And Id venture to guess that was a small scale test to see what the reaction would be.

Imagine the bullPosted Image when it happens in a large city.

Atlanta is a pretty big city. Clayton county is where Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is located, and is the 6th largest county in the state.

Anyway, they didn't have their benefits canceled or taken away; it was just some computer glitch or employee stupidity that screwed everything up temporarily.

20 minutes ago there were 2 cars on fire in that lot; now it's spread to a dozen burning and another few with broken windows and windshields.

A dozen businesses burned to the ground so far, and they say they've already learned most will not return.

I don't think a business in Ferguson is worth much after tonight anyways. I feel bad for the civilized people that live there.

Yep, it's like I was saying earlier, the civilized people will be fleeing for greener pastures, so those folks are just making their own community even less desirable than it already was... these idiots are destroying their own surroundings, and no businesses are going to want to risk existing there.

These people are going to have fewer local stores in walking distance, and less competition as some stores won't rebuild... which means the stores that DO stay will be able to charge whatever they want and those folks stuck in that area will be forced to pay the inflated prices, because there are fewer options.

They're shooting themselves in the foot (wallet) on numerous different levels; and 6 months from now they'll be blaming their station in life on absolutely everything and everyone but themselves.

They knew this was coming, businesses had insurance.

Some do and some don't; we've already heard from some folks that did not.

Who cares about insurance anyway? Takes forever for them to get you your check; you're going to get far less than what your property was worth; and you still have all the cleanup and months of hard work restocking your business with items for sale.

Burning the cars at a car dealership

Yep, seeing that right now. 2 fires set in separate cars, and now the fire is spreading to the cars parked beside them. Ridiculous.

And the owner of the lot can't even respond or try to save his inventory for fear of getting shot himself if he shows up... has to sting to see your business literally going up in flames live on TV, and be totally helpless to do anything about it.
