Apparently a group of white men in their 30's to 40's chased off a group of black looters in Enfield. It's nice to see that people are defending their community, but they just HAD to start yelling racist slurs and making it a race thing.

Why can't they just keep the race bit off and just chase and beat ANY robbers/looters.

take what you can get, as long as the looters are being driven off thats what matters

I'm actually pretty scared now. I've heard from friends that a few rioters are attempting to break into shops in Cheltenham, only 3 miles away, but can't find any official news on it. The chavs are pretty bad around here, they already burned down Ladbrokes in my village a few months ago, so who knows what may happen tonight.

I can guarantee you that it had something to do with the way fathers are treated over there.

I suggest that you all watch this gut-wrenching video.

Fathers over there are being treated so poorly that they take to the street in protest...

How much more blood do they want:

Looting and attacking people, if this was about the way fathers are treated, which it isn't. I say they are treated just right for the type of people they clearly are.

Since when was this about Dads? These riots are being caused by kids, 12- early twenties they either do not have children or have multiple and gotten a few of the east ends slags preggas and are awaiting another batch and don't even know their fucking names and never see em. If there is anything you can pin this on it's social class, but in my opinion it's utter stupidity and mob mentality that is driving these riots. That said, police have control over London for now it seems.

There's a bunch old Bill milling around Nugent and down the road Curry's and PC World have boarded up their fronts. No sign of any mobs forming in Priory Gardens, despite what's being posted on Twitter. Seems like everywhere is prepared tonight.

Yeah I kept hearing reports of congregations in the gardens, star lane, and the priory school, and there were bill at the park entrance earlier too but I never heard anything. Deadly quiet actually. I think it'll be pretty much over tonight.

That's not typical for fathers for justice. And I'm talking about the reason that the father was shooting at the police. It was probably because of how he was treated by the family courts, and one particular father had enough of it, and he chose to get violent with his oppressors.

Have you heard the story of Thomas Ball?

http://www.ibtimes.com/articles/164827/2 0110617/thomas-ball-self-immolate-child-
support.htm

Men are killing themselves due to their treatment in family courts. There is something inarguably wrong here.

Thoroughly ignorant statements.

If judges did hat was best for the child, then they would let men be dads.

Do you live around there?

If so, become a DAd, deal with the family courts, and them come, and talk to me.

Please go back to the politics forum.

He was shot because he was a drug dealer (or involved with drug dealing) it had nothing to do with his status as a father. I'm 99% sure you're just being a dick for the sake of it, but it had nothing to do with him being a father.

That is an incredibly stupid argument and also please learn to spell. I'm not going to talk to you after this seen as though this is about the riots. If you want to show you incredibly biased view on family cases then make a thread about it

Yea, I wasn't expecting Manchester to get this bad based on previous news coverage. If things don't happen to die down over the next couple nights I'm going to have to consider cancelling my trip to Manchester this Friday, which is extremely frustrating seeing as I have been waiting a couple months for this. I'll definitely be trying to keep a damn close eye on what's going on.

I wonder how long this rioting will actually go on.

Yeah these riots have nothing to do with fathers for justice. Maybe while you're banned you can spend more time sucking the dicks of fathers for justice and less time derailing threads on the interwebz.

I'm actually wondering which would be better, if they ended quickly so that this could all be over and done with, or if they continued to the point where eventually martial law got set in. But no idea how long that will take.

The first day was stupid but was suppose to have a spark for it. All days after are just milking the chance to cause trouble. I really can't stand people who are really going to do it again tonight just for their own selfish wants.

Which city are they referring to? I notice London doesn't seem to be getting much coverage by the BBC just now. They seem far more focused on the other cities just now.

When the army takes control. If those idiots don't stop it is inevitable in the end, and they really don't want to push it that far.

Military takes over would pretty much be the jist of it. It's what happened to the Southern US after the Civil War.

Normally I would never think zombies were in real life, but reading a zombie book right before hearing about terrible riots in London just sorta put things together.

Of course, there's no outbreak. Just rioting. I'm sure.
