Sums it up
This is why I like CupOfTeam. They mostly do comedy but they also do stuff like this
"Police at the scene of the Croydon disturbances are investigating a "non-fatal" shooting, according to a source.
No more details are immediately available"
This was bound to happen eventually.
I fucking hope they don't torch Clapham Junction, that's just down the road from me. :/
The BBC reporter mentioned looting near Tower Bridge.
Oh wow one of the BBC teams in Croydon got attacked.
He was just now talking to him on the phone before he got cut off suddenly.
The accounts the BBC are getting all say that the police that do arrive on the scene are there in such few numbers that theres no way they can control anything.
Times like these, I wish I had a firearm to protect myself.
It appears that some of my friends on facebook have lost their minds and instead of blaming morons that started this one of them quite oddly decided to say they have no idea what's going on then went onto ranting about the government.
They got a shop owner on the line who has his shop burned.
He said they should just start shooting the looters.
Ah sorry i was misinformed.
I think after this they're gonna try and loot westfield.
It seems the fire engines that drove up to the furniture shop had to go away from it because it was too intense to put out. So sad.
Well that's better.
im 2 minutes away from ealing broadway. dunno whats gonna happen
Oh it is their reporter in Croydon. I just realised who he was when he said his name, he is one of the BBC London reporters.

Everyone ok apparently.
Clip from the Sky news reporter that was in Clapham before the broadcast team turned up it seems.
The BBC's reporter team in Croydon have just gotten out of there. They said they saw a couple police vans going into Croydon on their way out but nothing bigger than that.
They also mention 'Shopowners trying in vain to protect their shops'.
When will they send in the army?
