    It's hit Birmingham now too. It's disgusting.

  2. 2

    They now have ghettos pigs in London. It sounds just like Oakland.

  3. 3

    im from the uk , and it has nothing to do with Mark Duggan , its just mindless thugs using it as an excuse ,

  4. UKBoy says – reply to this


    That pic of a woman jumping from a burning building is NOT London. The road signs are not British!

  5. 5

    Im so embarassed to be english right now

  6. 6

    we can not call it " vandalism" when they're destroying stuff in order to get attention for their causes. they're protesting! that's what we should do in America, unfortunately, we're too dumb in order to demand our rights! No wonder America is rotting right now!

  7. 7

    agree with @chrstian peoples homes are being burnt down !! its horrific.

  8. 8

    Re: Alexima – its pure vandalism, if it was at all about politics they would not be destroying small family run shops and burning peoples houses etc ! most sane people in the uk are disgusted by whats happening.

  9. 9

    Re: Alexima – Then move to London and join the rioting bitch……get the fuck outta here!

  10. 10

    I live 7 miles away from Birmingham and there are riots there too…..

  11. 11

    Re: an idiot abroad – no, vandalism is when they destroy without a reason to destroy it. in this case, they're protesting the fact a man was "executed" by the police, and believe me, if you loose your father, or a brother, execution style, you would burn your own house in protest.

  12. 12

    Fears over safety in 2012? I wouldn't worry about that. I'm caught right in the middle of these riots and I can tell you these kids will get bored before too long. I just hope it's sooner rather than later.

  13. 13

    Alexima, you are you are an idiot!! Thats what we should do in America??? what rock do you live under???

  14. 14

    Re: GayRay – please dont suggest that, we dont need another idiot ruining peoples homes :(

  15. 15

    I wish perez would have posted the background to this story.. Like why are they upset about the guys death.. was he killed by a cop accidentally.. great now I have to go google the whole story from a reliable source LOL

  16. 16

    Re: Alexima – have you actually seen any of the news footage ?? sounds like you dont have a clue whats going on over here. not gonna waste my time on you.

  17. 17

    Re: Alexima – seriously. there is nothing to protest, the riots here are nothing to do with that shooting. The idiots in birmingham who have decided to destroy the city centre this evening have absolutely no connection to what has happened in London, they're just doing it because they can. Maybe get your facts right before you go praising this idiocy in any way?

  18. 18

    It's crazy. my sister moved back home from london last week but had to go back down this morning for work and her old street is destroyed.

  19. 19

    Everyone HATES a police officer until they need one. Those rioters should be shot!

  20. 20

    Re: imogenemary – sure. and the world is flat…

  21. 21

    tbh they should have the army involved by now.

  22. 22

    it has spread throughout London and out to the suburbs. Croydon is up in flames but it's gang violence from mindless youths. People turning on people, there is no real reason for the arson or looting, if you are going to protest then protest, don't destroy your community and people's homes. It's disgusting.

  23. 23

    The riot is no longer about the death of that man. People are just doing it for the sake of it so they can loot shops. It's disgusting. Even more so by the fact that most of the people involved in it are foriegners who contribute nothing to the country. This country needs much more disciplin.

  24. 24

    Re: Alexima – No you wouldn't. Innocent people have lost all their belongings and their home. They have no where to live. And the rioters are random people who didn't even know the guy who died. It's fucking disgutsting.

  25. 25

    Re: Alexima – so the jist of what you are saying is that because a criminal got shot by the police that excuses the burning of innocents peoples homes, stealing, attacking police and firemen trying to put out fires, burning down buildings which is going to leads to hundreds of people being left unemployed ?? you really dont have a clue whats happening.

