Harris-Perry: Ferguson Arson, Looting ‘Not Necessarily Violence’

Harris-Perry: Ferguson Arson, Looting ‘Not Necessarily Violence’

On her Saturday broadcast, MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry argued that although she did not condone the arson and looting following the St. Louis grand jury decision not to indict Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson for the fatal shooting of Michael Brown on any count, those acts were “not necessarily violence” because they were acts against property and not against people or a person.

“Let me also just point out, arson and looting, while illegal and not things that I support and I think also counterproductive in many ways, are also not necessarily violence in that they are they are violence against property, and that does actually carry a legal difference, right?” she said. “I mean, violence against property ought to be different than violence against bodies.”
