Well if you don't learn from why it happens, it will happen again. As I said, not justifying any actions or anyone, I think rioting is a complete waste of time and energy and I'd rather work for change another way. But then luckily I haven't been raised on some forgotten hell-hole estate in London where life is very different and what you maybe class as 'crime' is merely background noise.
As for gaining employment, many are second and third generations who have NEVER had a job, so I don't think that is motivation any longer. And having worked a lot in and around the smouldering areas of London recently, the kind of jobs that are available are dire and truly low paid - I wouldn't do them.
As I said, currently everyone loses.........
