This is ridiculous. The police couldn't do anything right by people like you. First they cause it by being 'heavy handed' then there are doing anything. Make up your mind.

It's the people of birmingham that are doing this to our city, not the police. The only thing we can do is support the police who are trying to protect our city. Not sure why they bother when this is the thanks they get. You should be ashamed.

Whoever filmed and compiled this should be ashamed. You clearly do not care about the atrocities that are being carried out by idiots, but instead would prefer to rile hatred and a lack of confidence in the police. Until I see you or the self-opinionated individuals you interviewed on the front line, trying to maintain public order, you can keep it shut, and let people do their jobs.
You should feel as ashamed as the people who are rioting in the first place!

so this site and video is totally biased against the police that much is clear - great filming that you would only find people who blame the police for everything - why not try being fair and balanced and showing both sides to these criminal looters

These kids are shooting themselves in the foot. A lot has been done in recent years to improve the image of Birmingham and to make it more attractive for visitors. With this vindictive behaviour, they are telling everyone "stay away; spend your money elsewhere". Ultimately, they will be the ones to suffer most if Birmingham regains its old reputation for being a city of gangs, mass crime and racial confrontations. May they see the light before it's too late.

OMG! What a hilarious video. So biased against the Police you should be ashamed of producing this video. Total propoganda like this fuels the mindless morons to create more havoc and commit crimes.

The funniest part on this video has to be the woman who was told to leave the coffee shop and she was trying to find somewhere to continue her meeting.

Those actions by the Police were for her and other members of the public safety.

So there was no rioting at the time, what if there was a bomb alert, do you stay in the coffee shop till the bomb goes off? I guess she would then complain about the Police not giving enough prior warning!? LOL
