Day 3 of Anarchy

Yesterday I wrote about there being too many boys out on the street for my comfort. Because of this, Sandy and I stayed home to be safe. This turned out to be a good move because the riots continued from yesterday afternoon until the evening.

The riots had a very different feel to them. Friday seemed dangerous and a little scary...a person died and a building was burned. The Saturday was dominated by kids, who had a day off from school. They were mostly tormenting the police who responded mostly in kind. I say mostly because as injured boys walked by our house the police generally gave them kicks in the butt and slaps to the face.

There was an agreement last night and today is much quieter. I think the violence related to this incident is over, but there are still many problems. We will have to be careful.
