Chance of riots: Moderate!

So the latest over-a-year-old-controversy-but-now-we've-got-video-and-let's-face-it-some-people-are-too-stupid-to-do-anything-without-pictures-to-make-it-clear-to-them protest moment has been spurred on by the indictment of a cop in Chicago for first degree murder. I've referenced it a couple of stories down.

Now that video has been released of the shooting, the looters, er, excuse me, I mean protesters-for-justice are out and about again.

There were sporadic protests in Chicago yesterday. One featured this classic moment captured by an AP photographer:

Ah, reasoned, considered debate, the hallmark of Anglo-Saxon culture! Note that these are protests well after the fact, and AFTER the cop has been indicted (properly, in my opinion) for first degree murder.

But here's the more interesting bit: the protesters in Chicago are calling for a "shut down" of the famous Michigan Avenue shopping district on Black Friday. Has there ever been a clearer call for a flash mob to come loot and pillage? Hell, Attila the Hun would admire the chutzpah. 

And in NYC, a mob invaded Macy's last night (the night before Thanksgiving) in support of protesters in Minneapolis. Breitbart adds this following bit of helpfulness: 
Black liberation activists, revolutionary communists, and the Nation of Islam plan to target stores for demonstration nationwide on Black Friday.
Oh yeah, between ISIS, the Nation of Islam, black anarchists, black communists, and the white supporters of each, plus the propensity of blacks to riot for free shit anyway, tomorrow is likely to be about as much fun as the days after MLKjr was shot. I'll be staying home.
