There are some big riots going on in England right now
 
There are some big riots going on in London in Tottenham right now. I don't know if you are seeing it on the news. It is supposedly about a guy that got shot by the police a couple of days ago. There is a bus on fire and police cars on fire and builds too. There is looting and eight police officers have been put in hospital.

It has been going on for a few hours now. It is still going on.

What's the big deal about the police shooting and killing that guy? He was probably threatening the police officers and the police responded with justified deadly force.

You're right, it was probably just some gangbanger.

BUT, BUT, BUT the riot was very significant I believe and it's going to be one of many happening all around the western world over the coming years. The youth are slowly starting to realise what's happening (economic wise) and how they've been sold down the road by the politicians.

All a riot needs is a spark to get going and usually that spark has nothing to do with the underlying problem.
