"here in france two kids was killed by cops and first minister insult people from suburb so they revolt and burn cars (as usual)"

its indicative of a different kind of political landscape, as far as i am concerned, that you can say ''as usual'' to this. of course, there was no rioting when cops hit a man. hell, in my city, cops kill minorities often and so very little happens (e.g. portland imc - 2004.03.31 - Pervasive Culture of Violence in Portland Police Bureau Leads to Killing <> ).

to me, this is sickness and apathy. i am not condoning, necessarily, what is happening in france (in fact, i dont think hundreds of towns participating is "as usual"; but the fact remains, most of europe is more prone to take to the streets than couch-potato u-s-of-a.) ... all i am saying is what we see is two very different ways of dealing with things.

perhaps, secretly, what i wish is that the u.s. marginalized and abused would learn a little from their european brothers and sisters.

i now end my political rant. heh.
