    The rioting in England has moved from London to the cities of Manchester, Liverpool, and Birmingham. And if the violence started out as a localized and ethnically defined expression of rage over the police shooting of a black man, it has since become a hooligan’s free-for-all.

    England has become a bonfire for every left-wing gripe and excuse you can name. There’s the claim of racial injustice, of course, but there’s also the call to class warfare. Young British looters explained to the BBC that they’ve been “showing the rich we do what we want.” There is the demand for the continuation of the unbridled welfare state. In the Guardian, Nina Power describes the riots as a response to “brutal cuts” in government spending. And anarchists have joined the fray. One self-proclaimed British anarchist told the Associated Press, “This is the uprising of the working class. We’re redistributing the wealth.”

    Reclaiming the streets:Sikhs defend their temple and locals protect their pubs as ordinary Britons defy the rioters

    Some armed with swords, some carrying hockey sticks, defiant Sikhs stood guard outside their temples last night. More then 700 men, some in their 80s, took to the streets to protect the homes, businesses and places of worship in Southall, West London.

    The residents rallied together in a show of unity against looters echoed in other parts of the country as ordinary Britons attempted to reclaim the streets.

    Pictures of the crowds emerged as the Met Police today urged the public against forming groups intent on vigilante justice. Many of those who gathered in the late night public patrols had

    These are just some of the 2,000 suspects being hunted today over Britain's riot mayhem.

    Sun readers are urged to name and shame any morons they saw looting or committing arson and wrecking property. Commander Simon Foy warned rioters that the Met's Operation Withern would track them down.

    He said: "Those who have or intend to go out and commit violent, criminal acts should be warned. We will use photographs and evidence to identify you and bring you to justice. We will not tolerate the violence we have seen." Officers in London, Birmingham and Bristol released pictures--and many more images are

    That's where the photos came from..The point of the piece is to have the public identify the people in the photos... .Once they have a name to go with the pictures they can arrest them....Right about now the jails are mostly full and and the courts are going full blast to prosecute the ones they have in the lockups...

    It's interesting ,to me anyway, the police are going around telling the people to be calm and not to take their self defense into their own hands while the police are helplessly outnumbered...What are they supposed to do,stand there and be slaughtered..They've already had a number of people defending their homes killed by the mobs....

    The bigger problem is these riots are spreading on the Continent are offering the perfect opportunity for Islam to stage massive riots in countries where they hold significant population figures like France...

    They,the French government must be watching these riots while holding their breath in hopes that they won't spread there..

    As the economy falls apart, thanks to Obama and the big spending Liberals in the Senate, I expect public assistance to dry up in places like Detroit,Chicago and other big cities .If that happenes the riots will spread to Detroit and Philadelphia or anyplace with a large welfare crowd...

    The judges sentencing powers have been watered down. Most if not virtually all minus one or two will walk.

    Three dead when a car mowed down people trying to protect their homes..... "we will use water cannon on you" in the same nanny tone as an idiot mother telling the son who just smashed a window that if he doesn't stop he "might get a smack".

    Gun control, the nanny state and the impotence of the pissweak, halfassed, lackbrained, chickenshit craven cowardice of what is laughingly known as the London police.

    I have always been one. You, on the other hand, still sound like the same moron you have always been. BTW Megimoron, I left nursing close to 25 years ago.

    Do try and keep up.

    Actually more so, and as usual your lack of knowledge beyond anything that concerns the borders of the US is showing.

    ?.....BTW what do you do these days to keep your old ass afloat ?
    Is none of your business.
