Wait a minute did i just read that right?.
That its basically the ethnic minorities fault for your high gun crime rates?
If you don't mind id like some evidence to back this up, since a pretty bold accusation to make.
I will be more than willing to eat my hat if your right.
One of the policemen was treated in hospital for bite wounds after the attack in a shopping precinct in Croydon, south London, Wednesday. The officers, aged 34 and 29, were on sick leave with bruising and knee injuries.
A number of men in their 30s and 40s and several women joined in the attack. All those involved were black, London's Metropolitan Police said.
One of the officers who was bitten, and is now recovering at home, said: "They were acting like animals, but I hate using the term 'animals' because they would not do that. Animals have a reason for doing something.
A 15-year-old girl was arrested at the scene on suspicion of assault and bailed. When her parents arrived to pick her up, they complained about having their summer holiday interrupted, one of the attacked officers added.

the system that we see, has many sides, we give an opinion but not always aware of (all) of the facts. Why does the law always seem to work one way? The government make laws for most but (they) do not stick to them,it is the people who should have the final say, not only by the voting box, 4 years can be a long time to control .
I believe it because I live close to the area and I know these types of kids, sometimes rarely they DO walk around in a group of about 30. And not for doing nothing, they got trouble on their mind.
They walk aound in groups and try to intimidate everyone around them, they are ALL weak minded, self concious and pathetic, no offence to one of you if your reading this lol, the reason they hang in big groups is to make them feel less self concious less weak, it makes them feel better, they feel part of something.

It's almost impossible for anyone outside the UK to understand really, only first hand experience really gives you the full picture. This 'reaction' comes from everywhere, be it rural or urban areas.

I'd disagree slightly with the code of dress, I think it's the life style choice that truly describes a chav, ie scum bag worthless.

Wow. Times have changed. I lived in England 21 years ago.
Back then it was a punk rock scene and the little gangs in the townships were always fighting each other, throwing bricks at each other etc.
I remember after going to a club, when it closed there was always a fight, people getting naked in the club and throwing chairs, etc. But they did not dress in the clothes you are mentioning. They were always punked out.
Ill have to go online and check that out.

Its just pretty sad when the cops are unarmed and can't even protect THEMSELVES. Sheesh a lot of good they would be if they were called to protect unarmed civilians that are being attacked by thug/mobs.

You people in the states have a funny view of life in the UK.
Still, must be difficult accepting the world from your polythene and duct taped wrapped bunkers, surrounded by guns you need in case us Brits come back and recolonise you and living in a permanently paranoid state of fear about "dem dere terrorists" and despising anything that isn't american whilst eulogising about freedom of speech in your designated zones right?
Raises an eyebrow. You people on that little island have a funny view of life in the US. Frankly I am getting a little sick of the US bashing by Brits, it is in you television shows and throughout your little inbred Island. You are so reserved because you have been so inbred and have had a major braindrain in the past 50 years. I will be the first one to state how frustrated I am with America's current mindset but our people have been brainwashed by the best techniques mankind has ever had.
Oh and the guns are for our Government not you. You need to understand most of us here still have our balls. Once this nation awakens to the brainwashing we will again be the ones that pull it out and save mankind.
Now go eat some spotted dick.

Most rednecks named Cleetus have more character and are more human than 10 beer drinking football crazed Brits put together.
We have stood by you people too long. We are good people and are under some heavy crap over here and deserve a little more respect than that.
