I was thinking about this compared to the LA Riots or even Ferguson. Whereas LA was completely spontaneous and the beginning of Ferguson too, with so many of these other, more recent ones, each one seems more and more orchestrated. Mostly at night, lead by professional agitators, organized media waiting with baited breathe, people live tweeting, the internet following along. It's sick.
The people protesting certainly know they've got an audience and duly make their performances. I wonder how little traction these things would gain if no one was watching or no one cared enough to.
