Well, If They’re Going To Film It…

…I guess the YONA meme can be retired!
A video has been posted online of the moment a 'mass brawl' erupted outside a busy south London shopping centre.
The footage, uploaded onto live streaming app Periscope, shows dozens of young people gathering outside Centrale shopping centre in Croydon on Tuesday before a fight breaks out.
‘Young people’, eh?
A Metropolitan Police Service spokesman said: “Police were called to North End Road, Croydon, at 5:25pm on Tuesday, 19 April, to reports of a fight involving a large group of people.
“Officers were called to the scene and dispersed the fight.
“There has been one arrest.”
I have issues with the descriptor of ‘people’, frankly.

Still, it must help the police enormously that these idiots are filming their own evidence now.

The police may as well just sit home, watch World Star Hip Hop (google it if you're unfamiliar with its delights), and arrest everyone after the event.

It's lucky that those with criminal tendencies and behavioural problems generally are not very bright. Without that and luck not many would be apprehended as our police services are staffed by many that also not very bright and have a tendency to be inept. I do not know the stats but I believe they show that the percentage of solved crime is very low and the conviction rate even lower.

Admin, if not okay please remove!

Our facebook group “selfless” is spending this month spreading awareness on prostate cancer & research with a custom t-shirt design. Purchase proceeds will go to cancer.org, as listed on the shirt and shirt design.

People who film their own fights are almost certainly against the use of CCTV.

Just one of life's little ironies

That's worse than Eurovision!

Luckily, police need only be a few watts brighter... :)

I'll allow you this one.

Heh!
