They need a good clubbing.
[QUOTE=Deiru;31610335]I'll admit something. When I came on facebook, I expected to see idiots, but everyone has been saying how pathetic the riots are, and lots of sympathy...[/QUOTE] I just went to have a look on Facebook and it seems the people I have on there also have common sense. Complete hatred towards the riots.
[QUOTE=Jsm;31610290]Dunno if this has already been posted here or not, [url]http://londonriotsmap.appspot.com/[/url] Its based on the #uksnow stuff.[/QUOTE] I was gonna say I'm surprised there were riots in Scotland and then I saw it was Glasgow. Welp as long as the riots don't spread East into Kirkcaldy I think I'll be fine.
[QUOTE=Bengley;31610338]No, I know B-hazard personally and I know where he lives. He lives almost 14 miles from Croydon.[/QUOTE] I was thinking of direct distance not road distance, which I now see is ~7 miles (I'm shit at geography). It still worries me seeing all my friends who live in Croydon, Bromley, etc being caught in the middle of it.
[QUOTE=Takuat;31610371]I was gonna say I'm surprised there were riots in Scotland and then I saw it was Glasgow. Welp as long as the riots don't spread East into Fife and Edinburgh I think I'll be fine.[/QUOTE] The one in Glasgow is a false one, its someone talking about the G20 protests which I assume is also a Glasgow postcode.
Just saw some news coverage about this... dear people in Tottenham - You're Fucked.
Anyone see that furniture store on fire in Croydon on BBC? I'm 0.8 miles away from that. :c There's like 3 helicopters outside circling around. Can smell smoke from the back door too.
Talking a about Water Cannon and Army and the woman is like "Get them in from Ireland."
Oh. We don't own any water cannons? I didn't know what.
I'm in Bournemouth, like 95 miles away from all the shit. Sweet. [editline]8th August 2011[/editline] It's awful that people's homes are getting destroyed though. Fuckin' chavs.

3 miles from 1 reported riot for me.

Shitstorm!
To anyone who hasn't done so yet you might want to put BBC news channel on iPlayer for updates.
Unemployment, the shooting. Nope. This is just groups of Rent-a-Mobs.
[QUOTE=Sastion;31610436]Oh. We don't own any water cannons? I didn't know what.[/QUOTE] To put it bluntly, they're happy enough using water-cannons, rubber bullets, tear gas and the like in Belfast, but as soon as it comes to London it suddenly becomes "excessive" and the like. It's fucking stupid - it's the UNITED kingdom, why police different areas in different fashions?
[QUOTE=Sastion;31610436]Oh. We don't own any water cannons? I didn't know what.[/QUOTE] Its the way the police do shit here it seems, water cannons are not used in the (mainland) UK.

Oh the weatherman has cheered me up a lot :D

They still relatively often have bomb attempts and police shootings, the police there have to have guns
