In small numbers you're right, it would be hard to speak up. So if this is truly an organized thing that isn't going away, then people need to form neighborhood committees, and especially people who want to enjoy going out to a club or restaurant or event at night, and start taking action, both in terms of phoning the police, and notifying elected officials, and start to video tape this, and have strong verbal responses back.
I don't think its going away. And it would be hard to speak up alone.
The officials already know about it. Video taping will do no good. They already have CCTV cameras all over the UK. They can probably already watch what is going on in real time. But they refuse to do anything.
There is a reason.
They are intimidated in the same way the local people are. They know that if they crack down in any way, then the section of the population in question will riot and burn everything down. Look at what happened in France. That is what will happen in the UK if they tried to crack down.
They know that a good portion of that religious community will go militaristic on the order of their religious leaders. That basically means the religious leaders in question have a noose around the neck of the UK. And the UK government knows it, so they are well behaved.
Remember, that religion controls through intimidation.
And also remember. The only reason the rioters in France did not turn to guns in mass is because the local authorities did not take up guns to try and control them, not because the rioters were not armed. In the few places the police did put up a fight, the rioters quickly engaged them with guns and the police retreated.
The groups in the UK are also armed. Heavily armed. The government knows it. If violence starts, then the police will be outgunned if they try to control it. And the police know it. If the police try to engage them with firepower, then the group in question will quickly pull out their AK47s and RPGs that they almost definitely have hidden away, and put the police in their place. So the police just leave it alone and try to pretend the problem is not there. Because they know they are not equipped to deal with it.
