London riots 2011 – Humanity going to shit

This month has seen another bout of disgraceful riots in London. It all started when last Thursday, police shot dead a pedestrian. Obviously it wasn’t quite as simple as a policeman shooting an innocent citizen, but I’m not 100% sure of the whole story. But in the only way the modern society can, people have taken umbridge to the shooting. This has lead to rioting continuing for three days across London, from Tottenham to Peckham, Croydon, Hackney and Lewisham. Take a look at some of the action.

This is absolutely disgusting. This kind of behavior is so utterly unacceptable, I just can’t get my head around why these people think they have the right to do this. But the thing is, not only is this terror being spread right the way across London, but things are even moving towards the city of Birmingham. Why?! Or more importantly, how?! Why in god’s name aren’t the police bringing in stronger reinforcements to deal with this level of rebellion? Hell, why aren’t they bringing in the army? There’s clearly no use being passive on them, force is needed to help end this.

But then, can you fight violence with violence? I don’t know. But one thing is for certain, this is a prime example of humanity going to complete shit. The fact these people think it’s ok to smash car windows, burn their own buildings own to the ground and set fire to houses and cars is just beyond me. 

How do you feel about all of this? Do you think the police or government should be doing more to contain this? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
