Mate, I'm probably old enough to be your father.
Just to make my original point, THIS is why it is so wrong:
This is why it is so wrong:
Just a quick dose of reality.
A picture is worth a thousand words.
A picture like that is worth a thousand dollars.
The person taking it isn't helping, that's
i've authored a thread on how this rioting is exactly what the UK Citizenry is asking for when they let their banks, government, and corporations rob
them. So the poor are getting their fingers into it too, why the fuss now?
Aren't children being harmed by austerity in surrounding countries, as well as their own? Aren't they harmed by the trillions or quadrillions of
banker fraud? Aren't they harmed by the greedy policies of the government which does nothing but take their cut?
When anyone looks at this picture, they are angry, especially the second one. The scared confusion and loss of innocence is sickening. I understand
that is your reaction. My reaction, as someone who served in the military, was injured in the military, is that this person is taking pictures instead
of helping. No one is fighting the rioters.
For a society that has banned together against guns, you would that that when you outnumber some hoodlums a thousand to one, there would be nothing
stopping citizens from quelling the mob and arresting the perpetrators.
No, the country would rather stand int he streets gawking and uploading pictures to the internet.
That's what I see. I hope your eyes are open, because there's more to come. Much closer to home. Everyone will have to wake up, and it will probably
be to streets like this. They will have to wake up before anything changes, before anything is better.
