Sorry I didn't read all 77 pages to realize that a comment was already made regarding guns. And while I agree that some of your thugs would have guns, so would your home and business owners. At the end of the day, I would prefer to be able to defend myself. Plus most thugs spend little time at the shooting range, and are horrible shots. While most of the responsible gun owners I know, myself included, spend time learning how to shoot so if in a situation which requires a gun arises, we would be able to actually shoot with accuracy.


Guns aren't needed to protect businesses.

If you read the thread you'll see reports of the Turkish business community and their families doing a fine job of defending their businesses with bats and other weapons.

No.

To put this in perspective. Nobody has died yet.

Yet, a single altercation in a petrol station in America - 8 people died.

Britain can invade Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya but can't control her kids when they're in school holidays .

Kinda ironic !

There isn't a conspiracy behind this.

These are just mindless thugs lashing out at the society they feel has mistreated them.

If anyone like me lives around or between clapham and croydon, I think it's best to stay inside, I've seen the crazy things happening, and my brother just came from clapham with plenty of crazy video footage of things happening there, someone close to me who is 15 years old was involved with all his friends, everyone is tempted to join in on the mass theft and vandalism, because it's so easy to just think, "it's all gonna get stolen anyway, I might as well get some stuff quickly then", it feels like everyone is getting involved which is really shameful.

Someone told me he just saw three guys beat up a girl because they were fighting over some clothing, he said it was like a horror movie.

The thing is right now even with the riots it's not THAT dangerous outside, because it's mostly just theft, but tomorrow it can go either way, it might calm down or it might get much worse, which means more violence towards each other and police. So stay safe guys.

I've been saying for years that the british people will only take so much. The world sees us as mild mannered, civilized people. In general, we are historically a passionate, warrior race and it's only recent history that has seen us living in relevant peace. This is why there is violence. We have been violent for generations and don't know how to deal with peace. I say bring back conscription to the army. I am 29 years old in case anyone says that that's old people thinking.

That's what they all say till they get burned out and/or otherwise get the fear of God thrown into them.

You should at least get a few hundred attack dogs to set loose along with the riot cops, the dogs would run more down and make a good showing in the arrest category, also take the cockyness out of the pimple faced looters. Something mean with teeth, you Brits aren't against that too are you?


No of course not, and dogs have been deployed. But we are very heavy on animal welfare in this country (for the most part) and as you know have a far smaller population and therefore police force than America. So dogs have been deployed but there arn't enough of them to be everywhere.

Also, it's possible they were all deployed during the day and may have been taken back to rest now to be deployed again tomorrow.

I have to say that I'm impressed that you used the words ''teeth'' and ''Brits'' in the same sentence, without the ubiquitously unfunny reference to our supposed dental standards.

Get the Prime Minister to threaten to cancel welfare unless the riots stop.

Problem solved. Peace in the UK.

I think given what time it is, you won't see trouble spread to new areas.

However, if today starts as yesterday started, the potential for the violence and looting to spread is massive.

With violence in Liverpool and MAnchester kids in the rest of the North will want to get in on it and try to outdo each other.

Hopefully it rains. Put HAARP to good use

Not really, these thugs are gutless so guns would be perfect for them and there would be hundreds dead on both side.

All you need is a baseball bat or knife and they wont come near you. Guns would have made it 100 times worse.
