Calling the Army is always the last resort. We only have a small army here.
Maybe what we need is a water Cannon but we have not got one in England, but Ireland has.
Perhaps we could use the fireman's hoses, then they would have to go home soaking wet.
Byestanders should be hosed with the garden hoses.
Tazers and rubber bullets not a good idea...most are young School Children and youths.
Trouble got nearer to me..."Sony" Depo in Waltham Abbey in Essex, 15 minutes away was set alight.
Must be petrol cocktails...not sure. Could not have been a box of matches.
I am baffled by the scale of it. Birmingham and other cities also affected.
Tesco in Enfield which use to be the old Savoy Cinema was set alight.
Now that is not a poor district. Nor is Ealing in London,
The youth are well dressed they have no need to loot.
It's just mindless Burglary and thuggery.
No thought is given to peoples lives.
Opportunist...jumping on the bandwagon.
Human Nature is to go the extra mile to get something for nothing.
The laws of Health and Safety are impeding things as well.
A Policeman can't even save a man drowning in a pond unless it is a trained person to do the job....
(I kid you not) it happened recently in Harlow.
It amazes me how quickly the fires spread.
They are now pulling the carpet store down in Tottenham because it is unsafe.
It use to be called Herod's and was a Listed building and part of Tottenham's Heritage.
People living in 26 flats above now homeless.
Tottenham Hotspure football match is due to take place Saturday,
so I do not know what will happen their.
WE Need the Police for these riots.
The Wembly friendly match from Holland is cancelled.
A lot of tickets were sold.
Mindless Yobs are causing havoc. Hooded Hoodlums with no sense of discipline enjoying themselves at the expense of others.
Shop Keepers are closing early at 3 PM
Large stores and small shopkeepers are affected.
The main Road to Tottenham is deserted of traffic....The old Hertford Road.
Which is a very long straight Roman Road.
Buses are just sailing through.
Getting too close to Harlow Essex for comfort.....
Enfield, Tottenham ect; Where I lived as a child.
Police surprised by the hatred. People onTwitter... On the Net was exciting the young ones to come and join in.
This is against the law and they will also be prosecuted.
Mobs of 200 young people aged between 14 and 20...they would suddenly split up and move in different directions.
The Police would not let the fire engines through
Because the firemen could not be protected.
On the first day not enough Police who were taken by surprise.
More Police are now drafted into the areas. 6,000 last night increased to 16000 tonight.
The jail cells are full, so these rioters are being sent out of Town.
