Claim: Youths Offered Money To Start Riots
Violence in Leicester after “journalists” tried to pay off kids, according to Tweets

As massive unrest plaguing the United Kingdom spread from London to other cities last night, claims emerged that individuals calling themselves journalists were offering to pay youths to start riots, suggesting an effort to provocateur some of the violence.
According to Tweets sent by people who were in the city of Leicester last night trying to secure their communities, kids were being told to cause mayhem in return for cash. Leicester was hit by violence later that night, as youths attacked buildings in the city center.
“There were swarms of hooded Asian, black and white youths in their 20s, and some as young as 12, being hounded out of Leicester city centre at around midnight,” nightclub owner James Cockerill told the BBC.
In a message that was forwarded to Leicestershire police, a Twitter user called “leicestertalk” wrote, “AadamSparkzz & his mates just offered money by these journos to start a riot in #Leicester.”
“Dickheads that tried to offer us money for starting a riot in #Leicester,” said another Tweet, which included an accompanying picture of a blue car parked on the curb with its occupants standing nearby on the street.
“The media have sunk to a new low – bribing kids to start a riot. Reliable testimony that this just happened in #Leicester,” Tweeted another.
Judging by the Tweets, the men in the vehicle obviously told the kids they were journalists. The vehicle’s license plate reveals that the car is a Volkswagen Passat Se Tdi (4 Door Saloon). However, the vehicle may have no connection to the men in the picture.
Forum posters speculated last night that the journalist claim could have just been a cover for who the men seen in the image were really working for. However, it is important to stress that the claim that the occupants were offering kids money to start riots is nothing more than an allegation at this point.
Hiring provocateurs or using undercover police officers to start riots has become a routine method for justifying brutal crackdowns, although the tactic is primarily used at global summits.
We have documented numerous instances from the UK to Canada to the United States, where authorities have either used black bloc anarchists to generate violence or simply relied on their own undercover police posing as troublemakers to provoke mayhem.

Amazon Disarms Brits By Banning Self-Defense Items
Media, police and politicians disparage communities protecting themselves as vigilantism

Following calls by politicians, media and the police for Brits not to buy baseball bats and engage in what was disparagingly termed vigilantism, Amazon UK has followed suit by banning self-defense items from its online store, after sales of makeshift weapons soared through the roof as a result of riots plaguing the country.
In the immediate aftermath of widespread looting and rioting which was directed primarily against private homes and local family businesses, Brits left defenseless by a blanket gun ban that makes it virtually impossible to own a private firearm rushed to Amazon to purchase whatever could be used as a weapon to protect their families and property from attack.
The need for self-defense was exacerbated after police in London were ordered to stand down and let the rioting take place for the first three nights of chaos as a result of a Scotland Yard directive.
Sales of aluminum truncheons and baseball bats skyrocketed, with some items achieving sales 50,000 per cent above normal.
However, despite the fact that communities organizing themselves into groups to protect their streets, undermined by being labeled vigilantes by the media, did indeed serve to quell the worst of the rioting, politicians like Stella Creasy, MP for Walthamstow which was hit by riots on Monday night, lambasted members of the public for purchasing weapons to defend themselves.
This crosses the line when it involves weapons, said Creasy. That just encourages the sense of fear we want to reduce tension and fear in the area. People with baseball bats roaming the streets is not helpful: dont go on Amazon buying them.
Following suit, Amazon UK today banned the sale of perfectly legal items, including self-defense sprays and Kubotans, short lengths of plastic or steel.
Amazon has removed several police-style telescopic truncheons from sale on its site as soaring sales of truncheons, baseball bats and other items that could be used as weapons sparked fears of vigilantism in the wake of widespread rioting, reports the Guardian.
Amazon users were divided about the decision, but many applauded the move despite the fact that police completely failed to protect countless businesses from being burned to the ground and did little to stop violence which led to people being killed.
Even if they are being bought by respectable home and business owners, they should be banned from sale temporarily, said V Woolf. Vigilantism is not the answer. Get these items off the shelves, we are all scared and angry in London and need to know that measures are being taken to help us to feel safe in our cities again.
But theres a difference between feeling safe and actually being safe in your own home. No amount of government legislation or police deterrence can provide true safety and security, that responsibility rests with the individual. This has been proven in triplicate over the past few nights. As soon as communities started banding together and patrolling their streets, the riots withered and last night there was virtually no trouble at all.
However, the media quickly disparaged people getting together with their neighbors to protect their communities as vigilantism. The Metropolitan Police, whose order to its officers to stand down on the first three nights of rioting directly led to the escalation of the chaos, also warned residents not to patrol their communities.
Just like gun control, banning baseball bats only disarms the public and creates victims. Criminals will always be able to acquire weapons of any description because they do not obey laws. Leaving Brits defenseless will only embolden the rioting hordes.
If the UK riots have proven nothing else, theyve proven that the authorities cannot and will not protect you. It always comes down to the responsibility of the individual and the community to protect their own families, businesses and private property.

Awesome, in a socialist country you dont need a gun to protect yourself you have the government law enforcement.
Too bad the law enforcement was asked to stand down for the first 3 days!!
Way to go!Some people live long, meaningful lives.
Other people eat shit and die.
I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.
