    No. Why would you think this?

    There won't be more riots. The 2011 was a unique and one-time one - now that it's happened and the backlash has been great, it won't happen again, or at least not in the same vein as the 2011 one. If anything the authorities and cops and whatnot will be more alert and the young crazies won't be as bold - especially in the aftermath of the backlash from the courts.

    There's no reason for it to occur now - especially as the 2011 one stemmed indirectly from the supposed "wrongful" death of that gang-banger. Unless some popular gangbanger gets "murdered" by the cops or some really popular "black" youngster who's known across many boroughs gets "murdered", then I really don't see how riots can occur again on the same scale as 2011.

    What's more, OP, is why you did not ask this question before the summer of 2012? Surely all of the superstition surrounding 2012 (lol!) should have been a prime time for riots?

    In short, there's no reason for riots to occur this summer.
