    Hmm... where is all that criticism of America now? The apple doesn`t fall to far from the tree does it European IABer`s. Oh and don`t forget Vancouver. Right Canadians?

    One of these photos is incorrect, the woman was jumping from a burning building at Reeves Corner, not Surrey Street. Having just surveyed Surrey Street with my own eyes, there were no fires there, just looting. This is good news because Surrey Street is in The Doomsday Book and the thought of those buildings burning turns my stomach. It`s bad enough a 100 year old family owned business has just been destroyed, and for what? A few cheap beds and sofas. One of the major transport links, the trams, will be out for days, the heat melted the signals and power cables.

    My brother lives in Forest gate which is near the epicentre of it. Its not a protest; that finished long ago. This is an excuse for idiots to live out a real life version of GTA. The worst parts about it? Innocent people are being burned out of their homes, and the tax payer will foot the bill for everything (including the jail terms a handful of rioters will get). I feel sorry for the police who are so ill equipped and powerless to deal with this.

    So glad this kind of thing doesn`t happen where i live. Those of you in the area, please be safe.

    On another note, the police around my area would have started shooting beanbags and rubber bullets(and possibly real ones) long before now. We have very little tolerance for such foolishness in Alabama.

    Any rioters within 100 yards of my home would get one warning shot in the air, and if they aren`t heading in the opposite direction in 10 seconds, I`m putting them down. I have no tolerance for such pointless violence.

    I`m with Rarwg. Rioters need to get drated up. Use lethal forces, put those mother draters down. You choose to destroy your city, to loot it, to desecrate everything you live in, well then the city and its other inhabitants should have a right to destroy your life. I will show no pity for any rioter who gets shot, put those mother draters in the ground. My thoughts and prayers go out to the forces protecting the city and the civilians caught between the bullpoo. Hope London makes it through everything alright.

    Because the rioters are scum who like destroying things and looting.

    The UK authorities are appealing to the community, blah blah blah. These people have rejected civilisation - why the hell would they be interested in community?

    The excuse was an incident in which a person shot a policeman and was in turn shot by a policeman. But that was just an excuse. They`re rioting for the sake of rioting - rioting is their goal, not their method. They are sacks of poo with no reason to live and they know it, so they`re trying to drag everyone else down to their level.

    @ryan99
    It all started with a peaceful protest because an armed man, who shot at the police, was killed. Then it just escalated into madness, pikeys, chavs and degenrates just saw it as an opportunity to get their dirty hands on some free sh*t and burn some stuff. Now the `riots` have spread to other parts of the UK such as Liverpool.

    This was all planned months ago, the Robots of Brixton video posted a few days ago on IAB proves that. I`ve heard rumblings going around for a year. The police shooting in Tottenham was a coincidence. I wish the British Police were allowed to use bean bags/rubber bullets/water canon, right from the get go. We had at least two days warning in Croydon and they just stood by and let it happen, several local business destroyed along with Reeves Corner, which was over a century old. They just burned it for fun because it made a lovely big fire for them to dance around. No luxury goods there worth looting. It was all just cheap furniture inside a lovely old listed building, a London landmark. Makes me feel sick.

    Rawrg, you would be better off waiting until they cross your property line. Castle Clause only applies to your home and vehicle. Shooting them anywhere else unless you are directly threatened will most likely end with you being charged with murder.

    Disgusting... no reason for this destruction at all.

    I was watching the BBC earlier today and they were talking about using water cannons.

    I thought... why not. Seems like a reasonable counter. In fact I was surprised why they didn`t use water cannons already... could have put out those fires real quick.

    Maybe the problem is the police are too tame... they talked about having to "collect additional evidence" and "revolving door legal system". Maybe they need to step things up a bit.

    ... not like American cops of course, but enough to get the job done.

    I`m from London, and although the riots aren`t as bad as the media has made them out to be (they`re focussed in various areas, but are bad in these areas), it`s still a significant sign of the unrest that`s been building, especially over the last few months due to the cuts that the conservative government have made. Sure, that`s most definitely not an excuse, but for the people living here... this is definitely not a surprise.

    Also, @madest:
    It is August, yeah, but remember: It`s Britain.

    I honestly don`t see the problem with firing live rounds into a mob of looters and arsonists.

    So a few dozen hooded thugs wind up dead. Maybe that teaches the survivors a valuable lesson in manners and deportment.

    It`s either that or just stand around and watch them burn things. I guess we know which option London has chosen.

    This isnt to do with them having a "Cause". Its started with a guy getting shot by the police because he had a gun and was a threat. The family members and close friends of this man protested peacefuly, but then others got involved and it grew.
    More prople kept joining untill it was more then the police could handle. Other people around england have heard about what happened and have realised that if they have enough people rioting, the harder it will be to stop them.

