Actually I think there is a group people taking part who are legitimately appalled at London's lack of burning buildings and are taking matters into their own hands.

So correct me if I'm wrong, but it sounds like you have some people who just want to watch the world burn.

We've actually just got a lot of idiot kids and teenagers who think rioting is fun and no-one around to set them straight.

I would riot if we had them around here. It sounds like an awesome time.

"Why are you blowing cars up?"

"I have no idea! :D"

I live in South Essex.

If the rioting spreads to Stratford and Dagenham then chances are looters will start attacking the rest of our Precious High-Streets here once their like one McDonalds is burnt down.


No I am not over-reacting why would you say that.


EDIT: Shopping Centre near where I live is being looted. If I don't make it to tommorow tell Brandon that I think his hair is dumb.

Wow, I'm really glad to be in Maryland right now.
Who are you again and why in the world would you expect anything resembling rationality or civility in youtube comments?

If they try to break your stuff, hit them with a cricket bat.

But they have slightly bigger cricket bats.


EDIT: Anyone from Liverpool? BBC News says Liverpool is going under.

What is going on there Plank?
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

The same thing that is going on down here.


Also some fliers and intercepted BlackbBerry messages are starting to hint that the looters organised the entire thing, including where to strike next and what to do if they get spotted by cameras. This is getting weird.
