There is something fundamentally evil about violence. You shouldn't be obligated to seek redress for your grievances by looting a CVS, abd then burning it down. You shouldn't handcuff a suspect, and put him in a police van without a seatbelt (when he's already asking for help), subject him to a 'rough ride', then deny him medical care until it's too late. How is rioting and looting going to make the world a better place? How is extrajudicially executing a suspect already in custody going to make me feel safer? I already know that I'm not going to be calling 911 if I'm the victim of, or a witness to a crime. My respect and my trust are commodities no police force has yet to earn. But how is mindlessly rioting going to change it? How is looting and damaging other people's property (most, if not, all of whom had nothing to do with the original case) going to get police to clean up there act?
The wheels of justice move slowly, but they do move. Rioting won't bring back the dead, nor will it bring about police reform. Violence in all forms is evil, and I condemn both sides.
Violence. Is. Evil. Period.
