  • Ferguson real estate market slow in wake of riots

    Monday | via Housing Wire 

    With the grand jury deciding not to indict Police Officer Darren Wilson in the now justified shooting of a suspect who attacked him, many are concerned the protests could turn ugly over the coming days.

The recruiting and fundraising opportunities for the cop-hating progressive movement are virtually unlimited.

    1 hr ago | via Salt Lake Tribune
