Nope, you called someone a racist for saying it was non whites.

If it was a real protest then theyd have done it outside police stations, not throwing bricks through the nearest currys and running off with anything they can carry.

He was correct but it wasnt PC enough for you.


Lol And you clearly didn't read beyond the first sentence of my post towards him. I'm done talking to you.

The riots in the past have no baring on these riots. They are ethnic groups not protesting about anything but seeing it as a chance to vandalise and steal some free goods.

Thats a fact.
It's not exclusive to ethnic groups, it's an entire disaffected generation of young misguided people.


Don't bother explaining anything rationally to that guy, he doesn't get it.
You're totally right though.

Reports are in citing an increase of police personnel on the streets of Carlisle, Dublin, Dundee and Humberside as a result of panic in the streets of London. Nationwide, discos are closing down for fear of being burnt down - allegedly due to them playing music that says nothing about the rioter's lives - whilst DJ's flee in their hundreds under the threat of being hung

Where I live (Birmingham, Hockley), is an area with high level of crime. It's dead centre of Birmingham...So I'm pretty close to the city centre, where several stores have been vandalised & looted.

Idiots are using these riots as an excuse to try & attack any shop, even if it has nothing to do with police.

I live couple minutes away from Handsworth, which is well known in the city for high level of crime & as always, ones of the first areas to respond to any sort of riots...Police stations, hospitals being set alight...Soho Road (a busy stretch of road filled with people & shops everyday) is now under attack.

I normally hear police sirens & helicopters from my bedroom window, but tonight sounds much more intense than usual.

I'll post any sort of updates if something happens overnight...Hopefully everything will have calmed down by tomorrow...

1. No local news about anything in Leeds or Bradford - let's not make this seem worse than it is.

2. Whoever suggested all the trouble is down to 'blacks', I wonder if your prejudices are showing? Actually, the hoodies and other clothes being worn make it hard to tell anything useful, but thuggery and looting are usually pretty much equal opportunity activities here in the UK.


Unless your heads in the sand this issue kicked off over a black man benig murdered , followed by an alteracation between a black girl and a police officer during the protest over the murder of the black man.

So here we have the reason and motive for the riots which all centers around the black community.

When white people protest we dont loot and scoot, look at the previous public disorder surrounding white citizens, we may break a few windows but we sure as hell dont steal or burn building to the ground.


Plenty of looting in the Burnley riots


Yeah BUT PLENTY more whenever the Black young 'affected' youths start trouble........................

Put them on a boat.....mid atlantic and sink it !!

Why hasn't TPTB made a decision what to do to stop these thieving mobs. It's terrible that looters are sweeping the country, picking the shops clean and robbing people in their homes as they go.

I have never had nor wanted a gun in my house - I live alone and I certainly wish I had one now, just in case.

Innocent citizens living in the vicinity of these riots must be so scared, they need protecting from these rampaging heathens.


I'm in rural Derbyshire......... i come and help if required..

I dont know mate sorry, they've just said manchester on the news. My mate (who earlier was told by a police man that it is in london, manchester, liverpool and leeds) has also informed me that a cinema has been taken over in bloxwich. His been right with 3 of the cities so far, so worth keeping an eye out for that one.

Hope I'm wrong.

Stay safe people.

Good lord, the whole of England is kicking off if this is true, and Cardiff?

Hope everyone stays safe.

Hearing personal reports on Sky from people who have friends whom have been beating up in business premises. Its going way beyond, over the killing of one individual.
