Report from the third night of London riots:

Never fear, we are fine.

Though all the stores near me have closed, riot cops have partitioned part of the local area, armoured vehicles are streaming past, and helicopters are swooping overhead.

Though in the states, people would just get shot. Here they have been debating water canons... and that is a big difference. Also America is way more like a police state now than it was when LA rioted. The anti-terrorism powers are profound, and scary.

I do think that something could happen - it only takes a catalyst to set people off - I just suspect it would be shut down much faster.

We are living in some really scary times.
