    Many of those who riot don't really know what the issues are. They are individuals angry that their lives are not what they want them to be and they have been trained to believe that it’s never their fault and the media coverage of rioting gives them a sense of notoriety. They’re in it for the instant gratification they get and not to try to change things.

  2. 9-22 Scoot 2pm - Is rioting a form of protesting or not?

    Some of the rioters in Charlotte are using the fashion statement of ISIS while they commit their crimes. Wrapping their heads and faces with only their eyes showing. Is it fair to say that those who riot have a militant mentality?

On one hand they say, “If you comply with police you will not be shot and killed.” On the other hand they say. “White police officers are out to kill black males.” Are these opinions across a racial divide? A socioeconomic divide? A political divide?
