    It is unbelievable. We have had them here as well about 5 years ago. Just over 220 years ago Australia was settled by sending boat loads of English criminals, so I guess it's in the bloodlines!

    It didn't get as out of hand over here, but similar circumstances. A car was stolen by a few young guys and was spotted by Police and they gave chase. The driver took off and crashed into a tree killing the two passengers but he survived. It was in a lower socioeconomic area full of feral teenagers on welfare, with nothing better to do who have no respect for people that work hard to earn a living. They blamed the Police for their mates being killed and rioted for four nights. The driver was charged with a string of offences and only received 5 years jail.

    Want to mess with me?? EF YEAH YOUR GETTIN HOSED EFFER!
  5. They burned some apts down and a foot locker less than a block away. She told me she was going to be moving near a rough side of London to get an affordable Apt but I had no idea it was this rough. Nobody wants to say it but this is a race riot in a country that is trying so hard to be politically correct the police don't carry guns and the shop owners have no second amendment right to defend their property. They regularly release "reformed" sex offenders, murderers, and other criminals back into society. Something like 8 million adults have NEVER had a job and live off the govt. welfare system. As Audrey tells me. There are two Englands, London and the rest of England. The rest of England is fed up with immigrants but London is overrun with immigrants.

    I have no problem with immigrants and love my southern neighbor but you want immigrants to come to your country for all the right reasons. If they come to access a liberal welfare system then you are going to have trouble when you try to cut it back.

    By the way Dripit I saw a pic of your future Son In Law on Audrey's FB page. When's the big day?

    He's a great young man! Proud to have him as my son-in-law! He phoned me and very properly asked for her hand in marriage before asking her.

    It will be sometime in October 2012, having it in California where they met. Maybe you and Kiril can be my guests?

    I haven't followed it too closely, but it sounds to me like the rioters are primarily younger, lower income, minimal education, no jobs, that have been feeding off the gov't and are now getting cut off or limited by the gov't. Very high percentage of arrests are black. Is this right Pete?

    I think the public should fight back and beat them into submission. Get an education or learn a skilled trade. Pay your dues, slowly climb the ladder. Or else create the next "Al Gore internet" and propel to the front of the class immediately. Gov't assistance should be for those not able to work, not those that choose not to. If you can't pay rent, pack a tent and hit the hills. Don't complain to the queen that you are not getting help if you have not contributed to the programs by not working for years.
