Don’t Believe the Hype on Milwaukee: It’s Never “Just a Riot.”
Aaron Ross Coleman

Destroying property is never an answer. It does nothing for the purported cause. It hardens hearts. And it gives a criminal record to those involved and caught.

It is especially troubling when in video footage there are cries of “get the white” when the rioting was occurring.

And even if there are injustices — unlikely when the person in question apparently had a stolen firearm, fled from police, and pulled his firearm — this is not the way to correct them. It’s going to result in some press conference, some cutting of some ribbon, maybe a few new programs, and people will promptly forget about it. These things will not change unless the mentality changes.
