Probably the best rioter in the world....
I havent been paying attention to what happens in the UK, but are the rioters all black like in the LA Rodney King riots, or is it a mixed bag?
Correct me if I am wrong but the dude that was taken out was an armed drug dealer who shot at the cops first correct?
I dont see why this is big news, some ex con gets taken out back home, and people dont bat an eye...
If the shop keepers were allowed to be armed with say AK's or the standard infantry SA-80 bullpup. People would be less inclined to riot and loot, they would protest and march peacefully but not riot and loot.
An armed society is a polite society...

No not all black. There are a lot of photos on the British newspaper sites. E.g http://img.thesun.co.uk/multimedia/a...1_1356768a.jpg
The "dude that was taken out" was black. There was a peaceful protest about the handling which appears to have been hijacked by those with a different agenda. An early police spokesman's comment was something along the lines of "we could have liaised with the man's family in a better way".
Not the whole USA is armed, some states have bans on gun ownership and shockingly enough, those are the areas with the highest rates of violent crime. Chicago, DC, NYC come to mind.
If you ban guns and take gun ownership out of the hands of normal law abiding citizens, the only ones that will be armed are the criminals.
Criminals do not walk into a gun store and buy a gun and have it registered.
