The london Riots.. and some bigger news

Oh MY GOD! some kids have decided to join together and rob some shops in London....

Well, how dare they do that, say the kids in the north of england and the midlands. We will do it too. Did you hear they set fire to a shop, we should burn some shops too! It will show them who is boss.

Where does it end?

Some dick in Birmingham (Midlands - mid england) has been a total fuckwad and driven in to three (history degree - if a number is under 20 always write it in words I am told under the harvard convention lol) people and killed them.

I ask you, if it were to take place in the US of A how would you respond?



(I have a new fish tank, pics on way)

MOST IMPORTANTLY

How are you all?

This probably wouldn't last too long because people in cities, particularly shopkeepers and criminals, have guns. So there would be a lot more murders but it would die down pretty quick.

Yep. Especially the criminally minded, which seem to be the main type you're dealing with.

It depends on where a riot were to break out and how many people were involved. But for the most part, what Bleed Black said.

Actually, the -ize is the correct Oxford spelling. I can't stand that French -ise crap.

I suppose you realize that you are wrong now. Please don't take offence. I didn't mean to be offensive.

Aren't there already "flash mobs" attacking people/looting at random somewhere in the US?

Is that intended to be a counterpoint to the assertion that riots like those in London wouldn't last in the US?

Re: The london Riots.. and some bigger news

200 Londoners riots over the death of a man shot by the police - riot police resotred order in 1 week and 5 people die
100,000 Vancoverians riot over the loss of a hockey game - riot police put the riot down in 1 night and no one gets killed

Is it just me or does British police suck at crowd control

It was a wee tad more than 200. and not just in London.

Point stands though.

OR Vancoverians suck at rioting.

Re: The london Riots.. and some bigger news

They were out on a "public order" protest control type order so they were trying to box imaginary protestors instead of arresting people for nicking things. Their excuse is they lost some experienced officers over phone hacking but its ok theyre hiring Bill Bratton US supercop to fix things cause hes done a great job of stopping violence in America
