    It's ridiculous here. I live in in East Dulwich not too far from Peckham and it's going crazy.

    It's going metal in Birmingham as well. They don't give two shits about the protests - it's just scumbags spotting an opportunity to be violent and steal!! Disgraceful!!

    indeed, getting worse and spreading, i kind of agree in an uprising as we are controlled to much by the nanny goverment and coverups but the looting and whole chav tasticness off it all is 2 much.

    Thing is it happens in europe alot look at greece turkey and even france, they stick up for themselves and yet it happens in UK and its like the worst thing in the work, its half media hype.

    etherway its bloody chavs and no respect for another persons property!

    It's rioting for violence's sake with no real reason behind it. Disgraceful if you ask me. I'm all for people's right to protest, and I've been on a few demos in my time, but nothing warrants this.

    Well, except a zombie uprising. That would be fair enough.

    Did this start as a protest against the nanny state? What's the political story behind this?

    You guys have guns in the UK?! I thought it was just us redneck yankees.

    But seriously, that's really sad that they shot someone that didn't do anything. Hope his family gets some kind of settlement.
