Don Surber had some unsolicited advice for business owners in Ferguson, Missouri, this week: “Do not bother rebuilding.”
Your customers do not want you. They tore up your stores — twice. And after one of them robbed a store. These are not protests. They are pogroms aimed at the middle class. Take the insurance money and run.
Police officers, too, should leave. Why risk a criminal trial or worse for doing your job?
Homeowners, too. Black, white, Asian, Hispanic — it does not matter. You are middle class. They do not want you. Leave.
Via Gateway Pundit, at least one shop owner has decided to do just that. Mumtaz Lalani told Sean Hannity Tuesday night that he will not be rebuilding his store after being looted three times in three months.
Sean Hannity shared new video of the dozens of looters, young black men, pouring into the Dellwood Market after the grand jury released its decision last week.
Mr. Lalani said that it cost him between $50,000 and $100,000 to rebuild and restock after each time the store was looted.
Lalani said he was leaving Ferguson because he no longer feels safe in his own neighborhood.
He blasted Governor Jay Nixon for failing to deploy the National Guard on the night of the grand jury decision. Race-baiters Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson didn’t escape his wrath, either.
“This time the governor promised that there would be National Guard and that we would be taken care of and secure. I was very much disappointed. All they had to do was put one National Guard Humvee parked in front of each store. There were 20 to 30 stores. They could have prevented these things… They did everything wrong from beginning to the end…
…The thing is that Martin Luther King if he was alive he wouldn’t have appreciated the way those leaders have handled the case. Like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson,they’ve been to St. Louis a couple of times. They could have talked to those demonstrators to do a peaceful demonstration. Not just destroy the neighborhood.”
