    Do you want me to perform a census in Tottenham as we speak? The DRC, Iraq, various tinpot nations in the Carribean and so on.
    I would ask for a source, but I'm afraid that's impossible now.

    Edited:

    Not rubber bullets but I think they should use plastic 6mm .2gram BB's.

    They hurt from a distance and they hurt like crap in clothing.
    I would not condone using more penetrating bullets for this situation.

    Edited:

    Thank god. Police are gonna publish images of the scum.
    Why is this good?

    It's obvious that paintball guns are the answer, possibly filled with the ink that doesn't come off for a solid week

    Given that the riots are spreading, I think there's quite a decent reason to be worried.

    Geography's terrible.
    I just checked though and it's more like 7-8.
    My small town and Kingston has a lot of chavs though which worries me.

    And then the person with smartwater on his clothes said it was collateral from the person next to him getting shot and the case is gone

    Holy shit. There are a LOT of people doing this. According to people phoning in the BBC, the police are nowhere near Clapham. Makes you wonder if they're being spread too thin.

    I just went to have a look on Facebook and it seems the people I have on there also have common sense. Complete hatred towards the riots.

    I was gonna say I'm surprised there were riots in Scotland and then I saw it was Glasgow. Welp as long as the riots don't spread East into Kirkcaldy I think I'll be fine.

    I was thinking of direct distance not road distance, which I now see is ~7 miles (I'm shit at geography).
    It still worries me seeing all my friends who live in Croydon, Bromley, etc being caught in the middle of it.

    The one in Glasgow is a false one, its someone talking about the G20 protests which I assume is also a Glasgow postcode.

    To put it bluntly, they're happy enough using water-cannons, rubber bullets, tear gas and the like in Belfast, but as soon as it comes to London it suddenly becomes "excessive" and the like.
    It's fucking stupid - it's the UNITED kingdom, why police different areas in different fashions?
