We apparently have reports of the initial outburst that started the whole shebang, btw.
Apparently a confrontation broke out between some younger tibetans and the police forces, and essentially all the youngers ones got a bit rowdy.
It is said the older monks who were at the scene were appeasing for the youngsters to stay calm.
It was on the BBC 24 hour news channel about an hour ago, so you might not be able to find anything significant yet.

Well, looks like you want an opposing view well ok, I will give you one.
In 1950-51, the proud Chinese troops invaded Tibet. While occupying the country, the brave Chinese got the Tibetans to sign the seventeen point agreement. I imagine it wasn't hard to get the Rulers of Tibet to "agree" considering thier Army was crushed and rapidly. I wuold venture a guess, there are some Tibetans who get a little irked from time to time too say the least.
How was that for another view?
