that lady is a braver man than me..

i got a turkish friend on facebook saying about his family going out with bats (obviously, perpetuating this SFF UK stereotype) and taking it to the rioters.. he IS a tad excitable, so i'm taking it with a pinch of salt but still, sounds mental..

edit: twitter is agreeing with my mate. got a quick chuckle from

Yeah, the Turkish communities have definitely been well organised in their response.

It's nuts how many places it's kicking off.. news or cops can't keep up at all - I've been getting reports in from peeps all over. Also I spoke too soon earlier it seems - very minor but I did see it kick off a little here from my roof (all calm now).

Back, theres loads of shopkeepers and big dudes with sticks on my highstreet, everytime the kids come through they get yelled at.

sounds like a similar thing (but escalated) went down in hackney:


PaulLewis Paul Lewis
Kingsland Road chaotic as Turkish men attack other, predominantly black, youths with sticks, metal barricades and bricks. #hackney


PaulLewis Paul Lewis
Turkish man: "We're protecting our homes. This is war." #hackney

PaulLewis Paul Lewis
Man with stick: "This is Turkish Kurdish area. They come to our shops and we fight them with sticks." #hackney

the english have rioted because the cops raided a house and a lady had a heart attack? that happens every week here. either that or they're shooting someone in the face after they raid the wrong house.

but you get mad props for defending your houses with ninja turtle weapons and cricket bats :)

Now you're just straw manning. I never said I wanted to shoot anybody. I don't want to even hurt them really. But I do want to not get robbed. But what's your (or anyone else who's anti-gun's) solution? Someone breaks into your house and you what? Hand everything over?

And it's not like you just open fire. You draw your gun and tell them to get down on their knees and put their hands on their head and then if they keep coming towards you maybe you have to shoot them. Also a gun doesn't have to be loaded with bullets. A shotgun blast of rock salt will put someone down for the count.

Finally, the only way your friend would get shot by anyone with my beliefs is if she tried to rob or assault me.


I'm not straw manning. Your first impression is "OMG, someone enters your house, what would you do if you couldn't point a gun in their face!"

That's scary.

Has anyone been seriously hurt in these riots yet?

edit: and to answer your question, I *have* had someone come into my house with a gun and demand money, I gave them an empty safe. I'm sure things would have ended up much worse if I started pointing a gun at them. Alas... they got PWNED and we all lived to tell the tale.

no. That was the broadwater farm (an estate near tottenham and wood green) riots (in the 80s) when the police were being massive cunts to any non white person for ages. Then that happened, big riot, police man nearly had his head cut off (google pc blakelock)


this is completely different
