Just to stress this is not the Arab spring. This is uncontrolled yobbery. Plus they are destroying the homes and employment of other ordinary working class folks. Saw footage, get this, of them queuing to loot a store. So very British! This needs nipping in the bud. Get the army in, I'm all for it.

The whole point of your thread was that this was NOT being aired on the news. I and a few other have clearly stated it was. Therefore you started a thread which was a blatant lie. It's only redeeming quality is the fact other ATS members have ignored that fact and have made it their own. Might I suggest you concentrate on THAT thread instead of this blatant idiocy you are displaying.

live stream to back up the op, www.bbc.co.uk...

this isnt good at all, and poised to go on much longer unless people help stop it.
you cant just rely on the police, people have to stand up too

edit to add-listen now, every so often they blame twitter and texting etc. i think they are going to want to cut the net if this keeps up. its very possible, i think

Unfortunately the best I can do is Twitter since I am in the US.

Just go to Twitter, you do not have to log in, and type in #Birmingham. That is all you have to do and results for the rioting/looting will show up.

The Hackney Riots maybe out of Stylenoir’s normal reporting but to be honest with you the journalist side of me kicked in and begged me to go report the truth, since there was so many distorted hype created on Twitter.

We wanted to find out why society was rebelling and how. Stylenoir was frontline for most of the Hackney Riots and I implore you, listen to us, for this is the truth, the valiant account of what really went down.

All rioters were there solely for their own gain. Forget what you’ve heard, this wasn’t for a cause, this wasn’t for society or even because of social media. This was just pure aggression and monetary gain. We overheard so many rioters conversations “Tottenham aint got nothing on us” one said, another “we’re gunna loot till we drop”. This was backed up by what looked like an 11 year old child running away with a plasma TV at one point, which was possibly the most surreal thing I’ve ever seen.

Here in the US we have other ways of dealing with riots if the police can not handle the problem.
1992 Los Angeles Riots
www.ar15.com...&page=2
cdtactical.com...
lapd.com...
www.occidentalism.org...

During this riot over 1500 rioters were shot by armed civilians.
The cops never collected any bullets for ballistics and no civilians were ever charged for protecting there property.

There has been no riots in Los Angeles since.
