When a fifteen-year-old kid walks through the front door with a 40" TV tucked under their arm, what the hell are they going to say to their parents? Mind you, if they've been allowed out without question late at night, I shouldn't imagine their parents are the kind of people who'd ask questions... I was talking to my boyfriend about it this morning. He said he'd heard they started on Erdington High Street as well. EDIT: Just read this on Yahoo! news: 'One young looter in Manchester said it was a chance to get back at the police for arresting young people for no reason. "I've come for the money," he said. "The police nick you for stupid things. This is our payback. They can't do nothing [sic] to us today.".' ... So is it for the money or 'payback'? God, these people are stupid. As someone else here said, they're destroying their own city because they have the IQ of a spoon.
