It`s not a protest.It`s distracting the police so they can steal.

@xCYBERDYNEx

If a riot occured before this country exsisted that would mean they`re not american. In fact they`ve exsisted since ancient times belive it or not.

The Battle in Seattle (November 30, 1999)

The Chicago riots at the Democratic National Convention (August 28, 1968)

The Rodney King riots (April 29-May 4, 1992)

Riots after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. (April 1968)

@Solvent
because if they do the public response is always "OMG!!!!! WTF???? WHY DID YOU GUYS DO THAT!?!??!?"
it`s the same mentality behind somebody saying "why did you shoot me?!?!?" in a shooting game

I just love how police stand there and don`t take any action.

I feel this wouldn`t happen in the US just because we know we`d get the snot beat out of us by the police. There`s always a upside and downside to heavy police control I suppose.

Gerry - Riots are American? Since when?

And Paddy apparently the water cannons can`t be used in England which is friggin` ridiculous.

Its a joke how unprepared the police are to deal with riots in Britain. Apparently they can`t even use water cannons because every last one of them is in Northern Ireland, not one single water cannon on the entire island of Britain.

@McGovern1981 We do have armed police in the UK they could do the job, and of course I am referring to when in WW2 it during the London blitz looting was punishable by death though nobody was sentenced to execution. I really do wish somebody would exterminate the idiots that started all the looting and rioting.

Wow it really does show how disgraceful and how freaking stupid these scumbag rioters are when at 1:46 there breaking into a carpet right to loot some carpets pathetic idiots. In these instance I wish old wartime law was in effect e.g. if you loot you get shot. But of course that would be against animal rights in this case.

If they are `by no means soft on protesters,` then why are so many buildings on fire?

And are they really `protesters,` or just a mob of looters?

The British police may not use guns (well CO19 does) but they are by no means soft on protesters. If you look at footage from the recent student demonstrations in London, or go as far back as the mining strikes and the race riots, the Met and Thames Valley police really knock the protesters about. There was big controversy at the G8 rally where a police officer struck a woman to the floor ( although the threatened to glass a news reporter) and even more so about a police officer who killed a man who walked in-front of him. Plus, they have some pretty neat methods of crowd control using horses.

The rioting isn`t a protest or anything. It`s just a load of twats and monkeys who have decided to start trouble just because they can.

The trouble in London doesn`t really have anything to do with Duggan, its just being used as an excuse for pathetic, filthy little scumbags to go out and act like the pointless c-unts that they are. If they`re so angry at the police then why don`t they confront them rather than breaking into shops and burning down innocent peoples cars places of business? Whats going on right now is widespread robbery and arson, and the police force are doing nothing about it, they just look like bystanders out looking for a nosey.

Lol, I think they messed up my title...Anyway, *makes lots of general comments about how Britain SUCKS because of rioters* ;)

This is sad to see, and surely doesn`t represent the country as a whole. Think anyone will get out there the next day and help clean up?

Is it just me or is the world starting to change? Or maybe it`s just because I`m young and haven`t seen much of the world.

Any older more experienced people willing to confirm?

and also, I know what they protest about, but what for?

What are the riot police doing about this? They`re just standing there... I`m sorry, but they need to be putting this sh*t down. You give out a 5 minute warning to disperse over a bullhorn, and then it`s rubber bullets, tear gas and ass-beatings. I have no sympathy for rioters taking one man`s death as a reason to destroy a city.
