It takes an exra special kind of idiot to make neo-nazism look good by comparison

Drudge points to sketchy details on yesterday's four-hour race riot in Toledo, Ohio. It's obvious by the tone of the writing that the author (and the city Mayor that he quotes) didn't approve. Which is as it should be.

When the rioting began, [Mayor] Ford tried to negotiate with those involved, but "they weren't interested in that." He said people in the crowd swore at him and wanted to know why he was protecting the Nazis.

They were mostly "gang members who had real or imagined grievances and took it as an opportunity to speak in their own way," Ford said.

"I was chagrined that there were obvious mothers and children in the crowd with them," he said.

And this is the mentality that sparked it all:

Keith White, a black resident, criticized city officials for allowing the march in the first place.

"They let them come here and expect this not to happen?" said White, 29.

A spokesman for the National Socialist Movement blamed police for losing control of the situation.

All that finger pointing and not a word about comporting one's self in a personally responsible manner. If it sounds like I'm lecturing, well... I am. This is just disgusting behavior.
