A List of Businesses Looted and Damaged During the Ferguson Riots

businesses-looted-in-ferguson-missouri

You now know that the grand jury has chosen not to indict officer Darren Wilson in the shooting of Michael Brown. No matter where you stand on the issue, you should agree that looting and setting fire to local businesses is idiotic and shameful.

Here are a list of businesses known at this time that have suffered loss due to the riots in Ferguson, MO.

If you feel compelled to help them, here are the addresses. Send a check, spend money with them when they reopen, and if they are a national or regional chain, go shop with them in your own city.

Yes, these businesses may have insurance, but don’t think they aren’t paying the price. Behind the flames and broken glass is a business owner or general manager left to pick up the pieces.

The situation is still very fluid right now, so my information may be incorrect or incomplete. Please contact me with updates, photos, addresses or other additions. The St. Louis Regional Business Council has also launched a fund to support proprietors who have been affected by the riots.

Benjaman Kyle is the pseudonym adopted by a man who has dissociative amnesia. He was discovered unconscious on August 31, 2004, in Richmond Hill, Georgia, and is believed to be about 64 years old

Benjamin Kyle was found naked, unresponsive and covered with ant bites behind a Burger King dumpster in Georgia eight years ago still has no idea who he is.

The man, who is believed to have dissociative amnesia, woke up in hospital with no memory of his name, identity or how he ended up naked at Burger King. He gave himself the name Benjamin Kyle using the initials of Burger King.

Investigators have been unable to find any family or any way for him to identify himself. Kyle is the only American citizen officially listed as missing despite his whereabouts being known.

The news, the online community, and even TV shows have aired his story hoping someone who knows him will step forward and solve the mystery.

Was he a spy or part of some government experiment? Theories abound.

Books about mysterious disappearances.
