Some Brit rioting/looting links.
Main page from the Telegraph, it’s like a bunch of blog posts of the various lootings and riotings.
Pics from Teh Peepul. Shame about that Miata.
Mouse-over, before and after pics. Kind of cool. Kind of sad.
Tim Blair has a good quote from a WSJ article about some people protecting their neighborhoods
n some instances, skirmishes turned violent. “The police wanted to arrest one of my friends because he punched some of the guys,” said a waiter at the Somine restaurant. “We didn’t let them.”
Possibly the best quote I’ve heard coming out of Britain in years.
Nobody over there cares what the cops say or do anymore. Why should they? From over here it looks as if the police have no legitimacy. Too many instances to really care, but arresting people for protecting themselves over and over and over again while the hoodlums are let off with a warning, well, would you have any respect for those cops?
Now imagine they’re trying to arrest the people who tried to protect their neighborhood from a bunch of hoodlums who just wanted to see it burn.
“We didn’t let them”. Give those folks a knighthood.
Veeshir’s conception of the people trying to stop the rioters below the fold
