|TNB British-style; "Youfs" looting shop in Hackney|
From the Daily Mail story about an incident in Hackney:
Masked rioters on BMX bicycles armed with batons attacked a crowded London bus during the evening rush-hour last night [August 8th], chasing terrified commuters as they tried to escape. The thugs, some as young as eight, forced the driver to stop the double-decker by pelting it with champagne bottles stolen from a nearby Tesco.
About 40 passengers – some carrying screaming toddlers – burst out of the exits and sprinted away. Several commuters fell to the ground during the stampede as about 20 black men wearing balaclavas and riding BMXs chased them. As they ran, one woman screamed: "They are threatening us with big sticks. We have to run for our lives. What have we done to them? We are innocent people just trying to get home."
Kara Mahoney said gangs were targeting white people to rob them. She said: "About five white people just got beaten and robbed. There is a group of them. They hit a photographer and stole her cameras. She had blood gushing down her nose."
Of course, later in the story, the Mail reports that the black rioters were joined by white men, women, and children. Some photos of the action indicate that the disturbances have been taking on a more multiracial character. But this is still the first admission by a media outlet that some blacks were specifically targeting whites for racial reasons.
Here's a Sky News video about the riots in other cities outside of London:

Prime Minister David Cameron plans to recall Parliament. He also said there should be a more robust approach from the police, describing the scenes of the last three nights as sickening, and characterizing the looting and arson were “criminality, pure and simple”. Cameron also promised that those responsible will face the full force of the law. On the other hand, Home Secretary Theresa May seemed to undermine the PM's call for a more robust police response by ruling out the use of water cannon or the Army in London.
British National Party Chairman Nick Griffin has been providing regular updates on Twitter. His most notable Tweet: "On the plus side, the multicult died tonight. Everything is changed. Utterly changed."
