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


Well in any case, be safe man...we'd miss the bizarre british slang around here :)

So in the video, I'm not really sure what's going on, a guy is bleeding all over the place and pulling what looks like teeth out of his mouth, and someone walks up and takes the stuff out of his backpack? That's real fucked up.

I don't own a gun. Someone stole my GPS out of my car the other day. I didn't feel any need to shoot them. They weren't rioting, then again, these rioters aren't breaking into houses and attacking people are they?

My employer had someone from the Netherlands come to our company for training. She said that before she came she was extremely worried about the amount of violence she'd run into when she flew in. Her friends wanted her to check in with them regularly and were very concerned about her. Of course, once she actually arrived at the bustling metropolis of Portsmouth, NH, she was relieved that it was no more dangerous than Delft.

From reading this thread, I'd say their fears were probably not unjustified. Apparently the solution to violence in America is simply "shoot them".


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.


LOL thats on some complete fictional ish to me.. i dare say you've never had an armed intruder in your home or dealt directly with a stand over man holding a gun in your house? coz if you had unless your freakin Omar you would understand you could have the biggest gun in the world within your reach and you are still probably going to hand over everything they ask for and call them "sir" whilst doing it.....some random junkie with a knife might be a different story..but in that case you shouldn't need a gun anyways

So... they're rioting and destroying stuff just for fun the fun of it?

Seems very odd. There must be a lot of angry youth in the UK.

@roughtradeshops: Our largest INDEPENDENT supplier Pias got burnt 2 the ground last night, best to all staff,labels that lost stock. no injuries @ least


@PiccadillyRecs: Shocking news about PIAS (the largest independent labels distributor), all stock gone as distribution centre burnt to the ground.

Nothing confirmed/official yet, but it looks like a large number of small indies just went out of business :(
