The attraction will be to see the looters unrelentingly pounded by water cannon in the arena.

Members of the public will be able to spend 5 per 10 minutes to go on the water cannon.

I'm sure other chargeable but not inhumane punishment/entertainment could be devised. Suggestions on a postcard....

Looters could earn their way out by doing something good/positive - learning a trade/skill/making something to get the victims helped.
Sounds very much like 'The Running Man' 1980's arnie film.

I work in London and the hysteria and rumours are rife. Have gone home this evening. Train station had more Police than usual. What was funny though was a train pulled in next to mine and two hoodies got off and were promptly arrested. Unless they had good intel I am not sure this is the best use of resource. Hopefully the 16000 officers on duty tonight will calm things down.

Best of luck to the police tonight.

Hopefully they do manage to get as many as possible but then no doubt we will have to listen to endless police brutality and hard luck stories.

Maybe not - I think the public will forgive the police if some of these scrotes "fall down the stairs".

Yeh you and me would but some civil rights do gooder will be crying for a police mans head if one of these scum bags gets so much as a scratch on them. This is the society the general public have moldered over the years. Lets the police have some freedom to do what needs to be done use force without fear of critical hindsight.

I think we used the to say "injury caused was self inflicted due to person placing themselves in position of grave danger ignoring requests to moove away from the area" leave or get your just deserts.

I think that is a slur on scumbags, just round them up lock them up if they actually own anything, take it away, all of it so when the get out thy have nothing, the same as all the people who lost their homes and bussineses.

May the Force be with you.

I feel sorry for the police, its not their fault society has failed so badly. Its a sad state of affairs when the youth of the country thinks this kind of thing is fun and acceptable. What ever happened to firm parenting?? I remember been hit with a slipper, wooden plank, and belt by my parents every time I did something that was deemed unacceptable, never did me any harm....

Didn't something very similar happen in Canada after a hockey match recently?? This together with the new financial crisis, maybe its time up for the west....may have to immigrate back to my home land soon

Sadly some Northern towns and cities are being subject to the same mindless violence, but only making the local news. We decided against going into Bradford centre to the cinema just in case. A sad decision to have to make. As a city that has been subject to riots in the past we felt that it could ignite. Terrible situation foranyone to have been caught up in as we were many years ago

An anonymous police officer in Surrey e-mails: The UK will continue to be under siege from the mindless violence until something changes in the way we police this country. When my granddad was a police officer in the 1940s he was feared by those who broke laws. He acted professionally and upheld the law, but did not have worry about trial by media if used force to restore order. Every use of force by a police officer in the UK has to be documented and justified. Many officers will not use the force necessary to restore order as they fear for their jobs and liberty! The interview with the two teenage girls on Monday shows this really well where they state 'we are showing the police we can do what we want!' The yobs and looters need something to fear [the police] or they will continue their reign of terror on the law abiding community.

^ that's 100% correct. Unless power is given back to the Police (and teachers) without being so ridiculously accountable, nothing will change.

So when did it all go so wrong? When I was growing up and out on the streets back in the late 60's. I had fear of Plod. I had fear for grown-ups, if I thought they might know my Parents

Quote:
The first person to appear before magistrates this morning, Teacher, Alexis Bailey, 31, of Wye Street, Battersea, south London, was committed to Wood Green Crown Court, along with the majority of others.

He pleaded guilty to burglary with intent to steal at Richer Sounds in Southend Road, Croydon on Monday. The BBC's Clive Coleman at Highbury Corner magistrates' court says his case is typical in that the magistrate committed him for sentence at the crown court. The reason for this is the magistrates' bench felt the riot was such an aggravating feature to the burglary that the crown court ought to sentence because they have additional powers. The magistrates felt that they had insufficient powers to sentence for a single count of burglary. They could only sentence for six months whereas that could be up to 10 years at the crown court.

Hopefully they'll get more than a slap on the back

The first in court was a teacher. At least he'll be sacked but it shows that it's not just disaffected youth: an education does not necessarily preclude you from being a scumbag tosspot.
