To be fair the origional poster is lacking first hand experience. Violence can be bad everywhere but from what Ive seen, a bar fight in America is a total joke compared to a proper British one. They seem to wrestle and box were in England its all broken bottles and eye gougeing. This might sound immature but most Americans would bab their pants in they were in the vicinity of conflict that happens every Friday and Saturaday ( Saturns Day) in every city without fail. I might be wrong but I could have nearly fallen asleep seeing the one bar fight I did in America, didnt really capture that sickening, adrenal fight for you life feeling of the ones in England.

Well i took to the streets in protests, and got kettled, hit with a shield and chased down the street.... Just for being unhappy about the state of my country.
The problem lies with the police. The Police in the UK are taking on elements of thuggery (treating the G20 for an example as an excuse to 'crack hippy skulls') and don't seem interested in defending the law.
Honest to god, you can watch the reality TV police shows in the Uk, and you'll see police PUNCHING suspects on TV. **
It's a way of conditioning us. A great class divide, for as long as the lower classes are made to feel stupid, dumbed down and worthless then there will be a constant flux of idiots who will take advantage of this. Then as long as we have the idiots, then we'll have the police treating us all the same.
In regards to being disarmed, this isn't really a problem, as unlike America, we don't need guns to solve problems. We're a tough breed of people us Brits...
Unfortunately our police are becoming 'Americanised' , carrying tazers and guns now, which is really sad.
** Yet the Police aren't there when you need them? Twice i've been jumped by gangs (once in a store robbery and once on a bus) and the police weren't there to help. I had to rely on my own skill and wits to get out of the situation.... I could have been stabbed or battered to death, but luckily i managed to survive.
My husband is british, he is quite aggressive and certainly will not take much crap from anyone.
Castrated? No, but the British public has a disturbing amount of trust and complacency in allowing the social institutions and government decide what what is right and wrong, acceptable and allow alot of things to happen without much protest.
But no, not castrated. many are quite sick of it, and try to leave the UK. They aren't weak, they just have a heavier boot grinding down on them, that's all.
