Can anyone give some proper context as to what caused these riots? Whatever the original intention was seems to have been lost already.
Well, despite it being all over the news... Tottenham is an area with a long history of racial tension. Sort of like Bed-Stuy in New York or Oakland, CA. Unemployment is high and the humiliations of poverty abundant, police search and seize pedestrians liberally, and to top it off, they shot a black guy to death last week. This is no way excuses the brutality of what's going on there, but that's why its happening.
I really hope it doesn't happen here.
It seems more economic than racial. Most of the pictures I've seen of rioters seem to be a fairly even mix of black, white and middle eastern looking people.

I'm glad shit like that isn't happening here.
I'd go to jail after painting the place up with 3'' buck slugs.
... and I'd enjoy it.

Needs a "chavs" tag.

That's pretty rotten. Evil tag earned.

Oh, good, the overwhelming hatred I've been feeling for humanity lately hasn't been misplaced.
