England Riots.

First of all I'm sorry to anyone who is annoyed at me for making another thread. It's not my intention to flood the forum or bore people! But to anyone interested...

Anyway, riots have broke out across England, in London, Birmingham, Manchester and my home town Nottingham. I won't go into detail because it's all over the news and if up to date you'll know the news has helped form the debate that is still open, and that's of course what this thread is about. The two key sides are:

1) This is random mindless violence by the worst minority in society. There's no understanding to it, it's out right thuggery, punish them harsh.
2) This violence has been caused by failures in government policy and/or attitudes to the bottom end of society. We need to understand why it has happened. It is wrong but Prevention/cure > punishment

*Obviously there many views inbetween.

OPTIONAL POINTS TO DEBATE.
A) What caused people to resort to such behaviour
B) Why do you agree/disagree with views 1 and 2
C) How well have the police responded
D) How should the Police and/or courts react
E) How do you fix these people or prevent it hapening again.
F) Has Camerons government responded in the right way.

If none of that gets you thinking, let me possibly annoy and say I think Britain should hang its head a shame that its society has produced such youths. Where were all these pro active people filled with condemnation when a kid on their street went off the rails and they had a chance to do a decent thing and try to be a mentor? Community spirit isn't rallying with brooms when your mistakes backfire. its the day to day mundane nonesense that ensures things never get to this point.

Yeah that was absolutely sick. That's good of Sony. Speaking of Sony, they've been one of the biggest victims of it all. Whole distrubution center burnt to cinders - but the Sony Logo Survived at least.

Honestly.

I'm just glad nobody has started rioting in my city yet. Which I'm surprised at due to the amount of low lives living here. I've had texts off people telling me where to meet for the beginning of a riot, at supermarkets and such, but it's all rumors being spread by idiots. I really think it's sick how people have died and been severely injured, not to mention the businesses that have been lost all due to one police officer trying to do his job, whether it was wrong or not. It shouldn't be settled like this, it's ridiculous.

This isn't just violence. It's hundreds of people in a lot of big cities destroying businesses, robbing people & businesses, killing and seriously injuring people. It isn't just the average theft or GBH.
