    There is nothing particualr unusual about this but what is that it has been blacked out by the mainstream media, why. The riot occured 8th August 2009 yet there is no report of it on the mainstream news and even rags such as the Sun have had the story removed again why.

    With the pictures I did see it appeared Asian men were attacking white protestors, is this why its being kept quite, one can understand why given the current circumstances but keeping it out of the news does not make the problem go away does it.

    The article seems to use allot of ink to say very little. Not much out there at all. Weird.

    Reads to me like the football thugs and some minority thugs decided to have a rumble. It sounded organized according to that report.

    That's not what I think of when I think of a riot.

    Sounds like a small demonstration was ambushed by a larger one and no detail is given about the make up of the larger one. There is an avoidance here. A fear of spelling something out?

    Yes its quite normal for an event to be aired quickly and never mentioned again. But irrespective of the group demonstrating and their reasons that does not give another group the right to go and attack them which is what happened. It would be interesting to see who the Police arrested and for what.

    Someone fucked up. This was supposed to be hidden. Why am I reading about it?

    Chief Inspector Payne obviously didn't get the "keep this quiet" memo :lol:
