Looters as young as 9 years old run wild

england rioters

David Cameron today gave the go-ahead for police to use water cannons on rioters after children as young as nine looted stores and made off with bottles of wine and vodka in fresh violence that flared around the UK yesterday.

The children wore tracksuits and unlike hardened older thugs they innocently disregarded covering their faces as they ran through the shattered glass of supermarkets to fill their pockets with looted goods.

But today, the police were given the green light to use water cannons with 24 hours’ notice. The Prime Minister said that plans had been put in place to deal with the disorder using water cannons – making it the first time they would be used on the streets of mainland Britain.

‘Whatever resources the police need they will get. What ever tactics they feel they need they will have legal backing to do so.’

Mr Cameron said that the police would be checking offenders ‘picture by picture’ and they would not let ‘phoney human rights’ stand in the way of bringing rioters to justice.

He said that something was ‘seriously wrong’ with society ‘when you see children as young as 12 or 13 looting and laughing’.

Mr Cameron insisted the ‘fightback’ by police was succeeding today after a fourth night of rioting across the country. He said a ‘more robust approach’ by Scotland Yard last night had prevented a repeat of the worst trouble.

The PM said it was ‘simply not acceptable’ that violence was taking place and had spread to Manchester, Birmingham and Nottingham overnight.

‘We will not put up with this in our country. We will not allow a culture of fear to exist on our streets.’

    Wait until the kneegers begin their next round of looting here in the US. Some kneegers already use young kids in their theft schemes.

    • George R. Gallagher

      This is NOT a racial problem! Just thank the people born in the 30′s + 40′s who went to brain-washing universities to become teachers and had unending political rant shoved down their throats. Their students in turn became teachers & taught the kids to “question authority” and to “get even for the screwing you got!” You will not believe the political indoctrination your children are getting in so many high schools and colleges – especially in the “blue chip” colleges & universities.

    • don

      Yes it is a racial problem. You apparently have not seen the videos of the new kind of mob violence. Obama now has his own black “flash mobs”. You are not watching Fox news are you? Begin with finding out what a “flash mob” is!

    • helm

      Hey Whackajig, what happens if you use the real word “nigger” instead of kneegers? I’v seen alot worse on here. Is this site PC?

    • http://hotmail cannot believe

      POLICE SHOULD BE KILLING THEM AND BURY THEM IN A MASS GRAVE.

    • Harrisonburg Bob

      In “the good ol days” loters were shot on sight. That kept it under control. You can’t have these nuts and criminals ruining other peoples’ lives with their evil actions.

    • W

      Actually news reports say most rioters in Britain were white.

    • don

      But here in America the instant, violent, small(now)mobs now forming are BLACK. They attack everyone where they appear. Learn what a “flash mob” is. I will bet they become obama’s new shock troops. Nothing will be done about it by our racist Federal Justice Department.

    This is only a single measure of how far we can fall due to the gross mismanagement of the elected ruling class. None of this is hard; it only takes character and they have none.

  • Are you Serious

    I never understand why this is allowed to happen. If they would simply make it clear that it will not be tolerated, and that looters will be shot on sight the problems would end. Kill a few hundred/thousand of this vermin, and they will not continue their destruction.

    • helm

      The cops over there DON’T have real guns, only the criminals do. Can’t kill if you got no way to do so.

    • ARMYOF69

      That’s not quite correct. The cop on the beat does not carry a weapon, because they are scared of being jumped and losing the gun to a criminal, but they do have special police forces that can carry guns into the streets when needed. Whether they will fire on the crowd or not is something else. They are so PC , that they would not dare unless the criminals shoot first.

    • ricbee

      Guns or no guns,they wouldn’t use them anyway & the looters know that-so it’s grab all you can man!

    • http://verizon Ann Rand

      I heard that the police shot and killed a 29yr. old dope dealer and that is what started the riots. I thought that the police don’t carry guns. What happened?

    • don

      This is why Americans have to make sure pelosi and obama are not allowed to disreguard the 2nd amendment and confiscate law abiding American citizen’s guns. pelosi is already working with the UN to disarm us! There is not enough police to protect us from mobs. This country has not lost it’s will to survive, as England seems to have done.