  26. 26

    Re: Alexima – are you serious? the scum doing this are mindless idiots who do nothing for society, and are bored. they have destroyed peoples homes, their livelihoods and bought shame to england and its youth. i'll be glad when the lot of them are rounded up and sent to jail, though they deserve far worse than that

  27. 27

    Re: Alexima – your an moron ! , the guy who died in fact shot at the police first so he was shot dead as a result perfectly fair , but its beside the point the people doing this are not doing it for him they are looting shops ( basically the chavs just seeing a easy opp for theft and mindless desruction , get a clue mate

  28. 28

    It doesn't matter what the cause is or what is true or not about it - destroying people's property and putting their lives in dangerous is NEVER the answer and is NEVER acceptable. Remember MLK Jr., people….

  29. 29

    Syrian President Assad is on his way to assist the Brits with crackdown.

    Actually……its a chance for the have nots to get back at the haves.
    Can and will happen right here in the USA.

  30. 30

    Re: Alexima – You think attacking police officers and burning down innocent people's homes and businesses that they work hard for is a good thing? You're just as ridiculous, ignorant and uneducated as they are. And no they're not protesting and rioting because Mark Duggan got shot. And no offence mate, but you don't live in England so you don't know everything, so i would just shut up if i was you, because you haven't got a clue.

  31. 31

    perez you stupid fucking idiot. that picture is NOT London.

  32. 32

    The whole thing is disgusting. People are losing their homes, just because greedy rioters who probably really didn't know the reason for the protest to begin with decided it was a perfect time for them to cause shit.

  33. 33

    most of my friends live in london. one of my friends lives in peckham and she is having asthma attack because of the smoke coming from burning cars and buildings. my other friend is unable to leaver her house in clapham because rioters have taken to the streets surrounding her. she can't sleep. neither of these areas are in north london where the shooting of mark duggan took place. he was a potential threat to police. There is absolutely NO justification for violence like this. this isn't a political stand. these are people that have come used to pushing boundaries and getting away with it. and now they're trying this final one. Don't try and excuse these thugs. They are destroying the community and the economy. I'm not religious, but seriously 'love thy neighbour' don't set fire to their business.

  34. 34

    this is what happens when whole sections of society are left to fester in forgotten parts of a city. what have they got to lose from doing all this?

  35. 35

    What happened was that this guy Mark, a 29 year old GANGSTER was being followed by the police, when he became aware that he was being followed by the police he opened fire on them, he shot one of the policemen and so the policeman shot back, killing him. Fair enough.

  36. 36

    Re: MsJules – The guy was a ganster being followed by the police, when he became aware that he was being followed by the police, he opened fire on them, he shot a policeman and the policeman shot back, killing him.

  37. 37

    I heard the reason for the riot is because of cher lloyds single topping the charts in the UK ..

  38. 38

    The "father of four" that everyone is calling him was a gang banger. Look it up. He actually had shot a cop. These are just more ghetto trash acting like they do no matter where they live.

    Why is the media protecting this thug? He is nothing a gang banging thug. Call him what he is.

  39. 39

    people need to do what they're doing in London in order to show the government who's the boss! people should not be afraid of the government, the government should be afraid of people!

  40. 40

    Re: AaronC – you are seriously so stupid. The riot IS in London and Birmingham. How is it not in London?

  41. 41

    Why aren't they doing this to that HORRIBLE, EVIL, and GREEDY FAMILY at Buckingham Palace?

  42. 42

    Re: Alexima – RIGHT ON!

  43. 43

    where can we get the whole story and the truth of this event?

  44. 44

    Alex~ who pays for the damage from these people ? What the government should so is open fire on them. They are destroying homes, cars, etc. because a thug got shot. That is just crazy.

  45. 45

    Re: BraveRadin – think hes on about the picture of the woman jumping out the window, lots of people thinking its not real coz the road signs arent engligh but appaz has just been confirmed that it is and that there tram signs in croydon

  46. 46

    Re: Alexima – Your comments are so very naive. You must young with no worldly experience. I'm still trying to figure out how destroying homes & stealing a telly will "show the government who's the boss!"

  47. 47

    better have houses destroyed now, and government noticing people's dissatisfaction with facism then have their cancer treatment denied for "pre-existing" condition in the future and then selling the house just to pay the co-payments, like we do in America.

  48. 48

    Re: Alexima – Are you serious? You have to be very young and naive to make a comment like that. No one deserves to have their house burned down, let alone burned down to show the government that you don't like what they are doing.

    This world is in deep trouble and Alex, I am afraid it is people like you who are making it worse.

  49. 49

    It seems like there have been several riots or violent protests in the UK in the last couple of years. What is going on over there that people feel the need to protest. Even more so what is wrong with the people who choose to use those moments to loot and vandalize things. Are things really that bad. What is going on in the government to stop the feelings of strife? Lets just hope it doesn't become contagious. We don't need another L.A. Riot domino effect. There are other ways to be heard.

  50. 50

    Re: Alexima – cant believe im even bothering to right here…this has absolutely nudda to do with the government, ive spoken to some youngins and their bored, their angry, and this is fun for them. there is no concern for the well being of anyone else or the government. they dont know shit, or even give one! they are happily robbing and attacking innocent bystanders, its all just clockwork orange. there is not logical reasoning behind it. its just fun for them. come here and see it for your bloody self! we have had ENOUGH of it

  51. 51

    Re: pinkywhitehead – Hood rats and thugs will riot and loot no matter where they live. Look at the people in New Orleans. They were stealing and shooting at the helicopters bringing in the medical supplies. They destroyed a stadium. Compare that to Japan with their Tsunami. Not one case of looting. As a matter of fact, they would stand in line for water and food and if they got theirs and saw a senior citizen waiting in line, the young people would hand their food to the seniors. Here in the USA the hood rats would have stole the food from the seniors.

    We have created generations of people who feel we "owe them".

    Hood rats feel they are entitled to handouts and commit crimes because the laws do not pertain to them.

  52. 52

    I'm from Croydon, but I live in Ireland. We've spent 3 days watching this shit unfold. My whole family is there, terrified. Honest, hardworking innocent people are being hurt by stupid, moronic wankers. They're using some guys death to steal, vandalize and burn buildings.

    What i dont understand is that if they're 'protesting' against the Police unlawfully shooting Mark Duggan, then WTF are they doing hurting innocent people for? Isnt that what theyre protesting against?????


  53. 53

    Re: pinkywhitehead – the problem is that this isnt a protest now. its a mindless riot and the scum of the uk have taken advantage of a bad situation. most the people that are out looting are teens who are just seeing this as an oppurtunity to steal. the riots have now spreak to the north. its got nothing to do with the government anymore. and that was pretty much proven when a group of 14yr olds stole a tv and said it was for tax reasons. they have no idea what theyre talking about. its just disgusting whats going on, not to mention worrying.

  54. 54

    Re: Louiise – well said, hope your family are ok. riots have spread to leeds and lpool now as well :/ so shocked by whats going on

  55. 55

    It's disgusting what is happening in London. Black thugs stealing, burning cars, homes, looting - they can go back to Africa if they don't like England. England was stupid and naive to let so many immigrants from Asia, Africa and Carribean after the war. Now they are paying for it. This guy Dugan tried to shoot the policeman (the bullet was lodged in his radio) so he unfortunately died in the shootout. He was not an angel, but a criminal. Of course his black family and black "friends" accused police of "police brutality". The whole thing looks like Los Angeles riots in 1992. I will never forgive the blacks for this riot. They burned shops in their neighborhood and then later blamed the government why there were not food markets in their neighborhood. It was racism to them. B…t - they burned it down, that's why.

  57. 57

    This is sick…I'm sorry but people get killed and shot everyday and there is no riot about it! Sad but true, so I don't see the point of doing a riot for a guy that was killed by police officer…don't get me wrong, it's very sad that he is dead but violence is never the answer!!!

  58. 58

    Re: CUM-DuMPzter – LOL!!!!!!

