greek riots

Riots erupted over the weekend in Greece after police shot a teenage boy to death after an altercation. You can read all about the incident and see some remarkable photos all over the web, especially here. Apparently the initial mob formed soon after the shooting as text-messaging, email, and instant messaging were used to spread the word quickly.

Why burn and loot shops to express your frustration with injustice? Isn’t burning someone’s shop or car an act of injustice? I get fighting the police (sort of), but I don’t get destroying your own city and robbing your neighbors.
