"For years here at PM, we've covered crisis survival tips. But the ongoing riots in the North London neighborhood of Tottenham, along with real-time data from Amazon, have provided a snapshot of what people are looking for during this crisis. The U.K. version of the sites Movers and Shakers page, which keeps a running ranking of the most active items on the retailers site, shows that these nine items are surging this week.

I want an escape ladder! So when you visit, I can go over the balcony to greet you.

true, bu theres be alot of dead peole if that were the case.
alot of these rioters are nothing but kids...
one 16 yr old rioter told a BBC reporter that hell keep rioting untill he caught and then hell do it again when they let him out because at 16 theres nothing they can do about it... he then said "the worse thats gonna happen is my mums gonna ground me..."

its terrifying the attitude of these people, and nowhere in the uk is safe, the rioting has moved from london into most of the major (and smaller) cities in southern and mid western uk, manchester city center, livepool, salford...hit very hard and its still going on.
these bits of kids are even destorying their OWN homes!

now imagine what would happen if a real crisis had occured...
theyve had a major meltdown over one incident (which a bunch of hoodlum kids took advantage of)...
the uk would be burnt to the ground if a real emergency came up...
