England has been faced with a three day long riot, “performed by ‘thugs’ who have been indulging in devious criminal activities such as looting, vandalising, thieving, robbing, attacking police officers and even attacking fire fighters as they try to drench fires”,explained the British Prime Minister.
Prime Minister David Cameron is seemingly taking every action to win the fight for his beloved country and is condemning the scenes shown on the television that are causing one to think that his country is unfit for law-abiding individuals.
In the statement released on Tuesday 9th August 2011; Mr. Cameron, noted that he has met with the Government’s Cabinet Office Briefing Room A (COBRA) committee where they have discussed the necessary actions that are essential to assist the police in restoring order in the streets of London and other parts of the country. He has also met with the top cop in the Metropolitan Police Force and the Home Secretary to further discuss the issue at hand.
Over 1500 courageous law enforcement officers have taken to the streets to secure and return London to its usual state of calm. The Metropolitan Police has also blocked and cancelled requests of officers who thinking about vacation in an effort to solicit the extra assistance needed.
A total of 450 people have already been arrested with the Prime Minister sending a clear message to the other mischievous individuals. The Prime Minister Cameron disclosed that the government will make sure that court procedures and processes are speeded up and people should expect to see more, arrests in the days to come.
The statement also highlighted a clear message by Mr. Cameron; once the individual feels that he or she is old enough to perform the wrongful doings, he or she will be old enough to feel the full force of the law and face the punishments. This message was geared to the criminals, who the prime minister said, are not only wrecking the lives of others communities, but also their own life.
Parliament will be recalled for a day on Thursday 11th August to discuss other ways to combat the issue.
