….exactly MY point Malgus. I am saying I would judiciously evaluate the situation for myself and choose not to exercise my personal belief of what righteous might is and when it is required.
As a business owner, I think going to locate a new place for the business is the right thing to do – post haste, and don’t view it as running away. When there are no places left to retreat to I will be at my home, and then I will have an entirely different response. I believe rightly so. Because you are right:

My stores are not my life’s work. And, I have moved each one of them several times and they have survived and thrived. The last time was a year ago for one of them for close to precisely the reason that Ferguson is in the state it i in. The demographics and area were changing and not for the good. I got out. Did I ‘run away/’ – you betcha. Hard and fast and look back with no regrets. What will be left in the area will be burned out shells and a reputation for negative joo-joo that will NOT serve any business that hopes to grow, or continue to grow and prosper for a long, long time to come.
You aren’t alienating me Malgus. I am as unshakable in my own moral compass, my place in the world, who I am and my faith, and what Ifeel compelled to do about certain situations as you – we just don’t happen to agree. And, I am much less of an in-your-face (and I smile at that so pls don’t take offense) warrior.
I think your assumptions 3 and 4 are simply that, so of course, you are entitled to your opinion dear man; though I certainly disagree.
