Reporters also seem prime candidates for attack, I believe a number of the BBC reporter's have been attacked.

Fairly insane, it just seems very random violence. At home it's directed at something in Belfast like the 'other side' or state forces as such, but this seems everything and anything.

People trapped in restaurants with bricks coming through windows etc.

Liverpool trouble is not small number of incidents as Sky say. Police being beaten.

It's a difficult situation for the police.

They over-react, and then they're accused of police brutality.

Indeed part of the reason it kicked off is a young girl was allegedly injured by a police charge in Tottenham last night.

It'll probably kick off tomorrow night, but the PSNI boys are much better prepared.

Merseyside police may not want to put themselves in harms way.

There police for a reason, it's what they sign up to do. To be honest the rioters a young thugs rioting in numbers thinking there something there not, trying to remake history. i.e the Toxteth riots 30 years ago. The police need to get off their lazy fat arses and do something. I bet my right arm the rioters dont even know the reason why their rioting.
