Rioting is street fighting. It's a European thing. Wherever there is a preponderance of Euros, you will have street fighting.

What? Clearly you've never been to New England. If you could make a comparison. you'd know Maryland is a border state, neither northern nor southern, with a character that reflects as much. Baltimore is a fascinating city, a city I grew to love even with all its foibles. It's hard to watch it struggle.

Baltimore is a mid-Atlantic city. Calling it the Northeast is a stretch....Its definitely not New England, but it certainly has more in common with Philadelphia than Savannah.

Indianapolis was one of the few big cities that didn't have race riots in the 1960's when Martin Luther King was asassinated and it seemed like every big city with a sizeable black population had a riot that involved lots of looting and burning. From about 1965 until about 1971 or so, every summer seems there were race riots. It was like a rite of passage for a city to have a riot. The Temptations song that was popular at the time , "Ball of Confusion" , documents in the line "streets are ablaze in the summertime". Sly had an album "Theres a Riot Going On".

Yeah, you need more than a dozen people to have a riot. Otherwise, it's kinda hard to make the news.