  59. 59

    Re: Alexima – you are seriously fucking stupid.. innocent people suffer because dumbass thugs are showing the government who's boss and that's how you do it huh? All in the name of some moronic gangster, who deserved it.. Well, if there ever is a riot in America i sure hope you're in the middle of it..maybe they'll even open fire..wonder if you would still think it was a good idea if it was your house that got burnt down or your family or you got shot, all in the name of "showing the government who's boss"!? Yeah …what a crackhead comment.. if you are not happy here go the fuck somewhere else dumbass..

    Re: Daniel Cactus – wow..racist much -.-

  61. 61

    This was going to happen sooner or later with all the government cuts etc, it has been brewing and brewing for days it was once a tiny protest turned into a riot because of people seeking violence. This whole Mark Duggen thing is just an excuse for all this to happen, i think the government really need to stop saying how 'this violence is unexceptionable' and get out their trying to help the emergency services, its the emergency services i feel sorry for

  62. 62

    Re: Daniel Cactus – GTFO of here you racist piece of shit. I feel bad for the innocent bystanders and people's homes/shops/cars getting burned down, but i won't feel bad for you if your shit got burned down.

  63. Merab says – reply to this


    oh lovely…I´ve been there last night ..it´s so much fun…hehe

  64. 64

    Re: christian – You're right. The friends and family of Duggan had a peaceful protest and march, and then thugs with no affiliation to them have turned this into their own, disgusting need to create chaos and violence. It's appalling and it needs to stop. And now it's spreading elsewhere in the UK. Every hooded youth thinks it's their chance to get a new TV. I'm disgusted.

  65. 65

    Re: Alexima – It's not a protest at all! Read the news. The man was shot by police after he shot at an officer; it was NOT an execution. These people have ZERO concern for the victim. They only care about themselves and what goods they can steal. The people rioting are NOT dissatisfied with the government - they're the people who live on the dole and without the government, they'd be homeless and starving in the streets. They want new TVs and to act like assholes. Nothing more.

  66. 66

    Re: Daniel Cactus – Look at the news. Most of them are white.

  67. 67

    Re: Daniel Cactus – I can see that you've had a lot of minority folks do you wrong in your life. But just because a certain group of of them hurt you, or something that you love, doesn't mean that you can go and judge an entire race, or an entire nationality. You wouldn't want them doing that to you, now would you??

  68. 68

    This story is really making me sick to my stomach. And to think- i'm across the pond. Imagine how the folks that are actually experiencing it feel??

    I just hope that everything dies down soon, and that people stay safe. Especially the British readers from this site- y'all take care, ok?? Many of us over in the U.S. will be thinking about y'all.

  69. 69

    Perez, your picture of the woman jumping out of a building isn't even in the UK!!!

    Daniel Cactus, it has been confirmed by the police that the bullet in the policemans radio was a bullet from a policemans gun and the force have said that so far they do not know if the police short first, or if Duggan did. I guess you hate all white people too for their continued violence in northern Ireland, you should note that being white also guarantee's that you do not have complete british decent, look at your family tree, you will have masses of foreign blood.

  70. 70

    Re: Alexima – Damn, you can quote V for Vendetta, now you must know what you are talking about. Oh wait, no you don't because this is not some comic book, it's REAL life, with REAL people get fucked over by stupid idiots.

  71. 71

    Re: christian – No the man did NOT shoot at the police first. The bullet found in the EXECUTIONER cop's radio was from his COLLEAGUE's gun. The victim never opened fire.

  72. 72

    It's absolutely disgusting - both the riots themselves and the vague response. The Government is so desperate to keep the Human Rights Club happy that they're forgetting the rights of the victims who have lost homes, businesses and livelihoods. No justice whatsoever. Bring out the water canons and the army, I say, and restore the order that the good majority of England deserve.

  73. 73

    Re: Alexima – There is NO excuse for what they are doing. The 'Community leaders' can bleat on about their lack of benefits and commodities being the cause of this as much as they like, but no amount of so called 'unfair treatment' can ever justify what these thugs have done. They've destroyed the livelihoods, businesses and families of the innocent hardworking population and it's appalling. They are mindless scum taking advantage of a relatively low key situation.

