People Are Awesome: Watch This Badass London Lady Stand Up to the Rioters

A wise woman in Hackney makes an impassioned plea for rationality in London. Let's hope people listen.


While rioters continued burning buildings and looting in London tonight, one anonymous West Indian woman stood up the destructive masses and gave them a piece of her mind. This video, shot by Hackney resident Matthew Moore, is a bit NSFW, but we suggest putting in your earphones and giving a listen. The lady's wise righteousness is a thing of beauty, and a small glimmer of hope in the madness.

"This is about a man who got fucking shot in Tottenham," she screams, "this ain't about having fun and busting up the place!" Preach.
