Paris riots

Although admittedly I do not know a lot about the situation, the Paris riots are a shameful display of anti-social behavior. It's yet another example of people blaming others for their own situation. This is particularly troubling because this group of people chose (or their parents chose) to immigrant to Europe, supposedly in search of a better life. And when they do not find what they perceive as a better life what do they do? They try to wreck the very country that gave their parents the opportunity for that new life. Like I say, I may not have all of the facts but to me it seems like gross ingratitude.
