Well, they can just hold the 2012 Olympics in China again.

They got crowd management under control.

I said crime not arrests, and who are you to call me a moron. You actually lowered yourself to verbal abuse. You obviously cant accept fact.

Maybe not, but it's called for when it's blatant.

‪Truly extraordinary speech by fearless African Woman in face of Hackney London rioters - A MUST SEE.‬‏ - YouTube

More people need to confront them. When all is said and done, most of these rioters will be in jail, and hope the streets will be cleaner than before. Take a negative into a positive. Of course that won't help all the lost businesses and the money that will need to be spent to replace everything, but it's a step.

These are youths from poor areas who probably have little to no education, maybe high school dropouts. They have nothing to lose, and now they're together. Now... how do you fix that? Creating more jobs so people make money and have a future helps prevent these from starting. (easier said than done apparently) A lot of the looters though just are being greedy and stupid.

No such reporting category exists; the UK breaks down criminal justice data into stops and searches, arrests, cautions, prosecutions, and sentencing. All of those are broken down by race in the report Earnie linked; in no case is there anything remotely approaching the 80% figure you cited. Perhaps the reporter misspoke, or perhaps you somehow misinterpreted what s/he said.

This is getting pretty off-topic though.

That question is worthy of many facepalms.

Also, hearing about these things saddens me so much. Unsurprising that the woman tried to shut him up. Good on the uploader.

Do you think your "black friends" know this about you? Why would you so adamantly defend this incorrect generalization of yours?

Really strong words, calling me a liar. All my friends agree with me on my view about the riots. Because am right, i have first hand experience of the riots, i have seen them with my own eyes where i work.
