Leftist violence tends to take the form of rock-throwing and rioting. (I'm not condoning either, mind you.
Not really. Leftwing groups like the German RAF and Revolutionary Cells, the Italian Brigadi Rossi, the Basque ETA, the IRA, the Japanese Red Army and others used bombs and guns as well, but usually not targeted against an anonymous crowd, but instead against high profile persons from business, government or justice (that they often killed innocent people, who got into their way is another story). If leftwing groups used bombs, they would often warn the authorities just before it exploded to allow them to evacuate the area, while still ensuring that the bomb would cause maximum damage.
