Very tough situation. The Met polcie have had an "annus horribulus" so far. And in a very important year. BUT.....the media are partly to blame. They pounce on every single thing that a polcieman does wrong, and therefore the polcie fear that they can't do their job properly for politics.

As a result, the youths know they can get away with it, because they just do not fear the law.

Itw as only a metter of time.

Next stop............rubber bullets and / or the forces.

I say we dust off and nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

It is really difficult for the police. There were complaints that they took up to 2 hours to respond but imagine if this spread to Swansea tonight and someone called the police - they're not going to go in until they're mob handed and equiped.

They're deploying extra police but what if they sent all South Wales police officers to Swansea and it kicked off in Cardiff and then Newport. We just don't have enough back-up if this spreads.

Great advert for the Olympic city!

If they diverted police from other cities outside London then it leaves those areas unprotected. If, for instance, they draft in Suffolk police then what if this spreads to Ipswich? Same for Thames Valley who need to protect cities like Reading and Oxford.

This is a nightmare unless they can contain this.

This pretty much sums it up for me

This is anarchy on a large scale, due to the fact that the modern youth has been brought up in the UK without fear of the law. They know they can go about with their unsocial behaviour unimpeeded with a false and bizzare sense of entitlement. This, though, has taken it to another level.

May hinted that there will be no army sent in as the policing is working (450 arrests and we'll give them a jolly hard slap on the wrist).

I'm afraid this is a consequence of some very liberal laws in the UK.

 
Totally agree with everything you say Abbey ClapClapClapClap

Have you all seen the CCTV footage of a young lad with a backpack who has been injured? They casually saunter up to him and one steals his belongings from the backpack and swagger away.

I'm afraid this scum acutely sums up modern Britain where the lawless rule.
