This morning I decided to watch Fox and Friends, and they did not disappoint. They were interviewing some no name ex-DC cop. He was giving his take on the looting in St. Louis. I was actually waiting to see how could they possibly make a connection between the looting and the president, and the cop did it. He said that most of the people doing the looting and the rioting probably voted for the president and since there is big unemployment in the community they are frustrated, and that is in fact the president’s problem. Now part of his statement is true. The president did receive the majority of the black vote, but frustration does not turn you into a criminal. Frustation might breed apathy and maybe contempt, but it does not make good people commit criminal acts. The reality is the riots are not the fault of the White House. Everything is not President Obama’s fault, but for some folks everything is a reason to attack him, but if something good happens it happened in spite of him.
Is the president responsible for the looting in St. Louis?
