Omg.. just had one of the worst nights of my life. My mother in law lives just off a high street that was complete destroyed by riots. cars are burning outside her house. we were on the phone with her all night. we haven't slept because the looters were coming closer and closer to our house. finally at the last minute the police flooded the area with armoured vehicles and chased them off. WHY do the police not have water cannons and tear gas?? they are out there facing down thousands of angry thugs with nothing. I can't believe they are being asked to do it. And I can't believe things have been able to get this bad. end rant... i am so tired but i'm still afraid to sleep.
