Hey Nick, we all know how does it look in TV and news.
 
But how does it look like in your eyes?

Fortunately nothing's happened near me but in London it's anarchy. It could have been a lot worse if it happened after Cameron's proposed police cuts

It reminds me about great riots in history like in ancient Rome, Alexandria or Constantinopol. In London lives 12 millions people, who will restore the order if only the 10% or 5% of them will riot....

It seems that the police are incapable of keeping order. What's needed is a people's militia: locals with big sticks and authorisation to protect their property and detain troublemakers until the cops arrive

I think London riots is an innaccurate desciption. The BBC now is calling them the UK Riots.
 
They started with a riot in Tottenham in North London and this turned into a 2nd and third night in London as many other places joined in all over the city, however the fourth night only seems to have had minor incidents. Meanwhile the riots spread accross the country and a dozen other cities have had 2-3 days of rioting, including Liverpool, Manchester, Leicester, Bristol and so on.......
 
Riots are common place in UK cities and rarely even make big news but about once every decade a series of national riots like this occur.
 
On one hand it's not great having  people running around being dangerous to innocent people, on the other hand TJ said, "'A government afraid of its citizens is a Democracy. Citizens afraid of government is tyranny". So perhaps we need this decadely spectacle.

It's Cameron's fault for raising university fees and cutting back on services for deprived areas. If he had any sense he'd recruit more cops (and build police stations at the center of the worst estates), stop giving money to the parasites in the Third World, withdraw the troops from Afghanistan, bring back national service, restrict university places to the smartest students (not rich twats from private schools), and encourage charities to provide youth clubs, gyms, martial arts clubs and arcades so young men have an outlet for their frustrations.

London riot has been the most celebrated street riot in the world right now. London riots cost the city of London tons of money. Many literally ran for their own lives while rioters burned some parts of the city. The cause of the riot is still unknown to everybody, many Londoners are still confused and unhappy about the whole mess in their beloved city. Many have cited social networks like Twitter and Facebook as having an essential role in spreading and fueling the on-going riots in London and alternative areas of the United Kingdom. But Twitter and Facebook are also taking an active role in the restoration attempts as hundreds of volunteers rally to literally clean up the streets. Source of article: Londoners gather for riot cleanup effort.

pfff, 99% of those rioters never even heard of hihschool let alone university. The problem is that David Cameron is accusing the 'yobs' but not asking why the riots happened in the first place. It wasn't mindless just because of the looting and destruction. I'm obviously against the violence but the government should seriously consider the origins of this problem with an open mind instead of just throwing accusations.

Never mind the leftyism (that's what caused this mess in the first place!) - go out and crack some heads. That'll serve as an excellent short terms solution. Then fix the society. Law and Order first.

"Bring back the Black n Tans" huh! That'll show them. Oh yes and castrate them too....................

I thought the rubber bullets was a good idea, as well as truncheons.
