London riots


Crazy. Opportunism at its worst.

Following the mess in Tottenham its looks as though there were a few riots in Enfield and down south.

Friends of mine in Tottenham were telling me scumbags had the audacity to break into sports shops and take their time to try on shoes !!!??

People walking around with shopping trolleys full of hookey gear.

Should have hosed em all down.

And just a stones throw away from me

It looks like a warzone - just no excuse for this destruction

As for the looting, they need more than hosing down!

The IPC, need to quickly say what happened, but as above simply no excuse for what is going on - a lot of people need to get thrown in jail for a long time

Had to be done

Tottenham has come such a long way since the Broadwater tradegy.
This has just mocked all the progress made since then.
Really shameful : (

someone being shot by the police who had already taken one shot at the police, and was lining up another...

Sounds like police did the right thing...

Im waiting for the usual 'police are racist' thing to come out next.... cos that justifies the looting and burning down of property.

Have some friends in the area, one has had her garden destroyed and another got robbed by 2 black guys in her house of all her jewellery.

It does sound like a no-brainer, people are reporting clearly hearing the police warnings which were ignored. Hence my comment - IPC need to publish quickly what happened

Either way IPC are screwed... they publish a report and everyone is going to say the police are prejuiced!!

Apparently (BBC Website) if i read it correctly - the family took 14 people to identify the body! WTF? what possible reason would u need to.

Headline should have read 'Drug Dealer Shot Dead ... PC given a Medal'

End of.

People are looting in brixton now

Why did the media report it so brutally. The guy was armed and fired at a policeman.

In this country the law favours the criminals..look at the state of the prisons in the UK compared to everywhere else in the world. And the police here don't even carry standard issued handguns...anyone would be tempted to have a pop at the police. And these criminals/looters/yobs in London are not doing certain ethnicity any favour..giving themselves a bad name by fighting fire with fire.
Have i missed something, are police officers not allowed to retaliate when they are fired at anymore

Thats the other thing .. this wasnt a random police act. It was part of project trident aimed at reducing gun crime in the black community.

I can see this dead twat becoming some sort of martyr.

without sounding like a racist, i think it all started from the immigration policy courtesy of the previous ruling government. Britain should be welcoming highly skilled migrants ie those who could contribute to nation building(look at Australia) and turning away those who do not have good enough reasons to be here... accept any Tom Dick or Harry, good or bad at a drop of a hat with their uncles, aunties,etc and so forth..well you get the picture. This country has seen little progress compared to Australia, USA etc. We wouldn't be in economic recession if things were different.....

Honestly dont think the riots are race related, anyone trying to argue they are, are just being flammatory (i.e the media and the rioters themselves).

Tottenham has a very ethnically diverse population, the looters were of all colours (including white). Most of the youths were likely the bored, unemployed scrotes of the community which lets face it, Tottenham has alot of. Lack of cohesion and funding in the community does not help.

Added to that the man that was shot (and rightly shot if he shot at an officer) was apparently someone high up in the Broadwater estate criminal social circle, which must have contributed to the criminal scrotes and oppurtunsits coming out from the rocks they were hiding under.

At this stage all we can say with any confidence is that...

"The guy was (alledgedly) armed and (alledgedly) shot at police".


IF the report confirms that he was armed and worse that he shot at police, then absolutely, police were right to take him out, but let's face it, the police have form for covering their own backsides in these situtations and leaking information that later proves to be a can of lies (Menenzes springs to mind).

F**K that we have got enough highly skilled people on the dole as it is without the job market being undercut by cheap (if talented) foreigners.

It looks like it's an early kick off in Hackney tonight, reports are saying that a large mob has gathered and are attacking police vehicles yet again!

Shops in Hackney and surrounding areas are closing early and boarding up the windows/doors.
