London Riotings! - Out of control already...

This is absolutely rediculous.

A taxi driver shot at a police officer, the police officer shot back, and the taxi man died.

And because of this, the whole of London have gone rioting, looting shops, setting fire to everything and anything...

And it's now spread to other parts of the country.

Birmingham at the moment, Sky news has confirmed, but according to other people Manchester, Bristol and Cardiff have started rioting. I'm around 20 minutes away from Cardiff.

Our laws in this country suck! Their saying this.

David Cameron "I am granting the Metropolitan Police emergency powers to use water cannons, rubber bullets and tear gas to take back control of our streets from these ponsing parasites biting the hand that feeds them. In addition I am deploying the British Army as a visible presence to provide the authority that is so very lacking."

It's monkey see, monkey do!

What is this world coming to...

And I hope any members in this whole mess stay safe!

They should bring the army in now, I think that's what they've planned to do.

But police are so busy tending to places affected, that other places are getting worse, and fire engines to put out the fire... There aren't any around.

It's shocking... And quite scary at the same time :/

Nope, Taxi Man :/ But maybe he was also a drug dealer too, I haven't seen that on the news though, only that he was a taxi man.

Liverpool has now started rioting, ah... It's just going to get worse from here.

He wasn't a taxi driver?
He was a drug dealer, gang member...a thug.
He was in a taxi going home when the police stopped the taxi.
And the reason the riot started was that it wasn't clear if he shot at the police or not.
That was the original reason for the riot, but now it's just scum robbing and destroying places. Most of them don't even know why they are rioting.
And someone got shot and died and a bunch of people have lost their homes.
It's all very sad.

I thought it was a farmer with 4 kids!!! That's what my mom told me when she was reading the paper... tikes anyways!

We just had a riot not that long ago (Vancouver canucks lost) it was totally embarrassing for our city, and it was a planned riot, would have happened even if we won the cup! Some people are just so stupid, like a kid lost a scholarship to a university because they got a picture of him trying to light a car on fire.

I hate riots!!!

Yeah I work in London and live close by, its a nightmare at the moment. I got set home from work because of the trouble. Wish the police had more power to deal with these thugs. Hope everyone, including the police, stay safe tonight.
