I've spent the last couple of hours watching the news, live coverage of the riots in London.
My god, what a bunch of animals. Even if someone, somewhere had a valid point to make, it was lost the moment the mob started smashing windows and attacking coppers.
I don't know if it's just me, but i think that this is people taking any excuse to cause damage to vent their frustrations, and what they're doing is just plain wrong.
Ok, so life is shit right now and the government couldn't juggle a single egg if someone gave them a third hand to do it with, but EVERYONE is dissatisfied right now and you don't see most of us going out and smashing shop windows or hurting people.
You think your life is bad so you go out and attack people and property? What about the people who are losing their businesses, their very livelihoods?
I saw a cab burning on the news. Do the people who set light to it have any idea how much that cost the cabby? Not to mention his licence, insurance etc. No, and nor do they care because they're selfish bastards.
What about the terrified people huddling in their homes, listening to the terror going on outside while they pray that it will pass them by? How would the rioters feel if that was their parents, siblings, grandparents?
Rioters, grow up. Get political if you want, but don't hurt your fellow Londoners.
Get over yourselves.
And my thoughts go out to all the emergency services and other people working to keep things under control and keep the deserving people of London as safe as they can.
