"Police hold black men responsible for more than two-thirds of shootings and more than half of robberies and street crimes in London, according to figures released by Scotland Yard. The statistics released under Freedom of Information laws have provoked a debate about the racial make-up of violent crime in the capital.
It found that 67 per cent of those caught by police for gun crimes were black." (Daily Mail 27Jun 2010)

or the unarmed teenager shot? (which started the protests that turned into riots)
I have known many gang members. They were children of illegal immigrants. Their parents came after the disaster of NAFTA and the slavery type corporate jobs down there that occured while Americans lost their jobs. I have seen their anger after years of feeling hopeless.
What I am saying is a crime is a crime is a crime. Certain crimes we write off and ignore, which causes the steam kettle to rise. Then in revenge others commit crimes. When all is lost, it will unfortunately become a clash of the poor against the middle class merchant for the spoils of what is left.
The Sikhs are on tv calling for local discussion and solidarity----they are smart. I am sure there are many great pastors in the UK who need our prayers. Globalism can't sufficiently take the place of local community.
This is globalism. Local economy -- access to land is access to future. Many of these families would probably gladly return to their homelands if there was land and an economy to return to. Neo-feudalism.
"We need strong families instilling children with values of personal responsibility. It is high time our political leaders stopped undermining marriage and the family"
And so we do!! But is it too late for the UK?
Murder of the unborn child carried out remorselessly by this society. Morals now come from homosexuals, described by God as an abomination. The national Churches CofS/CofE are no more Christian than Satan is, indeed Satan wouldn't dare challenge God to the extent these hypocrites do daily. Adultery is not only rife but has become a pastime in parts of society. Government legislates in favour of evil practices. Bishops reject the Word and the Law of God and clearly cannot identify sin.
Therefore the riots are a natural activity in a lawless society.
