The horrible violence in London, that has made the city look more like Iraq, has been blamed on Social Networking websites like Facebook and Twitter. Will this cause more censorship of the Internet? The mindless terrorist gangs that are burning down buildings and torching cars are just fanning the flames of more government restriction of the Internet and do not care about the damage to property and lives at all, they are robbing defenceless people in plain sight and believe they are above the law, but will it become necessary  to send in the army and take down these people with CS gas and even rubber bullets?. This is a huge stain on the Olympic city with just over a year to go before the 2012 Olympics. The riots started over the weekend seem to have been sparked after a peaceful protest outside Tottenham’s police station over the fatal shooting of local man Mark Duggan, killed during an alleged gunfight with police on Thursday, was reportedly hijacked by thugs and looters. Going back in time to 1985, there was a police raid on the home of a Caribbean woman, Cynthia Jarrett resulted in her death. this has fermented hatred of the police and ever since a notorious riot on the Broadwater Farm Estate, the public in the area have harboured a hatred of authority, which has come to a head with the latest riots perpetrated by disenfranchised youth in the area.

There is no end in sight to the riots and the destruction is seemingly without end, and as I have said before, the Olympic city is burning and shop-fronts have been broken into and looted with no regard for the costs of cleaning up the mess.
