For all of you who think this is not orchestrated like were led to believe on the news.....then check this out,being handed out to all the youths rioting in London.




This is just a rehash of a flyer which was put out following some rioting in Bristol earlier this year.

All they've done is change a couple of words/phrases to be relevant to the rioting in Tottenham.

I don't think it really takes that much orchestration to spend a few seconds changing these words/phrases, printing hundreds of copies out and then handing them out to people in the community.

Agreed. Overall, not a good night to be a London police officer! It will be interesting to see how the policing of future peaceful protests is performed. Perhaps after this night to remember the boys in blue might realise that the eco-warriors and social campaigners aren't such a bad bunch after all!

this is insane, i never thought id see this in england.

it seems though its all cities with parts that are in the poverty sections.

i think this is about people trying to cause trouble and just greed but i think poeple have also had enough.
the young peoplel have no prospects or chances of getting jobs and are turning to crime.
so many high end people who are beign caught commiting crimes and getting away with it. crossed with the amounts of redundancies while the bosses get bonus'.
its all comong to a head i think.
also i think the police are finding they havnt got the capability of sorting this its got to caotic.

as i said i never thought id see anything like this in britain.
i hope it doesnt move any more north from london i live just out side of south cambridge which isnt to far from london.
and the way things are going citys all across england are joining in, and as much as people think cambridge is a posh area there are a lot of pockets of slums and poverty stricken places around there.

The longer this is allowed to continue the worst it will get. A bit obvious but the police need to reign-in the situation right now.

It seems there's reports all over the country of burning cars and grouped youths. Which you imagine is true. Will be interesting though how many go further than that.

So to summarise, idiot shoots at Police, Police shoot idiot. Idiot dies but officer escaped marginally.

Now people are using this an an excuse to cause their own residents/ neighbours pain and misery!

What these people need is educating and the instalment of morals in their worthless, brainless skulls. I'm from Birmingham and they have wrecked the city centre, and for what? Justice? Balls, they were laughing and joking as they broke into places like McDonalds, Primark and Sainsbury's! Now because youth's think they have something to fight for, thousands are taking to the streets and causing millions of pounds worth of damage.

It's disgusting and exactly the reason why, when I have enough money, that I will move to a country with a future.

It isn't just black people, all creeds and colours have been looting, ranging from 11 year olds to people in their mid 20's.

Get the military on the streets and let these people see that we need business otherwise you'll start seeing vigilantes pop up resisting these spineless thugs.

Primark in Manchester on fire according to Twitter?


People are tweeting false information claiming that Primark in various parts of the country are on fire.

It must be some sad-case, who has got it in for Primark, spreading false stories !

i know what you mean but i think they haveleft it to long.
another thing i thought about, on the news they said they are bringing in 1700 police from other places to london. i know they usually bring ones from the cambridge area when they need support.
makes me wonder if the places where police are being taken from are going to be left open now to riots and a lack of police.
id be surprised if cameron does not issue a state of emergency

Aye, as bad as it may sound now, this will perhaps in the long term do some good for the police force and public. The police force can now clearly see the difference between the largely peaceful student protest and the largely violent current riots. And the whole country has seen what happens when the police don't sometimes use heavy handed tactics (whatever their reasons).Perhaps in future riots police response will therefore be better co-ordinated and much more effective.

People will laos hopefully see the increased public outraged due to the increased amount of damage and threat to lives caused this time.

Obviously it would be preferable this never happened, but maybe a small silver lining for the future at least.

The system created these people. Preservation of this system will not cure them.

It hasn't been confirmed that the "idiot" who was shot was the guilty person, or even that they found a weapon on him. This is the problem.

I'm pretty sure the Anon-types would be robbing stores, if they actually set foot outside their basements, or could tear themselves away from their anime, role-playing games and porn !
