Protesters take pictures in front of the burning Juanita’s Fashion R Boutique in St. Louis, Mo. early today. Protesters set fire to buildings and cars and looted businesses in the area where Michael Brown was fatally shot after a grand jury declined to indict white police Officer Darren Wilson in Brown’s death. (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)
Juanita’s Fashion R Boutique is a black-owned Ferguson business.
Last night Juanita’s was burned to the ground.
Rioters stood around and laughed.

From a reader: Heartbreaking!!! People laughing and celebrating the destruction of this woman’s business. I’m sure she had her heart and soul in this place. This isn’t a protest, I didn’t hear any anger… This is plain and simple destructive ignorance. Did they even know or care it was black owned??? Or is the goal just to destroy your community in some twisted way of thinking it will make things better.
