      Can't find a video? You Tube probably took it down. And yes, my idea of the methods of punishment for those 'peace-loving' thugs......... will remain in my mind. I'm not willing to be arrested by a government that loves it's enemies & persecutes it's own people, for posting thoughts on deterrent & retribution.

    Ok. That was just stupid. They are kids. Kids at that age don’t need an excuse to fight. Calling them “gang members” doesn’t make it so; it just makes for a bias byline.

      boys attacking girls and hitting them in the face? They live there and know the gangs, I'm pretty sure.
      btw, MY kids did not need excuses to fight. They were busy being productive, not hanging out waiting for victims at bus stops

        I say bias because you have no idea who those young boys are. They may be Hindus. Those other kids could have started it first before the camera was rolling. The girl was screaming and cursing throughout. All of them, not just the white kids could be considered UK kids, no? To point out a mosque in the back and expect others to jump to conclusions is pandering to a group of people I would consider to stupid for my time. The whole site panders to those who want a reason to hate irrationally. Am I the only one who went through middle-school where everybody piled on? I say they are just kids. Trying to introduce this video as evidence of a muslim-on-non-muslim crime is reaching for a missing rung. That site stinks of low-intelligence.

          Mimi, I think you've made a fair point in that the asian kids 'may' have been Hindus, & 'may' not have been the instigators of violence - although I suspect they were. I can also understand a website with a name like barenakedislam would suggest it's purpose is to instigate witchhunts. It's likely that some who visit the site will be looking for another excuse to arm themselves with hatred & (forgive the term) go paki-bashing, which is mindless racism. I see it as an unapologetic information site designed to be a bit of a shocker & a wake up call for those who are unsure of the gruesomeness of Islam. Had the website had blatant racist leanings, I wouldn't have posted the article in the context that I did.

          there were arrests made in the case. Here is an excerpt from 5 days ago in the Commentator:
          "Counter-terrorism expert and The Commentator Contributing Editor Ghaffar Hussain said: "This incident will most likely turn out to be a local petty squabble between gangs of youths with too much time on their hands. There could be a racial dimension, however, it is highly unlikely the religion is a motivating factor for either side. The over-emphasising of the religion in such cases, and consequent politicisation of common crime, is a worrying trend and one that is being increasingly adopted by the far-right to further demonise British Muslim communities".'
          Here's where I raise my eyebrows. The counter terrorism expert, who is most likely muslim,
          accuses the far right of demonizing British Muslim communities. Perhaps, but whenever I hear implicit in phrases like that "move along nothing to see here, just kooks spouting off conspiracy" I take a second look. The article goes on to say that authorities tweeted that children stay out of the area, and it looked as though people rallied at the site. Clearly, tensions are very high. If there wasn't huge concern, I just don't see people getting out of the chairs in front of the telly to show their anger, unless there was some truth to the tensions.
          Ultimately, GB has some big problems on their hands, and I bet people would be less fearful if they could carry guns.
