Riots in Swansea

Weak police response to rioting chavscum in Wales. NO, repeat no reported arrests so far.

This on the BBC,

Mayhill: Swansea rioters face robust action, police vow - BBC News

Time for a fully armed riot squad on the lines of the CRS, Carabinieri or Guardia Civile in the United Kingdom?.

I think my force would struggle to put together PSU (public order) serial at short notice to deal with something like that however a fully trained serial might not have been needed. Firearms, land sharks and as many response officers as possible might have been enough to stop the trouble getting worse.

What is not apparent from the article or the news bulletins I have seen is why there was a riot. How did a vigil for a 19 year old that collapsed and died last Wednesday turn into mayhem?

Mayhill, Lower Hafod, laughingly referred to as LA (aka Lower 'Afod) doesn't have a great reputation as you can see here with 168 assorted crimes recorded in March 2021.

Not a million miles away but have spent entertaining hours with a few lads from LA on assorted sites around the globe!

Agreed about the high jinks !!

Land sharks. That did make me chuckle.
