Nearly three centuries ago Great Britain could send anti-social elements to the farer most lands of Americas, Canada & Australia. England has a different scene when we look at the rioters looting shops and burning infrastructue, blaming the government for lack of welfare, Today even containing these rioters is a difficult task for the police. Great Britain which could manage one of the largest empire in the history is currently unable to manage these hundreds of oportuntistic criminal rioters.
While one family sits on the throne and luxuriously enjoys the tax payers benifits and even get the royal wedding paid by people. One the other hand the common middle class man or woman is still struggling to make ends meet. I am speaking of the common man or woman who slogs their butt day and night to earn a respectable living for their family and pay taxes for the government to survive and also supports the thousands of unemployed people living on welfare. Many bloggers and media personnel have gone to great length to mention that these so called rioters are immigrants. Well these media broadcasters or half educated bloggers are wrong these rioters are basically mix of all white, black, asian , arab and younsters from all background, who automatically fall in the group of just criminals. Just blaming someone by race or ethnicity or nationality is trying to create a prejudice against a particular class of people is wrong. When I observe the news, photos published across the web and the sad videos, I see that these rioters contain not a particular race or ethnicity but a mob united loosely with one cause, to steal, to loot and to spread terror. These rioters are not some intellects or free thinking reformers of the renaisance peroid but purely criminals.
“Nobody is doing nothing for us — not the politicians, not the cops, no one,” a 19-year-old who lives near Tottenham, the blighted London neighborhood where the riots started.
I am not sure if, Britains highest crime rate in Europe only indicates the problems a multi-cultural / multi-national society has caused for its citizens or a lack of proper parenting on these youth. The major contributing factor for the unrest among the youth is the matrialistic wave which is flowing around in the western world, while they see the bling bling on TV. Watch the bad guys around live a high spending life and ultimately these bad guys become the role model for the youth. Parents struggle to share any substantial education or even impart these kids with culture, since the parents are too busy trying to make ends meet or perhaps themselves living a troubled marriage life. When society looses its morality and culture, it becomes difficult to render on the kids a moral way of living. We are so much filled with voilence, Films, porn, sex, rich lifestyle on television, then how are we going to impart a hard working climb through the ladder of success life. Now these kids want quick money, whether its through stealing, selling drugs or even an ambition of becoming gangster.
The government owes nothing to anyone anywhere in this world. All governments are corrupt and work for their own favour and eventually fill up their pockets., oops sorry or maybe their bank accounts. These youth cant blame the government or the police, they rather get educated, work and make their own destiny. Governments dont make our destinies. For example in a country like India, we dont have any social benefits or welfare, yet people get educated, work and create their own destinies and as compared to UK, Indian government is more corrupt. It doesnt mean that the youth in India are burning the entire nation. Comparatively India is only getting econmically stronger, because of its people and not because of its government. Despite the fact that India was robbed and reduced to poverty by their colonial Britishers.
Its for sure these rioters are not protesting against the government or the police, but these rioters are basically criminals. I dont see them looting food, but electronics and clothing stores. Mostly the rioters have looted their own neighbourhood and especially some shopkeepers who had their entire lifes work reduced to debris. Is this what is called protest against the government? Well this is not a protest but this a violent crime and I feel these offenders are just a bunch of criminals and not some 17th century reformers or free thinkers who want to change the plight of soceity for better. This kind of looting has nothing to do with governments spending cuts or policies. Did burning some shops and looting the stores change the governments policy? Was this an attack on common hardworking people or government? The intention of these rioters have nothing to do with good cause but with evil. Being young and desperate doesnt give anyone right to steal and loot. These criminals should be tried and punished or shot at sight as they are nothing less than terrorists. It’s just people with no morals. Well this is one way I assume dealing with these criminals, I guess there isnt another.
Lots of people have had it tough but they don’t go smashing windows to steal flat screens. These youth ought to be ashamed as they live in one of the great countries which gives its citizens ample opportunities to create a considerable successful lifestyles and they didnt take advantage to shape up their career. They or their parents had a chance to work and make it happen but they didn’t. Did they party from their youth up, did they sit around at night and watch TV?
When people lose they usually try to blame it on someone else.No one owes anyone anything. Seek and you shall find, ask and it shall be given you, knock, and the door shall be opened to you. Don’t just barge in and get the stuff you don’t pay for. Since when was stealing a right?
Britain and the US have created entitlement hungry individuals…we need to stop giving folks these entitlements when they don’t provide anything to the economy or humanity other than producing more entitlement babies and crime. Enough is enough work or don’t work, but stop trying to live hard working tax payer and those that try to better themselves in this world!!! It doesn’t give anyone the right to destroy, steal, or harm another human! Get a life, and growup already, no one promised you anything, nor are you entitled to anything!!!!!
I dont have to work hard and save to get ahead – I can rob, kill, and beat people and thats because im poor – well I was poor and had to work for what I got – now I wouldnt want to give it to criminals.
I understand that global migration at lightning pace is straining communities around the globe. You cant put multiple cultures next to each other so quiclky and expect them to blend together. Simply too fast too soon or maybe I am just wrong about it. Maybe someone has a better solution.
