@fatninja: *iconic*

@bucksteeth: Yeah well it was more of a local gathering of angry french hockey fans. Not really a true riot but hey, if there`s a Quebecard chasing me with a hockey stick, i`ll be pooting bricks all the way to the border.

@deathxtra This all started last Saturday when a fella called mark duggan was shot dead by police, so that night there was a riot in protest (apparently). The next night the riot continued, but in loads of other place, and on monday it spread even further. in short, whatever the "real" reason was for the violence, this whole thing has become a four-dar study on the chav / yob problem in britain. we`ve got thousands of under 25s destroying streets and properties and looting everything they can get their hands on, and some of them are telling the national news that "we is mad at how dem governments treat us, innit". some were claiming it was because tuition fees are so high - as if these morons can even do basic arithmetic. *stops short of 20 page rant*

I`ve been hearing a lot of hype about these riots, but I have no idea what it`s about or why they`re rioting. Can anyone fill me in?

The Vancouver riots were like a box social compared to this.

I love how this is taking attention away from the fact that we recently had to go through this up here :3

@LuckyDave...i dunno where you`ve been, but regardless of the riots there will still most likely be a "Former United States" before a "Former United Kingdom"

All the London riot affirms is: Just because you have an accent doesn`t make you smarter or less likely to be absolute scum. Unless your Irish that is ;)

"Oh USA you`re so violent and destructive, we hate you all...excuse me while I set fire to this poor woman`s home...now where was I?" So London, now can you accept that there are just bad eggs everywhere?

In the movie "V for Vendetta" they talk about the "Former United States". Perhaps they should have been talking about the "Former United Kingdom".

Mobs of people are mobs. They`re rioting for the sake of rioting and looting. They are pointless space-fillers and they know it, so they riot and loot.

Some people will say it`s about a man who was shot by police because he pulled a gun on them, but that`s crap. They`re not even bothering to use that as an excuse because even the stupidest people understand that it`s irrelevant. Looting shops is not a protest against anything. It`s just looting.

This is nothing to do with a guy who may or may not have been `incorrectly` shot by the police, or as one liberal knob put it - `an insurrection` - most of these twats don`t even know which political party is in power. This is about smashing 5h1t up, burning 5h1t down and getting free tv`s and trainers (sneakers). Water cannon filled with permanent dye or preferably concentrated hydrochloric acid should bring it to a swift and satisfactory conclusion.

Going against the government is just an excuse in this case. They just want to enjoy a bit of the good ole ultra-violence and some free stuff. The ones who were really demonstrating and protesting were peaceful.

Riots don`t hurt the government. Riots hurt other people just as bad off as you are.

OH LOOK AT ME, I AM AGAINST THE POLICE AND THEREFOR BURN HOUSES. ALSO I GOT THESE NEAT NEW XBOX GAMES FROM THE LOOTING.

I haven`t been there, but I guess those rioters are the same weak witted drattards that will be the cause of why their system is drated up once they are allowed to vote.
Violent non-nice individuals.

Mark Duggan got killed by the police, he was a suspected drug dealer and the police were going to arrest him, Judging from what that says its not too big a deal, but most of the kids are using it as a chance to get some new trainers and clothes, it makes me ashamed to be a "youth" in London
