I'm surprised there hasn't been any topics on this yet.

Since August 6th, there have been riots which began in London and have now spread all over England, the furthest so far being Manchester.

What do you make of the riots? Discuss!

Post  Re: England Riots

I'm for the riots but I just wish it was perhaps a little more organised and that they weren't looting small businesses and setting homes on fire.

I'm really shocked by the ignorance, anger and racism of some people over this though. On some websites, people are saying things like "bring back capital punishment for the looters", "why are they looting TVs and not books?" and "have you noticed almost all the rioters/looters are black?" which is then followed by a bunch of racist bullshit.

On the news they repeatedly show the same footage of the 'worst' parts and of the same rioters. Cameron is trying to convince us that the riots are just 'criminality' when it's obviously deeper than that and political. I wish the public would form their own opinions and stop believing the bullshit spouted out by the media. Now the fucking British Nazi Party are going to get more votes, great..

ive noticed people say its all black people and that but does it shite make a difference what colour skin they are and there not all black cause a 12 year old white boy was caught in one yesterday and he can't get arrested or summit , i believe orriginally there was some good reasons behind the riots like you said how the police were acting down south like searching people in the streets for no reason and shooting that lad but now i think its just chaos like attacking people in the street a 68 year old man got killed in the riots i think it was yesterday and that lad who got mugged and the fact there looting and ruinig there community its all just lost what they were orriginally fighting for .

Yeah, and so what if the majority of the rioters are black? There's a reason for that - the riot started because of oppression and racism against them; the police were constantly hassling them, stopping and searching them under the 'terrorism law', treating them as criminals for no reason, etc. They just got sick of it and retaliated. Good for them I say.
I think the guy (Mark Duggan) being shot dead by police even though he hadn't fired at them was just the last straw really, not the direct reason for the riots.
But there have been some people who have joined in out of nowhere purely for the sake of looting, not even realising or bothering to work out why the riots had started in the first place. There's no need to mug people, rob small businesses or set peoples homes on fire. The problem isn't your community, it's the government and police so go after them!!

I haven't heard much about the riots lately, have they stopped now or something?

idk if they've stopped but i know 2 people have been killed so far because of them 3 including mark duggan and yeah i agree i think that lad getting shot was the last straw , its a shame there not fighting for the right reasons anymore , just to get a new tv or summit is probably why they are now , but there was one lass who stole a tv and she had just graduated from uni to be a social worker and she had obviously been arrested and apparently she was crying her eyes out cause obvs now she can't have that job cause of the crb checks etc.

Has it been 2 people? I've heard about one guy being shot in his car, and two other guys killed trying to defend their property.

Yeah, I saw a video of a woman shouting at them in Hackney, she's pretty much got it right - "if you're fighting for a fucking cause then fight for a fucking cause".

They should be looting huge stores where a few stolen TVs or laptops wouldn't dent their business, not a small business bearly able to stand!

I saw a dutch girl that lived in london for a few years now, some tv show braught her in. she told that it is the attitude of the yought that causes the riots and the way a lot of parents handle their children. alot of children doesn't have to do anything for their money or presents or food they get from their parents. good example is that some parents of an 8 year old, had to contract a loan, to get their daughter an I phone, so she could be cool in school. some classmates of me(around 20 years old) have never worked they get everyting from their parents(even money for beer), and so I can go on. the moment somebody has to take care of himself, it all goes wrong. because they never did.

I don't think it's just to do with the attitude of the youth and their parents though. Maybe regarding some of the looters who just stole things for the sake of it, but not the ones who initially started the riots.
If the youth have any sort of 'attitude problem', it is a result of our government. Hackney and Tottenham are some of the poorest areas of London, and were hit hardest by the job cuts. Money was being taken out of the communities and spent elsewhere, youth centres were forced to shut, etc... add to this the constant harrassment by the police and it all boils over into the riots we witnessed. That's what I think anyway.

The media make us believe that we have to own a 42" television, a touch-screen laptop, an iPhone, etc to be 'cool' and 'socially accepted' - imo this is the reason for most of the looting that occurred.
And as you just said PunkonaHorse, the parents of that girl got her an iPhone just so she could be 'cool in school' - why does owning such an expensive mobile phone make you cool?

Lol I don't see the point in all these stupid, expensive gadgets. :?

I think they've stopped now yeah, well at least I haven't heard anything about them anymore. I went to one of the towns close by to check out the damage, because it was hit by rioters a few days ago. There was a few burnt buildings (not completely burnt down, but had clearly been on fire) and smashed shop windows. One of the buildings had been boarded up with "have your say" written on, and everyone was writing on it. Might go back and write something myself haha
