Hoonarchy in Melbourne

Drag-racing hoons in the south-eastern Melbourne suburb of Noble Park ran riot on the weekend, setting fires, attacking police, and looting a video rental store.

On hearing of this, my first thought was that it was white Australians rioting, because the Herald-Sun described them as mobs, not gangs. Only foreigners are members of gangs. Sure enough, they were.

(Thanks to Mrs Impala for the neologism.)
