Hearing on the radio some of the rioters/looters interviewed ("We're getting our taxes back") made me so angry. What gives these people the right to do this? Heard it compared to Clockwork Orange this morning - that's one book I was unable to listen to (on audio books) because the senseless violence made me feel so sick to the stomach.
I'd shoot the bloody lot of them!
Sometimes the grass will appear greener on the other side because it has been fertilised by bull****
I'm actually steering clear of this on the news - cos it just gets me so angry.
Anyway - the police got shot at FIRST, they've got a police radio with a bullet embedded in it apparently.
It's just a completely fubar'd country - we've only been away a few days and look at it!
People have seen looters breaking into shops and trying on different sized trainers before they steal them. Actually, that's not looting. I see looting as breaking into food shops after an earthquake cos the government can't get water to you.
This is just theft.
This is just youth UK.
This is just why we left.
Well Lpool is kicking off- quite a few areas and 300ish looting in city centre. Heard Manchester, Bristol, Leeds and of course Birmingham has trouble going on.... madness
I've never understood why the British police don't have water cannon or tear gas.
It seems to be part of the mentality in these inner city areas to have a riot every few years - there haven't been any for a while now and I was surprised that the UK didn't kick off in sympathy when France had a load of riots a couple of years ago.
Riots always happen in summer and always in the school holidays when the kids are home from school and bored and hanging around the streets in the evening. These copycat riots are purely opportunistic, just an excuse to go thieving, as they know the police are overstretched and it's too much of a drain on resources to start arresting people. No doubt the anarchists are in there trying to stir things up but it's just thieving pure and simple. So sad.

Send in the army...water cannon..plastic bullets !!! Old mad Ken Livingston says its in protest to government cuts..excuse the language but wtf!!!! Only 225 arrested..BUT only 36 charged. About sums it all up!!!!!
We nanny these so called hooligans!!! Lock em up..get rid of legal aid lawyers and send them on boot camp!!!
The government is sooooooooooo afraid of its own shadow!!!! And Cameron is about as effective as a chocolate teapot!!!!!! And so are the rest for that matter!!!!!
To be honest I've never got on well with the police but I would willingly take my hat off to them for putting up with and dealing with all the hassle there at the moment.
We had batten guns (plastic bullets) in NI and are now no longer used, give them to the police to use.
I really haven't been following this until I just read on the BBC that they having been kicking off in Peckham where my sister and her kids live. I will be taking more notice now, this is just madness and a good reason why I would never live london or any other UK city for that matter.
