Help me out. Why am I getting such a different perspective from you?
Because I live here. The rioters were common criminals with selfish desires. It has nothing to do with the economic status. As a matter of fact, there was a middle class girl who was caught on camera doing the deed; an 11 year old stealing a bottle of wine from Iceland (oh the poverty). As always innocent people were the victims, goods were stolen from local businesses and widespread anarchy and irrational violence. Even a pharmacy was looted. And the NHS is free for British citizens - its probably the best in the world but thats open to debate.
