Doesn’t seem like that long ago.

Guess I’m getting old.

Don’t feel left out, Millennials; I’m sure there’ll be one comparable for your generation soon, except funded by George Soros et al. rather than more or less spontaneous.

    They’ve already had Ferguson. And might get Berkley this weekend. How many riots do those spoiled snowflakes need? Then again I’m old enough to remember Watts.

    It’s amazing, when you think about it, that the underclass hordes waited to riot until after the trial verdict. If the whole thing were to happen again today, the rioting would start as soon as the video of the beating went public.

      And the video would have gone public instantaneously via FB, Twitter or Periscope.
