      We’ve done it here, and having lived through the Watts Riots and the Rodney King riots, I’ve had enough rioting here, thanks all the same. Your uncivilized response is “appreciated”.

    • Kat

      Ugh, rioting is NEVER an appropriate activity. Never ever. Protesting, now that’s fine. But rioting hurts innocent people. (And for the record, as a slightly-more-liberal-than-not, I think both parties have done QUITE enough to hurt this country, and it’s time to get past partison bullsh*ttery and discuss the ACTUAL problems without acting like children, don’t you?)

  • Nadine Morrison

    I, like many Americans, have always perceived Brits as well mannered and well spoken – a step above, if you will. I could not believe my eyes watching footage of police dogs chasing after people and fires blazing. Reminded me of the United States in the 50s and 60s. So disturbing

  • Neil

    A generation with a false sense of entitlement go on the rampage, destroy other people’s lives and their own community to boot. Time to start spending money on education and stop telling these kinds that they’re victims.
