Part of the anger and behavior that's been witnessed last week (and in the last year) comes from extreme frustration on both sides. Emotions are running high and the media does not help. Every action and reaction is played out which then confirms the anger of various groups. It's a snowball effect. Whether or not someone voted for Trump, and whether or not someone voted for Clinton, is (to some people) indicative of that person's entire belief system (i.e. you voted for Trump so you are a racist; you voted for Clinton so you support a corrupt criminal). These are the two most disliked candidates in many people's memory. There would be riots, crying, anger and frustration no matter who had won the election. Everyone's fear is that all hell is about to break loose and they don't seem to realize that their behavior contributes toward all hell breaking loose. Many people are not understanding everything that went into why some people voted for Clinton or why some people voted for Trump. In many cases, it was not voting for someone, but against the other. There has been poor behavior demonstrated by both sides and I'm praying everyone finds a way to try to contribute toward moving things in a positive direction rather making things worse because they fear things will be worse.
