    What next? Ban the telly and the newspapers? Instead of facing up to an ugly situation where the London Police might have shot an innocent person, the govt. wants to clampdown on communication and curb citizen rights.
    BBM isn't the problem, the problem is shoddy police work and the govt burying its head in the sand like all govts around the world.
    I thought Britain was different. Just goes to show that its not that much different than the Arab despots.

    even if they shut down BBM, there's plenty of messaging options like whatsapp or kik

    Sorry to hear about your business...I was just looking at a bunch of the news reports and things don't look good over there.

    I fear we'll start seeing similar things here in the US...Philadelphia is having similar problems with flash mobs.

    Thoughts and prayers for all the innocent people hurt by this violence.

    The London Police are clearly inept and want to shift focus to BBM.

    thanks..... makes me ashamed to be british, but these thugs have no respect, an oppatunity to gain from themselves, a big sony warehouse was set alight today, they could not loot it, so set it alite, no regard for anyone inside it, just for there own greed, they should face manslaughter charges too, they fail to realise that they are making a recesion in this country even worse.....i could carry on but

    Oh, I am terribly sorry to hear that. I do agree that the rioters ought to be caught, and someone's head over at the police department must roll too. Saw the news, and that situation got out of control too fast.

    It is the typical idiocy of politicians hopping on anything they can use as a scapegoat when if you look beyond the greed of the looting yobs some of the current government's policies make this kind of thing more likely to happen.

    Stupid really, if they didn't have bbm, they use another im, other social media (presumably how they got pins in first place) or equally likely sms.

    I heard about the flash mobs in philadelphia but I thought it was suspected to be mostly organized on facebook?

    Here's another video of someone on a phone. But I can't tell if it's a blackberry.

    Philly is a wreck right now. I hope Mayor Nutter can get this mess under control.

    Its not about whether the mobs were organized on bbm or fb; bbm is just a convenient scapegoat because its secure. Its about a mindset of entitlement and no concern for others.

    What do you expect from a government, that puts street cameras at every road crosses? London reminds me City 17 from the game Half Life 2.

    It is a loss of family values due to rampant socialism, the BBM was just a tool used by asocial pukes to destroy other people's hard work. It is sad though to see the opportunistic politicians grasp at such a straw to villify. Of course halting BBM would p*** off the rest of us who don't use it for evil.

    There is no thought nor concern of these youth for anything but themselves. This is happening in the USA as well. Until the family is back to being important and NOT the government, this downward spiral shall continue.

    When you raise generation upon generation of people who get paid to do nothing, the moral strength of hard work will be lost. The upside is it will show how unfettered socialism will destroy a once powerful and proud people.

    Last I heard from the UK, all one must do is work a job for a bit and then they can receive the dole packet for life! That is some rathole that begets. Gosh, there is nothing better to destroy human spirit than taking away the rewards of a good work ethic.

    Let's hope the good old liberals who made such ridiculous socialism happen get their property destroyed, they then may learn the error of their ways.
