Riots in Greece

Due to the death of a teenager by a member of an elite police department in Athens, Greece, riots have been breaking out all over the country.

There have been warnings for people not to enter the downtown party of Athens for this weekend until the rioting subsides.

Although the police officer who shot and killed the teen was charged with shooting with the intent to kill, the people of Athens are still upset and fill the streets while burning a car dealership and leaving glass and debris all over the city streets. The rioting seemed to subside for a little while, but soon the streets were filled with people and tear gas again.
