Mob Rule - Croydon - London.



The image you see above is one of many that I took yesterday evening in Croydon of a looter helping themselves to whatever they could in the midst of what I can only describe as a war zone.

As some of you London residents already know, our city has been hijacked by criminal elements taking advantage of a local issue in north London and turning it into an opportunity for vandalism and criminal damage with far reaching consequences.

I'm disappointed at the childish nature of these people, fair enough the country is in crisis but that is no excuse for destroying the opportunities, homes and livelihoods of so many. Has nobody ever heard of peaceful protests?!

I am really shocked by the scale of this and it has nothing to do with the original incident - and they are hurting their own community - people who have worked hard and are just getting on with their lives - i saw a woman on the news last night whose home had been burnt down and has lost everything - where is the right in that - they are just thugs and thieves x

These people are such a nuisance! And I hear it's spreading to other towns in the UK...very sad.

You're brave to take pictures while this is going on, David. It's truly sad. It especially makes me sad that the rioters/looters don't even seem to know if they've got a message (because I think they do) - all they do is destroy and grab things... as if this was the only reason we've got in life.

Elisa said...

I agree, you're very brave to take this picture. I can't believe these brainless people are ruining our beatiful city. What a waste.

Thugs terrorizing one of the most beautiful cities in the world is shocking....that it just keeps happening is very frightening....we hear about the problems with binge drinking and fighting ...is this the downfall of London?...a bunch of brainless, drunk, children?...i agree....where are their parents?

Audrey Allure said...

I still can't believe they would go to that level and destroy such a beautiful city.

Lauren said...

I'm so sorry to see what's going on in London. I would definitely not have the guts to be out photographing it. You are brave indeed!

Love your photograph. It's oddly serene considering the circumstances.

Do be careful and stay safe!

Ramona said...

I just can't believe what is happening in London. No way it can be posible. Perhaps in some third world country, but no in England, not in London. I hope it will stop soon and there will not be people who suffer from that.

Great photo!
