This is where these people live. The looting and rioting is a welcome relief and vent for the ignorance that has taken place of their existence.
Ignorance justifies looting and burning?!? That's certainly a new take on things!
The ignorance of the rest of the high and mighty who gain from the of their plight!. You don't understand when you take away part of the Virtuous Cycle of the economy to boost your greed at the cost of others you form a sub culture that lives on the fringe. Well the fringe is now rearing its head for you to notice. I am sorry you never take any of the social or economic ills with any responsibility.
Stop making excuses for people's bad behavior.
I am not making any excuses I am merely rooting out the ignorance that perpetuates the problems. Thanks for participating.
"... a welcome relief and a vent" – Oh, puleeze!
People who committed criminal acts during the riots will be arrested and prosecuted and the juries will find no excuses for their behavior unless it is proven that they are criminally insane, in which case they will be confined to mental institutions and be kept far away from society. You can look at statistics and conclude that police are targeting black people when it can really mean that more black people in a given area commit crimes.
Criminals have no justifiable excuses just like there is no excuse for you to continually be posting photos that are under copyright of their owners on this forum. That is also against the law and can hurt everyone on this site if the AP or Dreamstime file a lawsuit.
The boarded-up buildings are left-over results from 1968, the last time criminals went on a rioting rampage and destroyed their own neighborhood.
You really don't know what you are talking about. Your propensity to deflect with statements like left over affects of riots past is so wrong. Come to Baltimore and work and relate to these people before you pass judgment on them. It might teach you something.
I haven't seen anyone try to justify the looting. I've seen many try to explain it. There is a difference. Either you don't understand the difference or you are intentionally ignoring the difference.
I don't think that there is anything that can justify the looting. This is sad state of affair we observe in humanity, and the idea needs to be challenged on all fronts, all angles. This hurts the people who are acting out, and others around them. It drives out those that wouldn't act in such manner, and that can afford to leave for better and safer lives. Its really self sabotaging activity.
One of the stranger elements to me, is that it appears some people just have this desire to fight and "rage" over something, anything. It seems to matter not how irrational, illogical or unreasonable or immoral, or ego and emotion driven it appears to be. Careful thinking seems to be put on the back burner. I hope that people everywhere will encourage better thinking through ideas and actions. Its one thing that can battle this problem. Making a bad problem worse by hurting more people makes no sense to me. Isn't life hard enough, that we don't want to bring on more hardships on ourselves and others? There are better ways to address the issues and raise awareness. Lets all promote more good and critical thinking for all involved.
Maybe someone put them up to it?
It just takes a couple pre-lit matches to ignite a fire...
especially if the fire is smoldering due to the lighter fluid of bad media influence.

You work hard to build a fortune that you can pass on to your kids, or otherwise distribute however you desire on your passing. It is your money. Shouldn't you be able to do whatever you want with it, within our legal boundaries of course?What business does the government have taxing your estate...

Maybe its my OCD but when I look at a hub, or website that doesn't justify the text so that the columns are even on both sides (think columns in a newspaper or magazine) it looks messy and unprofessional.If we were allowed to Justify the text in each text box or if the HubPages had a default...

I think it shows incredible arrogance when taxing and rule-making authorities treat e-gigarettes the same as tobacco products.There is no tobacco to tax. There are no harmful 2nd-hand dangers to non-smokers.How the hell can they justify this, and why the hell are they getting away with it?GA

Hey ubaidh86!I've made a note to bring up this suggestion in our next community meeting, though I know in the past we have decided against adding too many formatting options just to keep things simple (this is also why we have limited image formatting options, image background color options, etc.),...
