[QUOTE=D3vils Buddy;31612498]That is a real picture, but from an incident in Italy. [url]http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1084749/Pictured-Escaped-Siberian-tiger-enjoys-night-time-stroll-southern-Italian-town.html[/url][/QUOTE] Ah, false alarm then. Sorry everyone.
From what I remember of my theory test, the zigzags mean "Slow down, do not overtake, do not stop unnecessarily, do not park"
I've heard rioting spread to Fulham. Anyone else in the H&F Burough?
[QUOTE=Sastion;31612489]Oh wow. Can you think of anything more perfect than a rioter getting eaten by a tiger he released? [b]Justice![/b][/QUOTE] That would be bad karma :v:

[QUOTE=Appolox;31612441]And they will put them in overcrowded cells or maybe you subconsciously suggest a Nazi camp, don't forget human rights, they are humans after all even if you arrest them, you can't keep them there forever without any evidence.[/QUOTE] G20 Toronto, they arrested hundreds during the riots, AFAIK about 8 were criminally charged. Police held them for the maximum 24 hours they could and then released them, it's a crowd control tactic, albeit one that sheds a bad light on police.
The guy on Sky at the moment has it right, the police are way too over stretched right now. They have so many officers in places to prevent stuff flaring up again while the fire brigade are there they can't respond to new incidents. Like the one in Camden that is starting apparently.
[QUOTE=DaCommie1;31612458]6 stars is the tank, 5 is the FBI, but since it's Britain wouldn't it be MI5/6?[/QUOTE] GTA Wiki has yielded no information. Awaiting results of a full investigation.
Apparently, There are now fires in Chelmsley Wood...3 miles up the road from me...
On sky you can hear in the background what is going on, lots of screaming.
Just saw this, wow. [img]http://26.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lpmrd25RSq1qjytijo1_500.jpg[/img] Also my friends are telling me someone just got shot dead in Croydon. And there is apparently now fires in Isleworth, which is ~4 miles just across the river from me.

[QUOTE=Patroclus Rex;31612563]GTA Wiki has yielded no information. Awaiting results of a full investigation.[/QUOTE] Well it depends on the British equivalent of the FBI, I know it's either MI5 or MI6, but I don't know which is internal and which is external.
[QUOTE=Gibo990;31612182][MEDIA]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6SHKhvVjLIc[/MEDIA] Some absolute truth from this woman talking about these little shits burning down local businesses.[/QUOTE] She should go on that show Undercover Boss
[QUOTE=LewyJudge12;31612589]Be careful if it comes up the road man. [editline]8th August 2011[/editline] holy fuck.[/QUOTE] I'm keeping eyes out for everything.
That woman's speech should be sent around and spoken all across greater london

(That image is from Croydon by the way, my nerdiness is showing but they are tram signs)

I'm watching the live coverage on the BBC website. About 215 people have been arrested since saturday.
Nevermind got the link
Fuck this shit, I wish the police would get some fucking balls and tear gas all the selfish wankers doing this. I think its warranted given the situation, they are setting london on fire for fuck sake. Enough is enough. Hell I'd be happy with getting the army involved to help control the situation if it continues to get out of hand.
[QUOTE=ragawaga;31612651]Nevermind got the link[/QUOTE] Chavs, as I believe they're called, are apparently trying to start the second great fire of London so they can get away with theft.
Shit. They're in Ealing.
[QUOTE=B-hazard;31612586] Also my friends are telling me someone just got shot dead in Croydon. [/QUOTE] Twitter are saying its a non fatal shooting (according to Sky). Waiting for Sky to come back from a break, adverts at the moment.

Fresh off the BBC's live feed. "Local residents in Clapham are telling me that parts of Lavender Hill are now a no-go zone. Groups of people have been turning up with their faces covered. I am told that residents cannot see any police officers. They are deeply concerned."
[QUOTE=Bytecry;31612681]Shit. They're in Ealing.[/QUOTE] Good luck. You have my best wishes.

Oh god. Sister just showed me a photo of a tiger on the road.
