    "LONDON (AP) — Britons swept up, patched up and feared further violence Tuesday, demanding police do more to protect them after three nights of rioting left looted stores, torched cars and blackened buildings across London and several other U.K. cities.
    Police said they were working full-tilt, but found themselves under attack — from rioters roaming the streets, from a scared and worried public, and from politicians whose cost-cutting is squeezing police numbers ahead of next year's Olympic Games.
    London's Metropolitan Police force vowed an unprecedented operation to stop more rioting, flooding the streets Tuesday with 16,000 officers, nearly three times Monday's total.
    Although the riots started Saturday with a protest over a police shooting, they have morphed into a general lawlessness that police have struggled to halt with ordinary tactics. Police in Britain generally avoid tear gas, water cannons or other strong-arm riot measures. Many shops targeted by looters had goods that youths would want anyway — sneakers, bikes, electronics, leather goods — while other buildings were torched apparently just for the fun of seeing something burn."

    The article later reads...

    "Others pointed to rising social tensions in Britain as the government slashes 80 billion pounds ($130 billion) from public spending by 2015 to reduce the huge deficit, swollen after the country spent billions bailing out its foundering banks."

    Will the United States Be Next????? What do You think and how should we Prepare??

    You should always prepare :).

    I've always believed that a purpose of government welfare was to abate lawlessness to some degree.

    Good times are easy to handle.
    Its the bad times that can be a challenge.

    Prepare for the worst. The good times will take care of themselves.
    If the worst never happens, great !!
    Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

    in 1980 the republicans started the migration of funds from the poor to the rich that is apparent today.
    that was when "voodoo economics" was first put into practice. the talking points that are in use today were started then.
    neo cons and black conservatives were rooted out of the reagan revolution. they called it "black capitalism".

    the class war has been going on for 30 years. the rich have been winning. the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.
    it's only now that the effects have become more extreme that some of the poor are getting upset.

    I keep trying to catch any word of this on the news and they just are not talking about it. If it wasn't for sites like this I would be uninformed. Peace to the poster. @Jamesfrmphilly I hear your insight. If that explodes over here the cities will shutdown.
