I don't know how much international press coverage this is getting, but tonight is the third night in a row of rioting in London. It started on Saturday night in a small area of north London after a peaceful protest against a police shooting turned ugly. Each night since then things have got worse and become more and more widespread, with what can only be described as thugs burning police cars, buildings, shops, buses and looting. Parts of the capital now look like a war zone, and the metropolitan police have lost control. The prime minister and other members of the cabinet are even cutting short their holiday to return to the UK to try and sort this mess out. These scenes are disgusting, and while the original action of a peaceful protest may have been somewhat justified, people are just jumping on the bandwagon and taking advantage of the opportunity to be violent. It's pretty embarrassing, and saddening that this is the mentality of British youth. Here's a BBC link, though I'm sure there are many other out there: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-14450248.
