Reader: I've Never Heard of Violence Bringing Peace
Protesters on Colfax Monday night.
For two nights now, demonstrators have gathered in Denver to protest the decision of a grand jury in Ferguson, Missouri, not to indict police officer Darren Wilson in connection with the death of Michael Brown. Last night's gathering was much bigger than Monday's, and four of the protesters were arrested. Another gathering is planned for tonight.

And in the meantime, opinions in Denver are just as divided as they are across the country.
My heart goes out to the hard working business owners and private citizens who won't have a Thanksgiving or Christmas thanks to opportunist thugs who use this tragedy on both sides for their financial gain. Do something less violent for your community. Make a difference.
This is none of Denver's business and if people are looking to get involved in something then they should go out and feed the homeless or something.
And then there's this from Brittany:
I've never heard of violence bringing peace.
