10. The youth don't have jobs
Generally, if you have a job, you don't riot.

Then again there is the Freeper answer: just kill them all.

I agree with Tocqueville - if there is no social order you cannot have social inclusion, racial tolerance and fairer wealth distribution. These are positive long term goals but they cannot be achieved in the middle of widespread rioting.
