@sethphotopoulos: The reporters are trying to become the story and making the situation markedly worse. Confusing ear plugs for rubber bullets and false reports of dead bodies on the street isn't exactly doing the job of "journalism" proud. It's little more than a violent TV show for them now. That reporters are making the problem worse isn't some random observation. Several reporters have said the same.
@turambar: We know that Zimmerman was defending himself. This is different. Brown was a useless thug likely (I say likely because we only have the cop's word and, God knows, the police wouldn't possibly file a report to exonerate themselves for no reason) attacking a cop. The cops are useless thugs antagonizing the citizens with weapons they lack the training to use and with body armor soldiers in battle zones would kill to have. The rioters are fucking up a city they don't live in and reporters are bathing in the anarchy.
