The disgraceful looting and uncivilized behavior in Ferguson has as much to do with the death of Michael Brown as the antisemitic protests and attacks across Europe have to do with what's been happening in Israel. These are just opportunists showing their true colors.
What Obama should have said yesterday was an unequivocal "Stop looting! Stop rioting! Period!" The fact that they didn't stop shows how much respect they have for him. Also, the TV networks should stop carrying the Ferguson looting live, as it just glorifies thuggish, disgraceful behavior. I doubt prospective employers are going to hire any of those criminals any time soon.
