What's so wrong with being violet? I used to have violet hair I'll have you know! But we've always had uncaring, selfish, rude and violent people - that goes without saying. And they're more noticeable now partly because they can't (yet) go to pubs, restaurants, shopping centres, etc. so are more concentrated in places they can go. Just as managing crime effectively is part of the government's job, so is managing social situations. Governments can't ignore criminals' actions just because the criminals are ultimately the guilty party. So we may disagree on whether the government are taking the right steps to address these problems, but if they aren't making efforts to do so then they are blameworthy. If you get food poisoning in a restaurant, the chef can't say that it's not his fault and the bacteria are to blame.
