I hope they don't plan on something like that which happened in Genoawhere the police seemed to be on some type of drug and went on a beating rampage of the protesters.... Their bosses probably told them things that were not true that angered them and thus lead to one bloody mess...

Let's hope the police officers themselves see that the protesters are there fighting for the police officers rights as well...

If not, then i hope mayhem ensues...

And I have to say I feel exactly the same.

And to preempt the following posts accusing me of inciting...

If your government destroys your financial stability,
invokes draconian laws,
limits your freedom and rights for "imagined" protection,
forces ID cards that you have to pay for in order to continue working,
limits your ability to find a home,
bails out already wealthy bankers,
uses tax-payers money to refurbish their homes,
uses tax-payers money to watch porn,
uses tax-payers money to pay their spouse for being their "assistant",
uses tax-payers money for a second home that isn't even theirs... and then, while all of this is going on,

Then, you have a damn right to be f*cking angry!

All of the above is exactly what is happening in the UK right now. And it's been going on for years.

This is a morally corrupt government, and it has been for decades.

I don't want to see innocent people get hurt, but I damn well won't feel an ounce of sympathy or sadness when I see rioters burning down the banks!

We've sat back and tried the talk, we've been patient and look where that's gotten us. Peaceful protest doesn't work, civil disobedience and outright threats of action do.
They've had their chances (far too many of them) to change the way government works and how the rich benefit through the oppression of the poor, and now they just continue to add insult to injury. They're laughing at us and doing whatever they like because they think they can get away with it.

I hope to god that this week they realize they've enraged the vast majority of this country and that it cannot continue. And if it takes an angry mob, then so be it. They should have thought about that before they hiked up their pay and laughed at the rest of us who are left to struggle for the rest of our lives.

Destroying property and buildings in London will achieve nothing, save to vent frustration in the short term, and further clarify action to limit the right to assembly for everyone else in the long run. Not to mention the insurance claim payouts in the multi-millions for such will only end up making the economic situation worse.

A better example of how to send a message demanding change is to take the direct action to outside the homes of the bankers and others all over the country, as in the case of RBS CEO Fred Goodwin.

If an englishman's home is his castle, then lay siege to the fortress, and make them fear to leave their gilded cage

It won't achieve anything? It'll sure make the banks more cautious, and it'll make the PTB reconsider just how angry the public is.

I don't like it either, but there comes a point where they are just not listening because they don't have to. Without a direct threat to them and their profits, nothing substantial will EVER change.

With regard to the homes of these people, what about their families? They haven't done anything wrong.

If the businesses are targeted, it'll be the banks having to pay for it (probably with the money we've already had to give them), and it's a drop in the ocean considering we've pretty much given them our entire financial future!

In the final analysis, whatever happens; I will have great difficulty to suffer any fool's claim that the transnational Bank cartel and it's sell-out whore government lackeys aren't to blame.

Sorry. Every now and then I get pretty peeved at the notion that the population is expected to behave in a "civilized" manner while their self-proclaimed "betters" treat them like cattle to be bred, culled, and milked.
