The UK likes to put on the Holier Than Though attitude over the USA. They like to think of themselves as more intelligent and more sophisticated than us “Colonials”. The events in the UK in the recent turmoil seem to show otherwise.
Yes, we have had some riots… such as the Rodney King riots in LA. And some looting such as after Katrina. But those were kicked off by some event or disaster… and then they were limited to one city. In the UK it started over pretty much nothing and seems to have been spreading all over Great Britain. Baseball Bats are in high demand.
Stiff upper lip, Chaps.
