Of those who have ended up in Court due to looting, 47 percent are White, 47 percent are black and 7 percent are Asian. These figures prove that a disproportionate amount of the rioters were Black. Blacks don’t make up 47 percent of the population of England.
Foreign looters from 44 countries have been locked up over the riots which scarred the country in August. Robbers, vandals and thugs from as far afield as Afghanistan, Cuba, Ethiopia and Samoa joined in as shops were plundered and businesses set ablaze, causing millions of pounds worth of damage.The sheer number from different corners of the globe who took part in the mayhem is one of the strongest indicators yet that the riots had nothing to do with political protest or civil unrest, but was born of greed and opportunist criminality. Prison statistics revealed that 14 per cent – about one in seven – of those jailed for burglary, robbery, theft, criminal damage and disorder during the riots were born abroad. But the true number could be even higher as at least four per cent of those remanded in custody refused to tell police their nationality. Jamaicans represented the largest group of foreign inmates, followed by Somali and Polish offenders. The list also included those from Colombia, Iraq, Congo, Vietnam and Zimbabwe. One in four of those jailed for robbery were born abroad, as were one in ten convicted for violent disorder or other disorder offences such as possession of a knife or drugs. Nationally, police have made more than 4,000 arrests, with 2,952 suspects held in London alone. Yesterday Sir Andrew Green of the MigrationWatch pressure group called on the Government to kick out foreign rioters and looters. He said: ‘It’s absolutely unacceptable that any foreign citizen should take part in a riot in Britain. ‘It’s important that the courts should recommend deportation in every case which would qualify.’
Anyone living in England and not blind could have predicted that these riots and looting would happen. We have allowed so called Asylum seekers to settle in England just because they come from a Country where a conflict is going on. We let these immigrants live in luxury £1 million pound houses in London and pay their rents of over £8000 a month on welfare – When I am unemployed all I get is my mortgage interest paid £80 a month and I have worked and paid taxes. Most of these immigrants come from Africa .The young British black youth and also white chavs on the council estates in London have no hope of finding work as immigrants work for less because they send money home where it buys much more. The Chavs and British Black chavs have a love of Gangsta Rap and it’s morals – live of welfare, steal, sell drugs, don’t respect women just get them pregnant and leave them etc – this has led to feral youths controlling the council estates. The Gangs use children to deliver drugs on their bikes and even if the kids are caught in the act they won’t get a sentence.
When the riots broke out these Gang members so the perfect opportunity to rob from the shops in their neighbourhoods. Most can’t afford cars and Oxford street has too many CCTV.
We should have had in place methods to deal with rioting – using water Canon with coloured dye would be an option and also more Police Dogs let them chase the looters.
