The rioters/looters deserve the worst. There are a poo load of people starving in third world countries. I say they take all the chavs and dump them where they`re needed, in the middle of a ravenous population.

I`m Mancunian, which makes me proud of these policemen. (They are NOT `cops`). But I`m ashamed of the rioters.

i imagine patrols of these riot guys around the streets during the early stages of the zombie apocalypse

Anyway, I theorize that there is a lot more to it than police officers beating bikers for biking during a raid.

They start running towards the streetcornor before they even see the guys, i think they were told to proceed by radio

For all we know, the group on bikes might aswell have shot a riot officer a few blocks down

If you know sh*t is going down, stay inside. If you go out you get what you deserve.

[quote]i agree, normal people wouldnt be out in a riot. [/quote]

There wasn`t a riot going on in this area, as can clearly be seen by this video. There was rioting elsewhere, but not there.

I`ve been working until 22:30 every evening this week, in a city centre. So I`ve been walking home every night at that time. Through a city centre.

[quote]id be sitting in my house with my gun ready for some fool to come in. but these people didnt look to deserve anythign they got. maybe they were trying to get away from the riot. maybe they made a threat the the cops. who knows... still looks overboard to me.[/quote]

Looks that way to me too, from the video. I`m not fond of watching police in my country kicking and beating people who have already been knocked down and I`d want a lot of evidence to convince me that it isn`t overkill. The fact that they`re on bikes and there`s a riot somewhere in the same city isn`t anywhere near enough.

@Draculya If this was Northern Ireland they`d have used plastic bullets, water cannons and tear gas straight away. Apparently mainland UK has more rights.

Why cant they just impose a curfew... declare martial law and detain, beat, taser and/or shoot anyone looting.

They deserve worse. Only a true fool would accept or defend that these people are fighting injustice by doing injustice. There is NO cause in the mindless destruction and theft of innocent peoples property and lives. dratíng animals.

People are actually starting to die in the riots now. Three guys in birminham tried to defend their place of worship and were ran over by a rioter killing all three. Overkill? This is underkill. These riots are being done by scutters who are bored. Most people probably don;t even know why they started. And the people who do know, shouldn`t even give a poo. So one man got shot and he might of been innocent? Who cares.

In England, we`re kind of in a crisis with these riots. Everone`s been warned that the police have been instructed to carry out `the full force of the law`. There`s been talk of curfews. And every politician, leader, police chief, you name it has told the public not to go out. They`re asking for it.

There is no such thing as overkill in this sense. All the rioters, whether currently rioting or fleeing, deserve to be dealt with in this matter. drating pricks, go get em riot control.

@ATL1EN

If you don`t wanna get in trouble with the cops, don`t give `em any reason to suspect you. If they didn`t want to trouble the cops, those guys wouldn`t have taken off sprinting. They certainly deserved something--and they sure as Hell knew it.

Overboard? Well, maybe, but maybe not so much when all parties in England are calling for the use of rubber bullets, water cannon, and tear gas.

Looking at the video I think the cops were being guided by a CCTV operator who was tracking the people on bikes (probably stolen). It looks like the cops didn`t have line of sight with the riders when the started to sprint.

Please, im not a fan of repression but a good beating followed by a lawful sentence to jail to person who set somebody`s house on fire is nothing i would oppose to.

Scene from 28 Days Later. I guess a rioter is anyone not dressed in a cop uniform.

of course its overkill! always blame the "man" or the law. i mean who cares if these harmless bystanders just set fire to a building or car, or broke windows and looted stores. they have rights!!

Perhaps the rioters who have been caught, some 500 isn`t it?, should be released after they are burned out of house & home.

Over the top or Justice? ..... discuss

Things over here have been really bad, the police haven`t been able to do their job, this is their job. The scumbags who have been destroying peoples homes and businesses deserve nothing less.

Nice form tackle on the bicycle. Squared his shoulders, kept his head up, and used his momentum to pop back up and continue chasing the other one.

seems like the kind of policing i would expect, no overkill there. the london police got a lot of stick for not getting stuck in (as they have in the past) but that was started by a dodgy shooting (by the police). in manchester they are kicking off for other reasons...

@incubus inc cant tell if trolling or...

Not police over-kill. Taze the perps repeatedly until they have a heart attack and die then submit your application to serve in an American police department.

Those kids may well have been looters, but we don`t know. What we do know is that at least one of them stopped to address the police before having the shiit beat out of him. Guess its not just the London Met that are ruthless cnuts.

I might be all for riot police beating up rioters, simply because that is the sort of thing you have to expect if you want to riot.

... but there was no riot there. How did those cops know that those people on bikes were rioters?

Also seems like a waste of effort. If there is a riot going on elsewhere you`d think that ALL the riot police would also be there trying to arrest people and protecting buildings. Here you have a dozen cops going after 4 people and only managing to beat up 2.

If you`re far from the riot and you assume that those people did participate in the riot, then why beat them up at all? You can just arrest them given how many cops there are.

The video doesn`t give enough information to tell if the cops are really to blame, but I`d venture a guess that they are.

... but even if the cops are to blame, it`s a riot. Normal people aren`t gonna want to be outside anyway.

Hardly overkill. Pretty sure most of Britain couldn`t care less about those thieving scumbags getting the crap kicked out of them.

Not sure what the context is but the job of the Police is to control. This seemed excessive. They didnt seem provoked.

Complete police brutality. The guy at the back had stopped and wasn`t provoking them at all, so of course the cops beat the crap out of him.