    • Alex

      No killing is necessary. None at all. It is too messy. Mass DEPORTATIONS! Of whole families which did not take care their not-so-little ruts. As for non-immigrant Brits – immediate and prolonged benefits revocation. You’ll see this abominable behavior dissipates in 10 minutes.

    • MollyB

      I totally agree with shooting on site. Any thug no matter their age, who has so little respect for what another has worked so hard to accomplish and enjoy, should not be allowed to rob them blind. If they know they will be shot, I believe there would be maybe a handful but not in the hundreds or thousands. I agree with your PM when he said “We will not put up with this in our country. We will not allow a culture of fear to exist on our streets.” I would that America had the guts and fortitude to stand up against Tyranny. How can any country prosper when such is allowed in their streets?

    • Dave Z.

      No, hit ‘em in the pocketbook as I heard this morning. When (if) you come in to pick up your kid from jail, you, as a parent, pay $500 in fines. Then see how quickly this mess clears up!

    • ARMYOF69

      Better still, make them pay for all damages caused at that shop where the kid was found plus all police expenses involved.AND..keep records on that kid till he’s 21 and has proven himself to be a normal human being.

    • http://verizon Ann Rand

      Who gets to pay for the damages?Not everyone can afford insurance and most business owners are just getting by.This is due to the “nanny state” mentality and I fear that we will see more.

    • redhawk

      Why bother with fines or jail time. We’ve already proven that the parents won’t pay the fines and the kids look at a jail time as a badge of honor. Tazers and tranq. darts only work temporarily. What next ? The only thing these thugs understand is death. Arm yourselves and shoot to kill.

    • Ohio Tony

      Why wasn’t this policy instituted after the first night of rioting? Four days later seems like closing the barn door after the horses have gotten out.

      I have heard news reports of some shop and buisness owners taking matters into their own hands by confronting and beating the dog squeeze out of these vermin.

    • http://verizon Ann Rand

      Exactly as it should be. Why didn’t they bring out the water cannons immediately? Once thet have lost control, it’s too late.

    • don

      A country that waits 4 day to use water cannons instead of shooting looters on the first day has lost it’s will to survive. Wait till the arabs find out how easy it is to take the whole country. The police without guns is PATHETIC!

  • am2sweet

    All I can say is where are the parents of these children running around in the streets? Obviously they aren’t raising their kids. Sounds like the kids are raising themselves.

    • Ellen

      The parents are with them, sending them into the stores. They use the death of a thug as an excuse to run wild.

    • Larry G

      The kids are with their parents most likely.

    • helm

      A bit like america don’t you think? Have you noticed the age of our thugs?

    • Evermyrtle

      They are like some other parents, knowing the danger out there, allows their children walk through town alone and end up getting kidnapped. I would not allow my little grandaughter walk from my house to her house, alone which was 20 yards from my back door.

    • ricbee

      Do I feel sorry for you living in fear like that.

    • MollyB

      Ricbee…..don’t be a cad. If you watch the tele, you know it isn’t safe to let your child out of your site for a moment. Pedophiles work swiftly.

    • auhunter

      Their parents are probably with them. Most parents keep a pretty short leash on their kids over there, or at least they did while I was stationed over there during the ’60′s, of course since then the whole world society has changed. For instance here in the US some parents seem to think that school is a baby sitting service and then gripe when their kids are disciplined.

    • Whackajig

      Are you truly unaware of the jig lifestyle?

  • http://http/aol.com sean murry

    These kids need a good ass kicking i would never thought of doing those things at that age.

    • Evermyrtle

      Any child will do just as much as they are allowed to do. Blame parents who have not clue where their children or what they are doing, and don’t care just so they are out of their hair.

    • ProudTEAbagger

      I put much of the blame on nanny states and liberal thinking. Spank your kids and see how fast CPS shows up at your door. Where did that old saying come from “spare the rod and you spoil the child”?

    • LarryFrom10EC

      The Bible actually. Proverbs.

    • Storky

      In the Bible it actually states, “He that spareth his rod, hateh his son” meaning-if you do not properly discipline your children-you hate them and don’t love them enough to teach them right from wrong.

    • ricbee

      They didn’t their cowardly parents sent them.

    • MollyB

      Sean….it is a new day. Parents have et their guard down and children rule in many homes. Sad. We have lost our way.

