Im actually in shock at how bad the situation has got London on its forth night of riots and Birmingham onto its second ….. when will it stop ? will i be able to get home thursday night when i finish work at 8pm? will my shop be open or will it get looted and ill have no work ….?
I will not comment on the london controversy over the shooting of Mark Duggan as i don’t know facts , and obviously his family have a right to grieve for their loss and as be angry at the police for his death but shouldn’t be used as an excuse for people to cause so much destruction and violence and neither should other cities jump on the band wagon as they’ve seen people “get away with” it in london.
These kids out there havnt a clue and even more so its become a blame game on racism , job opputunieties and these kids believing they have no prospects and as i agree with some of these promlems this is not the reason these kids are rioting lets face it its the school holidays there bored, cant be bother to get a job or there parents cant be bothered to work and they think they can get something for nothing!
What i dont understand is why the videos ive seen the police look lost they havnt a clue how to deal with the situation and the rioters feed off this and grow in numbers atttacking smaller towns, family buisnesses and peoples homes.
To me they look like headless chickens running round there seems to be no order ???
The news say the parents should keep them indoors but the kids will stay out all day and not go home or there parents probably approve when there son or daughter comes home with a new tracksuit or phone for them ?
And its obvious the police will never catch them all there is simply too many , stores will have to close and lose money which effects us decent working people and everyones taxes will go up ? i dont understand why birmingham police was so little prepared with just batons and riot shields ? where was the rubber bullets , water canon …. police dogs ?
So what is the answer, how do we make these little boys and girls see that its not rooming the streets causing violence, looting and vandalism that make you look good or tough its doing the right thing getting an education , a job learning to drive being able to buy things you want with your own hard earned money , making your parents proud or proving to them you can do better !
The government need to set an example tougher punishment for the selfish and greedy and help those more in deprived areas ! and if these kids really want to stand for something take it to parliament not destroy your own communities !
I believe in a cause if its needed and yes our government need to change but they will only make things harder for us if we fuck up an already failing economy !
