Riots in England English James Kim As we all know, England is not having a good time. People are looting from stores, the police are trying to calm people down, innocent people are getting arrested, etc. The big question is, “who is to blame?” I come to a conclusion that it was the greed of people that lead to these riots. Liberalization of the markets and the supportive media of this development is also a reason why this is happening. So how can we stop it? When we were little, we made many mistakes. We always did the exact opposite of what they told us. For example, “ Do not touch the stove, it is very hot! ” The moment the mother looked away the child would touch the oven and get burned. Telling the people to stop looting won’t help the situation. We tried the “easy” way. Did this, done that. Is it working? No. We have to solve the problem in a more “draconia­n” way. When people are scared or afraid, they try to avoid the situation as much as they can. I believe that we should let the British Military take control of this issue. People will get scared when the army is their enemy. In addition to that, if we grant permission to the military to shoot whenever it is necessary, people will stop. Since they know that it is now serious business.

A paper on the UK riots in August 2011
An outline of the various views on what caused the UK riots presented in text 1 and 2.
In the news report, “Experts Cite Underlying Causes for UK Riots” from Voice of America.
They report that it doesn’t seem like there is a reason why the young people a rioting other than “for fun and profit”. A person declares that they’ve got the time. They’ve got the energy.
But they use it on negative things. So why don’t just try to do something positive with that energy like the group HYPE? It seems like they aren’t just rioting but looting. With no reason. Just looting to loot.
In the article “Caring costs - but so do riots”.
Camilla Batmanghelidjh she writes about the two different sides of the community. She manufactures a picture of how it is to walk through the streets in the “black Britain”. “Walk on the estate stairwells with your baby in a buggy manoeuvring past the condoms, the needles, into the lift where the best outcome is that you will survive the urine stench and the worst is that you will be raped.” It might be a long quote, but it describes how a lot of the poorest citizens live.
And nobody should be obliged to live like that. It tells us that it isn’t just the rioters and the looters there is something wrong with. There might be something be something wrong with the Governments priorities.
For instance, when he talks about how the laws should be tightened for rioters and that it should be illegal to wear a mask in public. “Our brave police must be given a free hand to smash the mobs whatever it takes”.
The writer also uses his aggressive and negative opinions to the rioters and the MP’s for example when he writes: “You can help.
