Riots in London

perhaps this explains why there was no attempt at a raid during the London trading hours, they are having trouble containing the rioters! Note the references to austerity , sounds a bit like Greece riots to me.

Sounds familiar...

"Frustration in this impoverished neighborhood, as in many others in Britain, has mounted as the government’s austerity budget has forced deep cuts in social services. At the same time, a widely held disdain for law enforcement here, where a large Afro-Caribbean population has felt singled out by the police for abuse, has only intensified through the drumbeat of scandal that has racked Scotland Yard in recent weeks and led to the resignation of the force’s two top commanders."

Fears of more violence after worst London riots for years

I should have included a quote from the article as you did. How about a picture though:

Down $20

Coming into the NY open I would consider a raid.  It may not have been a dramatic FUTF but it most certainly was a concerted capping effort to the downside, taking advantage of the weakness in the Pound and the Euro.

London has become England's Detroit.......Good Luck!

This isn't a race issue, the mobs who are burning and looting now are opportunists and mostly young people co-ordinating raids via socail networking and giving the police the runaround. By the time the police turn up to one incident, they've already dispersed and moved to another area to loot. It's got nothing to do with the police shooting of an African guy a few days ago - that was a completely separate incident.

the bbc's live stream has

the bbc's live stream has been spending the majority of the broadcast covering the riots.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-14449675

some of the tweets/texts on the side of the page are pretty telling:

0409: Raphael, West Ealing, London

writes: I am at home with my family in West Ealing, 300 meters from the shops that are being attacked. There are hooded teenagers walking past our house with bottles and bats. The shop owner from the corner shop is standing up in front of his shop to defend it in case it is attacked. We are starting to talk about ways to defend our house because there are people shouting outside. We do not feel safe at all. We need help. I don't see any other way but to bring in the army.

0150: @damiontucker23 in liverpool

tweets: Liverpool grove street man pulled from car and then car set alighthttp://t.co/Ee2Ao4t

I just asked one of my co-workers about the riots and she had no idea what I was talking about. She said, "it wasn't on NBC this morning."

thoughts..

thoughts on this a little while back

http://red-pill.org/arab-spring-european-summer-autumn-american-winter/

didnt see the UK kicking off yet, and to be fair most people there are saying this is more criminality and opportunist crime, lootings etc than austerity riots.

most of those rioters are too stupid to know how much trouble they're in financially yet, well beyond the day to day anyway.

i can't make all of it out,

i can't make all of it out, but for the most part.....

"....burning people's shops that they worked hard to start their business, you understand?....she's working hard to make her business work and then you lot want to go and burn it up?  for what?  just to say that you're warring and you're bad man?

this is about a fucking man that got shot in tottenham, this ain't about having fun on the road and busting up the place. get it real black people, get real.  

...if were fighting for a cause, let's fight for a fucking cause. you lot piss me the fuck off.  i'm ashamed to be a hackney person.  cause we're not all gathering together and fighting for a cause.  we're running down foot locker and tv...."

Nigel Farage KWN Blog Interview - Disturbing

"What we must do is stop the riot, what we must do is stop the spread because my fear is that there are people watching this who will see that at the moment there appears to be virtually no consequences for going out and setting fire to things and for looting.  The British government must send, today, send a very strong message or God only knows where this may go.”

That woman called him a rioter on live television.  Now granted, I dont know about that man's history, but calling someone a rioter instead of a protestor is a pretty blatant attempt to discredit.  Maybe that woman got nervous but somehow I dont think so.  The entire interview is skewed to her favor and against the man.

Notice the volumes

Notice how they constantly turn him down and interrupt everytime he makes a valid point.

This guy has pointed out the trigger... it's easy to just point fingers and complain about the damage, but when so many are involved... you should look at what caused masses of people to think like that?

Police states don't work! it's like backing a dog into a corner.
