It seems the Turks are protecting their neighborhoods, the sikh as well and other groups. but the native anglo londoner seem weak and unwilling to fight the looters or work together to protect neighborhoods. http://english.aljazeera.net/news/europe/2011/08/201181042453833564.html Unlike many high streets in the capital, where businesses brought down the shutters in the early afternoon to minimise the risk of looting, many of the the restaurants and shops in Dalston were defiantly open. Although Dalston appears to have stood alone in its resistance to the gangs on Monday, there were reports that other districts had on Tuesday begun following the Turks' lead. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-14472484 The caution comes after hundreds of residents in Southall, Enfield, Hackney and Eltham patrolled their areas. On Tuesday night Sikh men in Southall, many with hockey sticks, stood guard outside a Sikh and a Hindu temple and a mosque following Monday's disorder.
