London's burning
« on: August 09, 2011, 05:05:51 am »
I don 't know if most of you are aware what's been happening in England or at least in london in the past 24 hours but the term Anarchy reigns definatly apply.

People have been rioting looting and worst burning shops and people's houses, even Sony got caught up in this.

And apparently its going to get worse. The police have done nothing to stop any of this, at least in america they have the right idea by shooting first and ask questions later.

BBC describes the rioters as 'youths representative of the local community'.

I am sure everyone knows what they really are. Political Correctness' rot is at its end now.

It's a little more complicated than that... When I saw many of the people involved in the looting, it's not an issue of race, nor belief, it's pure and simple entiltlement mentality at work.

And it is scary as heck...

No, it is an issue of ungrateful foreigners literally burning, looting, and pillaging the capital. It should be considered a military affair at this point as it has gone beyond a simple riot. People are literally engaged in combat outside their shops with iron bars as hordes of thieves try to sack their shops.

Ultimately it is the fault of those who created the situation to begin with (multicultural liberals, socialist/Marxists, and conservatives), so it is not entirely the fault of foreigners there, but they have to take responsibility for their actions. If the police are unable to deal with it as seems apparent at the moment, then I doubt the trio of misfit ideologies running the country will be able to maintain their position. Even the most ignorant pleb can see exactly what is happening anywhere in the world. They cannot hide it with misleading words and diverting attention any more.

As max_cady said, the whole situation is quite scary. A mod mentality with this much violence and destruction in it is a truly frightening thing for anyone caught in it's wake. I hope this ends soon, I really don't want anymore innocent people hurt.

This is what my initial reaction was:

Then I realised how desensitized I've been to tragic events, this will hopefully end for you guys in England.

My country probably won't recover, i'll be migrating to states in 2 weeks.

Oh god lets not turn this into a thing about America... All he ment was that here the police are stretched thin and are not taking the right kind of action because Cameron wants to uphold the long running trend of the police not using extreme force.

The problem is that the times have changed and we now need to bring in the rubber bullets, tear gas and water cannons. I know the police are frustrated with it, they have to stand around and take abuse they shouldn't have to from dirty little yobs. It's not political either, most of them are just opportunists trying to loot and cause drama. It's shitty spoiled teenagers that live in one of the easiest places in the world to live and expect things to be handed to them on a silver platter.

We don't need the army as some people have suggested we just need to give the police the go ahead to use the right equipment for the job.

I don't agree with what Kogen is saying and I don't think race is the reason for this at all, but I would say it is about time we closed the boarders and put some strict clamp down on the immigration into this country.

The scenes reminded me of the movie 'Children of Men' one of the best movies ever made I think... Really awesome;

The UK isn't alone in the immigration issue, it's about time most of the west started clamping down on it.

Mod edit: Joking or not, do not post racial slurs like that.

In a nutshell: Some black guy got shot by the police,the police said he shot at them first but it turned out he never fired a shot.But he did have a gun. The family went to the police station to demand answers after finding out that he died from the local news. The police refused to see the family. The family went home. But by this time a crowd of people had gathered outside the street and decided to riot after the police apparently knocked down a teenage girl. It then spread to other nearby areas just as depressed as tottenham was IE ghettos. it then spread to more affluent areas. But it now turns out that the riots were orchastrated because people were using Blueberry to inform eachother where they were going to hit next. now its spread to other deprived areas outsider london. And no the people rioting are not immirgrants but are english born and a combination of black and white and most likely poor and underage which is what makes this thing a bit scary. news reports indicate that kids from the age of 7 to 25 are looting and attacking police and commiting arson.
It seems that the london gangs who model themselves after the black american gangs basically started the riots and people who aren't necessarly gang members joined in on the bandwagon when shops started to get looted.

Good, because the imcopetent prime minister and his useless cronies should be kicked out of goverment after this fiasco. All of them were on holiday when this crisis started and that was after another crisis in the economy had reared its head but none of them could be bothered to return, even the deputy PM whose whole point of being in that position is to run the country when the leader is out ofn the country. As Sharky stated the PM wanted to cut the police which he did before these riots started. What do they do they then bring in police from manchester to bulk up the numbers and the next thing you know they started to riot in manchester and the police up there are unable to deal with it. If this affects the economy like its done with the England football match which has been cancelled then good as long as the people in power loses their jobs at the end of it.

Mod edit: removed racial slurs

But on a serious note, I am not sure what you even mean. How does this involve other continents?

Reports I have seen describe him as a violent, criminal drug dealer who attacked or threatened police with a gun, which they then fought back as anyone sane would. The man was a known criminal and a threat to society with no regard for the well being of others, so I doubt anyone outside his family feels sorry for him.
