    What is sad is that you support the premise.

    When things get bad, flashpoints become pretty common. All it took for London to go up in flames was a cop shooting a guy, and that happens here like twice a week.
    For: legalizing drugs, gay marriage, abortion, guns, universal health care, public sector jobs, nuclear power, free education, progressive taxation
    Against: corporations, make-work, the 40 hour work week, intellectual property, imperialism, "homeland security," censorship

    Well apparently they shot an unarmed man in the face twice with a submachine gun at point blank.
    Cops know better to save their lives in the states I figure.

    There's always that aspect to riot, but when people are pushed to a breaking point; things break. The real problem is that nothing the government has done was done to serve the People. It was made to secure their buddies future, to preserve their tomorrow. We bailed out the banks and wall street and such, and when that was done the urgency to fix the problem and reverse the damage was gone. Then it just got bogged down in partisan politics. People are getting pissed. Yes, they should focus their anger. If you're going to riot, go after government stuff, not private business. But there is little focus in a riot, but they can be indicators of overall disgruntled, dissatisfied, and an unserved public.

    No, our cops beat homeless people to death in the streets, we're just used to it.

    It's the premise that people are still flogging this conspiracy theory. It genuinely makes me sad. American misunderstood me, seems you did too.
