England has gone crazy, last night and tonight. Rioting in a good number of cities; I'm glad I live in a small, nondescript town. I've been glued to the news stations all day and night. A police station has been firebombed, buildings burned, cars destroyed. Looters everywhere, stealing crisps and 40'' televisions alike. Crazy. Rumours are floating everywhere, but most of them are bullshit.
There are some heartening photos and stories of people pouring out to defend their communities and to clean up the destruction, but those are tiny things among a lot of madness.
I hope nobody innocent gets hurt. Too many people have already lost their livelihoods, and some had to be evacuated from their homes last night.
