There was looting vandalism businesses burned in London several other cities over the last week so.
It started in London with that anger over a police shooting but it soon became a free for all.
That seemed to feature a lot of people saying that they were angry about the economy and social service cuts and other related issues.
Raising the question could we see this here.
In the United States.

And -- real person.
With the real thing you know -- of the games we as we thought okay so.
The question is can we see what's happening over and let it happen here -- are we already seeing it because it's interesting that did.
Narrative it's coming out some folks on the -- -- saying.
What what we're seeing over there is about entitlements an entitlement nation and people.
You know how it failed and then some of the laughter saying no it's about the wealth divide the wealthy are getting wealthier the poor are getting poorer and they've had enough -- that mark.
Tonight ending and they argue it out there I think these are the children of dependency.
The children of entitlements the children of stimulus these guys have on in the early nineties that He marinated in stimulus.
Their entire lives they have no need to -- They have middle they want to accomplish except -- the concrete through windows and stay on you an electronic toys I think that.
The left wing commentator has done their best it kind of brings this up into some kind of social cause.
But it isn't its about the dead zombie costs you get -- but the point.
About a -- and I mean this that the real the real crime about.
Well fan mentality -- is not just a waste of money that the waste of lives and in these these fellows.
Believing that powerful sister lives trashing their own neighborhoods is the is the natural -- -- the world press day.
There does seem to be some sort of -- class warfare mentality among some that there would take a look at this clip just for example.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- What some good yeah let's hope.
Not just aren't aren't under the care of just astounded at what you think -- You're getting it sucks is that what you might not yeah.
That is devastating things it doesn't -- -- value proud of that so you probably it and He.
-- says she's getting her taxes.
Susan there was another one that we -- yesterday they talked about people what wanted to punish the rich that they were angry with the rich.
That would include use has -- I don't know according to the Obama administration is certainly one I don't consider myself for it.
But I tell you what you know I really think and I do agree a little bit with what mark was saying that there is its entitlement.
Generation that we have here here here in this country.
But there is also an issue year that is spreading parallel.
That for the first time constituents agree on and that is they're fed up they do not have hope.
They think the government is totally disconnected from what is going on in the real world and we particularly see that was small business.
And I tell you what over the weekend when the political pundits were trying to tell us that the downgrade of the S&P of the US debt.
Was not gonna impact the markets because the markets -- -- anticipated it.
Small business owners are sitting back on oh -- -- right.
We weren't buying it wears smart that we recognize now the government is gonna do anything for -- Our hands are tied we're being strangled we're being told to create jobs we're being told to reinvest capital of -- businesses.
But where are we gonna get ahead.
Because consumer confidence is down consumer spending is down.
And as long as that goes in -- -- occurring we understand basic math and that is if you don't have the money coming -- -- can't spend.
If you are the group that you know continually gets mentioned as you need to be taxed more it's ridiculous it's automatic or more rhetoric is just writer Craig Whitney yeah that's hot -- I because I think it's not about blaming the parents that's the first thing I can do the best job that I -- as a parent but the truth is.
We all become we become.
But what we can do the first thing is the government really needs act whether it's over in Europe.
Or here you have to follow -- -- how we got into this mess well.
I mean you -- -- -- the fold of the parents but their -- -- August 10 of the population the United Kingdom when nobody in the house not just the kids.
When nobody in the houses down the days -- since Tony Blair took office on May the -- 1997.
-- what's for these kids in town lives have been like 1516.
Net they've been raised in households when nobody works because diabetes.
I cannot disagree without but what I'm saying is when you sign that it's all entitled kids.
There's a lot of kids today my concern is with my kids and what am -- gonna do because we watch the news and they ask the question so.
For me it's really I hate it but but but the argument is that they are being raised -- society that has maybe not to the extent we're seeing in London on your income.
But that we -- an entitlement culture here that is the criticism and so they're sort of learning that I have I don't mean some people may see it that Miami where I come from and people I associate with there's a very hard working -- and I think that you're always gonna have different groups of people in your always gonna have different groups of parents.
You push their kids or.
Or or make that work.
Carter got always have -- -- -- judges had to jump in -- I don't think we have a work ethic in this country anymore I don't is -- now I'm sorry when we're giving people 99 weeks of unemployment and they're still crying that they can't find a job.
I walked by NC job one -- signs all over the place.
You know what I've been an entrepreneur on and off all my life since I was fifteen years old I always figured out a way to make money there are ways to make -- -- -- of about the generation that preceded us in the one before that and I just mention my Nana who's going to be 96 and October.
She had to quit her could high school when she was a -- to go help support her family were taken a job -- the comfort coal company in New Jersey for five dollars and 95 cents a week.
She did that because they were of a mind set back then that you just did what was necessary to help support your network.
Do you really think that the kids today would do that here in America.
Well I think there's again I think there's different groups of kids you're talking about a key again my kids will now that they have to work hard because that's what I instantly I can't talk for parents -- don't but what about on Erica -- my -- Americans -- raise my children whether we could wind up with a situation like you and I.
Here I think you can I mean you've just had told you about charity -- parents' and grandparents' generations in 1940 the average American had an eighth grade education.
That -- -- change you line adults you know the -- kid and tell you about setting forty I think you're grown up.
-- -- right and and you act but goal is the leisurely animal protracted adolescence we got nine year old go riotous trashing their own neighborhoods.
We have a we've extended adolescence about it and be -- the if you're lucky you don't have to leave it -- 26 police and when He.
