Well anytime a government has gone too far and stopped working for the people (people meaning the working class, not the yuppies sipping wine on a 2k foot yacht), that usually leads to Revolution. Hey the French Monarchy learned about the same time King George did, that a people pissed off is a mighty force to be reckoned with. When the people have had enough, heads will roll and more often than not, the heads that end up rolling are whoever the incompetant person(s) were that just kept letting stuff go by and being too lazy to get involved.
This has got nothing to do with politics !
These are groups of yobs who are opportunistically taking advantage of stretched policing to cause violence and mayhem. They are doing it because they enjoy causing destruction. This is a lot of people behave when they feel emboldened by a lack of law and order.
If it was motivated by the people being pissed off at the government, then you would see a more diverse representation of people. As it stands, almost all of the trouble-makers are male teenagers and young adults from a lower socio-economic class.

These punks have gone past the point of protest to mob rule for entertainment.
Legitimate protests are not about looting and destroying small businesses or throwing gas bombs on the passing cars of fellow citizens. I'll bet that most don't even know the real reason for the original uprising but are just seeing an opportunity to smash and grab.
How is stealing a TV or food from a grocery store owned by a small business man justified as fighting the system? It only creates dissension among those that should be standing together and weakens the message along with discrediting the messengers when it comes time to fight the REAL fight.
I'm all for the rally against the elites but not against my neighbor in the same boat.
