But given what happened there, you have to understand the literal outrage that some of these people are feeling. The rioters… I’ve got a story by Victoria Taft at PJ Media: “Rioters Are So Angry About Police Killing That They… Stole Baby Clothes and Air Fryers from Nearby Target.” See, on the other side of the glass here there is raucous laughter.
