A sensible article about the riots


It turns out violence existed before cartoons, rap music, single parents, atheism, this month.

It seems a remarkable coincidence that all the bad parents happen to live in the poorest areas of the country. Also weird that young men with darker complexions seem to get stopped & searched in those areas more often as well (but that definitely has nothing to do with not respecting the police, bad parenting again). Also strange that you get 2 years for thinking about stealing some fags but stealing £450,000 from the taxpayer gets you a pretty cushy job (even if you’re not qualified).
