    Its no longer Tottenham riots its now London riots. TBH if you think its all about police and oppressed youths your sadly mistaken, its about F'ALL now and they are targeting more than just the police as evident with the looting and vandalism.

    Let the police dugs loose get these fucking idiots vanned.

    Inevitable really.
    If only they had some direction so it could be a motivational thing as opposed to be just robbing for today fack tomorrow.
    If they claimed the robbing and pillaging was in the face of tax increase without cost of living increases parrallel.

    If they asked for the recent tax increase to be frozen so they could actually stand a chance of surviving in all legitimacy,
    then they wouldn't be so easy to write off and the media could then get behind them instead of villifying(spelling?) them as brainless thugs /t'ugs yagetme nuh starr....

    Instead its just going to end in shackles chains and the perfect excuse for more surveilance cameras everywhere.

    I hope i don't come across as a conspiracy theorist,anarchaist or whatever it's just silly to write people off for acting in the moment without knowing the full details.You can't make an informed decision without full knowledge.

    Honestly guys our government,we send armies to different countries to "control" their riot or help them. They can't even control their own citizens riot.

    People should not steal or trash up places just as a form of protest. Does it really make sense to loot from innocent people and trash up random properties? Buses! Why attack a bus?

    Im all for protests and demonstrations, sit ins that sort of thing because yeah violence solves everything doesn't it?!

    In this case they are all brainless thugs infact fuck it id be glad to call anyone who riots a brainless thug there is no need for it. A revolt targets things to gain an upper hand, a revolution has people at its head, if people want to revolt they need to pick proper targets rather than being random. What am i saying its a bunch of wee fanny that think they can go around looting taking advantage of a situation.

    If they tried to step in and quell the rioters it would be heavy handed, they do nothing and the riots continue and people say they are useless.

    The police can never win.

    Id just go in and bang em all in the vans, call in neighbouring police to help. Think about how to punish them all later just get them off the streets right now.

    I'm glad there arent any riots around my part of london. Innocent bystanders (shop and house owners) are taking the heat for what seems to me to be just a load of opportunistic looting. Nothing to do with politics, or protesting. For god sake the guy had a (replica?) gun he looked dangerous what can you do?

    Here's hoping the riots calm down. Though looking at the news today at work it doesn't look like its over.

    Maybe it does have a lesson to teach in terms of disaffected youth and lack of opportunities in some parts of London though. Let's hope the economy stays (relatively) strong and we don't get a downwards spiral here.

    carnival is going to be nothing short of chaos,never mind the 3 youths throwing stuff that got hyped into a riot the year before last...
    When the police claim the guy shot one of them and its found the shot copper had a police bullet sunk into his radio,its going to do nothing but fuel the already plentiful hatred.

    Your right supposedly they found a gun at the scene and a copper was shot and it hit his radio. Still i think they will hold back on the details till this calms down.
    Are they still rioting?

    I was just saying to Kuro that they should hold demonstrations and protests on the isle of white so that if any shit goes down they just stop the ferry home and people are stuck on the island lol. Why is it all these protests and demonstrations that happen in London end up into riots?

    yea its spreading across to hackney,one of the worst places really.
    Ironically hackney has the worst gun crime in london.


    because london has alot of latent racism and pent up hatred.and loneliness.and broken dreams.
    peer pressure too,it's really hard to do well in the "inner city" schools.league tables for most '07 numbers are pretty weak.

    assuming your over greenwich sides,you will be fine.
    i reckon it will die down before it reaches deptford,bermondsey etc there is a stronger white contingent so i reckon there the ones with travelcards going free shopping.
    Parisians have the right idea.

    Pardon my language...

    but the motherfuckers finally got the power back up.

    Why the fuck must local residents get punished by having their electricity turned off for ALMOST 2 WHOLE FREAKIN' DAYS. when we werent the ones that were out there starting the fires, attacking policemen and looting the shops?

    assholes turned the electricity off for the whole goddamn street while they wanted to isolate and disconnect the buildings that had been completely raised to the ground from the grid.

    I was starting to panic man! Almost took my cyanide pill!

    they turned it off YESTERDAY. but T.N.G (The National Grid) didnt have a emergency response tech team to send out as it was the weekend. so in reality there was no reason to turn it off other then the POLICE requesting it be turned off because it was a health and safety hazard.

    HELLO TPU!!!! ITS GREAT TO BE HERE TONIGHT!!

    No! No one else was in the house!! It was like solitary confinement. No electricity, No lights. Just a small dark room when the sun went down.
