They suffer for, and inherently understand, the economic problem today: few good jobs for high school grads like themselves; gender discrimination by schools and colleges against those young men who are smart enough to attend and graduate from college; and America's failure to create enough college graduates so that high school grads can make a liveable wage.
Here's one poignant story about the Olympic gold medalist rioter whose friends noted, "he's a decent guy" and "it's a cry for help."
No sympathy for rioting, destroying democracy, their leaders, or all the wrong 'solutions' and misinformation they are being fed. Go ahead and vilify them, but remember you don't have any solutions for their pain. So yeah, sympathy for these young men whose lives were destroyed a long time ago by our anti-male educational system.
