It's the JOBS, stupid Tebaggers!

A large fire breaks out in shops and residential properties in Croydon, south of London

Hundreds of thugs ran riot across the city, looting shops and setting fire to buildings and vehicles for a third night with police apparently powerless to stop them. Above, riot police walk past a burning building in Croydon
Unless we're ready for some real riots in America, we better do something about the job situation.  Pronto.
The police shot a black guy in suspicious circumstances. Feral kids with no jobs ran amok. To Tony’s mind, this was a riot waiting for an excuse. In the hangover of the violence that spread through London, the uprisings seemed both inevitable and unthinkable. Over a few days in which attacks became a contagion the capital city of an advanced nation has reverted to a Hobbesian dystopia of chaos and brutality.
We're one flash-point away from total chaos.  It's happened in Milwaukee already.
