Up north, midlands..... where next?

What next?



I'll tell you where next. If it's going down in Leeds you can bet your arse it's about to go down in Bradford. Then maybe Keighley, Burnley, Blackburn, Liverpool, Nottingham, Sheffield etc.

It will soon spread if it starts up north

And so no surprises here yesterday we had lots of people stating that this Duggan guy killed by the police had shot at the police, turns out none of it was true:

According to Sky the C019 firearms officer has said that he never claimed Duggan had shot at him.

The firearms officer is understood to have told investigators that he opened fire because he believed he was in danger from a lethal weapon. Two shots were fired, it is understood; one hit Duggan and one missed lodging in another officer's radio.

Forensic tests will establish finally whether Duggan fired his weapon at all during the attempted arrest on Thursday evening.

Rachel Cerfontyne, the IPCC commissioner in charge of the independent investigation into Duggan's fatal shooting said: "IPCC investigators are currently liaising with scientists at the Forensic Science Service regarding analysis on ballistics. We would anticipate being in a position to share verified results within the next 24 hours."

The Guardian reported on Monday that initial ballistics tests on a bullet found lodged in a firearms officer's police radio was a police issue bullet – indicating that Duggan had not opened fire at the officer.

Establishing precisely what happened when Trident officers, supported by members of the Met's specialist firearms unit stopped the minicab carrying Duggan on Thursday evening relies heavily on the ballistics results and the trajectory on the bullets fired.

Tests are also carried out to establish the range at which the shots were fired at Duggan. The Met police joined the IPCC to say that any suggestion he was killed in an execution style shooting by shots to the head was "inflammatory" and inaccurate.

The family of Mark Duggan is being kept up to date with developments, the IPCC said yesterday.

www.guardian.co.uk...

Am just wondering, all people here who think that people on the streets should be shot etc, did they feel the same way about the LA riots provoked by the beating of Rodney King?

Don't get me wrong, I don't support rioting, burning and stealing but I wonder if its possible to actually learn some lessons about why this happened in the first place?

Its very easy to say that these people should all be strung up, but rather than string them up after a riot it would be much better to prevent it happening in future, wouldn't it?

Somebody mentioned martial law - well if you want to support TPTB in bringing in martial law thats fine, but be sure that many ordinary law abiding people will resist you taking away more of our rights.

It should be pointed out that Chapeltown is not the nicest area of Leeds, with a history of gangs and shootings ( the most recent shooting being only 4 days ago ).

If the reports of a shooting in that area this evening are true, then it may be completely unrelated to disturbances in and around London.

1955: Paul Lewis of the Guardian reports that rioters and looters have been using Blackberry’s pin-protected messaging system to spread info amongst themselves.

Latest update indicates the hooligans are using BBM to talk to each other, imho, it is time to cut the network of communication so they cannot continue.

Regardless, you'd expect it to incite something with what's happening in London and Birmingham.

So watching BBC news currently and Hackney is currently still getting looted sporadically and the riot police are lining up with dogs to move in.

Current speaker claims that there are currently more people out on the street, currently putting up flaming barricades, than there were in tottenham on the first night of the riots. There is a common feeling it could be worse tonight than before it seems.

You, my friend are a fool. Simple as that.

"Don't have sex"...
That is the first and foremost reason you are alive. Because people had sex.

Geeez...uz...


Thank you for responding to my commentations. So you think that I am a fool ? The foolish are those like as yourself who play with their genitals instead of using their brains. Also take note that I am certainly not your friend, nor would I ever want to be. As Jesus said "Get lost I do not want to know you".

Shops in roman rd bow attacked and also in Bethnal green high street.

To please the racists, the black and asian gangs who hate each other have reportedly taken the opertunity of busy police started fighting in weavers fields Bethnal Green, not uncommon for them to fight in the summer but with no police to respond it could be gruesome.

All those that are blaming the blacks, take a look at the hackney footage, looks like as many whites as blacks to me. Some of the poorest areas in London are black areas hence if they riot in Brixton, Lewisham or Dalston they will be mostly black. Whereas hackney is very mixed and we all live and play and it seems riot together

Chief of scotland yard is currently issuing statement to say we're gonna lock people up who keep doing this for a very long time. '215 already arrested'... I suggest they do something about the lack of prison space quick then.

Also some guy was hurling abuse at him during his statement which seemed to visibly shock him a little bit.

Call me crazy but if I am a poor struggling teen in the UK and I live in say Hackney, looting and burning in Hackney actually will make things worse for me later as businesses will leave or struggle to rebuild. Insurance is not going to be paying for repairing everything. I should loot and burn in other areas, not where I live.

immigrants are not only black or one race in particular..

such a shame, this country could have had full employment,equality and peace. if it was not for open borders and a secret immigration policy that is. lets not kid ourselves IT IS NOT THE INDIGENOUS people of this land that are rioting, even though they have more valid reasons to, of which i alluded to earlier.. The lack of grace from these people is staggering.

So... this could potentially lead to all of the UK eventually if this keeps spilling over???

What happens when a few of these kids gets killed eventually.I'm sure there will be some angry parents building up there... this situation is just get started and far from over.

POWER TO THE PEOPLE!

You are so very welcome, my friend.
I keep my foes close as you can see.

I was trying to show you that your "rules" have a flaw. That you wouldn't be born if your rules applied.
But that would have been a good thing, right? Because then we wouldn't even be having this conversation.

The way you adress me, implies that you know my intellect. You don't.
I actually make a living off my brain.

Oh, and I never play. I always work hard, even with my genitals.
Move along, try meditating.
