They are surprisingly organized, handing out fliers, communicating with friends, this amazes me. There's got to be some "masterminds", these brainless thugs couldn't be so organized, could they ?

ex: from Twitter:

5 live producer reports seeing rioter with loud haler - calling for friends, seems very organised

What I don't get is why burn your own street ? wtf ?

Also, are there really so few police officers that they can't get this bloody thing under control ? Where the hell are the water cannons, smoke grenades... you know.. all the riot stuff ?
Seems almost like the cops are dragging their asses (no offence), then again, British police has always been a joke (no offence again).

Why so? These people do not have a political agenda. Their agenda is rather more simple. It's all "me", "me", "me". It is all about theft. These rioters are merely in their own bubble of stupidity and isolated from the reality and the social norms which most people live by. They care not for anything but themselves and their own "socal" misfits. They hate the police (or think they should hate them) because the police get in their way. They hate authority, but take all the welfare they can get and expect more. The police should throw the book at them.

Regards

A media blackout won't work. This is going to spiral with all the social media outlets. Do you think these thugs are watching BBC or sky news? Nope, they are communicating with their newly acquired laptops and blackberrys.


True, but I reckon several media helicopters buzzing around overhead is adding to the thrill that these scumbags are getting.

Compare this to the Bristol riots earlier in the year where ONLY major players were targeted (police, Tesco, etc.) by politically aware people. It's completely different, just look at the age differences too.


I take it you where at the Bristol riots? because i was, and a good 80 to 90% of those rioters were not poltitically aware in the slightest, granted a few of them were there for ligit reasons but the majority were students, drug addicts and squatters. And the only 'major players' targeted was Tesco due to the recent opening after 90% of the local community told them where to shove it but the local council gave the go ahead because they claimed they would not be able to cover the legal costs at court

Doubt they'll get the water canons out;

2247: Police officers and firefighters are struggling to cope with the sheer level of damage. Several properties and vehicles have been set alight in Croydon.

If the firefighters are struggling to cope with the fires their won't be a spare truck to blast the rioters away :[

On BBC news theres a woman talking from Birmingham saying it's very well organised and they are communicating with radios. Strange.

Hopefully post riots people will realise that pandering, wishywashy soft soaping kids does not work.

They need a good slippering now and again.


Bring back corporal punishment in schools and the birch.

Kids have no fear or discapline these days and a good dose it will do them good and society as a whole

Dont troll...it doesnt suit you


Last night there was NOTHING on UK Tv news......im not going to keep arguing with people like you
So contribute...or leave eh

EDIT: Im talking about enfield, chingford, brixton....they were NOT reporting that last night until the very early hours. Read the first few pages and you will see me post something along the lines of..."They are reporting on this now"

Well, I had a "water cooler" moment with a colleague this morning, he mentioned Enfield & I mentioned Brixton. That's because we heard about the rioting last night ... it was on the telly.

I know you perhaps couldn't drag yourself away from "Songs Of Praise" ... but honestly, this was all over the mainstream tv news yesterday.

During the 1981 riots, there was a huge concern that reporting riots bred copycat riots. So it wouldn't surprise me if editorial staff have been put under pressure to slightly delay their stories somewhat ... but nowhere near the extent you suggest.

I've still yet to see an interview with anyone who can tell us why they're rioting. They don't even seem to know themselves.

New update on Cameron:

2246: Prime Minister David Cameron is due to be flying out of Italy - where he was in the second week of his holiday in Tuscany - at 0300 GMT on Tuesday, Downing Street says.

The source says Mr Cameron had now decided to return because: "The situation has become more serious".



Return to Italy...............

Huge corporations are increasing prices on essentials like food and electric despite reporting gigantic profits, all as we are having our throats cut by harsh cuts yet the government do nothing to stop them or help us. So carry on looting I say.

My gf just told me that they had Sky footage of the looting showing Currys wrecked, Jessops wrecked, Waterstones untouched. Obviously they don't know the value of a good read

You can tell what sort of people are causing the problems when they hit JD Sports and Lidl for Reebok classics and 2L of Cider. On my way home through the carnage I even saw them hitting the Payday Loan shop....

Total scum, the lot of them!

"The kids aren't stupid, they realise the basic inequality of life in the naughties. Nepotism rules and reaching your potential is dependent on how much money your parents have and who your class mates are. Social mobility is virtually zero, unless you can kick a football half straight, the loss of free higher education, larger class sizes and the decimation of youth services sends the message, we don't give a # about you, so why should they give a # about society. Working class kids have bugger all chance to ever owning their own homes or having any choices... rich get richer, poor get shat on by middle class white males holding all the power.... they are right. there is no point; the odds are stacked against them, opportunities are bought not earned, no wonder they're all off their heads on cheap booze and meow meow" - A friend of mine
