Former NBA player and current TNT analyst Charles Barkley had strong words for the looters in Ferguson, Missouri according to a report from the New York Daily News.
While being interviewed on sports radio in Philadelphia, Barkley said they were wrong to attack businesses and police.
From the New York Daily News:
“Those aren’t black people, those are scumbags,” the NBA Hall of Famer and TNT basketball analyst said of the rioters, who targeted mostly minority-owned businesses.
“There is no excuse for people to be out there burning down people’s businesses, burning down police cars.”
Barkley also said that authorities got it right by not prosecuting Wilson, who shot 18-year-old Brown six times on Aug. 9 in a controversial incident that sparked nationwide protests while pushing Ferguson to the forefront of the country’s racial divide.
