This is the mind set that "If there's enough of us, we don't have to follow the law" and that has been working for them in the recent past. Remember the protest at Lamerk Park where those with a permit were arrested because there were more of the attackers and the police cowered when presented with the numbers?

Gang mentality. Expect to see more of it as things get worse. Society has excused such behavior as 'they're poor' or 'they haven't had the opportunities that others have had' and given them a pass. Now they feel empowered and form group solidarity because it's working so well. And if the police step one inch over the line, they'll be punished for it.

The old saying "Give them an inch, they'll take a yard" is so true.
