An unarmed black man Michael Brown was killed by the police in a St. Louis suburb. This is a tragedy and it is being investigated, but his death does not give license to lawlessness. Breaking into stores and stealing is not an act of protest it is a crime. A few minutes ago I saw a woman appearing on CNN talking about the frustration of the community, but that is not an excuse for looting the stores that actually serve the community. We do a disservice to the victim when we attempt to justify criminal behavior.
No Excuse for Looting in St. Louis…None
