Subject: BS: London Riots
From: SINSULL
Date: 08 Aug 11 - 08:43 AM

This morning's news carried an interesting piece. A reporter interviewed one of the rioters who asked where were the press when they held a peaceful protest a couple of weeks back. Now you see why we are rioting, he stated.
Jobs, poverty, hopelessness. And with the latest market downturns, it will only get worse.

If looting arson and violence are the answer, WTF is the question?
Such behaviour cannot EVER be justified.
Why is it we manufacture and sell water cannon to other countries, yet do not deploy them here as a means of crowd control?
It's what I would have used on those rioters and looters the other night.

I've no doubt that this will bring out the usual crop of polarised opinions, most of which will bear little relation to the reality of the situation.

I suspect that it will be next to impossible to sort out exactly why these riots took hold (as it has been with similar occurrences that have taken place in the past in my own area of Yorkshire). It was probably a combination of people who feel that they have a real grievance about the policing in the area, brought to a head by the shooting of Mark Duggan, others who are feeling more generally aggrieved about their social and economic situation, and those who just want the excitement of creating mayhem and being able to do a bit of looting on the back of it.

I have an awful feeling that we haven't seen the last of this kind of situation, especially as there is an ever-increasing number of people who have an ever-growing sense of alienation brought about by the ever-widening gap between rich and poor which has been happening for the last 30 years, aided and abetted by successive governments, plus the demonising as scroungers and wasters of anyone who, for whatever reason, is obliged to seek state benefits. The result of this has been to create an underclass which believes, not least because they have are constantly told so by the right-wing rags like the Daily Mail, that they are not part of society. Why, then, should they behave in a civilised manner?

What is certain is that the real losers are those people who have to live in the devastated communities and try to pick up the pieces of their lives, and the police officers and innocent bystanders who end up in hospital.

Or what about defending these poor young men who burned cars, buildings and wrecked all around them (like the peaceful protesters in London earlier this year) ?

I know, it's our fault, yes we must understand that many came from broken homes, their mothers took in washing (and milkmen too). Their fathers drank and kicked the SH 1 T out of them.

Anyone know the number of the appeal set up to give them a few pounds as their dole money isn't worth a fcuk. Drugs, alcohol and craft knives have all went up in price thanks to the Con/Libs.

Maybe we could offer them counselling or how to fit a French Letter ?

I totally agree, John, and it's a pity that a peaceful protest was hijacked by those intent on creating mayhem. I can't comment on the Duggan shooting because I don't know enough about it. My worry, as I said, is that this will spread across the country as we've seen on previous hot summer night in Bradford, Leeds etc., especially as my eldest lad will probably be one of the police called in to control it.

The Duggan connection is as yet opaque although very likely catalytic.   

The police are in a thankless position - at present they are I think being criticised for delay but it would have been easy for them to over-react and either way they get it.   I am not sure that I see this as being like their inflammatory and dishonest behaviour on other occasions - but there is a lot we don't know.

There is a lot of talk about the flash mob analogue - facebook twitter and text messaging apparently easing the spreading of information, but I have not yet heard anyone serious say that there was an organised co-ordination of assembly.

Most people are sympathetic to Syrian demonstrators, to the "Egyptian Spring" and to the revolution in Libya - but where is the dividing line? It is surely true that the overall trend in the UK and the USA for 30 years has been for the rich to get richer and the poor poorer. The assets of the Russian state finished up largely in the hands of criminals who had at best been black market traders.   The answer cannot be "God save the squire and his relations and keep us all in our proper stations", so at some point a stacked deck of cards needs to be changed for a new one, whether the organisers of the crooked game like it or not.   

This may or may not be the time for that, but we don't really yet know with much clarity what was in people's minds.

The gap isn't just that between the rich and the poor. It's also between the well educated and the ill educated. Kids are coming out of school, unable to read or write to an acceptable standard, and most of them are lost without a calculator to sort out even the simplest sums.
There should be a minimum standard which kids MUST attain, before they leave school. I remember kids whom I went to school with, being made to repeat a year, because they hadn't reached the standard required to go up into the next class/year. I suppose in these days when kids leave school with a certificate, whatever their exam marks, they wouldn't dream of doing such a thing.
Judging by some of the written applications for jobs I have received, I would suggest that a large proportion of the unemployed in this situation, are unemployable.

I am quite surprised that there seems to be such a vigorous store of frustration - thinking of comparisons to the Poll Tax riots.

And yes, I do think that many of those in the riots are, perhaps more forcefully than eloquently, calling for reform. I think they see themselves as trapped and exploited, denied the fruits available to others.

Some observations ...

I am trying to understand exactly how mindless these riots are.

At first I just thought - well, the Arab Spring and demos in greece have very clearly been about conflict between people and the government. These riots are not so clearly like that, as they appear to be people destroying their own locality's.

In addition, the political movements in the Middle East have been undeniably popular and representative of the people.

These Riots seem to represent a small minority ...


But then I thought - can I see a pattern?

99% of the violence has been directed at three targets - The police, Journalists and chain stores.

It may be possible to deduce a method in the madness..

Here in this part of south east London - Small businesses and private individuals have been pretty much left alone. The Curry's and Sainsbury's at the end of my street have been ransacked, but the small shops, Indian and chinese take-aways and restaurants and kebab shops have remained open throughout - I've just finished a chicken Bhuna that I went and collected without any hassle - and though there were clashes with the police, local residents, including myself, black white etc, have been ignored.

Some of these guys are gangsters according to some reports, whilst others may be trying to make a genuine point.

They clearly aren't educated or informed, and rioting is clearly counter-productive in so many ways - and their actions are undemocratic as the will of a tiny minority imposes misery on the majority.

But their targets do seem to reflect the three things that make many of us angry - the state (police), The media (journos) and big business and banks.

Nobody can tell me anything about the consequences and dangers of the riots - I live in the middle of it - but because I live here, I don't want it to get worse or to happen again. I therefore want someone to pay attention and try and learn something about it rather than to simply take a judgemental stance, use force to quell it, and have it come back another day.

Those lessons were learned in the 80's and Britains police is probably the best in the world at handling these kinds of events.

Lets hope they aren't forgotten.

It's really very simple Amos.

The family of a gangster who fired a gun at police officers trying to arrest him was shot, a common occurrence in the US but not in the UK.

The Police Complaints Authority were slow to engage with the family and explain the circumstances.

This led to a peaceful demonstration, which was hijacked by thugs whose only purpose was to destroy property and loot shops.

HD television sets cost a fortune over here, so if you want one for free it's a good idea to start a riot, loot the shops, then burn them out so they they can't tell what was nicked.

I predicted, on the night of the Tottenham riot, that this would spread, and it looks as though I got it right because, to date, we've had looting in Enfield , Hackney, and Croydon, and I'm wondering where it will stop. Maybe Cornwall, or the Scottish border?

2 more things

1. I was pretty much wrong about the "99%" thing

Reading Don's post, another possible explanation occurs to me ...

Many reports refer to gang members wearing their colours openly and calling a truce with each other so they can roam together ...

... Mark Duggan was allegedly a gangster, who certainly had psychotic tendecies ...

perhaps its down to organized crime and revenge ...


One thing which seems to be apparent now is that The police acknowledge that Duggan never shot at them, they merely feared he might.

We will find out what really happened in the fullness of time - but it does look like the details of the shooting incident could be an important part of understanding why this has taken off so fast.
