A very popular post from on YouTube is making the rounds. This is a Londoner lashing out at the terrible and senseless violence by his fellow citizens shortly after the riots began. The money quote:
"What's pissing me off more, right, is the way police have to handle this. They have to sit back and watch this so nobody gets hurt. Fuck that. Get in there. I want the police in this nation to be like the Italians and the Americans. They see trouble, their first fall of action isn't "oh, God, don't let me hurt somebody," it should be "let me batter the fuck out of that bloke so he doesn't do it again."
The wounds this destructive anarchy is deepening will not soon be healed.
