I've been hearing about this for a while and I hope our members over there are alright.

An interesting comic from a British cartoonist just popped up today expressing his thoughts on the situation:



His words that went along with the strip:
Quote
If you've not heard: thugs and looters have taken to the streets in a few cities across Fair Blighty these past couple of days.

It makes my blood boil on two fronts.

First: We have the tabloid-reading public, who harp on and on about an oppressive police presence. They p**s and moan about CCTV cameras and whine that the authorities are trying to control them, and so the government backs off, cuts budgets and ties hands with bureaucracy.
And then, when the riots kick off? The public blame the authorities for not doing enough.

Second: you have THIS kind of mentality running through the mob:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUzuYoCkYAY

The riots began as a result of a gang member being shot by police (which does tend to happen when you carry and discharge illegal firearms in London). The incident is still being investigated, but, as one of the responding officers had a bullet removed from his radio; it's fairly safe to say that the shoot-out was a 2-way thing.

Those girls in that video are just f**king idiots, this whole situation is just idiotic in so many ways. Just a bunch of a***oles trying to be hardcore. Hopefully they can be put in their place.

I'm near Preston, Lancs. People here haven't even discovered the wheel yet, so I think all should stay calm.

I'm supposed to be in the safest borough in all of London. And there are 32 of them!
But even I'm affected.

police really need to get on top of it, they looked useless on tv last night. people aren't afraid to riot... other countries would've got water cannons out straight away. I think the police are just too afraid of offending anyone(?)

I briefly saw a headline about these riots but didn't read the article.
What's the deal anyway?  Why are these riots happening?

It's like the World went nuts for a few days.  Everybody should calm down.  The riots are pointless mayhem.  30 servicemen including 22 SEALS died in a helicopter crash Saturday, presumably caused by an insurgent rocket.  Of course everybody knows about the markets.  The news is rotten and we're being crushed by it.  The English are a great people and everything will be okay again.
