Ferguson and Martin Luther King

Remember when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. advocated looting and violence in response to injustice?

Remember when he spoke so eloquently about that sort of lawless behavior being a legitimate response and productive course of action?

Of course not. It didn't happen.

Using the death of Michael Brown as an excuse to commit crimes is insane.

There needs to be an investigation into his death. The process needs to play out.

Meanwhile, protesters in New York and 100 other cities across the country are expressing their outrage over the shooting.

Don't these people care about the bloodshed in Chicago or Milwaukee or "fill in the blank"?

Don't they care about Sierra Guyton?

This innocent little girl was killed by thug Sylvester Lewis.

There wasn't a protest in New York for Sierra.

Obama didn't issue a statement about her death.

This is all so messed up.
