After all that have been said and done (well, mainly said), and now that the riots are becoming a distant memory, and the discussion is about leniency towards those caught, and about 'the causes of crime' and 'alienated underclass', and so on.... just some footage from 16th August, a reminder...

Our Father, which art in prison

As we are happy to loot those who defend...
