UK Riots

I am still in shock regarding the current events gripping the UK. A peaceful protest exploded into a riot in Tottenham, London. The riot turned into looting and as such has spread across London and across the UK. The media are blaming social media platforms such as Twitter Facebook and Blackberry messenger. There is something deeper going on here. This video was brought to my attention which puts an interesting perspective on the whole youth revolt shall we call it( although quite clearly there are middle age people amongst them).
