Your authorities seem to be letting it happen.
They get out on the streets with shields and riot gear but never got physical.

All they are doing is emboldening the thugs by letting them attack the police without consequences. This thing is much worse because of these panzyass policies.

And people have been injured and will die because it is allowed to extend like this. You think nobody lives in the flats above and next to these burning buildings?

The sheer fear this is all causing will be the end of these foolish liberal policies.
We'll be selling you guys guns soon faster than we can put them on the boats.


Yes, this is disgusting, but it is the fault of the media and not hte police. In our last riots a man died after an isolated incident involving the police. Following this the media took the stance that the police and been far to heavy handed in dealing with the rioters.

This is the result, policeman who are scared they will lose their jobs if they intervene. Last riots we had, those charges ended with batons swinging. Again it is the fault of the media, not the police that it is not happening this time. Public opinion was turned against them.

Also, we have plenty of riots, we always have...check out the poll tax riots and how violent they got...we havn't asked for your guns yet. Because we learnt first hand what happens when certain Americans (and others) help people get guns in our cities. Northern Ireland.

Sorry mate, but it is no way the fault of the media when a policeman decides to kill an innocent guy who is on his way home from work. It is not the media's fault that this cop got caught on video killing the guy, and it's not the media's fault that the police guy couldn't get off free of charge by closing ranks with his colleagues and lying. No.

That's sh*t of the police's own making and no one else's fault. It's wrong to kill innocent civilians whether you're wearing a uniform or not. Public opinion will always be against this because oddly enough the public doesn't like the idea that police officers can kill them in 'isolated incidents' and get off without facing prosecution.

the mobile phones, are one of ultimate weapon's on this kind of movement's. to stop the gathering they have to stop mobile phones in londons area...i dont how they could do that, but it could have also, major issues to others national interests and security....

all this is ambiguos...we dont know true origin of the movement.. but they are weel organize, because we can see the police back down with few element's, and facing suprise.. this is coordinate from outside.

No sorry, you have misunderstood what I meant. Yes it was entirely his fault and he deserved to be called out on it. But it was an isolated incident and the majority of the police did not act like this, however it was focused upon so much along with other accounts of the police acting too heavily, that this time around the police are scared to act.


I was in no way trying to give an excuse for the officer. But the reaction to it painting all of the riot police on that day as acting to harsh...has led to a more nervous police force.

It's gone insane!!! IMO the police should have stopped this instantly when it first began. Surely they train for situations like this. The fact that it's been allowed to escalate to this insane degree is exactly what's helping it spread. The youths are watching others helping themselves to whatever they choose and get away with it. They are watching the police stand by, knowing they are outnumbered and are to quote the reporter on the bbc before "completely helpless" and that's why they are starting it elsewhere. Getting one over on the police will be a huge incentive.

As for the looting in London, Carphone warehouse, get it. Argos,get it. Wimpy, hungry ??

Seriously though this is scary stuff. When will it end ?

It was a peaceful protest, it turned nasty, the thugs and criminals saw how easily overwhelmed the Police were.

So on Sunday they all came out and started rioting and looting and attacking police. And on Monday(yesterday, technically) the same happened, but in far more areas.

Now thugs and criminals across their country are seeing this on TV and trying their luck. There's been riots in Birmingham and a police station set on fire(very far from London) and riots now reported in Liverpool(even further from London)

If the Police don't get a grip the entire country could descend into similar scenes

BBC news 24 are reporting of groups smashing windows in Toxteth Liverpool 8.
Many will know that Toxteth was prominent in the riots of the 80s.
Merseyside Police say cars have been set on fire shops being looted.and disturbances in South Liverpool-no links as yet as braeaking live.
I was there recently and know Toxteth well as dont live far away-following the riots of the Thatcher years,Toxteth was transformed and given lots of money and attention-I hope we wont see all that undone.
