Megafanx13 and thisispain, why are you both so dense? My head hurts from reading your comments.
People are saying there was more black people involved in the riots. That a fucking fact. Jeez.
It's not in a racist way either.
Please stop with racism bullshit now people. We're just going round in circles.
"Racism" today is total bullshit, everybody thinks everything is too racist, even I think its bullshit and I'm a minority myself.
Britain has the BNP. America has the Tea Party.
I don't normally go on Facebook but...
Dunno about the UK, but in my country they shoot rioters with rubber bullets (which hurt a fuckton, by the way). This way the riot ends within the hour.
Here, this is how we deal with riots:
So they've started evicting people convicted of looting if they live in council houses.
Bearing in mind, if theres a mother, daughter and a son living in the same flat, and the son was the only one convicted of looting all are evicted. Theres also talk of them losing their benefit payments.
Thus the poor get poorer and homeless to boot.
And I know i'm late on this but I've heard everyone talking about the comparisons of the Arab Spring and the August Riots. Use of technology in the Arab Spring as a whole was very sparse and infact it was used as a tool by the regimes for intelligence.
Though it is the daily mail. So I'll take everything with a pinch of salt
Community service for everyone pretty much. Maybe it will solve problems, but when I was 16 (and if I had to do it now too) I wouldn't have cared about it and would have put in the least amount of effort to get through it without causing a problem for myself.
No one would want to partake in 'national service'.
Also as for this community "national service" stuff, Cameron was pushing for it when he first got elected but no one liked the idea, with it being optional.
It seems that he is just using the riots as an excuse to push for it, maybe it will make a difference only time would tell to be honest.
im saying it because i don't want to go out of my house at night and get mugged, this might help keep those kinds of crime down...
Plus I like how you ignore the part where he says he's going to take away the Human Rights Act, replacing it with something that nobody knows anything about.
Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't it Cameron who suggested withdrawing from the EU human rights laws?
If you read the article it says the national service will be voluntary and tells you what it involves.
Disabled cripples are the worst kind!
PEOPLE WANT THEM EVICTED.
Er yeah ok we better evict them.
TAKE AWAY THEIR BENEFITS.
Oh ok yeah lets do that to.
They were talking about it on BBC radio 2 earlier. Virtually every political commentator says that the government haven't thought this through enough.
So you evict a family of 4 which had 1 member join in the riots, despite the fact the council have a duty to keep families off the street.
Their only option is to move to another county and apply for the housing list there, even then it'll be a while on the streets before they get anywhere.
See? The police use their batons on looters and now its the police who are the bad guys.
Imagine what would've happened if they had rubber bullets.
Also ew Daily Mail.
Also that kid deserved getting his ass beat.
More like 'My son got caught looting and the police set him straight. Maybe if I call police brutality enough people will see us as the victims.'
In don't think any of these knee jerk reactions they've come up with are any good at all. Some are more shit than others though.
I don't know what I would do instead, but I haven't asked for people to vote for me to run the country.
