What is your take on the unrest in North St. Louis County?

FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Imagine finding out your business was being looted by watching television.  That's exactly what happened to the owner of Zisser Tires Sunday night.

“It’s caused heartache and pain, loss of jobs for people today, it’s not productive,” John Zisser said.

Zisser’s business was one of many business looted Sunday night after residents protested the officer-involved shooting of Michael Brown, Jr.

Zisser said the damage to the business will cost thousands of dollars. Cars were smashed and Zisser said 85 percent of the showroom is gone.

“You just look around at the devastation and ask why? What did they get? They just took to be taken,” Zisser said. “I’m optimistic the looting is over with.”

Zisser said he will take precautions to make sure the remaining inventory is not stolen.
