Birmingham Riots

ND – Dark

So ND towers was surrounded by rioters and eventually riot Police yesterday (Monday 8th August) and the troubles caused bad problems at our city centre office.

Walked around city centre this morning, lots of smashed windows, Adidas, Orange, JD Sports amongst many robbed. Cameras taken from Jessops and the Louis Vuitton shop was surgically cleared. There’s a lot of brown £800 handbags in Ladywood and Handsworth tonight I feel!

Funnily enough they didn’t touch Waterstones bookshops.

Also came across some very likely culprits out for a stroll this morning, sniggering like Beavis and Butthead at what I can only imagine was their handiwork the night before.

Struggled to drive back into city tonight from work, loads of roads from the middle ringway all closed. Finally got back thanks to a gap near Five Ways. Eerily quiet outside, Mailbox is completely locked down with no one getting in or out according to a friend there. Spotted the black smoke from a burning car near Moor Street.

Honestly, this is kids. Where are their parents? What are their parents saying when they arrive home at midnight with an unboxed MacBook Pro under their arms? Parents, the community need to take control, but our laws are pathetic, we’re too lenient and paralysed by legislative caution. These people need a right clip around the earhole. At least!

Someone please take control back now.

Stay Safe,

About nakedigit

I have legs and a camera. I also occasionally use a passport. The camera with my brightest lenses can almost (almost) see in the dark. So the only thing stopping me from putting it all together regardless of where and when i am is, well, me really! However, when i don't completely muck it up the results may end up here on this blog and also my Flickr page. I now Twitter and a website is coming... ND August 2010
