    Word "people"

    I am wondering if my omission of the article is correct in these sentences:

    1.One should respect all people no matter their racial or national origins.
    2.Politicians usually do not respect ordinary people.
    3.The credulity of people is easily exploited by those who want to control them.
    4.Thousands of joyful people attended the concert yesterday. (or should it be "of the joyful people"?).
    5.There was a large crowd of angry people who wanted to come inside the building.( or should it be "the angry people"?)
