It will be a lot worse here. Remember the Rodney King riots....

Water cannons didn't stop the Civil Rights movement. So the American police released attack dogs....

And Americans won't throw fireworks - we have legal access to firearms....

Those were some crazy riots - lots of attacks on people in vehicles who got caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, looting and arson.

The L.A. police basically cut and ran away the first day and night. People had to defend their homes and stores without any police or firemen.

I still remember the spin they put on that after many Korean businesses were saved. "Americans shouldn't think they can do this Koreans have mandatory military service with a super tough boot camp". I respect the Koreans and did some training with their Marine Corps. They had their points but when it came to operating weaponry we were the masters, they were the pupils.

I dare say a lot of "shop keepers" remember the Korean's quite well and would do the same, but I must add there are not a lot of "shop keepers" in retail any more that aren't corporate chain stores. I doubt the employees of Kohls, Target, or Wal Mart are going to defend their stores with AK's and AR's. As I sit here and think about my retail areas around me - I can't think of an independent retailer other than maybe an "ACE" Hardware store which I know to be a franchise. I think the attitude will mirror that idiot at the beginning of that video - "free stuff man" and "I don't care" if its illegal. Riots in America would turn away from the political and into the "free stuff man" as quickly as they could.
