    Those that have destroyed property and vandalized should be charged with it and them pay the cost of repair and replacement however may years it takes them to do that. Taxpayers should not have to eat the cost. It is understandable there are racial tensions and frustrations but they are not an excuse to destroy or harrass other people that had nothing to do with the shooting. I feel so sorry for his family in their loss especially as they are facing their 1st holidays without him. But, I wish all these protesters and those destroying everything would also face the reality that he had committed a crime in ripping off a business and charged and assaulted a police officer. If a white, Asian, Hispanic, Indian, middle eastern teen had done the same things they too could have gotten themselves shot and killed. He made some poor choices that cost him his life. The black community must also face that reality and truth as well.

    It's interesting that people who didn't witness the incident or were not part of the grand jury seem to think they know so much about it that they feel justified in rioting and closing down malls, etc. There should be severe penalties for those who participate in these violent and disrupting behaviors.

    To the "professional" protestors and agitators who apparently have NO use for facts; get over it already! Officer Wilson was shown to have acted appropriately by shooting thug Michael Brown. The grand jury found nothing that would merit this incident going to trial.

    The protestors closing these stores and I-5 should arrested! These liberal malcontents, who apparently have NO jobs, are now interfering with private citizens personal lives! This needs to stop ASAP!

    It is sad we live in a day when facts and truth DO NOT matter!
