Supposedly the violent riots in London and other UK cities are in outraged response to the killing by police of one dude, who police say shot first. This is as much about that as the looting and violence in New Orleans after Katrina was about poverty and need.
These youths are nothing but opportunistic thugs and criminals....and a stupider group of hooligans I haven't seen since the Rodney King riots in LA. They're destroying their own neighborhoods and looting the stores of their neighbors. What cretins! The cops need to go ahead and start shooting people. That should get their attention.
Hopefully the astonishingly relaxed criminal justice system in the UK might see the light here and start actually punishing people for criminal acts. Their experiment in mollycoddling misbehaving youths has been an abject, utter failure. It's time for the heavy hand of the law to crack some skulls in the motherland.
