How to Respond to the Paris Riots

Sometimes no response is the best response

Sometimes rage just happens, and the best thing to do is stay out of the way until the worst is passed. I don't know. I've held off responding this afternoon because I don't feel I'm someone who can answer that question.

mob *rules*

The contradiction of disenfranchised and angry people destroying their own neighborhoods exists because it is impossible to organize a mob to take the buses to the uptown neighborhoods. People get on their streets, voice their dissatisfaction and get angry. When the police come, it gets ugly. There are no rules of engagement. It is unfortunate and certainly doesn't help their cause. Even if they did make it to the richer neighborhoods, they would still be hated but they'd be dangerous too.
