I you think arson only applies to homes try burning down your business and see if the cops give you a bye. My point is just like in the arab spring all over the middle east, the protesters could do no wrong. No matter how much of the city burns if the police or military shot protesters they were villains in the press.
I don’t see how you think Reggie Denny fits into the discussion. Other than he should have had a gun and lots of ammo. Was thete a big population of low income white folks in LA with bad attitudes?
