Know what’s interesting? Many rioters compared themselves to the underpriviledged and downtrodden youths of middle east asian countries. They even wrote a letter to these countries. One man who they wrote to even replied with “I am sorry but you do not loot to object the murder of a young man, you are using his murder.”
The police can’t heavily retaliate, because they’ll be accused of brutality. And these kids call themselves downtrodden…well it was they who chose to skip school and not work to get good grades.
I live in the north east. I just hope things don’t spread up here, and I hope my friends down south are alright.
I’m not trying to justify the looting at all (and I’m not trying to start any debates, please), but I mean…
Immature or not, there’s definitely something to be said here.
