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


Take care and stay safe. Thanks for the post. They are really messing us all up and making us all so angry. Is this all deliberate, pushing the public to the limit? That is why I don't bite back because I wonder if that is the intention. Motives for this are obvious like trampling on us even more with even less freedom.

There is no real society left in the UK now. Just a lot of angry zombies who aint affording their fix of accessories.

Zombies in the super market, George Romero! Great metaphor.

It is not so black and white (well it is to a degree if you get my drift). We dont know the full story. The police are corrupt, proven repeatedly, and cannot be trusted. Something needs to be done about them.

You're talking cr*p

Do you even know where Britain is?


Don't assume that scum like those in this story - who should be hung from traitors gate and are as British as a small dead wasp is the planet Jupiter - represent the real people of this country.

I'd shoot the lot of them. At least it'd reduce how much we pay out in benefits to those who can't be bothered to work!

Does anyone know if this is racial/ethnic? Many riots as a response to supposed 'police brutality' come from ethnic/racial minorities, although obviously not always.

Mr Duggan had been travelling in a minicab on Thursday and was gunned down after an apparent exchange of fire.

A police officer's radio was found to have a bullet lodged in it afterwards, suggesting they may have narrowly escaped being struck.

Officers had been attempting to carry out an arrest under the Trident operational command unit, which deals with gun crime in the black community, according to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC).

An IPCC spokesman said that at around 6.15pm on Thursday, officers from Trident, accompanied by officers from the Specialist Firearms Command (CO19), stopped a minicab to carry out an arrest.

"Shots were fired and a 29-year-old man, who was a passenger in the cab, died at the scene," he said.

It is believed that two shots were fired by a firearms officer, equipped with a Heckler & Koch MP5 carbine.

A non-police issue handgun was recovered at the scene as well as the police radio.

I'm not sure, but I do know that some people join riots, simply to be in a riot and cause trouble.

Its all about this

A man shot dead by police in north London was a passenger in a minicab stopped during a planned operation, the police watchdog has said.

Officers stopped the car in Ferry Lane, Tottenham, on Thursday to carry out an arrest when the 29-year-old man, named locally as Mark Duggan, was shot.

The police shot a guy and the local community are really pissed about it. The police in London are very heavy handed and people are getting sick of it. Simple as that.

Don't shoot young fathers and expect everyone to just accept it. In Britain we are not a gun carrying nation. Shootings are always a big issue. There have been many cases where the police have shot un-armed citizens here.

Last I read there were 300 odd local community people surrounding the police station and there was a stand off. Very chaotic the whole thing sounds.

I have to agree. This seems to be the case world wide. This is what should be happening in Fullerton Ca. before
any where else. A one world gov. means a one world police force, that serves and protects the elite only. No entity can serve and protect the whole world. That's why a one world gov. is bollox as my brother Britz say.
After what happened in Fullerton Ca. I can no longer defend the cops. Not even the good ones. Now whom is at
fault for that?

a. Me
b. Good cops
c. Bad cops
d. all of the above

If you lay down with dogs you may get up with fleas.
So if good cops gets screwed in the mix ? Oh well that's the company he keeps. The answer is D.

The police shot a young man dead. The people are really angry about it because it is starting to get like the 70s again since this government took office. A while back a well known reggae singer called Smiley Culture died in police custody with no explanation. There was a big march after that.

The police need reminding not to be so trigger happy. If they use force like that they will make people anxious and people will show that anxiety on the streets.

Didn't the civvy that was shot, shoot a police officer first?


The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) has been called in to investigate the death and it said a firearm had been recovered.

It is thought the officer, who was taken to hospital and later discharged, was shot first but this is not known for certain, an IPCC spokesman said


www.bbc.co.uk...

Seems like a justified killing to me. I wonder if these riots could become the start of the long awaited 'English revolution'.

Doubt it.

As a born in England world traveller it is sad to see my motherland so divided by race and religious tensions, all imported problems , due mainly to greed (property investors wishing to profit by immigration.
I have no problem with any race or creed but they seem to have issues with British law and order laws?
A logical and wise method to ensure harmony and peace is to not introduce disharmony on a large scale into your sphere, it is too late now for the UK it has too many divisions.
There are English born , leaving the island to get away, so they can feel at home somewhere not so heavily influenced by Eastern european thugs and Muslim fanatics.
Multiculturism is a fine and beautiful concept, but not at the expense of the host nations own culture and survival.
live and let live, just make sure you don't get killed.

No killing is justified. Where is your compassion? But from what you state, there is the possibility that the shot man may have opened fire first. Accepted as a possibility, but don't be the judge just yet until it is known for a fact.
