically how that works.
