    Also. Sky news was just talking to a man that had a family business since around the Victorian years and the building got burn'd down, and they couldn't say anything because they were so devastated...


    These fucking kids should show a little respect...
    This is the bit that gets to me the most.
    Fair enough if you're burning bins and shit. But when you start burning innocent people's well earned possessions it gets fucking disrespectful.

    I'm not fully for these riots, but neither am I against them. But I think when innocent people who don't want to be involved start getting their houses and cars burnt down, and even more so hurt, it gets disgusting.

    I really don't know where I stand on these riots.

    Also, inb4 curfews and shit.

    To be honest I'm morally bankrupt so I probably would loot if I was there, may as well take advantage of the situation as one person'll hardly make it worse.
    My friends already have stolen some iPods and Macbooks. Also one of my friends has a photo of tons of CD.

    Off Topic: HMV was looted but Cher Lloyds Swagger Jagger was untouched.

    This is the moment when the bus burst into flames (at least according to Twitter)

    The explosion looks so fuzzy and furry. I just wanna pet it over and over.

    I don't even fully know what the riots are about, other than something linking them to a gunman who attacked a police officer and was shot.

    Too long and smart for the Daily Mail. Also, it's nowhere near as racist as it would be for them. It'll end up something like...
    "GOLLYWOGS BLOW UP GLORIOUS LONDON"
    They could go for something simple like "NIGGERS" and and a picture of a single black rioter cropped out from a crowd

    That's how it started, then I guess it spread to a full on attack towards the government.

    Well, if it spreads down here, all I have to worry about is the large number of OAPs in the area, and a high street consisting of charity shops.

    I'm fucked...

    I was gonna go with that, but that seems like The Sun territory (See: "Gotcha" and "Did 1,200 Argies really drown?" headlines). Also, I was really paranoid of a racism ban.

    I wonder if this will spread to Liverpool.

    Then again, if it does nothing will happen except high-pitched male teens screaming "FUCKING COME ON THEN" with their bandanas over their faces, wearing their trackies and dragging around their obese pitbulls.

    I am not sure what the legality of embedding unreleased Getty images is so I will just link to it.

    Doesn't look like something you would expect from the UK at all to be honest.

    Honestly though, the police should just charge all the rioters they see and beat the shit out of them/arrest them.

    This will produce more violence, bigger rioting.

    A police constable told the London Evening Standard that the youths at the centre of the violence may have been tempted to re-enact scenes from Rockstar's controversial gaming franchise.

    What is the point? if you're mad at big business, attack the fucking HMV, what is there to gain in attacking a privately owned salon run by a local man, which hardly looks like it would have harbored anything expensive in the first place.

    If that was the case they would have 5 stars by now and would have been raped by a tank.

    You know what rumours are like, I bet it was originally "riots are only around the corner from a childrens hospital", and is now "rioters trash children hospital".

    The riots in the early 80's pretty much started there. If this has the power to spread to Birmingham I don't doubt it will.

    Which is a real shame because I'm going there tomorrow to visit family overnight :ohdear:
