This wasn't rioting, this wasn't some kind of mass kick back against the system, but relatively small groups of young people taking their chance to steal.

I fucking hate pikeys.

I feel the same, police in towns around here [Birmingham] are just closing everywhere off early just in case. I hope you're right.

Well, the police said they are going to be using a much more forceful way of policing if it happens tonight. Hopefully that means smashing the fuckers heads in.

Yeah apparently police numbers are going to triple tonight so we'll see what happens. Sounds like it'll be over relatively quickly though.

Can you really blame him? Lord knows how unnecessarily violent and aggressive the police have been in dealing with this situation.

Reports of a few hundred youths roaming West Bromwich, near Birmingham smashing stores in.

Loads of shops in the Watford town centre have been closed, as has the budgens in West Watford.

Where the fuck will I get my Haribos from now?

I know there are people out there with far more reason to be annoyed than me, but god damn it. Typical that this type of stuff would start to kick off a few days before I'm due to be in Manchester for four days. Staying smack bang in the centre on Sunday night too.

Anyone will make an invalid excuse to get free stuff. Thats what riots are for, and thats why they exist. If the father shot the first bullet, then he had it coming.

Leave it to one person to kill/arrest hundreds of others and ruin the lives of business owners.

All the shops round here have been boarded up and people have been sent home from work early.

They're expecting big trouble tonight.

At this point a counter riot seems like a good idea?

If Birmingham got hit last night, I can see it hitting Coventry tonight. Fun fun fun, considering I'm going into town later on this evening.

You're going into Cov town or Birmingham town? Most places and clubs are closing tonight for safety.

It would be like that epic final battle from the Lord of the Rings trilogy, only more epic.

Fortunately I'm not in Salford at the minute, cause I live right next to that area when I'm at Uni. However I've heard from friends it's not as bad as it sounds, no looting or anything and the police have said there was only around 20 youths and one brick was thrown.
