If one party is bent on murder, than one could easily argue that "minimizing violence" is to let yourself be killed.

"Minimizing violence" is not always the most desirable outcome. Particularly in a case like this where those committing the current violence have no interest in peace, and instead will just be waiting for the next opportunity to commit violence.

It's kind of a question of long term peace versus short term peace. Or, looked at differently, "Dane geld". We're buying temporary peace at the price that we allow animals to loot, pillage, burn, steal, and assault against civilization itself. Better to "have it out" now, because it'll only be worse next time.

So you guys think it's time to start an extermination process? Count me out of the Fourth Reich.

I would *happily* exterminate anyone that attempted to beat me, steal my things, or burn down my home. Would you not?

I find your godwinization to be quite laughable.

Well, it ain't like you were contributing anything of value before.

So, wait a minute, are you saying that you have a problem with defending yourself, your loved ones, and your property?

He's a troll or a coward. Possibly both.

Shooting violent criminals to keep them from burning down your city is genocide?

You're addressing this question to the wrong people. From their actions (and "By their fruits you shall know them"), the rioters clearly do believe this. So try again; this is another failed attempt to blame anyone other than the real perpetrator(s).
