French Pension Riot Through Pictures

The Big Picture has a 40 page spread of photos with captions covering the above mentioned French riots.  And, just announced to me by AK Fan, the French Senate has passed the pension reforms for austerity that has been the hot button topic in Europe this week.  I wonder if this will increase the fervor of the riots in France? 

Are these pictures a prelude to what we may see here in the USA as Congress votes in the coming years to raise retirement ages, cut benefits, and hopefully, pay down our debts?  Ugliness indeed.
