lol when I think of riffraff I don't have in mind precisely the people of the drawing in the article. What are those, people who like heavy-metal or punk-rock?

To me riffraff are those that are noisy, that have no urban manners nor empathy in locations and contexts where they should be more mindful about what they do and their manners. They tend to dress up quite normal here actually. Some are surrounded by kids that were not taught manners either.

The ones from the drawing in the article usually mind their own business and don't bother you.
