As per usual, CNN is up to their old tricks, selectively editing their video, claiming the sister was calling for peace, when in fact, she was calling for the rioting to be moved to the suburbs:http://goo.gl/ajPeC7
The victim's sister is really concerned about all the weaves that are being burned, because her community needs it:https://goo.gl/ivFoTzhttp://goo.gl/8a4U5D
So, who again, was against harsh measures against these morons?
I have two solutions.
One, is using extreme prejudice. Fully armoured police, beating the stuffing out of anyone stupid enough to riot, loot and generally try to take advantage of the protests. You want to peacefully protest, please continue. Step out of line? It's time to get medieval on your asses. You start to use guns to shoot back? The kid's gloves come off and it's bodybag time.
The second, is the Escape from New York, aka the Snake Plisken Solution. Build a wall around the affected area. Let them be responsible for themselves. No welfare. No food and other products moved in. You want out? Go to school and get a degree. Learn a trade, electrician, plumber or something. Don't commit a crime. You'll get a pass to come to an accredited school, outside the neighbourhood, to continue your education. Once you have that and have found a job and held it for a year, you are allowed to move out of the walled area into the rest of the city. We'll look in, in about a century, to see what the situation is.
