I think most of the people trying to stop the rioters and looters have good intentions. But it seems from the videos that have been posted, they think black = looter. They see a gang of black youths and chase them off.
If they had taken to the streets actually during the riots, i think there would have been some serious bloodshed. Many of the rioters had machettes. I also think quite a few innocent youths would have been senselessly beaten maybe killed.
I think forming human walls is better than going on the attack.
