Raise sales tax and keep raising sales tax when you let riots happen to destroy and then keep raising sales tax to cover the cost of a bunch of black thugs living in our country? No Thanks.

Nothing new under the sun, sales tax is regressive. More overtime paid for on the backs of those least capable to pay.

The thugs come in all colors. They're called cops. It's an equal opportunity job. It's not their color. Scum comes in every color of the rainbow. You just proved that.
