    Unfortunately the Police aren't allowed to use water cannons because it's against their human rights! :(
    It's against the rest of the communities human rights to be living in fear. They should count themselves bloody lucky because in some countries they would all have been shot by now!

    I was so shocked to hear about the riots in London. Just can't believe it. To me, Brits just don't do stuff like that. They just don't.
    I am sorry but if the low life start doing this, then you will have to enter the new world where the police DO have the power to use whatever force is necessary to quell the force of the riot. SAD, really sad.

    Ah, well I was told it's a taxi driver who was also a drug dealer, but you know how much information circles the internet, sometimes it's hard to figure out what's what.

    Anyway, it's still horrible, and the riotings spreading even more.

    They've closed off train stations and bus stations in our city just incase and have police out.

    It's scary, and seeing the footage of some of this stuff...

    These girls are unbelievable.

    BBC News - London rioters: 'Showing the rich we do what we want'

    And this video shocked me too...

    BBC News - Injured boy mugged during disturbances in London

    Some people are claiming thier protesting... It doesn't look like it to me.

    Petrol bombs are now being thrown in Birmingham, and Londons already started up. Manchester have also joined in on the lootings.

    What is the world coming to...

    It's terrible, it just doesnt feel like home right now. I hope the government allow the police to get a better grip on things else who knows how far this could spiral.

    Well, I've just heard that Maeglas and Spitty are planning to riot tonight, I'll keep you updated :/ That's only 2 minutes away from me. Bloody mindless thugs, just in it for the fun of it! Because "Everyone else is doing it".


    I feel for everyone though, everyones scared to step out of their homes, and just living in fear, worrying if their house will be burnt down...

    The issues linked to this rioting are multiple and complex. Certainly the shooting of one man by the police was little more than a trigger for a riot and not the reason for a riot.

    When watching the news on TV, one could liken this episode in history to watching a horse shy at a plastic bag only for it to run off into the path of a heavy truck.

    The rioting will no doubt eventually be crushed by the authorities with whatever force it takes, particularly as relatively nearby to the first outbreak in London are the newly constructed stadiums being made ready for the Olympic Games next year.

    This is a sad no win situation for all concerned and as a Brit who was born in London I am utterly ashamed that this uprising, for that is what it is, has come about in the world’s sixth richest country.

    Watching it live on sky in work it was horrific.

    An 11 year old boy was arrested yesterday?! Where in the name of god are there parents that they do not know where your 11year old is.

    Personally im 21 and if a riot started in Ireland my parents would not let me out

    An 11 year old boy?!?! What is the world coming to?
    Personally I found it totally embarrassing when the people in Vancouver started rioting, we have a beautiful city here and they ruined it. Its really scary too, I have family over there and I was talking to my cousin and she said she was forced to leave work (her work was right in the middle of it) and she came home with a broken wrist because she was asulted by a young man! Its truly horrific!
