The video filming police officers beating the riot looters was uploaded on YouTube yesterday. BBC had claimed that the beating was taking place on Jutland Street, near Manchester’s Piccadilly Station.

The exact time and the location of the event cannot be verified. But it can been seen clearly in the footage that running police officers knocking down teenager looters.

Some people are for the police and one  netizen Essaiel say that the police “should hit them more.”

Another netizen named blueray1969 says that: “Hooray – about bloody time. More of this please – it’s what we pay our taxes for – law and order – not scumbags cycling round on stolen bikes.”

However, other people are confused with the video. One of them, named GrimPixels says that: “I do think myself that they should be more aggressive and use live rounds depending on how hardcore the riot is but I don’t know the story behind these teenagers riding bikes?

“It just looks like there are some teens riding their bikes and the cops had a bad day so they destroyed them? lol. Could the poster or someone tell me why these teens were attacked in specific?”

In brief, most of the comments are for the police. It is obvious that people are angry about the riots that disturb their normal lives and make the country full of anxiety.

Early on the BBC News, David Cameron says the looters are making the society sick. The police will have every source if they need. He mentions that: “Every effort will be made to bring the looters to justice.”
