These same goons attacked the Wisconsin State Fair. PC is rearing it’s ugly head. Enough handouts. People have to work.
Even if he is reelected, there will be riots when both terms are over and he has ot leave. Either way, there are going to be riots, so frankly it’s best to get this out of our systems now than later. We cannot keep placating this insane minority.
That’s a stretch. The royals are to the British like our American movie stars. They mean nothing, but are fun to watch.
Not these days. These days they are going into the wealtheir areas, much like they did last year when they decided to flash mob protest into luxury hotels and go after luxurious restaurants.
About five SAS paratroopers per riot scene ought to put a quick end to things.
Creepy,,,but food for thought.
The dead man, an illegal weapons and drug dealer, was armed and shot at police who returned fire. The police who went in to apprehend the man, shot back, killing their attacker.
Got it now?
Shoot the bastards and stack their dead bodies like firewood.
Bingo. You won’t see this crap here much beyond their own neighborhoods. People watched the Rodney King riots and the Korean Shopkeepers, and they took notes.
Trevor Reeves, owner of the furniture store torched in Croydon tonight, told Sky News his life had been ruined tonight. The firm was established in 1867. “It has just provided my family and the 15 or 20 staff and families that were supported, it’s just completely destroyed. Words fail me. It’s just gone, it’s five generations. My father is distraught at the moment. It’s just mindless thuggery.”
“I was just reading reports on the BBC web site and the British Home Secretary says these riots are “totally unacceptable”.”
10 seconds wasted.
Spewing useless, safe condemnatory platitudes, while heads could have been busted.
22.50 Earlier tonight Turkish and Kurdish shopowners in the Stoke Newington area of North London were guarding their premises with baseball bats. There are reports now of "hundreds" of young turkish men chasing a group of young black men down nearby Kingsland Road, Hackney.
22.20 The Telegraph's Josie Ensor reports she was chased by a gang of 30 men who pelted her with stones near Bethnal Green station, East London. She escaped down a side street. A gang of vandals broke the windows of an Islamic bank in Whitechapel but were chased off by a rival gang of 100 Muslim youths who are standing guard outside the East London Mosque. Local shops have been attacked.
Maybe sharia wouldn't be such a bad thing........no, no, what am I thinking??
>>After the riots the second shoe will drop - people will NOT choose to vacation in Great Britain.
They’ve got the Olympics coming to London in 2012. They’ll still have burned out building scattered about from the sounds of it.
I think it’s clear that the Majesty of the Queen should listen to their legitimate grievances.
From The Telegraph's live coverage:
01.37 IoC's Jacques Rogge is advising London 2012 Olympics organisers to not parade the Olympic torch through London boroughs.
Doesn't that lend itself to a rather obvious solution>?
If the bullet was police issue, the family has said it will sue.
According to Sky "the C019 firearms officer has said that he never claimed Duggan had shot at him.
The firearms officer is understood to have told investigators that he opened fire because he believed he was in danger from a lethal weapon. Two shots were fired, it is understood; one hit Duggan and one missed, lodging in another officer's radio."
According to the Sky article, the weapon Duggan had "carried in the minicab was a handgun which at one point had not been capable of firing a replica, a starting pistol or a collector's weapon. But the firearm had been converted as many illegal firearms purchased on the street are into a lethal weapon capable of carrying live ammunition."
Haven’t done much digging, honestly, but I have yet to see that info. WHere did you come across that? I’m only half paying attention to the news out of London at the moment.
