Injured boy mugged during disturbances in London

Footage has emerged of a group of youths helping an injured boy to his feet and then appearing to steal the contents of his bag during disturbances in London on Monday.

The boy, who was bleeding heavily, was left standing on the street, with an empty backpack.

I feel almost shell shocked after watching this.... I know that the people doing this have VERY SMALL BRAINS but to think that anyone would do this to someone? I don't even know what to write.... I just don't understand this.

I can to some extent accept that very stupid people will riot and loot while not really knowing why... But this??? I can't understand it no matter how I try to twist and warp my brain.

unfortunately this is what has become of some humans. people used to talk about us back when we would say that people will one day at like this, saying we watch too many movies. now they're asking how to stay safe. behavior like this will spread sadly, and on a worse scale. forget a group of kids, how about a group of grown men, with a group of metal bats, robbing for food.

i feel for the young man, as it's a sad situation, but maybe now he'll be able to understand that when things get real, they get real, and people will not be nice. they will pretend to help you, like they pretended to help him, and they will be all in your pockets, still leaving you to bleed out.

humans are losing their humanity.

Its wrong, yeah....some people get carried away in the big picture. Keep in mind none of these things would be happening if the government did a better job. Alot of people will join in a riot and lose humanity, but this is separate, and a wrong that follows a right. The issue at hand is very, very grey. Its not black or white, one or the other, so you cannot judge a movement by any particular situation in the big picture.
By this line of thinking, you could demand a global war to be stopped because soldiers are raping and killing innocent civilians, but that doesn't stop wars because its a part of war, and the goals of a war may be to promote peace. A couple bad apples don't reflect on your entire crop.

I find it lazy to blame all of this on the government. People are accountable to themselves, first and foremost, and while a recession does create more poverty there is simply no excuse for this kind of immoral, destructive behaviour. People need to start protecting themselves from this scum and parents need to be pointing at their TV screens and showing their children that this is simply unnacceptable, no matter what your personal situation is.

Why is anyone surprised about this?

The English, especially the youths, have a huge reputation for being "punks". Clueless, ignorant, thick-headed, foul-speaking, cruel and heartless are all words that come to mind when I think of a typical English youth.

Try not tar all young English people with the same brush. The vocal minority do not represent the well behaved majority. It is unfair to think otherwise.

Of course not. Thats why I said typical.

But honestly. London would be on my list of places to never visit, even before this roit due to the reputation of the people in the city.

Others would be:
Detroit
St Louis
New Orleans
Sao Paulo
Caracas
Cape Town
Chechnya
Ciudad Juarez

Those kinds of places...

These rioters suck at rioting, what's the point of protesting police brutality if you're hurting your own people?

If they really want a send a message, they should go to all of the police stations, raise some hell, go inside, and clash with the cops face to face. But nah, "let's go mug that kid over there! That'll show the cops!"

:shk:

Here's the video:
