    A group of four black Ferguson residents reportedly armed themselves and descended upon a white-owned business following a grand jury’s decision not to indict police officer Darren Wilson in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown. But unlike many of the Ferguson demonstrators, the armed men were there to protect the business, not destroy it in protest.

    The men told the Las Vegas Review Journal that they feel indebted to the white store owner, Doug Merello, who has given them employment over the years.

    “We would have been burned to the ground many times over if it weren’t for them,” Morello said following the Ferguson riots. The business is a Conoco gas station and convenience store first bought by Morello’s father in 1984.

    Talked to a guy yesterday from St. Louis who said that he lived just a couple of miles from Ferguson. He said that he is moving as soon as possible because he does not want to live near all that crazy stuff. Don't you agree that houses in Ferguson have lost most of their value for good?

    Impeach Nixon!
