Of Heroes and Zeroes

Posted in The Job - Comment by 200

I watched two contrasting TV programmes tonight. The first was Crimewatch’s special, “Riots Caught on Camera“, which featured film of groups scum whose only thoughts are for themselves & getting whatever they can for nothing rather than going out and working and saving up for it like the rest of us.

The second featured a group of men of 3 Platoon, 1st Battalion Royal Anglian Regiment who filmed themselves out in Helmand Province, Afghanistan in 2007. It told the story of the death of Private Chris Gray, a 19-year-old soldier in his first experience of war. The moving documentary told of the effects of his death on his friends and colleagues, and of his family. If you haven’t seen it, after it was first shown on BBC Three, you can catch it on the BBC iPlayer.

Not one of the people I saw in the first programme were fit to lick the boots of anyone I saw in the second. Everyone involved in those riots should be forced to watch this programme repeatedly until it sinks into their self-serving little skulls what living in society is about, any that fail to understand should be sent to Helmand, dressed as a soldier and handed a wooden gun, sent towards the Taliban lines and told to get on with it.

I know which group will be occupying my thoughts for the rest of the evening.

    Didn’t see the first (couldn’t bring myself to watch) but did see the second, for the second time, and agree fully. The scum should be forced to watch programmes like these while they are in prison

    Rioting, looting and arson should carry the death sentence. I’m beyond anger at the scum. A black armed criminal is shot dead and the local black population decide that instead of being glad that a dangerous criminal is off the streets their response is to riot, loot and fire bomb people and property. To be honest these people disgust me and I will never ever lift a finger to help/aid these people.

    The scum wouldn’t get anything other than bored from the second programme though. They don’t have the morals and civilisation from being brought up and living in this country, a TV show certainly won’t dent their self confidence and entitlement attitude.

    Sending them out there to experience it personally though….

    I agree. Simon is right too.

    Simon, I agree with you on most of what you say, but wherever did you get the idea that Mark Duggan’s death was at the forefront of rioter’s minds?

    Ask any of the shites that rioted, looted and torched, “what was the name of the black man shot by police in London?” and I bet, 90% of the time, you’ll be met with a blank stare!

    As for “I will never ever lift a finger to help/aid these people,” I assume you are a taxpayer?

    It’s time honest, law-abiding people took back the streets, but how that’s going to happen with wets like prince Chas, putting it all down to a “cry for help,”I really don’t know.
