So I am sat at work and I see breaking news about riots breaking out in Tottenham as a result of police shooting and killing somebody in the area a few days ago.

The rioters are said to have set fire to two police cars and as I have access to all London traffic CCTV cameras I though I would take a look and sure enough I have a live feed of the riots, and there is indeed burning police cars and growing crowds of angry folk, it is getting pretty lively I must say!!

I am unsure right now if the rioters are doing this because they feel the police shooting was unjust or whatever but I will look more into this as the riot progresses!

Any chance of either a link to a feed or if not, some stills?

How is it you have access?

Cheers.

I have since found this: www.bbc.co.uk...

It says that Riot police have been sent but they are nowhere to be seen on the footage I am watching at this time, seems to me like all the police are hiding for the moment!

They don't need any pointers from us, i'm sure. What happened here in Vancouver was a joke that got out of hand.
Started with some people saying, when the canucks lose I will get drunk and get myself a new PS3 which escalated into a riot, again. We're not that bad.

It's on the breaking news feed live on Sky News as we speak. If possible, check it out. They were discussing it a few moments ago and I'm sure they'll bring it up once again.

I am glad this is happening, because the police in this country need to be put back in their place. The government has given them way too much power, and it has gone to the heads of the police. Justice has clearly failed, so this is the alternative.

My CCTV system is independant of the 'Internet' PC I am writing this on so wouldnt even know where to start, let alone the fact I would likely lose my job if I did haha.

I work for the Department for Transport by the way.

Since my last post lots of Riot police have shown up and are kicking some ass with batons and shields, it sure is making for an entertaining watch I wish I could share :'(

When Cameron and his shabby coalition came to power and declared war on the poor I wrote to the BBC on a commentary predicting riots. There will yet be more.

I am not really one for destruction of property and certainly not against people or police, but it is just a symptom of the bs created by the authorities. They have been so so corrupt and greedy, totally uncaring and are letting our countries disintegrate.

I am afraid when they lose the plot like this we have a duty to let them know one way or another, otherwise their disgusting abuses of power will only get more severe and dangerous. Speak out, shout out, it is your moral duty!

I have a feeling we are descending into civil war, and it will not be a war of clear sides, but everyone for themselves. Gangs vs other gangs, muslims vs the rest of us, neighbours vs neighbours. Society is barely functional, especially in the cities, with law and order (relatively) intact. When that barrier is broken, all hell will literally break loose. The UK is full of animals.

Okay well my shift has just about come to an end, so no more fun and games for me (except a bit of XBOX when I get home)

Currently the rioters have not dispersed and are standing their ground pretty well against the riot police, good on em!

I agree with the comments about how we should speak out against the corrupt police forces that are supposed to protect us and just abuse their powers.

Sorry I couldn't get some footage sorted, if my manager wasn't at the desk beside me today I could have


Peace

I wish I could say you are wrong, but you are only too correct. The UK is indeed a brutish, nasty place full of animals.

It is, however, lack of care, poverty, oppression and a moral vacuum that has created this modern UK zoo.

If the police themselves are the criminals then justice finds a way regardless. Who is to say these people are criminals?
The confusion of the times I suppose. Can't say the police are really here to help us anymore after what i've seen.
There is always that one good cop but most of them are unaware they are the State's personal security rather then defenders of the civilian population.
