With high numbers of law abiding citizen of the UK facing direct threat from the unprecedented and mindless lawlessness mob-rule in the UK riots.
It is clear to many of us as we look at our battered and unrecognisible communities that the heart has literally been torn out following repeated nights of the London and UK riots 2011.
Each of us know that the very people who were meant to protect us from the violence and terror, lost control in the attacks which allowed disorder and violence to threaten engulf is all.
But as thousands of extra policemen are put on duty throughout the country to prevent more lives, shops and buildings from being attacked torched and looted, I for one can’t help but wonder what the everyday people of the world must be thinking of the chaos and carnage that has broken out on the streets of the UK leaving thousands of lives shattered.
Below are several views and comments from everyday people around the world regarding the London and UK Riots 2011 in circulation over the internet:
One American wrote:
“As an American, I am reminded of the Los Angeles riots of 1992.
“However, it seems that the rioters in LA had a deeper reason for the instigation of their violence, racism, and that it burned much faster and hotter, coming to a quick end,
“This rioting seems to have its origins in just general discontent over the economic malaise currently plaguing most countries.
“It also smacks the underclasses getting their revenge on the wealthier people in the country.
“I am surprised that a stronger response by the police hasn’t occurred asd it would have done in the US.”
Another U.S. citizen said:
“These looters should try the same thing in the US.
“Here shopkeepers during riots are armed and post signs stating ‘looters will be shot’.
“If water cannons and plastic bullets are used against demonstrators in Northern ireland then why do they hesitate using them in England?”
One ex-pat living in South America said:
“I find it so hard to contain my anger regarding the nanny state in the UK.
“A soft touch with easy access to welfare, a home to ungrateful, hateful, disaffected youths, then add to the mix home-grown impressionalbe simpletons.
“Give too much and then try to take it back.
“Where are the parents of these people to teach true values and responsibilities?”
One person from the Middle East said:
Problems arise in all societies, but look at the British, they are allowing the press to fully cover and report what is happening there.
“That isn’t what happens in Iran, China or Syria.
“Long live the truly democratic country!”
An Asian wrote:
“I used to live in Nottingham and I cannot believe that rioting is happening in the place I used to live.
“I had the impression that the UK was a very peaceful country.”
An African writer said:
“The community and the police have been sitting on a tinderbox for years and the msot recent spark has set the whole thing alight.
“The background to this shooting is down to years of heavy-handed and racist policing with decades of economic neglect.”
A Nigerian wrote:
“I think what I find most surprising is the way the looters are being treated, they have received taps on the wrists Â for all they have done and unfortunately, until they are shown that real consequences exist for their madness, the riots will continue to spread and deaths will rise.
“It is all about a misguided set of youths with the wrong set of values.
“The authorities need to come down on them hard.”
