What is happening to this country?

Post by Guest on 08.08.11 20:36

I have been watching the rioting earlier. It has now spread to Birmingham, as well as other areas of London and now we have this story below from Leeds. What on earth is happening to this country?

.Man shot in face in Chapeltown street

A man has been taken to hospital after being shot in the face on a street in Leeds.

Police officers were sent to Saville Place in the Chapeltown area of the city on Monday evening.

A police spokesman said they had few details of the incident but BBC television reporters at the scene said there was a crowd of up to 100 at the scene and some were masked.

A police spokesman confirmed one man had suffered gunshot injuries.

Appears to be north east, east and south London areas. Croydon like a war zone apparently

Where is our Prime minister? Boris had to be dragged away from his holiday kicking and screaming. This is obviously getting bigger and the rioting idiots are all jumping on the band wagon

Like so many of the leaders of our society, they go missing when they have to face responsibility. I am sure Cameron will issue a statement through carter ruck later!

Latest news is that Boris is on his way home, but Cameron isn't coming.

And to think I voted for that...

He is, just heard on sky breaking news. He's flying back tonight, and hosting a COBRA meeting in the morning.

Good. Better late than never, I suppose...

Rumours of military personnel on the streets of Croydon.

Go get 'em, boys...

They don't have enough resources. Clapham seems to have been the worst hit and there are no police at all there as they don't have enough officers

The price of cutting down on the police force. Hope we don't suffer a similar fate one day when we need our army, this is being almost cut in half

Just been watching BBC reporter in Clapham who got off the train there and can't get home. She's says there are hundreds of people there looting the shops. Originally 5 police officers tried to block them but had to retreat. Since then for the past 2 hours there hasn't been a single policeman, and the looters are going from shop to shop at will, kicking down and breaking doors and escaping with as much as they can carry. Debenhams has been totally looted as have been many other shops. She said she has never seen anything like it. Youths and she also said a girl were walking out carrying armfuls of stuff, and no-one there to stop any of it. I know the police are stretched, but this is terrible that this is being allowed to happen. Something has to be done and fast.

This has been building for many years. Human rights is a big cause imo because you can't teach kids right over wrong and teach them discipline without fear of being sued. bring back national service

Terryfying picture
London riots: terrified woman jumps from burning building

By Mirror.co.uk 8/08/2011








(Pic: WENN)



A woman jumps for her life from a burning building on another night of violence in London.

The terrified resident had to leap from a first floor window to escape the flames.

A small group of people stood beneath with their arms outstretched to cushion her fall.

The image was taken in Croydon, Surrey, just yards from the Reeves furniture store destroyed by fire.

The world has gone mad

Post by Marian on 09.08.11 8:57

I know that previous posters have mentioned lack of resources but I still find it hard to believe that the lowlife responsible (particularly in Clapham) were left to do as they pleased. Also, the sight of the furniture shop in Croydon being burnt to the ground with no fire crews in attendance is something that will remain with me for a long time.

4 years ago, I said to my husband, terrorists will not need to hijack planes in the future. All they need to do is to get together on the same night and burn old London down. If I thought about this 4 years ago, why didn't the Government. A plan should have been put into place many years ago in preperation for this. A plan that could have been activated within minutes. A COBRA meeting being held right now, means the Government have not considered this, or have an effective plan on how to deal with it.

Classify this right now as terrorism and order the Police to shoot to kill.

I don't do anything by half measures and very much have a zero tolerance, especially where violence is concerned.

They have to deal with this now, because just as I predicted all this 4 years ago, I strongly feel there is much worse to come already being planned.

This has been waiting to happen for a long time now and the bubble finally burst last night

I don't know who is worse, the scum on the streets of Britain last night or the spineless corrupt leaders of this society that have allowed this country to descend into the pits we now found ourselves in. The Smethurst's of this society who show no sense of responsibilities in their positions and live behind lawyers. MP's who themselves have looted from the public for years on end with their expenses. I feel ashamed to be British this morning
