Police do need to something extreme such as the water cannons, water bullets to slow the activity and show that they will be met with the long arm of the law. Official line is there are no water cannons...... so the police have plastic shields and helmets to help control the riots alone, good planning; for all the extremism that exists in our country you would think they would have plans for every scenario, same as you run a business, plan, plan, plan.
Cameron "to these people...you will feel the full force of the law" ..... seriously? There will be arrests, approx 450 at the moment but what will be the outcome? An ASBO? A fine? They certainly need to be made an example of to nip these actions in the bud.
Cameron "not only are you wrecking other people’s lives, you are wrecking your own" we now have to shell out for extra police and the insurance costs of repaired are going to be daft.
