Deep social distrust
And then there is another thing that wrings about the determination to act by mayors. They complain that the criminal justice system works too slowly. They want preventive action to prevent riots. But the anger and violence obviously runs much deeper than that one inflammatory post. Violent drill raps are nothing more than a catalyst for incidents of violence. The cause of those incidentsRead all about in this research thesis: "Favourite rappers or favourite cappers?" lies in the underlying violent street culture. If you want to prevent that, you have to invest in community centers, youth services, mental health services and other facilities. Things that have been cut back enormously in recent years.
And that "drinking coffee demonstratively" is a loaded term has obviously nothing to do with the caffeinated drink itself. A deep distrust in government is the underlying problem. If the government wants to solve that, it must regain the trust of its citizens. And taking repressive measures that are legally questionable cannot be a good base for that restoration of trust.
