Zisser Tire owner despondent over looting of store

FERGUSON, MO (KTVI) – The day after Sunday’s looting in Ferguson, between 16 and 20 businesses are clean up Monday from the aftermath of Sunday’s looting of stores. Looters broke into stores over a 5 mile radius along West Florissant that lasted till 2 am.

One of the businesses hit was Zisser Tire located in Dellwood in the 9900 block of West Florissant. Video shot by FOX2 showed looters going into the store and carrying out tire rims, tires and other items.

The owner of the store was saddened by last night’s looting and that people targeted their store after so many years of working closely with Ferguson residents.

But there is bright spot in last night’s looting; some people seen in the store were actually customers who had driven to the store to get their vehicle before they were vandalized. Monday morning most of those customers had brought their vehicle back to Zisser for service.

  • The truth

    The “New Century Foundation” studies Federal crime reports, and found significant differences in crime ratio between races, verified by the FBI’s NCVS, National Crime Victimization Survey, and The Department of Justice’s UCR, Uniform Crime Reports, FBI Communication’s Division, 304-625-4995.

    They state emphatically that the Judicial System is not biased against minorities.

    Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.

    Blacks are three times more likely to use a hand gun, and twice more likely to use a knife.

    Hispanics commit three times more violent crimes than whites, but the statistics are nebulous because sometimes they are classified as white, so it could be far higher.

    The best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percent of the population that is black and Hispanic.

    Blacks are 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against whites then vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit a robbery.

    Forty-five percent of black crime is against whites, 43 against other blacks, and 10 percent against Hispanic.

    Blacks are seven times more likely to go to prison, Hispanics three times, and the reason is clear, because from 1980 to 2003 the US incarceration rate has tripled.

    this video was like watching a bunch of animals at the zoo. Or ants crawling over food in a kitchen, how did this honor or protest a death and what did this store owner have to do with Browns death?

      why do people keep referring to what took place on sunday as the actions of “animals at the zoo”, as you state? I am fairly confident in saying that no animal at the zoo has ever smashed windows, looted the property, then burned it on the way out. this was done by humans- criminal humans,

    This only strengthens the argument that this behavior only happens within ethnic minorities, particularly blacks. They literally protested the killing of this black teen by destroying their own town. Obviously, this behavior is inconsistent with any sort of logical or critical though process.

    St. Louis at it’s best!!! No wonder it is the MOST dangerous city in America!! Keep up the good work!!! Maybe the police should close up shop in those neighborhoods and let the criminals run the show???

    If people do not agree with Mans Law then they should agree and follow Gods Law and treat everyone as Gods children regardless of Race,Ethnic, and Creed. Life is simple and good for all if you follow Gods Laws. Pray, Pray, Pray and he will hear you !!!!!!!!!!!
