Is Looting a Legitimate Form of Social Protest?

Yes, according to a lecturer at Yale. Matthew Vadum provides the details in this article.

My guess is that only students who are inclined to agree with that would waste their time on the class, but if there are any dissenters, how will they be treated if they ask obvious questions such as, “What is just about stealing from and/or destroying the property of those who happen to own businesses in towns like Ferguson?” Or, “How has past looting done anything to make black lives safer today?”
