The Bleat of Sheep - Riots edition.

Get a load of these Daily Mail readers screaming to hand over their freedoms to the state, in exchange of an illusory feeling of safety:

Declare martial law. Nothing less will satisfy the vast law-abiding majority who are sick and tired of a useless Government which justifies the time and money to deal with riots in Libya while anarchy reigns at home.
R.E. Donaldson, Bognor Regis, West Sussex.

Make the wearing of hoods illegal.
Wilf Mason, Leeds.

If mobile phones are used to organise riots, the answer is to turn off the mobile networks. The police would still have their radios and the rest of us managed perfectly well without them in the past.
D.K. Faulkner, Manchester.

And the ever more righteous comments:

The rioters are only doing to the High Street what the bankers did to the country.
Sion Jones, Swansea.

When you cut facilities, slash jobs, abuse power, discriminate, drive people into deeper poverty and shoot people dead while refusing to provide answers or justice, the people will rise up and express their anger and frustration.

This is a prime example of why funding is desperately needed for the inner-city youth services, education and the police force.
Beth Deaken, Bolton-on-Dearne, South Yorks.

To be fair, I cherry picked the few bad ones. Most of the comments make a lot more sense than these.

And some were funny. This is my favourite:

The Youth of the Middle East rise up for basic freedoms. The Youth of London rise up for HD-ready 42in plasma TVs.
Mslulurose

And this:

Consider the college students who face the curtailment of their studies when the education maintenance allowance is cut; consider the school-leavers who face the demoralising prospect of huge debts after university.
Jennie Sleeman, Honiton, Devon.

Consider the lillies.....
