Britain has been set ablaze by rioters for three nights in a row. The rioters are generally young and unemployed and are hearing that their future welfare checks are going to be cut. They are setting cars, trash bins and buildings aflame. Police have told citizens whose property and person have been attacked to let the rioters alone and let the police “do their job.” That job appears to mostly be holding enraged citizens back from retaliation against the rioters.

Don’t think for a minute that this can’t happen here.