    The army needs to get here good to take these people down, or people are going to have start froming their own. All i know is if it gets closer to my home and my loved ones come in harms way, Im fighting back. (Tbh im sure that i could kill a rioter and get away with it cause people will just think it was other rioters)

    Also R.I.P to the man who was shot last night and died this morning.

    I would rather have them stop now and turn themselves in then have them get shot down, but if they are going to endanger other peoples lives and not give a crap about the lives of others, why should we care about those lives?

    The photo of the woman jumping out of a burning building, they dont care if people burn. So personaly as long as there is a danger to the innocent people in our country, im sure im willing to sacrifice a few thugs.

    No, I`m not in any position of authority anywhere in the UK.

    But I will tell you this -- if at any point `rioting youth` come on my property in the US, they`ll be shot dead. Plain and simple. Maybe if you lot could say the same, you wouldn`t be watching the smoke from so many fires.

    Enjoy your civil unrest, safe in the knowledge that the `protesters` won`t even be facing water cannons, much less guns.

    While I certainly disagree with firing live rounds into random crowds (I didn`t know Ghadaffi posted here) something drastic needs to be done. These people are harming other completely innocent people in the name of protesting harming of a (allegedly armed) man. Harming others isn`t a very good show of protest to harming others...

    Wow, you people show an inordinate amount of concern for the well-being of arsonists and looters. You must be much better people than I. Are you planning a big block party for the looters, maybe offering them foot massages, facials, perhaps an Introduction to Yoga class? Good for you!

    I do hope the rioters recognize your innate goodness and many fine qualities, should you find yourself surrounded by them on a street someday. But I wouldn`t bet on it.

    Stay safe, Londoners. You may hate me, you may find me repulsive, but I hope all of you (aside from the rioters, screw them) make it out of this okay.

    BoredFrank, I`m not saying there shouldn`t be a higher level of enforcement. I just think your statement about using live rounds was ridiculous and downright Fascist. Be careful for what you wish for.

    jtrebowski -- We obviously see the `crowds` as two different entities. You, I think, see disadvantaged youth expressing their pent-up rage over a social system gone bad.

    I see a murderous mob of thugs who`d gleefully slaughter their own grandmothers if they thought she had a penny in her apron.

    Time to thin the herd. Now if you`ll pardon me I have a goose-stepping class...

    See? this is where having guns makes sense. Want to disperse a crowd? Fire into it. Time tested-government approved.

    Look, if the thought of using guns makes you queasy, just outfit a truck with powerful loudspeakers and play some Nickelback.

    Crowd flees, ears bleeding, demoralized over the terminal commercialization of rock and roll. Promotions and handshakes all around.

    Some of the buildings look like a bomb was dropped on them.

    @BoredFrank: that is an approach I can definitely get behind. I do want the Met to take a tougher approach, but I reckon the reason they are apprehensive about being too tough is due to incidents in the past, and the risk of it escalating. Don`t think the unwillingness to shoot Rioters equals a respect for them, I see them as nothing more than scum.

    I`ve been discussing it with people I know. Checked out BBC. SO many different stories views reasons as to why it started etc. Shiz has gotten pretty crazy. I`m near Preston NE England...Getting kinda edgy as it`s hit Manchester now so I hear.

    What disgusts me the most is that the fires have all been in small family or one man businesses, most of which have been there for years and years. All of the big chain stores can be up in business again by next week, insurance can replace everything and repair damages. Some people have lost everything, and a lot of the older buildings had flats above. That`s people made homeless, by children. This is why the police aren`t using water cannon or baton rounds or rubber bullets, alot of them are just kids, teenagers. Croydon will never be the same again.

    @boredfrank maybe cher lloyd`s `swagger jagger` rather than nickleback. That`ll clear london town good n proper :) As far as rebuilding goes; sadly alot of insurance policies rule out riots in their contract as a reason for damage to property along with `acts of god`. Many peoples livelihoods are indeed in tatters. And heard everywhere is the sound of `no win no fee` lawers rubbing their paws together for if the police have to use force. Its a pooe state of affairs, make no mistake.

    It was the excessive playing of that s*hite that started the riots in the first place!!!

    Someone turn that young ladies swag off so this madness ends.

    @ LazyMe484: As I stated at the bottom of the pics, I don`t think it would be right, but people are crazy and do crazy sh*t when pushed too far.

    @ boredfrank: Good idea, but I wouldn`t want to give one cent in royalties to that craptastic band.

    For the people who don`t want to shot these f*cks, if everyone lived happy in peace the Earth would be over populated and we`d all be bad off. If God has to THIN THE HERD then it won`t be just f*cktards like these. So if I had to chose between f*cktards or people who make a difference in the world, I chose f*cktards.
