I have been following facebook and twitter and yeah, believe it or not, people actually want the army in, a curfew brought in and the protesters to be round up and shot! Some of them seem to stereotyping blacks or blaming multi culturism.
But I guess this is what happens when people have been brainwashed by the mainstream media since they were born.
Ironic that 8/8 is kinda the black community version of 7/7...
This was defo a false flag...and it has succeeded triumphantly. Ofcourse, now the riots are just being carried out by idiots and opportunists...

Really? So Arthur Scargill documented the miners’ strike on his iphone did he?
Maybe things don’t seem much different to you but for those of us not living under a rock with a tinfoil hat covering our ears they’ve changed quite a bit.
Come up with some evidence and then you can call this a false flag.
Lots of teens carry Blackberrys, it's the phone of choice for most of the country, especially the younger generation.
The rioters and looters used Twitter and Facebook but prefer Blackberry Messenger because it's allegedly hard to trace.
Now, that may be true (cause they want to) but i choose to believe it is more likely because they are being encouraged. As for the police being "out of their league" -> that's because this game isn't occurring on their field of play. They are the 'watchers' in this game, not the enforcers ... that game is reserved for folk like us.
Having read posts on ATS and seen rioting and looting not only on tv but spreading across the country to other cities and even to the town I live in, it's clear that those doing it are only rioting and looting because they want to. The police are way out of their depth with so many mainly teens and 20 something year olds taking whatever they like for the hell of it.
Don't even attempt to call me disinfo or something because you're not here and you don't know any of them either. You just see something and your ridiculous way of thinking sees everything as government conspiracy even when it's actually simple to explain as just idiots running riot because they choose to, not because the government paid them to as you seem to suggest.edit on 9/8/2011 by curious7 because: (no reason given)

source please because i've heard very different information ... in the US, Blackberrys are generally held by adult consumers and many UK connections have confirmed similar there.
first, i can and will offer any opinion and make any declaration i choose, with or without supporting evidence ... it's called Free Speech ... and i thoroughly enjoy it.
It might be pin-striped City boys that were BlackBerry’s early adopters, but it is the pink finger nailed youths attached to their equally pink and sparkly Blackberries that are the accidental target audience that catapulted RIM’s device out of the boardroom and on to the streets. They are the champions of BlackBerry Messenger, or BBM in the language of the young, who latched onto the free service and now use it in lieu of text messaging. It is even now a deciding purchase factor for many young people, with mobile phone retailers heavily advertising the feature.
