    I can't believe that there is not a thread about this. Since saturday, there has been mass looting, burning of buildings and cars, and injuries of police officers.

    More Violence In London And Now Birmingham - Yahoo!
    BBC News - Home
    Sky News, First for Breaking News, Latest News and Video News from the UK and around the World
    In pictures: London riots Photos | In pictures: London riots Pictures - Yahoo!

    This is just disgraceful' thugary and I can't believe that there is no thread of this yet. This far more concerning the USA debt problems.

    What do you think of this?

    I have to wonder if any of the people doing the rioting actually care about the issue that started them in the first place.

    I am actually sitting here watching parts of my home town burn, I pass the bits of croydon that are alight at least 5 days a week.

    I can promice you all these riots have nothing to do with the guy that got shot, weather he was guilty or not they were damn fools to have a rememberance walk in that area at that time of day, it was clear what would happen. Everything beyond that is people jumping on the bandwagon and mob rule.

    Its the fact there are kids out there doing this, some of them have to be under ten, its just sick.

    Its going to hit everywhere I fear, Reeve corner was the shop they burn, it had been there over 100 years, it was fantastic looking, lots of odd mixs of building styles where it had been added on to over the years, it had real charicter, they can never replace that, its a great loss.

    I hate hearing about old historical buildings being destroyed. But I heard this morning the guy who was killed by the cops was a gang leader.

    It's hit Woolwich, just down the road from me. All this because the police did their job. Ridiculous.

    I hope everyone down south are okay. It's people like these (as well as others) that make me regret being part of the same species. :(

    If the guy who got shot was a gangster, what are people kicking up a fuss about?
