Interesting piece, but it's a shame you had to ape the rest of the left-wing media in mischaracterising the response of the right. It simply isn't the case that the right-wing pundit referred to above does not consider the underlying causes of the violence - he just identifies different ones, being family breakdown, lack of school discipline, a culture of entitlement creates by our benefits culture, and so on. And while I agree that explanation is not the same as justification, if that explanation amounts to "they were forced into it by circumstances", which is what the standard left-wing explanation amounts to. That may be the case, but, in the end, if you smash in Currys' windows and grab a TV, you did it. You didn't have a banker or a politician forcing you to.