  • http://yahoo.com tod

    They send in their Union thugs to start the riots!

  • SHERMAN (like the tank)

    People…..Read the Bible….This is ” Just the Beginning”of the woe’s that are to come. We are witnessing Manking (the wonderful) De-evolving into selfish uncaring thugs…..It will get worse, much worse.

    • Evermyrtle

      I am afraid that you are exactly right. Hate to admit it but it is coming!!!

  • http://espionageaction-actionadventure.blogspot.com stephen russell

    Blame the parents, grandparents for 9 year old looters.
    Contact schools, homeschools OK UK?
    File suits, Class action suit IE businesses vs those schools & kids etc.
    & shoot some to make Point.

  • Owen Grant

    It’s coming here. Socialism then communism . I was surprised at how my gas milage improved after I put a locking gas cap on my car.

    • MollyB

      Good sense of humor, Owen. I can relate.

  • Debbie

    Are you guys serious??? Remove the children from the parents, prosecute the parents to the fullest extent possible, re-educate the children. But you guys are advocating SHOOTING children! Don’t you k ow by now that this whole scenario is being manipulated? And you want to fall in the same violence trap as these young people are in? Don’t you understand that they have been worked up into this angry frenzy by those who want to control the entire population? Then, Marshall law( or the equivalent ) can be instituted and we lose all of our freedoms( including suspension of elections, by the way) conservatives need to think, think, think about who may likely be behind these flash mobs, and why they are happening. Show YOUR children, by example, that being calm and thinking things through is the best defense. Otherwise, how are you any better than those frenzied kids. I personally suspect that these websites, facebook, Twitter, etc. Are being infiltrated by Progressive Socialist adults who are purposely working these kids up into teenage hormonal rage to further their Socialist agenda.

    • PaleHorse Comes

      Sorry Little Debbie.
      While I don’t advocate ‘shooting children’, I do advocate the right of someone to protect their property, their livelyhood, their family, and their lives.

      Someone who is having their home invaded or property destroyed or getting beat up doesn’t get to pick the age of their attackers.

      The whole idea that these poor little looters are somehow victims just shows how liboreal brainwashed you already are.

      Your solution that the children should be taken away and re-educated… they are already being indoctrinated into libtard stupidity.

      Go back to the mother ship before it takes off without you!

    • http:www.charliecoombs.com/checkpointcharlieweb/ Charlie Coombs

      In Texas, a citizen may use deadly force to protect his or her person *or* property. These things tend not to happen here.

      Come to Texas! Bring your businesses, your jobs and your money. There’s plenty of room for you here.

    • Christina

      Debbie, that’s got to be the smartest thing I’ve heard all week!

  • trackfodder

    If they had dropped a few looters in the Watts riot, I have a feeling this wouldn’t be happpening if they thought they would get their a$$ shot off

  • trackfodder

    How about tazers or tranq darts?

  • tova

    Debbie you hit the nail on the head. In addition, you will see that various protests are taking place around the world is it simply a coincidence or is it much more sinister than that? What is interesting is in the case of the rioting that whethercit began in Tunisia or Egypt or England the original fuse was similar as was the out burst of rioting. So, who is it that is sleepless orchestrating and coordinating such mass unrest?

  • http://PatriotUpdate ADRoberts

    Riots and looting will stop if you will shoot them with real bullets.

    • http://PatriotUpdate ADRoberts

      I assure you that the socialist will be using real ammunition when they attack patriotic citizens and conservatives.

    • MollyB

      ADRoberts…..they will bring out the BIG GUNS. Some states in the US already have tanks…..like they used in WACO when they killed women and children. That fiasco was totally UNconstitutional. Of course, Obama thinks our Constitution is a “living document needing to be changed.” It served us well before he became president.

  • ricbee

    Banging on my door will be the last thing a looter ever did. But the Brits are near totally disarmed.

    • LarryFrom10EC

      In Britain,the biggest seller on Amazon is a police baton. The second biggest seller is an aluminum baseball batt. Think they’re getting ready?

    • http://verizon Ann Rand

      Wonder if they know about cattle prods???

