Riots

Standard

I know it’s hard to understand but please try. Young people are angry. Politicians don’t speak for them and the police treat them all like criminals. Imagine being told you should get a job when there are no jobs around, imagine feeling trapped because you can’t afford to get an education and because every benefit you’re currently claiming is being cut. Young men need stuff to do, they’ve got testosterone to burn and this is the only way they know how. I’m angry that people are hurting as a result of this but i’m even more angry at the situation which young people are facing in this country and that this is still the only way they know how to express it
