Senior policeman suggesting banks are "viable targets"

Acccording to Britain's number one policeman responsible for public order, the middle classes are quite likely to riot across the country this summer.

With so many people losing their jobs, Superintendent David Hartshorn, who heads the Metropolitan police's public order branch, thinks that middle-class individuals who would never have considered joining demonstrations may now seek to vent their anger on the streets this year.

According to Paul Lewis from the Guardian, Hartshorn said,
banks, particularly those that still pay large bonuses despite receiving billions in taxpayer money, had become "viable targets". So too had the headquarters of multinational companies and other financial institutions in the City which are being blamed for the financial crisis.
