    Riots in London, Is this a sign of whats to come here in the United States? This country is beginning to break apart at the seams and all the government and the bleeding heart librals are worried about is how we can feed the people of Somalia and Kenya.....Seriously???? Let Bono, Cher, Clooney, Penn and all the rest of the Hollywood weenies feed them with their millions of dollars. I don't know about you folks but I don't want my tax dollars going to another countries problems when we have our own we can't afford.

    :upeyes:

    I am quite certain that our "disadvantaged" youths can out-riot their British counterparts in terms of property looted, property destroyed, lives lost and lives messed up.

    It is more likely to happen in inner cities in the USA. People that riot want large crowds and being anonymous. Look for where past riots happened and those are the most likely places.

    Is it possible they jump in cars and attack people outside the city? Possible but not probable.

    An interesting part with the London riots this time, is that they are occurring in suburban London. The rioters are more mobile and are actually traveling to other places to riot and loot. They aren't just burning down their own neighborhoods. I have a friend/co-worker from London who's family is in North West London, and they are grateful it's still mostly quiet there.

    I do think you may have issue in the suburbs as well. Not full blown riots, but with Flash mob and assaults on business and suburban homes in the "nice neighborhoods"

    In Philly at least it seems that the flash mobs are not attacking people in their own neighborhood , but traveling a few miles to do their dirty work. To give you an example, a suburban McMansion development, the main street loops in a circle and the lighting is poor. Middle of the night EVERY SINGLE VEHICLE parked outside is hit by a pack of teens. Any Money, Credit Cards, Small electronics, or GUNS in the cars are taken. A neighborhood teenager coming home late from a party is also assaulted by the pack. In the suburban development you may get a local patrol car drive thru maybe once or twice a night, and if they do make contact with the pack, they will either hide in the dark as the vehicle drives by, or they will scatter like roaches if seen in the light.

    This is already happen in some suburbs here. It not just big city kids, but kids from those "bad" smaller cities and towns, and even gangs of secton 8 apartment complexes. The problem is at some point they will step up the game. Maybe daytime hit and run home invasions, maybe just wilding thru your suburban mall or street as a show of force, robbing and beating any male and robbing and tearing the clothes off of any female that crosses thier path. Its actually better for them to trying something like that in the Burbs then in the city, because a lack of resistance from limited cops, less witnesses, more liberal and passive suburban people, and bigger scores.

    If they can't get a handle on now, and nip it in the bud, this is going to get ugly.

    Criminals have found out along time ago that traveling out of their imediate AO is a "good" thing for them.

    Where I live, we get lots of those types from atlanta (not saying we don't have our own home grown).

    There will be more of this 'exporting crime think' as our society continues to crumble.

    I can see that happening. Strange as it might sound I think the availability of public transportation is needed. They don't have a lot of personal vehicles and I don't think car jacking works to get a large mob from point a to point b.

    Does the suburb you mention have public transport?

    I think it depends a lot on the neighborhood where I live. We have minority enclaves and large, mostly white, redneck areas where you would have to be an idiot to start this kind of trouble. Not that they aren't idiots... but there is a limit.

    Give us Americans the green flag and we can stop a criminal mob in a flash. Just look what a handful of motivated Korean/American shop owners can do without even firing a shot.

    Just as I thought. The criminal mobs are environmentalists.

    Certain areas of the country will not see the same intensity/scale of riots, mobs, etc, that others will. A red states/blue states map of the country is a good starting point.

    Feeding people in Somalia is the equivalent of the MSM saying "look, a puppy"

    Look at what the knuckleheads did in LA years back...Burned down and looted their own town over the Rodney King BS. How dumb could you be????? If irate people need this kind of mayhem and destruction over unemployment, economy or whatever, do it in the hoods of congressman and senators in Georgetown DC who cause their misery and maybe they would get more public support.

    Feeding Somalis is a worthy endeavor. They end up giving our navy boys good targets to shoot at.