  74. 74

    Re: Alexima – You have no idea what you are talking about whatsoever. You are evidently not from the UK, and have seen the news either purely though Perezhilton.com or some other uninformed source. What is happening in London IS. NOT. RIGHT. Get that in your head - nothing excuses the fear and violence that they are instilling in the general population. You say they have a cause - this man that was shot, I presume? NO. He shot at the police, they retaliated. Perhaps it shouldn't have happened. Well, alright then. BUT. The protest was peaceful until the anarchists/thugs/yobs arrived and started burning INNOCENT PEOPLE's homes and livelihoods. Just like in the Student Protests earlier in the year (if you heard about them) These thugs purely took advantage of a situation to get a bit of loot and cause a bit of mayhem, and because the police were slow to respond it has gone out of control. NOTHING MORE.

    If it were truly an act of 'justice' and 'protest for a genuine cause' surely the majority of the British public would be on their side? Well we're not - that would be obvious to you if you listened to and read the comments of the British public opinion.

    Get your facts straight. You may think they are 'anarchist warriors' or whatnot but the rest of us (including those who are actually involved in the area) see them as nothing.

  75. 75

    It's hilarious how the death of Amy Winehouse got more coverage on your site than these riots.

    Re:Pam's Triple-Filled Silicone Breasts
    Fucking idiot, the Royal Family have nothing to do with anything that happened, it started out as a problem with the police and now has turned into mindless copycat rioting. Shut up about the Royal Family.

    Re: Alexima – they're not showing anyone that they're the boss. they're just intimidating all the other citizens. people are afraid leaver there homes. I'm afraid to go into London even though I have to.

  79. 79


    It is. I have just come across it in a yahoo.co.uk article and it also appears in The Times. It's Croydon.

    Better apologise to Perez now..

  80. 80

    lets just clear a few things up:
    1 - the pic of the woman jumpin out the window is deffo from london. It happened last night in Croyden.
    2 - lets not call them protesters, please!! Protesters normally have a legitimate reason for their actions, and these midless idiots have none.
    3 - the rioters are NOT doing it because if the man that was shot by the police last week - the mob is made of mainly teenage youths who will use any excuse to destroy, damage and burn.
    4 - these thuggish vandals deserve absolutley no sympathy! The sooner they bring in the army to control it, the better. I have never agreed to the american way of policing before…but now i understand why the cops over there are allowed to carry guns and shoot people. Ours should be allowed to do this, too!
    5 - Today i am truly EMBARRASSED to be English!!

  81. 81

    Re: Voivode

    I live in Croydon where the picture is supposedly from, I can assure you it is not croydon, even on the local radio today the presenters were talking about how this picture was on various sites stated as Croydon when it is in fact not even in Britain, a family did have to be rescued by window (a few yards from my home) however they were rescued with the use of ladders, they didn't jump!

    Re: Daniel Cactus – ignorant arse!! yuo clearly have no clue wat ur talkin about so its best you shut up

  83. 83

    Re: Daniel Cactus – guess you havent heard about the turkish cummunity who were amongst the only people who managed to drive the looters away and stood up and protected ldn !!

  84. 84

    FUCK THE ANARCHISTS! They have no idea how to properly solve issues and insist on resorting to violence. They've joined up with the chavs who have a "fuck the police" attitude and only want to steal what isn't theirs. They're not punishing the rich and the government - they're punished the common working man. The businesses of struggling shop owners have burned down due to them and they've created an even greater burden on the working man. What they're doing is not doing any good and no one respects their cause. You want to protest budget cuts - go to Parliament Square and hold a god damned sign. Don't burn down the city. Idiots!

  85. 85

    Re: nessah – Oh. Oops. At least I'm not the only one that made the mistake.

  86. 86

    Re: Serena Loves Mario – Exactly. I have no idea what they think they will achieve. Well, I take that back. None of them want to 'achieve' anything, despite what excuses they're throwing out there. As one of the looters ignorantly tweeted, "nothing says equality and freedom like a 52 inch flat screen tv!" Yes. That is the idiocy mindset of the mob. They are vandals and nothing more.

