… how does ripping up your town make it better?

Irrespective of what any person may think about the Ferguson, Missouri grand jury decision, what positive outcome can be expected from ripping up your own community and setting it ablaze?

Not that I agree, but I can understand something like “march on city hall.”  I can see why an angry mob might have gone after, say, a police station or a court house.  I don’t understand how figuratively shitting in your own corn flakes improves your situation.

I guess that by their very nature, mobs aren’t rational, but these riots show them to be stupid as well.  The same thing happened on a larger scale in Los Angeles after the Rodney King incident, and again, the people who were hurt by the rioting were the very same people complaining about being hurt by The System ™.
