Gee, Why Didn't This Get More Coverage?

Black Residents Armed With Assault Rifles Stand Guard Outside White-Owned Business During Ferguson Riots
A group of black Ferguson residents armed with high-powered rifles stood outside a white-owned business in the city during recent riots, protecting it from rioters that looted and burned other businesses.
After a grand jury returned no indictment against Darren Wilson, the Ferguson police officer who shot and killed unarmed black teen Michael Brown, protesters took to the streets and the demonstrations quickly turned into rioting. Several buildings were set ablaze, but a group of heavily armed black men stood outside a Conoco gas station.

One of the residents, a 6-foot-8 man named Derrick Johnson, held an AR-15 assault rifle as he stood in a pickup truck near that store’s entrance. Three other black Ferguson residents joined Johnson in front of the store, each of them armed with pistols.

  1. The Ferguson riots are a textbook case against unilateral disarmament. Nobody was defending those shops. Jay Nixon's Benghazi?
