Al Sharpton get’s it wrong in Ferguson. The men in the riot area have no jobs so they have the time to join the riots but Sharpton, a clever community agitator failed once again to identify the problem so he was unable to solve it.
Rioters want money. People with jobs get money for doing the jobs, ergo, jobs prevent riots. Government can give them money but a job gives them more money than government with the additional advantage that government doesn’t have to take the money from workers to give it to the rioters.
Imagine Ferguson with a job surplus. Rioters could pick the highest paying job before going out to riot so they’d do the smart thing, skip the late night riot and get a good nights sleep so they could do even better work, get promoted and get even more money. Yessir, jobs beat rioting as a career move every time.
