* Since, ''Series/BabylonBerlin'' is set in UsefulNotes/TheWeimarRepublic, a riot was something of a weekly occurrence (and only if it wasn't superceded by an attempted revolution of coup d'etat). In the show, a 1st of May demonstration gets out of hand, and ends with the police driving through the streets with ''armoured cars'' and spraying the streets with machine gun fire.

* In the ''WildSeries'', every time the [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent manbeasts]] go into human settlements, the humans start getting suspicious and violent because they subliminally pick up the destructive power the manbeasts are capable of. This in turn makes the manbeasts lose their control and [[ShapeshifterIdentityCrisis involuntarily react]], escalating the situation.

* Nathanael West's ''Literature/TheDayOfTheLocust'' climaxes with a Hollywood movie premiere at which the crowd of star-gawkers, whom the point-of-view character regards as having been disappointed and disillusioned by the life of leisure they thought they would find in Los Angeles after years of work back east - gets more and more restless and agitated, and finally explodes into a full-scale riot after a young child actor [[spoiler:gets stomped to death]]. It's disturbing enough in the book, but John Schlesinger's movie version takes it to the level of full-on NightmareFuel.

** Though not a pre-riot mob, in ''Discworld/{{Jingo}}'', Vimes find the crowd around a man railing against Klatch to be disturbing because they're not cheering, they're ''listening''.



* Happens a couple of times in the ''Literature/ProvostsDog'' books by Creator/TamoraPierce. In ''Terrier'', Beka is deeply unsettled by an unnaturally ''quiet'' crowd that gathers to witness the evidence of a horrible crime, which breaks out into a riot not long after. In ''Bloodhound'', a crowd of people angry over rising bread prices turns into a mob that breaks both of Tunstall's legs.

** [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_London_riots The riots in London and other major centers in England]] that same year.year, which weren't ''directly'' anti-austerity (the catalyst was a dubiously-justified police shooting), but high unemployment and the government's lacklustre attempts to reduce it certainly contributed to the ugly mood; a short while earlier an ''actual'' anti-austerity protest had ended with an AngryMob forcing their way into the head offices of the Conservative Party and trashing the place.
