The rioters remind me of and old bad behavior of young boys from years ago would engage in. They would get a rope and tie it to the tails of two individual cats. They would then hang the rope from the close line with the two cats attached to each end. The cats would get into a viscous fight. It was like each cat would blame the other but neither would have the wherewithal to focus on exactly how they got into the situation they were in.
Other than being perhaps less educated and quite young, the rioters are really no more ignorant than anyone else in the country. The time is coming when all higher on the income scale will feel as frustrated and hopeless as those who are currently acting out. It will be interesting to see what they do.
Some Americans are outraged at the riots over the death of a black man as well as for a host of other reasons.. Those same Americans are fine with the Jeffrey Epstein case being shelved. Who can really point a finger at anyone in the United States today?.
So what is the cause of the riots? I can usually trace the cause of anything back to the big bang. I won’t go that far. The root cause is the rich and powerful live above the law. Then there is the practice of enforcing or not enforcing laws depending upon the situation. Add to that, decades of police brutality (real or perceived), an economic crisis and increasing poverty and that equals riots.
