The London Riots.

Post by Vigil on Mon Aug 08, 2011 3:33 pm

By now most of you must of heard about the riots in London.

A man shot at police then he was shot and killed by them. The council flat in Tottenham where he lived then held a protest over the killing, believing that he had been killed in an assassination style. Later that night riots broke out as they destroyed large parts of Tottenham, looting and burning down property.

Last night more violence happened around London.

Today, they hit near where I live.

That building in the top Photo/video on fire? I've been past it so many times in my life. I can hear the sirens from hear and see the smoke in the distance.

This isn't a quest to get justice on a man who was clearly in the wrong. It's descended into opportunistic vandalism. There destroying and looting just because they feel they can get away with it, and it's getting pretty bad right now.

It's going to be a active night that's for damn sure.

Apparently, it's all GTA's fault.

be safe



and the GTA thing is Horseshit. People who riot are just assholes who want to do shit while they believe (and probably do) have the opportunity to get away with it... a video game doesn't change the nature of assholes like this.

Recently there was some rioting about an hour drive from here of a shooting. It turns out that pretty much everyone arrested was not from that city, they mostly came from anarchist groups throughout the Western US. People coming from as far away as Oregon. It's probably the same way in those riots. Just try to stay out of the way, ok Vigil? Do not be Batman!

Yeah, the GTA thing is just another attempted jab at the medium.

But more importantly, yeah be safe Vigil. Hope this doesn't really affect you or anyone really badly.

These riots are pretty bad, and they're all excuses to loot. Make sure to have a bat at your house honestly.

I didn't think people could sink any lower in this whole mess.

I was wrong.

The riots have spread as far north as Leeds, my home town.

Crimes of arson, murder and theft have been recorded in Chapeltown, a community in Leeds not 15 minutes drive from my house Sad

I've got it easy compared to Vigil. London is a warzone right now - it's hell. Gangs control streets due to police reductions, their prime concern is protecting the fire service with what few numbers they have.

I'm lucky, I really do wish the best to you Vigil, 16,000 police on the streets tonight, 10,000 more than last night.
