The last two nights I have stayed up and watched so called “riots” develop in #Ferguson. These are not riots these are a group of rowdy young men who are the neighborhood trouble makers. I have listened to Rachael Maddow impatiently wait for Chris Hayes of #MSNBC to report that something was happening. Yes the police were dressed in riot gear and yes a water bottle was thrown, it is all captured on video, but to call these punks rioters is to elevate their status. I remember the real riots, the ones in NYC, LA, and Chicago where thousands participated.
