The worst part about that video is that he already has a broken jaw so if he tried defending himself he would be ****ed

F*cking martial law. If you really want to infringe on civil liberties and make the world into a 1984 style world with no freedom what so ever then that's up to you. But dude, that is not a way I want to live. National security will be more important than individual rights. This is exactly what Obama etc are working towards.
Nah dude martial law is needed when the civilian government/authority fail to maintain authority and security. The military regains order and then they leave and everything goes back to normal, minus the riots and stuff. It'd probably be for like a week. If the police fail the next option would be to call in the military etc.

With people generally being allowed to carry guns there would be many deaths by now on all sides.

"Yes," said the young man. "You wouldn't be talking to me now if we didn't riot, would you?"

The TV reporter from Britain's ITV had no response. So the young man pressed his advantage. "Two months ago we marched to Scotland Yard, more than 2,000 of us, all blacks, and it was peaceful and calm and you know what? Not a word in the press. Last night a bit of rioting and looting and look around you."
"

There is peaceful protest, there is rioting (Like the French, they aren't happy they "riot", set some bins on fire, kick police cars etc, for a day and get what they want then go home) but there is actually NO point in this riot. Innocent people are being assaulted, homes and shops are being burned to the ground and in some cases the local government aren't acknowledging it as a riot so the insurance won't fully pay out (got that from BBC news earlier, will try to find a link) resulting in innocent peoples lives in ruins and over what?

A guy got shot from the police. A guy who from the looks of things didn't fire a gun, but had one in his possession and was justifiably shot by police.

So what are they trying to get into the public eye exactly?


Thanks to Leakler for the sig

Why are they rioting in England? All I've heard was a drug dealer shot a cop with an illegal gun and the cops killed him and people were pissed. This is literally what I've heard.

Owning guns doesn't mean more murders, it means less robbing. America may be high on the murder w/firearm list, but it's nowhere to be seen on the overall murder per capita list.

Anti gun people use that murder w/firearm stat like they know what they're talking about, when in reality, most places are way more dangerous when people can't defend themselves.

Well, I look at it like this, if five guys are breaking into my home with bats and knives and I don't have a gun there's gonna be one death, with a gun there will be five. I much prefer the five ;D

But the brits are on the money. After my 12guage, glock 23, 45acp and 357mag I'd choose a bat as my next option. For protection that's a huge gap, a bat is shit to a gun, wish I could loan em out to some uk members

Bunch of thieves and vandals trying to take home an lcd or an ipod.
I say, give each cop a shotgun with rubber bullets and let then fire away.

On the other side, these are the consequences of accepting an endless number of immigrants,
let then work for penny's and give then no rights.

I´m afraid this is just the beginning, if the immigrant lower classes in France, Spain, Italy
and perhaps German arise to revolt, it will be catastrophic.

I don't know what to say about all of this! I am just reading about all of this and piecing everything together best I can, but if this was all meant to be a protest against anything, it has failed horribly. It's ******* chaos out there.. I can't imagine.
