Mark Duggan handgun tests show conversion into lethal weapon | UK news | The Guardian

Re: London Riots

I also want to comment on how much better the BBC news is compared to ours. By now, we'd have 20 pundits talking about who's the blame, and giving their political views on the situation.

Seemed to work the first time this country formed. I am against the looting though. That's just common thuggery.

Re: London Riots

revolution, with a shadow government in place, is slightly different than burning property and general, mindless destruction.

I agree with that 100%. I was commenting on us really, not so much their situation.

So which parts of riots in the USA are you advocating other than looting?
The burning of private buildings?
Attacking police?
Attacking people in another class?

Keep in mind you are referring to rioting....not a protest march.
