3. If we want to hold the police accountable

for their violent and criminal behavior, we have to hold the rest of us to the same standard.

There is no excuse for rioting and looting when protesting the police bad behavior. Yes, the police were responsible for the death of an innocent young man and they probably brutalized a lot of other people. However, to justify the crimes the rioters committed against innocent people and the destruction and theft of their property is as ridiculous as the claims that the police were just doing their job when they killed Mike Brown.
