Riots in London

The riots in London really shocked me.the way young boys looted the shops and even injured people, shows the lack of civic sensitivity and morality in the people.Nothing...being jobless or poor or without any hope..absolutely nothing justifies this sort of behaviour..it was pure criminalism. Because there will be thousands of people in the world who are jobless, and poor but it doesnt mean that they start killing other people.
Two things  very clearly come out of this incident..
One that society must look inward and give more importance to teaching morals and ethics, less to consumerism as is rampant in west and now coming to India too.
Two..Suing of doctors, police etc demoralises them, here police action was not very swift and sometimes people were left to fend for themselves, police is not given even real bullets..too much of citizen rights and all has made citizen also forget their duties...all the citizens also have a duty towards their country and they have no right to torch either govt property or other's shops and houses, they must be made to pay for their crimes..as here everywhere CCTV are used so one can identify those criminals.

As I was thinking about this I heard the news that in India also.in Moradabad communal riots happened..there also every year when people bring Kanwars, areas become sensitive to riots..I dont know why...some people question the practice of bringing it, but its individual's choice and if they want to do it, their journey must be facilitated and they must be given security too..thats govt.s duty...instead lot of traffic jams happen and this time riots.

Obviously youngsters are angry, frustrated and need their energies channelized. Plus an opportunity to get away with the crime is causing these riots.

I agree with you.

You draw the right conclusions.

For those bloggers who always blame Indian society, this is as embarrassing issue. They want to depict India as the only place in the world where all evil exists and these riots break down their theories. Considering our poverty and our lack of governance, we are a much better society than most people realize. I, for one, hope that western consumerism doesn't take hold of Indian society.

We have heard such things taking place in Asian countries, what has streamed through London is worse than that…it s been one of the black chapters in their history….

Most of the rioters are jobless people, I heard. The frustration makes them behave like this at a drop of a hat. The law should take care of them. We can give importance to 'human rights' upto some level. What about the injured persons in the riot then? They can also go to 'human rights' activists!

It was horrible seeing the looters mostly teenagers feeling high that they could get away with something like this. Guess it is the lack the morals.
