The people rioting in London are not “protesters” or “revolutionaries,” unless that is you think political change springs from thieving 40 inch TVs from Tesco. If they’re so aggrieved at police brutality, why are they smashing up Apple stores, JD Sports and gold merchants? This is certainly NOT a genuine backlash against an abusive establishment, it’s a bunch of criminals, gang member-wannabes and moronic anarchist hangers-on.
This kind of behavior makes the police look like the good guys, which is why agent provocateurs are routinely used to stage such violence at major summits.
That’s not to say some of the chaos isn’t driven by genuine grievances over police brutality and poverty, but the majority of the violence is being committed by mindless teenage thugs who have let themselves be molded by Britain’s broken society into Clockwork Orange-style droogs.
If this was a genuine “revolution,” the rioters would be at the gates of Buckingham Palace, Downing Street and the Houses of Parliament – not stealing pairs of jeans and tennis shoes at sportswear outlets.
