We have been told here the past two summers that the unrest would start during the heat of the summer. It obviously didn't happen last summer.


Well, the heat is here, definately in the NE. No riots yet. Will we have to wait until Aug?

Oakland is suppose to have riots just as soon as the Mehserle case wraps up.

I'd riot but it's too hot. Let's wait til it cools down a bit. For now, I'm staying in the A/C.

So, what happens if you plan a riot and no one shows up to play?

Or, if two groups plan a riot on the same day at the same place? Who gets to go first?

And, what happens if you have a riot and the police, who are supposed to be the opposing side, don't show up?

I don't think they will riot. I think they will just shrug their shoulders and build cardboard and corrugated iron shanty towns, like they do in every other 3rd world country, and it's business as usual.

There might be a few little riots here and there, but no place that I ever go. I'm not worried at all to be honest.

The welfare class that typically riots in this country are not greatly effected by economic downturns. So unless there is some catalyst other than hot weather I don't see any riots in the near future.
Now if the welfare checks stop coming or the EBT cards don't get reloaded I'm going to GTFOOD ASAFP.

Good luck finding any info. There was a slight blurb about it on the Roanoke Times website. I have it on good authority that it was more than what the news people made it out to be.

Roanoke police respond to disturbance as hundreds seek housing help

Roanoke Police responded Tuesday morning following a disturbance on Melrose Avenue
Hundreds of people lined up to apply for rental assistance.
Police were called to a Roanoke bingo hall, where hundred of people lined up Tuesday morning to apply for housing assistance.

The disturbance happened in the parking lot at the Voice of the Blue Ridge building on Melrose Avenue. Police responded and quickly restored order.

By mid-morning, more than 900 people had applied for a voucher program that provides rental assistance to low-income families.

This was the first time since 2007 that the Roanoke Redevelopment and Housing Authority has taken applications for the Section 8 Waiting list. The event continues until 7 oclock today, and again tomorrow.

––––––––––––––––

So why were so many people were waiting in line for hours? Hundreds came to apply for a voucher program that will help them afford better housing.

The crowd included families with young children, people with disabilities - even the homeless, all trying to find a better place to live.

Steven Hamilton and Gwen Sinkler and Gwen's grandchildren Tanique and Tayshaun joined several hundred others with similar dreams. "We looked at it and sure we wanted to go back home," Hamilton said, "but you know the bottom line is we won't have no home if we don't come here and get some help."

The Housing Choice Voucher program provides rental assistance for low income families.

The people who filled out forms and stood in line for hours will be placed on a waiting list in the order they applied.

Earl Saunders works for the Roanoke Redevelopment and Housing Authority. "You know it's a stepping stone for them where basically they can actually uplift themselves, get in the program, work and eventually go off the program and somebody else can take their slot," Saunders said.

Daniel Lowry moved to Roanoke two months ago to be near his daughter. He' s been living at the Salvation Army.

"Every day is getting better," Lowry told News7. "God has blessed me and with this situation here i hope i can get some permanent housing."

The housing authority will be accepting applications again on Wednesday, from 9am until 7pm.

Well they don't call them "riots" they call them civil disturbances or less. I guess you missed the footage from cams when they were carrying on in the streets of obamas district. I guess you missed the crowd that attacked the white family in ohio. I guess you missed the stats on crime in border towns.

I guess you missed a lot because the media is selective in what they report. How bad will it have to be before they really call them riots is anyones guess. But it's going to be either the white man or the republians fault, maybe bushes fault.


They told the black panther that brandished the club at the polling site not to do that till 2012 so maybe it will happen then, that's when he can start threatening with clubs again.
