Unless these rioters are destroying only their own areas, the Brits are going to have to start killing these people.
Are these rioters Muslim or who?
Only description I’ve seen is “black youths.” Beyond that, your guess is as good as mine.
It started in a black neighborhood, that is, mostly people from the Caribbean or from other formerly British colonies with a high African population.
Looking at the photos, I’d say it’s spread to other black areas, and also now involves some Muslims (at any rate, people who look as if they could be Pakistani or Arab) and a fair number of young white anarchists, just taking advantage of the disorder to make it worse.
Not at all comparable. 53 people died in the 1991 LA riots.
This... is London
I expect the same thing to happen here if Obama is not re-elected.
There’s time yet. Go to the link and see the stuff coming is.
Funny, I was going to say that I expect the same thing if he IS elected again.
Don’t the Bobbies have some mounted patrols? Police on horseback would really get into those crowds and disperse the scum that are looking for a fight.
Of course, I would not mind if the police declared martial law in some of those areas! Those business people are loosing their future at the hand of filth!

Hoods and masks don’t sound spontaneous.......
So be it.
this is a golden opportunity for the British people
to get rid of that family of parasites
that live in Buckingham Palace
Many of the “youths” are armed with machetes. You’d be surprised at how quickly a machete can turn a horse from an asset into a liability.
Also, no, they’re not spontaneous. They’re organized in “flash mob” fashion not on twitter but on the Blackberry network of all things. One of the papers has even seen the schedule of where and when they’ll be on Friday night.
Very telling when it says the fire brigade is running out of fire engines.
When it happens here, our fire departments will not respond due to being fired upon.
Prayers for Britain tonight.
Huge Sony Distribution Center set on fire.....No more jobs there.
