This news/video story, “Showing the Rich We Can Do What We Want” from the BBC is very disturbing from a number of angles (click link to watch the video).

  • First, we have two British girls who obviously lack any moral restraint from destroying other people’s property.
  • Second, they equate all businesses with “the rich” when most of the buildings being burned in the video are┬álikely┬ásmall mom-and-pop businesses.
  • Finally, “we can do what we want” is hardly a prescription for keeping an advanced country in first-world status–or simply keeping food on the table.
  • Did I miss anything?
From the story:

Two girls who took part in Monday night’s riots in Croydon have boasted that they were showing police and “the rich” that “we can do what we want”.

The pair who were drinking wine looted from a local shop at 09:30 BST on Tuesday morning, spoke to the BBC’s Leana Hosea.

Croydon was one of several areas plagued by unrest on Monday night, on a third night of riots in the capital.

There were also violent scenes in several other English cities.
