The people rioted. As they should.
I am a man of Law and Order. HOWEVER... when it has become crystal clear that our leaders, or what passes for it, pursue policies not only against the will of the people, but also policies that are HARMING us, policies which even endanger the future of our offspring, then... violence is allowed in my book.
This is the first time that I see our moral betters flee for safety, and I like every bit of it.
