Sucks

These guys are working hard to get music out there, just to get burned down by ignorant bastards who have no idea what they are rioting about or even why they are rioting

Can't even believe what's happening here in the UK. People are copying this in other cities now too, I just hope that it's stamped out before it gets worse.

Also, this news is really sad

This is pretty bad news, not only just for the warehouse, but for the targeted private houses as well...

Those riots are really moronic, they don't have a reason anymore either; it's just "Hey let's all be morons and break stuff!"

At first I was hoping some grassroots political movements could reign in the riots to turn them into something a bit more progressive and focused, but now it's clear that this shit is just for giggles. The unemployed are biting the hand that feeds them, and it looks like taxpaying Londoners are going to be footing the bill once more.

Sadly, there's no coverage of this in the US, really. We're too upset about being downgraded by the S&P to give a rat's ass.
