Do You Think We Will See Riots in the United States? [POLL]

Riots in London and other cities around the world are breaking out and most if not all of them can be traced back to economy. Here are some reports from CNBC:

Police in London say the violence began during a vigil for a man, Mark Duggan, who’d been killed by police. However, those on the streets say what’s happening goes beyond one man’s death.

In late June, half the public schools in Britain where closedby a massive protest over public pensions cuts, including three major teachers’ unions, customs and immigration officers, and air traffic controllers. Some 750,000 people took part in the protest.

London’s press has reported that discontent has been simmering among Britain’s urban poor for years, in neighborhoods like Tottenham, where the riots started.

Some 250,000 people took to the streets of Tel Aviv, Israel, on Saturday over the rising cost of living. Demonstrations actually began last month when a few people set up tents in an expensive part of Tel Aviv to protest rising property prices.

The protests have moved to other cities in Israel, where some 50,000 people rallied.

Spain, Greece , Portugal

All three of these European Union nations have experienced protests and rioting in reaction to government austerity programs and bad economic conditions.

And there are many other examples. The question we and others have is, could we see riots here in the United States over the state of our economy? Should people riot? Let us know what you think in today’s LFN Poll of the Day.
