QuickTrip Mart Will Not Re-Build in Ferguson


Well, the fools who destroyed their own neighborhood during riots in Ferguson, Missouri after a teenager was killed by a police officer there have made their own neighborhood into a lesser place. The one convenience store and gas station they had in their area, the one burned down, will not be rebuilt.

The QuickTrip was burned to the ground by rioters two weeks ago.*

It was the only convenience store in the area. But now, Gateway Pundit reports that the company says it will not bother to rebuild the store.

The company sent gasoline tankers to the site to pump out all the gas in the underground holding tanks and have said it will tear the store down leaving an empty lot.

They say the store was barely breaking even, anyway. Probably due to the amount of theft.

So, what we see now is that these people who complain that their neighborhood isn’t livable have now made their own neighborhood even less livable because of their rioting. Nice move, folks.

* (Editor’s note:  The original story said Mike Brown robbed this store. Actually, he robbed a different store, not the QuickTrip.)
