Gavin McInnes makes an interesting assertion: Inner-city life isn't dangerous. It's non-stop fun and adolescent behavior, and the riots are merely the ultimate high. I think he overstates the case, but he has a point. Great piece. Excerpt:

This is what happens in a world without fathers. When there is no discipline, adulthood is perpetual adolescence. The fatherless Puerto Ricans in my Brooklyn neighborhood get their fades retouched every three days. This means lining up at the barber's for hours waiting to get the same ridiculous haircut they've been getting their whole lives. They get mani-pedis, too. Without a dad to slap you upside the head, life becomes one big spa and there's nothing political about it.
