Cliches exist and persist for a reason--in this case, there is a tipping point, a step too far and one too damned many abuses caught on camera, a point at which people are sick and tired of being sick and tired so they rebel. It has always been thus---things fester until one final outrage...then BOOM!

It has always been a matter of time until the next uprising.
