    We quite regularly pray for our nation, but, yeah, this will be a major concern.

    There were dozens of people standing around filming this travesty, yet nobody called 911. One woman in the crowd even said she was a first responder, surely she should have called for an ambulance?

    A) It's like you're assuming that these people aren't smart enough to be appealed to
    2) They're encouraging some who might not otherwise cross the line.


    This Is Easy: Donít Excuse, Defend, or Encourage Rioters


    Also - no-one has been oppressed for 400 years - unless they're pretty much immortal.

    Every single Christian must pray for those riots to stop.

    As long as the peaceful protesters rights are protected, I will support the police in reigning in those committing acts of violence. I will not at all be okay with the presence of violent rioters being used as an excuse to shut down a moral protest.

    Got through the night with no deaths or reported injuries. Several stores were looted. About eight arrests with more pending.

    Police say they are going to release where the arrested people came from. I will be interested to see how many are local versus out of town.

    With the Internet and Social media, it's certainly possible.
