Riots In England: A Photo Gallery

By Posted on 4 1 m read 26 views

You know it’s time to stop about talking about fashion and how to match outfits and block colours when more pressing things like riots and unrest are happening around you. After three days of rioting ( by who knows who),  the streets of most cities in England are covered by armed officers. The violence was sparked by the police shooting of a man that left many angry and confused. Riots are typically ‘contagious’. People tend to copy violent habit despite the fact that they might not even have a clue about what caused the unrest in the first place. Which is exactly what is going on here. What started off in London has (in the space of three days) spread to Birmingham , Nottingham and Liverpool. It is suspected that the riots might continue on to other towns and cities due to its copy cat nature. But the police are already taking preventive measures against any such conniving.

Whatever the case, rioting or violence is not the answer, has never been.

    Sometimes rioting and violence can work ..it can bring out the problems and maybe things will be worked on. i know from the past that some issues were resolved through action..but there will always be reaction to living circumstances in the world !

        yeah i know its scary ..its scary for the cops scary for innocent bystanders and scary too for the people involved sometimes.but its nessecary sometimes unfortunatly…when i was young I was in many many riots and demonstrations was many times scary. Just what I always hated is the pure thugs who join in and have no ideals just destruction ..they are the ones who destroy a lot of public opinions
