London's burning and it's spreading across the country

If you haven't already heard about the troubles in England right now then this should give you an idea:

This is a post for all those people who are rioting in Manchester, Liverpool, London, Nottingham, Wolverhampton and anywhere else in England. You should be ashamed of yourselves. You think stealing, arson and abuse will solve anything? It won't! There are people fighting for their lives in war torn countries across the world right now, and you are fighting over TVs and Nike trainers. It's disgusting and frightening. 

You think that looting shops and burning down people's businesses makes you a big man/woman? It makes you an ignorant idiot. You are burning shops that families have built up for years, burning buildings that house innocent people and destroying the economy further. I'm all for fighting for a cause, but this is just a free for all. Enough is enough.

Sorry to rant, but i had to get that out. This is terrifying and i hope it stops soon.

Sharing is Good

    I've been catching news on the television and it looks just horrible. I am so sorry. I thought immediately of you and Drake and how tough it must me to have that happening so close to home for you. Unfortunately the "mob mentality" is a strong one and there is no end to what idiots can be talked into believing is a good idea. :(

    My thoughts are with you.

    it's really sad. I always wonder what goes on in the minds of some people.

    I've been catching up on my Twitter feed. It's less heart breaking that way.

    I've never understood why people would participate in a riot like that; it's so destructive and it doesn't do anything good for anyone involved. Maybe the rioters think they're making a "statement", but all that they're expressing is how wrong their actions are.

    I'm pretty sure they can't hear you. They're busy rioting. But other than that, I absolutely agree with what you said!

    Are you English? I didn't know that. O.o

    @Jewels Thanks so much for thinking of us! It was quite bad yesterday, things seemed to have calmed a little today. I hope the police can keep the peace.

    @KitKat I have no idea, they seem to think that they have a right to steal and burn properties. Some are saying that it is a protest but how is stealing goods a protest? To me it's just greed!

    @Cinderita It's crazy on twitter at the moment, but a lot of rioters have been arrested and named through twitter.

    @Neurotic Workaholic I think they are using the word protest as an excuse for anarchy. These few youths need punishment. The economy doesn't need this right now.

    @Pedro Cardoso Yes it will probably fall on deaf ears but i had to get it out, everybody is appalled!

    @Drake Sigar Yes English born and bred. I hope you haven't had much trouble?
