I'm sure you've all heard of the unnecessary and stupid events taking place in London at the moment. And what for? nothing.
Apparently, looting, starting fires and generally destroying not only buildings and landmarks, but people's lives and livelihoods is the right thing to do. And like many others have said, where are the authorities in all of this madness? who is keeping the UK safe?
YES it's not up to the Police etc alone to take charge and defend uprisings and antisocial behaviour, but at the same time, there are so many eye-witness reports of Police being the by-standers and overlooking the situations at hand. Wrong? Of course it is. While the relentless attacks in the Home Counties continue, there are still not enough people to help protect the innocent citizens that have to stand and watch as their homes are burnt down or areas destroyed.
The only people that actually seem to be taking matters into their own hands are the hundreds of Turkish shopkeepers, who defended themselves (and others) from the mobs of fucking idiotic youths descending and causing the utmost violence. Why can't more members of the public follow suit and actually try to defend and help stop the situations? Of course; the majority of youths ARE violent and will do whatever they can to fight against this - trying to save the situation should be done at one's own risk - but it still begs the question of the whereabouts of so-called "hard men" that continually make headlines for sending the bad guys down.
But let's not let the other bad guys get away unnamed - MOTHERS AND THEIR CHILDREN (some as young as 8) ARE ALSO PART OF THE RIOTING.
WHAT THE FUCK IS YOUR PROBLEM?!
Some internet gems:
Besides my ranting, i'd like to let you all know that i'm safe and at home with my family. My work was closed early today due to Police advice, so hopefully nothing bad will happen! I think i'm pretty lucky (for now) that nothing bad has happened in my area, although problems seem to be heading even more south pretty quickly (and for some reason, up in the north?? totally unrelated!!) and i'm really hoping that where I am, thing =s will be okay....
