Greek Riots

You see the boy below?


He was 15 year old Alexandros Grigoropoulos and he was murdered by the greek police during an altercation on December 6th.


And people like the guy below weren't too happy about it.


Not just this guy, but a bunch of people weren't happy about it.


I mean a BUNCH of people.


And then people began getting all crazy.


I mean REAL crazy.


And they began burning things.


Not just things, but police officers.


Not just police officers, BUT EVEN CHRISTMAS.


Others just wanted some peace, man.


But you can't just burn Christmas and get away with it!


So they had to run from tear gas.


Finally, things were getting under control.


Except for this guy, he was still on fire.


There was a big mess to clean up.


There was healing to be done.


Not for this guy, he's still full steam ahead.


Oh God, where is the peace?



"The end of the human race will be that it will eventually die of civilization."

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
