they were pissed that a kid was shot by police. it turns out he didn't shoot at them. yes, criminal elements were brought out and looting ensued. cops were actual targets for a very short time. if we see curfews/martial law over there, or another case of police brutality, it will start all over again. where it goes is up to the government's response.

I doubt they will get much more power but I hope the softly, softly approach is never used again, it only made it worse.

I have the nasty feeling that some of the public may support this.
They're conveniently forgetting all the people that got together through social networks to organise clean-ups and resistance against the rioters.
