So Byron Scott doesn't condemn the rioters but says that "their way (of) burning buildings, vandalizing, fighting, shooting (is) how you get the frustrations out."
Byron, come off your lofty perch and realize that one's frustration is no excuse for taking away someone else's livelihood. This is your city. Many of those small business people who have lost the means of their livelihood may not now be able to pay the big bucks to watch you earn yours.
If you think this kind of conduct is OK then why don't you adopt one or two of those businesses, help them clean up the mess and make a personal loan at 4% for 30 years like the SBA does?
