Restaurants business virtually shut down by protest

http://kplr11.com/2014/08/19/restaurants-business-virtually-shut-down-by-protest/

FERGUSON, MO (KTVI) Its been a long 11 days for everyone in Ferguson, its putting a burden on businesses like the owners of Swiish Bar and Grill. Corey and Chantelle Nickson-Clark opened the doors to swiish two months ago and things were good. However, the Ferguson riots changed everything. The bar wasnt looted but the owners discovered the financial blow is the same. The tensions in the area caused law enforcement to set up shop in the parking lot of the Buzz Westfall Center and that shut business down. Now the couples entire life savings is on the line.

We know and understand the damage that has been done. As the owners of swiish and as parents our heart goes out to the family of Michael Brown. Chantelle said.

Its an unfortunate situation and I feel someone should do something to compensate the businesses that are affected. Its not right its not fair. Corey said

Since rioting started swiish has cancelled 15 events and issued refunds. Owners also say they asked state and local officials for help with no success. They hope to get their 10 employees who are from the Ferguson area back to work as soon as possible.

1. Asking the cops to be responsible?

 

Are these people kidding? The cops can do what ever they want, take over any property they want and use it any way they want.

And you know why? Crime. Water bottles thrown at them. The poor cops are just protecting us, and if it means our rights are thrown out the window, well, that's just awful.
