So about 40 people are causing this trouble, and the observation being that most of the people are about 13/14 year olds. Now the number has increased to 200-300 causing disturbance.

They should be tucked up in bed for a start, they probably don’t even know the amount of trouble they are going to get in, or the amount of destruction they are causing.

35 people have been arrested in Birmingham linked to the rioting. 6 of them are youths.

Police has surrounded the  Bullring so that hasn’t got affected as of yet. Reports have said police are guarding the Children’s Hospital and the rioters have been diverted away by the police.

No public transport in or out of Birmingham with many roads closed. Transport may be effected for the next day or two.

Primark is on fire, Tesco at Five Ways has been hit, attempts of breaking into the Children’s Hospital.
Hollister, House of Fraser, Aston Villa shop, Jack Wills, JD Sports all been looted.
Santander has been looted, with the cash machine being brought out.

It does quieten down with people walking down, but then re-alights again.

And reports of the London riots are that it the riots have broken into a 30 mile radius of Tottenham.

It seems that Social Media such as Twitter and Facebook, also BlackBerry Messenger has helped to arrange the rioting.

*Children’s Hospital has not been attacked, and Primark has not been on fire*

Looting of the Adidas shop earlier:

I am only writing up what I am reading on a live stream from a local newspaper, so it is all in one place. This the majority of what has been said.

Riots in Birmingham

August 8, 2011

So Primark is on fire in the town centre. Along with JD Sports, House of Fraser, Footlocker, Hollister and the phone shops being smashed in and broken. Yeah, good one.

If this is due to the riots in Tottenham because of the shooting of Mark Duggan then it is ridiculous. Mark Duggan for one, was shot due to the correct procedure the police had to take.

And if it is due to this, that was in Tottenham, 3 hours drive further down south, completely not related to Birmingham town centre!

People are saying that its due to the lack of effort the police are doing to prevent it. The police had no idea this would become so wide-spread and dangerous, they didn’t know there was that many idiotic teenagers living in Britain.

These kids are ruining their lives and the lives of others. They are just jumping on the bandwagon and using this as an excuse to commit crime for an apparent ‘reason’.

Absolute Scum.
