    A little bit no videogames for you all weekend.

    Videogames you probably got from the looting.

    It's kind of a shame that no one's been seriously injured yet.
    I know it's a terrible thing to wish death/destruction on others, but someone, preferably another rioter, getting badly hurt because of the riots (IE not police action) would stop it being so much of a game to all the dumb kids breaking shit for laughs.

    I doubt it, the American people seem more reserved. Britain just seems to be full of these "do what you like" kind of people.

    What are LRADs? I am usually good with acronyms but that one has me stumped.
    Might want to turn down your volume a bit.

    Basically shoots a beam of really loud noise.

    The last time they were used, they didn't leave the province for 40 years and hundreds if not thousands were killed on both sides. I won't pretend the situation is the same but if the British army is sent to london, People Will Die.
    A LOT has changed since then. Don't even try and suggest otherwise. The British army is trained in crowd and riot control without the use of weapons. In other words. Doing the exact same thing that the riot police are doing right now. Send in a thousand soldiers, and this whole thing would settle down quite quickly.

    Where they'd get the equipment for that with the cuts is another issue

    Someone was non-fatally shot in Croydon, and not by the police.

    That is an amazing idea, combined that with that noise only people under the age of 25 can hear and problem solved instantly.

    Not used in England. There's a massive fire in enfield, it's a sony warehouse. http://www.steven-kelly.co.uk/photog...ield-direction

    The government are not going to take this seriously until someone is killed.

    No tear gas either, the UK does not have riot control equipment that seems to be standard everywhere else in the world.

    A little bit of tear gas would have dispersed the crowds hours ago.
    UK Police are equipped with CS gas, which is a form of tear gas, so I'm not sure where you're getting that from. Also, if water cannons can be used in Northern Ireland then I don't see a legal reason why they can't be used on the mainland - it's most likely more of a case that we don't have any except in Ireland.

    I also doubt that the Army will be called in. More likely is the government bringing in Police Support Units (aka specialist riot police) from the various police forces around the country to get more feet on the ground, and it's not unreasonable that they may loan water cannons from the police in Northern Ireland.

    No, not out of one of those at this time...Honestly, even being near one for a few seconds kills my head because of people using them near us.

    It's a focused beam of sounds so if you're standing behind it it's not going to be very loud. They can use it as a loud speaker and talk through it or just project a variety of annoying sounds at rioters.

    So am I really the only one that sees something Wrong with sending any army onto their own streets, for any reason? It would be the first small step down a road just as dark as these riots.

    We don't need the army to actually do anything. Just showing up would be enough to scare the shit out of the majority of them.