  87. 87

    That picutre is London mabye not Croydon but it is London, reported so on the BBC. There is no excuse for this distruction, it could probably be guranteed that not one of those people know or care who Mark Duggan is. All they want is to cause the highest level of distruction, they are not opperating for a cause they are just acting in this awful way simply because they feel like they can.

  88. 88

    Re: Voivode – Reading the news reports and the comments from the looters sickens me. It's a shame that they're tarnishing the reputation of our country. I hope the violence ceases, but unfortunately it seems like it's only spreading. They're using any excuse they can to destroy our cities, simply so they can get a new pair of trainers or a new TV. They're not just destroying businesses, they're destroying homes and robbing people in the street. Some of them are anti-government and against the wealthy, but what does burning down the home of a struggling family accomplish? It makes them look like a bunch of selfish assholes! Words can't express my disgust at the situation.

    @ THALIA (my last post posted as half a quote; which I am assuming is because there is an error with the HTML response quote.. weird) Thank you! I read a post from somewhere online (i forget but it was a UK source) and it was actually a really well put together article with images MUCH BETTER then the ones Perez posted that show the true extent of the damages and the injured people. It is truly disgusting that people feel like ruining a city is avenging the death of someone- especially when they have no details and most of the people who were doing the rioting aren't even linked to the issue. The article went on to to talk about how people were tweeting telling people to go there and one even said something along the lines of i hope we get one of theirs (as in a cop) too. It was disgusting and the pictures were truly heartbreaking. Funny how most of the buildings they targeted were buildings with electronics and other beneficial items. Violence is never the response or the answer. Thank you again for responding.

    Notice how nearlly on all the new channels all the clips are of black people ! Now im not racist but when it comes to london and crime its always the black thugs! Disguting! Shud gt them out

    Re: mattihilton – I wouldn't buy into the media too much.. typically (especially in the states) they tend to play off stereotypes… they find the most ignorant people to question and try to make people look stupid. The media plays off fear and many people (this is NOT MY opinion as I do not feel this way) are afraid of black people and have been brought up thinking they are dangerous and the media glorifies this.

  95. 95

    Re: Alexima – The rioters have admitted it's nothing to do with that. They're not protesting. They're doing it supposedly because of taxes. Because they're mindless. Because they are sheep. They're attacking innocent people in their own homes because they think they're owed something by those who work hard to pay their bills. It's sick.

  98. 98

    Re: Daniel Cactus – It must be so sad to be you blaming a whole race on a problem which affecting everyone, you really do not think that there are any other races looting apart from black people. You must have an iq of about 20, you do not possess the ability to differentiate between common sense and your clearly brainless and xenophobic views. I bet you are that same hypocritical and contradictory racist that is going on eating Chinese food, tanning yourself until you are charcoaled, injecting your lips to make them fuller , oh what from you previous comments I see you like Chris Brown , ummm got news for you he is black. I will say this on behalf of British Black people fuck off back to your prehistoric cave you red neck, hanging, nobhead, wanker & poor excuse of a chavtastic human being.

  99. 99

    Re: linn1000 – I agree. The VAST majority of the rioters are white. It's a mixture of white chavs that see nothing wrong with looting, burning down businesses and setting cars alight simply for fun and free stuff; and the asshole anarchists, who try to turn everything into a violent anti-government protest and have ruined peaceful protests repeatedly. I'm glad it's settled down and it's amazing to see the amount of support the community has provided towards the clean-up effort. I agree with David Cameron's opinion of this situation - that it's "sick".

  100. 100

    People saying this is not London are idiots….yes it is London and I've seen the lady who jumped in the news and she was from London and it did happen in London so get your facts straight! @UKBoy
    And Mark Duggan NEVER shot at the police they shot at him for no reason but this behaviour is stupid and innocent people shouldn't be targeted.
