    Newspaper article from 1966 riots: “The most vivid impression to come out of the riots were the scurrilous attempts by the extreme left wing segments of our county to capitalize on the situation by using the tactics of obscuring the critical and most vital issue that of lawless hoodlumism while trying to strip the cloak of respectability from the black citizen, thus encouraging him to become a tool in their political machinery.” How about the responsible MSM taking a note and try to be responsible, and teach yr. extreme left wing governor THIS responsibilty to the black community.

    So how is looting and rioting considered a protest ? They should be prosecuted as the criminals they are.
