Bollocks?: London Riots

A man is shot and his family hold a peaceful protest that turns nasty.

This apparently justifies putting on your arsehole hat and going out to loot, destroy and burn whatever the fuck you want.

Now I’m all for freedom of speech and the people’s right to question their government but torching a shop with TWENTY flats above is never justified. The shops that were looted weren’t owned by government fat cats, they were owned by innocent people who were just trying to make a living. Many people are now homeless.

One of the largest shops to be set on fire. There were twenty flats above it.

When one of the rioters was asked why he was rioting he replied “Why would you miss the opportunity to get free stuff? I’m not bothered”.

Lets be honest. None of these rioters give a shit about the man who was killed. There’s no political agenda and they don’t stand for anything. They are doing it out of greed.

However if we’ve seen the worst side of humanity over the last few days at least now we’re also seeing the best. Volunteers have been helping to clean up the mess caused by the riots and support is being offered to those badly affected.

Volunteers help sweep the mean streets.

Before I go there’s one more point I’d like to make. Look at this picture below of a man who stole a bag of Tesco’s own rice.

He might be able to flog that for anything between 40 to 70 pence.

If your going to go to the effort and risk of looting your food at least go for the better quality brands!
