Violence is basically senseless
By now, most of us are aware of the recent days of violence in Ferguson, Missouri. The violence was sparked by the shooting of an unarmed black man by police, but it would seem that there may have been more to the story than just a shooting. And I wouldn’t be fair if I didn’t add that a lot of the Ferguson violence seems to have been caused by out-of-towners—people who are drawn to controversy and feel it’s no skin off their noses if they contribute to the unrest just to make a statement.