  • John Hand

    The British are responding too late and with insufficient force. Their country has changed due to allowing open immigration, and they have not yet adapted to the changes. I can see something happen here, and when it is ‘over’ for now, the Muslims will have gained more recruits.

    • Whackajig

      Saw him last night.He is really too far left for me. Outside of abolishing the Fed, I could not agree with anything he says.

  • http://www.DonCordellforPresident.com Don Cordell

    Where are the parents? They are working 2 or 3 minumum wage jobs trying to earn enough to save the house from foreclosure. Our government would love to take all the kids into Indoctrination camp to teach then how to spy on their parents, how we must Change America to live more like the rest of the poor in the world, to save all the Natural Resources for those who really deserve these resources (the very rich of course) Educated that America takes advantage of the rest of the world, and only turning off America will solve the problem.

    • Dale on left coast

      Really Don . . . the parents are at the pub . . . spending their Welfare Checks . . . most of these kids are 3rd generation Welfare . . . this is the result of decades of loonie leftist “The Govt Will Look After You” policies. Soon to be coming here when the State and Fed Govt can no longer fund these “Passengers”.

  • WASP

    Let’s see. 9 year olds require a smaller dose of lead–so use a .22 on them and save the larger caliber stuff for adults.

  • proudamerican

    Well then- the papers will read “9 year old looter shot and killed”. Next item please?

  • Lutra

    Many of the looters will be found to be a part of the muslim invasion of GB. This is what is happening in the world today. (Check out the riots in France.) These people want any and all “others” under their rule. They do send kids out to cause these disruptions. If those kids die while doing so, well, they have just reached “Paradise”. The muslim world will support their parents for their life-time, cause they produced a jihadist. Check it out. And yes, this is what the world is coming to. End result SHOULD BE: If any parents are found to be parents of the kids and receive “support payments” or “aid” from GB funds, now is the time to de-fund those parents/families, and send them home to “Saudi-land”!

  • Debbie

    Sorry, Palehorsecomes, you misunderstood me. The Bible tells us we have EVERY right to protect our property and our lives and the law says with equal force. I firmly agree with that. What I was commenting on was the attitude of the comments that were NOT just for protection- I got the distict impression that these were hate filled extermination desires. And I reiterate, that attitude makes us the same as the liberals. As to re-education, I don’t believe I implied re-education by the state! We already have a whole generation of “brown shirts”. I think any Bible believing Christian would be more than willing to try to re-educate these kids before they become hardened lazy welfare criminally inclined adults. And yes, they ARE victims- victims of a society and parents that have taught them a lack of respect, no work ethic, an incapability for independent thought, no rules, “if it feels good-do it” mentality. You know, a thinking compassionate person can pity without letting oneself be run over, can discipline without cruelty. These kids are like feral cats and dogs, but even feral cats and dogs can be trained.
    I’m sorry you misunderstood me, I don’t think I deserved the insults however. Can’t wait to tell my friends you thought I was liberal! They all think I’m the most far-right person they know!LOL

  • Debbie

    Thanks Christina and Tova. We can be “mad as h— ” but if we lose our sensibilities and control, we become just like them.
    You may think I’m crazy to say it, but Satan is behind this. It’s Biblically prophesied. And he is using people like Soros, obama, the ACLU and, unfortunately, non-Bible believing churches to break down our moral values. When the family unit is broken, morals perverted, this is what happens. Communism, Socialism, Marxism, Islam are all against the God of the Bible. Those who would be king will resort to any means to accomplish it. Freedom is a God given right. If we deny God, we get what we deserve. And we won’t like it.

    • proudamerican

      Debbie-you are 100% correct. True Americans with faith will defeat this satan’s best efforts. Everything he does and says is a house of cards.

  • http://verizon Ann Rand

    I saw Ron Paul last night in the debate. I agree with him about the Fed. but there is where it stops. I can’t believe he would have no problem with Iran having nuclear weapons!!I thought he was sort of “out there” about some things, but I didn’t realize how far. He would put us in a more dangerous position than we already in.

  • CarolynH

    When you are taught that you have the right to what others have whether you work for it or not is their mentality. Welfare and the nanny state have caused so much poverty and hatred. No morals nor integrity among these that riot, only get what they want and holler about police brutality if they are punished. Without discipline and desire to be educated, nothing will change.
