Of Riots and Tornadoes

It's interesting to note that over 11 nights of intense rioting in France have apparently produced no mortal victims while in a flash a tornado in Indiana killed 22. I wouldn't be surprised if the overall property losses aren't similar. I don't know what this means, but there it is.

Update: The perceptive though shy commenter "anonymous" added some good points:
There will be more deaths. 36 police have been injured and 10 have been shot...The main reason there has been only one death so far is that the authorities have allowed the intifada to proceed largely unimpeded. Eventually the rioters will get bored and this will stop, but when this happens the next time the muslims will have stockpiles of automatic weapons and RPG's available to them.
No doubt. Of course that's one big difference between a natural disaster and terrorism - adapting to their victims' weaknesses. A tornado doesn't learn to exploit our weaknesses - tornadoes haven't "learned" to single out trailer parks. However, whether it's continuing to build trailer parks in tornado-prone prairies, or developing in high-risk flood zones, or importing large numbers of immigrants from third-world countries, we in the civilized world don't seem to learn any better than tornadoes.

There will be more deaths. 36 police have been injured and 10 have been shot. One was shot in the throat. The police have been ordered not to shoot back when fired upon. The main reason there has been only one death so far is that the authorities have allowed the intifada to proceed largely unimpeded.
Eventually the rioters will get bored and this will stop, but when this happens the next time the muslims will have stockpiles of automatic weapons and RPG's available to them.

The rioters ARE bored, that´s why they are rioting. No one goes homeless, or without food and healthcare in France unless they choose to. So what exactly are they rioting about?
