Do not rebuild in Ferguson

From a kid who survived the Hough Riots in Cleveland nearly a half century ago, some unsolicited advice to the business owners in Ferguson, Missouri:

Do not bother rebuilding. Your customers do not want you. They tore up your stores -- twice. And after one of them robbed a store. These are not protests. They are pogroms aimed at the middle class. Take the insurance money and run. Police officers, too, should leave. Why risk a criminal trial or worse for doing your job? Homeowners, too. Black, white, Asian, Hispanic -- it does not matter. You are middle class. They do not want you. Leave.

Your Say

Yeah that cops should pull out too. Oh, you don't want us? Good luck on your own.

This is sort of self explanatory, no?
What kind of idiot would stay where they're not wanted?

Answer: The kind that receive stolen gov't money.

Why do they burn down their neighborhoods?

So we will build them new ones.
