Since many of you reading this live in the United States, we don’t often see some of the craziness that goes on in other countries. And it’s not like we’re talking 20 or 100 years ago. Deaths and violence occur every single day. And it’s not as though it doesn’t happen here either. It’s just that if it happens here, we know about it.
Speaking of which, I feel like rioting has really gone up in the last year. Maybe I’m wrong but even here in the states people are rioting. Remember Occupy Wall Street? That caused some serious stuff in various cities around the country.
Anyway, I felt like sharing some crazy riot footage over the last year. Check out the videos after the jump….

Occupy Oakland Riots – Oct 2011
Last October police clashed with hundreds of demonstrators in the city of Oakland. It happened when hundreds marched to show their anger at police clearing an “Occupy Wall Street” camp. Officers shot several rounds of tear gas into the crowd, who were trying to reclaim their position within the city center.
