I'm glad things didn't get really bad. It could have been much worse.
I heard on the radio there were 50 to 100 arrests. Some stores looted. A lot of places in downtown were boarded up. Funny that the news this morning mentioned that " . . . windows broken last night were boarded up this morning . . . " and that sort of thing. I saw plenty of pics from yesterday showing buildings boarded up then to prevent looting.
Here are some pics of buildings boarded up Thursday before the verdict was read.
I didn't take the pics. They were posted by 44regular on arfcom and I shamelessly borrowed them.
Here are some links.
There is so much wrong in this story that I don't know where to begin.
Remember that this could happen near you. Even if you live outside the big city you probably go into town once in a while, right? Best pay attention to the news and make sure you avoid this kind of situation.
