This is only down to hundreds of low-life, jobless, benefit-scrounging chavs and sub-human scumbags who enjoy causing trouble, get a buzz from kicking off and take pleasure from destroying stuff that isn't theirs. Any excuse to cause a ruckus and these pricks don't need asking twice.
The stuff I keep hearing about "This is a result of the socio-economic crisis" is a crock of pathetic, lefty bullshit dreamed up by limp, liberal human rights panderers who refuse to accept that to these excuses-for-human-beings, the punishment for causing this or any kind of trouble is nothing compared to the crime committed.
Punish these idiots properly and this wouldn't be happening. The fear of proper repercussions before they even start would prevent this from even occurring in the first place.
Come down on them like a tonne of bricks, and let's see how many looters are out there.
The fact that this has spread in the way it has just proves that it has literally NO agenda. The tts in Manchester, Liverpool, The Midlands and so on are simply of the mindset of "Well if the boys in London are doing it, let's do it too!".
Get out the water cannons, load up the rubber bullets (even that isn't far enough IMO) and get the fkers off our streets.
We need to get serious and quickly - will it happen? Will it fk.
On a different note to any members of the police force that may see this keep your head down and make sure you go home safely to your families I appreciate your efforts.
