Our police in the states can bust in doors, and have nearly 100 bullets fired at the resident and... nothing. Our police can gang up and beat a mentally handicapped man to death while he screams for his father and... nothing. Our police can shoot numerous unarmed suspects in the back as they flee and... nothing.

Your police slips up and kills a man an you guys go nuts on the police! Hats off to you English. We may act tough yet it's you guys who always act when being stomped on.

Fox news just called him a reported gang member that was out to avenge a rapper cousin. No mention of police.

Ironically, I think the thing that keeps this from happening in America is our 2nd amendment. If we retaliated out of anger, it would escalate into something far uglier and potentially become a series of armed skirmishes. It's kind of like the Cold War where our safety rested in the huge stockpile of nuclear weapons both sides held on to. Nobody wanted an all out war.

I think the biggest safety net our government has is our armed citizens. They know that we don't really want a war and we certainly aren't the types to bring knives to a gun fight so... it's a dilemma, to say the least.

I've just been watching reports about it and details are coming out. A Gang-Banger shot at a Police Officer who shot him back in self-defense. A bullet was found lodged in the Radio showing it was in fact self-defense. Apparently the guy was out on some sort of vendetta against another Gang.

The key here is Gang-Banger. The scum of the Earth.

For some reason a bunch of thugs are rioting and doing the usual. Destroying innocent peoples property who have nothing to do with it. Apparently the rioters are supporting the Gang-Banger for whatever sick reason they have.

Seems to be a lot of that kind of stuff going on there these days.

Typical mainstream media - making the police look like the victims right after they were involved taking bribes in the phone hacking scandal. Still, if this is a gang riot then I guess it should be stopped.

Hats off to you Cuervo for your post about the reasoning for the inaction here. I never really played the thought through to the end but you are right!

I am afraid of either retaliation occurring or being a part of it because I know it will escalate verry quickly.

I am also not sure if they want that so they have an excuse to crack down further.

Very perceptive!

That just further proves they have more respect for their own liberties than we do. Just a questionable shooting by their police and they riot. We know that our cops are killing us unjustly, no question about it, and we don't do anything.

I think to an extent you're right, certainly has the potential to get alot ugly in the states, but it probably needs for one to happen to get anything done, atleast for the police to realise they can't just go around doing that, the government need to be harsher on there police force for going against everything they stand for, to help & protect the population not to hurt & make them feel insecure

It seems most of the storey ive read regarding the US police that they are just looking down on them like scum and shooting dead thos who go against there word



might be a good idea to not carry one along & shot at the police in the US and just set thing on fire

So you support Gangs and one of their members killing a Cop? Amazing!

You support destroying innocent peoples property who have nothing to do with it? Even more amazing!

Even stranger you linking the two events together.

This strange attempt to link this to anything else is troubling. It shows that those involved are incapable of rationality.

I can't help but wonder what part of self-defense people cannot understand? Even more, how anyone can justify the destruction of innocent peoples property for any reason?

Of course their is no connection. These are just criminals, acting like criminals. It's not some social statement. Criminals always try to use propaganda to justify their crimes. No thinking person is fooled by that nonsense.

Sorry man. I don't believe that. Criminals need no reason and they'd be doing that everyday. My connection was obvious and solid enough:

The English retaliate over a local man getting shot and wasn't even in cold blood.
The Americans sit idly by and film their fellows getting murdered and post it on Youtube.

Connection is warranted.
