Yeah, Police heavy handed tactics in April. Also officers were called in from South Wales who didn't know the area or local politics.

Anyway, I agree with your point about this being allowed to happen in order for new laws to be introduced to control any future Government protests. I really hope we are both wrong though.

what concerns me is the police are not able to control a bunch of kids. What happens when it's organized adults with a real agenda?

What would your true reaction be to seeing these kids being actually shot and laying bloodied in the streets?

Does anyone here really want to see that happen?

By the way, some western sources are reporting that there will be an increase in police numbers, and many will be armed, and may use "plastic bullets" ... which can cause serious injuries and even kill.

Answers/thoughts?


The thing about this, is that many people are saying the police have done their job by killing an armed man, yet is that really what we should be doing, in a country that has no death penalty, and that prides itself on its alleged civilised values?


Can you explain how sentencing someone to death months/years after they have commit a crime is comparable to shooting an armed man who is an immediate threat to yourself and those around you?

If he hadn't have left his house armed or led the life of a scumbag in the first place, then it is more than likely that he would still be alive. Some would call it justice but ultimately it's nothing more than common sense on the part of the police.

Perhaps you would prefer to take the "civilised" course of action and ask him very nicely to put his gun down and allow himself to be arrested, but I would not expect anyone in their right mind to act in such a limp-wristed fashion in that situation.

A "disabling" shot is not sufficient unless it renders him unable to pull a trigger. Do you expect them to shoot the gun out of his hand, Old West-style?

100% agree with this!

May be what would help people understand is if the Met explained what happened, or better still, these people who think you've got time to aim for a limb try it when someone pulls a gun or refuses to surrender a gun. You have to go for the chest because it is the biggest target, that's what police are trained for and they only shoot, here in the UK at least, if there is a perceived threat to life! It's not like America lol Again I don't blame people's ignorance, no wait, actually I do lol

A single shot gives him a reasonable chance to live, if this happened in the US, there would have been 60 rounds in him which would have included the police reloading. I love the hypocrisy of Americans.

Chaos is much harder to control than organization.

Well I knew the other day that the story stunk... I just knew he didn't shoot at police.
This is another BS "murder" of someone.

"Yeah he had a gun" (apparently)... then disarm him, maim him..... don't shoot him in cold blood.

THEY LIED.... they said there was a SHOOTOUT....

The only two shots fired were by POLICE.

Why did he need to die?

But yes, all of this needs to be discussed after the country is brought back under control.



*Also*

Manchester seriously kicking off now.

1 hour warning. Parents, get your children off the streets. You do it now, or we will be doing it for you. Every unemancipated child picked up will be charged for a porportion of damages in the area. Money will go to charities. Your children will be pressed into service for a term not exceeding a year. Your wages will be deducted for their schooling during this period.

People who resist will be shot.

If we pick up your children, and it turns our your family are not landed recognized immigrants, your family will be deported.

Martial law starts in one hour. Curfew is in effect at 6pm. Flights are being diverted. Roads out of town are being blocked. Communications hubs are locked down.

Get your children under control now. There is no second warning.

Blare this in the news, broadcast it to every phone and cell in the area, turn on the old air raid sirens, and have at'er.

They shot him twice, which shows they intended to KILL him rather than simply disable him.

just because the guy got shot, it's not a excuse to riot & loot.

the guy had a gun on him, maybe he aimed it at the police.

if you had people rioting up your street, or you work smashed up or burnt down, maybe you would think differently.

Long time lurker first time poster, anyhow I hope its ok to post lyrics to a song I feel that is quite fitting to this issue.

If its not ok,well then I suggest google search city : hollywood undead


Now I know alot of you will not wish to search due to the type o music they produce,but I assure this song is quite pertinent to London and surrounding areas.



Let's watch it burn [2x]
Let's watch this city burn the world

[Chorus:]
Let's watch this city burn
From the skylights on top of the world
Till there's nothing left of her
Let's watch this city burn the world

My body doused in ash with two empty cans of gas
The only evidence they have is a police sketch of my mask
And it's hard at times to ask if you can save my heart for last
And it's hard to face the facts when the darkness fades to black

It's not just make believe when they make me take a seat
And they put amphetamines in the air and make me breathe
So come on and grab your children look out for burning buildings
And villains who pillage, they're killing by the millions
And billions of people die for a lost cause
So now I pray to my nation destroyed under god

(Say it's the end of the world)
All my battles have been won
But the war has just begun

[Chorus]

The city looks so pretty, do you wanna burn it with me?
Till the skies bleeds ashes and the #ing sky crashes
They catch us with matches to ignite the flame
And all the hopes of a teen deemed #ing insane

Take the pill
In god we trust
Go and kill
God loves us
As in life as in death
Breathing till there is no breath

I will not die in the night but in the light
Of the sun with the ashes of this world in my lungs
But who am I to say let's all just run away
Go grab your saints and pray, we're gonna burn this world today.

(Say it's the end of the world)
As in heaven as on earth
We've been done since our birth

[Chorus]

(Let's watch the city burn) [X2]
The city looks so pretty,
do you wanna burn it with me?
The city looks so pretty
do you wanna burn it with me
The city looks so pretty
do you wanna burn it with me

We use the trees as torches
Do you wanna burn it with me
Fill the streets with corpses
Do you wanna burn it with me
Watch the city #ing bleed
Do you wanna burn it with me
Bring the world to its knees
Do you wanna burn it with me

[Chorus x2]

Let's watch it burn
Let's watch it burn
Let's watch this city burn the world
