London riots: CCTV pictures of suspects are released by the Metropolitan Police
Seems to me that is what the various controlling parties, the government, some leaders, others WANT in the UK. Not that this is news, especially. Here or there….
Media is filled with ME, other immigrants, long time non-immigrant Londoners and, I am sure, second and third generation immigrant as well, coming out of the woodwork… not that the CCTV film of the Malaysian student being supposedly helped to his feet, face bloodied but then he is robbed did anything but hurt…
AND of course, as always, criminals, the variously ‘disaffected but not involved in the issues at hand’ types, join in.
Not only ”Barbarians with Blackberries”, but ”feral rats”, “Pakis”, “black dogs” is heard… Same old same old as here… white ethnics, POC from preferred communities, etc., making headway, while others languish… We have certainly seen decades and generations of that here.
I’ve read reports of Hasidic Jews, among a range of criminals/opportunists, involved in looting, but apparently kept off still shots and film that is being distributed to the press… That happened in LA in the riots of ’92…. Koreans were clearly looting – as well - and a careful viewing of film proved it, but hardly mentioned.
We’ll see what comes next.
As for here, Nose + Dive. I wonder what Friday will look like. Bargain shopping or no desire to hold much of anything over the weekend. Who knows.
