The Anniversary Riot

The Associated Press reports below that on the one year anniversary of the killing of a Greek teen, the rioters decided to riot again on the anniversary date. I don't know if I've ever heard of an anniversary riot.

ATHENS, Greece -- "Masked youths smashed store windows and hurled rocks and firebombs at riot police who responded with tear gas Monday in a second day of violence during commemorations of last year's fatal police shooting of a teenager. The death last year of 15-year-old Alexis Grigoropoulos led to some of the worst rioting Greece had ever seen, with gangs of youths smashing, looting and burning stores in cities across the country for two weeks, protesting heavy-handed police tactics."
