I guess it all really depends on the nature of the riots. A lot of people will say "it's just a bunch of scum bag criminals" but others (including the rioters themselves) will claim it has something to do with their standards of living and the way the Government treats them. I think it's really just a bit of both. Some people are pissed off and some people just want to steal things. Some people may even want to do a bit of both. It's a very complicated situation and it annoys me to see so many people who don't even live there trying to generalize it and twist the facts, as if they understand everything about every country without even needing to be there. These are just the initial sparks of a much larger flame that is yet to ignite. Tensions are high and soon or later something is going to give big time. Just be prepared for when that time comes. We all know you are scared and constant b**ching wont help.edit on 16-8-2011 by ChaoticOrder because: (no reason given)

exactly how i feel. this was a foolish thing to do on the mother's part. if you're going to punish them, do it yourself, don't bring in the police.
the mother has now permanently alienated her daughter by robbing her future. how her daughter has nothing productive to do but participate in another riot.
Under a criminal rule, remaining in your house during a revolt is being complicit in the crime, even though you are not profiteering from it.
All thanks to her MOTHER'S TREASON and State repression of a REVOLT against this criminal order
