    I am sorry I don't follow the logic.  You are telling me that some people in Ferguson breached the peace because the police brought out armored vehicles or dogs.   That is all they have to do to "foment a riot" and that they purposefully did so because they knew or believed that the people of Ferguson lacked the restraint to not "riot" if they were so provoked.  I am sorry I must have missed that part of the story because I thought it was because they thought someone was wrongfully killed?  

    It is interesting that many African American leaders from Al Sharpton, to Joe Madison (radio commentator) to the NAACP are today lamenting the destruction of property as they should.  

    What I expect from people is that they not steal and destroy property of people in their own neighborhood because they believe that a wrong has been committed against one of their neighbors.   What does stealing and destroying property have to do with the death of this young man?  If you think that destroying property is helps the cause, you are mistaken.
