I posted this just to tell you where I live, not to start a discussion on the rights and wrongs, leave that to Facebook.
I go to Ferguson often, one of the dart leagues I am in is centered around Ferguson. It is an old suburb of St. Louis, meaning it has square streets, large older homes. Three of the bars I go to are in the area. One of the fires was about 100 yards from one bar, another was near one of the car fires. Most of the building fires were not in Ferguson, but in a neighboring community, Dellwood.
If you watched any of this on TV, remember that 30-40% of the people there were from the media. Everyone needs to just go home.
