Did they actually happen? When I think of them now I just picture one or two buildings on fire and nothing else.
I almost went for Stewart Lee.
i shudder to think how grim the scene would have been if that fire extinguisher had fallen on that chap's head.
were nowhere to be seen as soon as there was a bit of rain
Not quite sure if they happened either. All that I remember is that some copper got hacked to death with machetes.
It was the Broadwater farm riots and not the Brixton ones.
Not that that has anything to do with how hideous it was.
wasn't sure if it was just a docu-soap
No not why did it fucking happen. Why are you explaining really widely reported events to people?
i didn't even think it was possible
i just don't really pay it much attention because i have better things to do. this is just mental though. i can't work out if untrue is a troll or really thick.
notagain's responses are the bit that worries me.
explaining really widely reported events from a year ago in the way that it was done upthread strikes me as oddness
I did. Which probably makes me a schmuck. Oh well.
Was pretty pleased that they nailed the guys wot dunnit.
And apparently there are still riots related cases going through. Some of them the biggest waste of time ever - there's a lot of *he nicked my football during the riots* Stalin's Purges esque grassing
