showing the same 2 fires (CVS, Senior Center)

Because they are the biggest and need to fit into a 30 second spot.

and the same cars (Police Cruiser/Van fire, Police cruiser swarmed, black car on fire)

See above

According to you the government lies, the news agencies don't check but you can get an accurate picture from a few posts on the internet. That is not likely.

the remedy is not so easily arranged.

There is no remedy to death but that does not justify looting and arson of private property.

You seem to hold property in a markedly higher esteem than human life.

I most certainly do not. I also don't see how burning and looting private property has anything to do with how the police treat minorities. Two wrongs do not make a right.

Show me where the founding fathers burned down private owned buildings and stole from private citizens not directly related to government action? There may be damage during the war but not riots.

PS. The Boston Tea Party does not count as it was a direct protest against the Tea Act in 1773.

Don't you think that the new agencies fact checked? I think it is strange that you do all of this "research" but don't cite any references. How did you do your research? Surfing the web? Don't you think that only interesting pictures would be posted? The internet is not a complete history. It only has what people post.

Take a look at these videos. Those two groups make up much more than a few dozen.

Yet we're told that its necessary to equip police like they're fighting a war, suspend civil liberties and arrest hundreds/thousands all because of the massive amounts of footage of the same 2-5 burning cars and 5-15 damaged businesses probably caused by no more than a few dozen miscreants.

You might want to get your figures correct;

Baltimore Police said 235 arrests were made overnight -- 201 adults and 34 juveniles. Twenty officers were injured in Monday night's violence.
The mayor's office said the city's fire department dealt with fires in 144 vehicles and 15 buildings. Baltimore police said one person is in critical condition after one of those fires.

That is just fires. Then there is the looting that did not generate fires.

So you have greatly exaggerated arrests and greatly under reported vehicle fires.

Do you see no difference between burning and looting and holing up in a compound?

police regularly complain, well, they're just uppity thugs and vandals.

No they are not. Have all the organizes peaceful protests you want and I will not call you thugs and vandals. When they cross the line to include destruction of property and theft then they become thugs and vandals. There is a line between what is lawful protest and what is not. Burning buildings and vehicles and looting from stores is not lawful protest.

Sorry but when you cross that line you lose support for your cause. If you act like animals be prepared to be treated as such.

using it against American citizens who are engaged in the Constitutionally protected activity of criticizing their government.

Sorry but assault, vandalism, arson, destruction of public property, looting, etc are not Constitutionally protected activities no matter what the reason. The minute a protester starts doing any of those things they are no longer protesters and are now thugs and vandals. Sorry but the "we are so mad we can't control ourselves" is just a cop out.

I didn't say "open" I said "public". Her are some possible projects; IRS tax system, Stock Exchange system, Telephone switching network, etc.

I am basically calling into question the poster's assertion that he has worked on systems that have taken a decade to implement. Maybe a few years to implement and many more years to add features and debug but probably not a decade before being deployed. There are very few systems as big as the US air traffic control system And very few of those have been recently replaced.

The decision doesn't have to be logical; it was unanimous.
