Fox New reporter Adam Housley took this heart-breaking photo of Jay Johnson, owner of the Queen’s Royal Touch barber shop and parlor in Ferguson. As Twitchy has been reporting, it was just one of many businesses destroyed by thoughtless thugs and looters last night after St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch announced the local grand jury’s decision not to indict police officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown.

Shop owners and their employees face heavy clean-up costs, lost revenue, and ruined holiday business.

A glimmer of hope: One good-hearted reader watching from afar has already taken action.

Now, that’s leadership and inspiration.

May the acts of kindness spread farther and wider than the flames of destruction.
