The London Riots are big news, its gone far past the riot phase and is now just a bunch of people stealing from people. One of the worst cases is theres this guy sitting on the side of the road, he is bleeding and not in a good condition at all. A group of people help him to his feet, but it is soon learnt that there not helpful at all and they steal a PSP from his bag. It was caught on camera and Sony have agreed that if they can get ahold of this man they will send him a brand new PSP.

Its a small story but it's nice to see something good happen out of this whole thing, it's nice to see Sony helping out to. They have been in trouble too as a huge Sony Warehouse burnt down resulting in a huge loss of Sony TV's and consoles. But man those people who stole it are fucking twats, how dare they steal from a guy bleeding on the side of the road.

London is getting further and further down on my list of places I'd someday like to visit.

Wauw that whole situation in England has gone way too far. It's sad to see how sick/cold/disgusting some people become in these situations.

Too bad when I got my 4th YLOD this past Sunday. Sony basically said " go fuck yourself" and pay for the repair again. 
It's your problem not ours. 
Not a lot of goodwill towards Sony right now.

I have to admire Sony for being able to do that. However, I'd very much like to find the thieves before getting some power tools....

I have a lot of things I'd like to say about all this and how it makes me feel about humanity as a whole, but I'm just going to refrain from that rant and just sum it all up by saying, "people fucking suck."

For anyone that wants to know, Ashraf is doing okay in hospital however he cannot speak due to his broken jaw, regardless of this he is supposedly in high spirits and has stated that he does not intend on moving house from the area where he was attacked.

I saw this the other day. I feel bad for that guy, but at least he's getting "something" back, even if it's as insignificant as his PSP when put in the perspective of the whole situation. Sony, on the other hand, is just being Sony and taking advantage of this to make some good PR. I'm pretty sure that if this hadn't been caught on tape and seen all over the globe, Sony wouldn't have lifted a finger to give a PSP to this man.

Didn't Sony replace someone's stolen PS3? I'm going to start buying Sony stuff and cancel my insurance.

You could have your friends stage a robbery on camera, post it to the Internet, get Sony to replace it, and repeat until you have infinite PSPs.

It's the walk that really pisses me off. The cunt doesn't just walk away, he fucking struts off like he is the greatest person around for what he did. Shame people like that never get what they deserve.

Sony should just hire a hitman (or maybe even THE hitman) to take out the guy that stole it.  That would be much cooler.

I hope so, but that doesn't mean they won't get off on being punished.

Pretty fucking sad that people can sink so low. Regardless of the fact that Sony did this for good PR, they still did it. Good job, Sony.

@JoeyRavn: To be fair, if this had not been seen around the globe, how would Sony have known to reimburse him for the PSP in the first place? I see what you're saying though and it is totally true that this may just be a PR stunt to us, but to the guy the PSP was stolen from, this could be an invaluable emotional lift to him after the traumatic event even if it's just an 'insignificant PSP

Fucking chav scum. 
 
To many human rights protecting these fuckers. If the police beat that shit up the media would turn against them and act like chavs are the victims. It's disgusting my tax money gets given as benefits to these low life filth, it would be better spent on rounding them up and putting a bullet in the back of their heads. Send them to Iraq and use them as target practice it's the most useful thing they could give back to society.

Every time I watch a movie where 'bad guys' want to destroy the human race because they feel we aren't worthy or something like that, I always ask myself "why us?"
 
Then i see shit like that video and I'm like, "oh."

I didn't say it was an "insiginificant PSP". I said that, given what he had just been through, those scumbags stealing his PSP wasn't the worst thing to worry about. Getting his PSP back won't put those assholes in jail or heal his wounds, but at least he can recover *something* of what was stolen from him. If not his dignity, at least his PSP.

I shouldn't even bother saying this, but it was quite clear that I wasn't trolling the PSP. Don't twist my words, for fuck's sake.

@Ragdrazi:  no i understand that and there were several riots through out that decade for 
diffrent things but what i meant is that sertain indeviduals would allow them selfs to deform back 
to a state of chaos over some thing they probibly dont even understand properly but as for most of the riots 
in the uk in the 80s most of them were about 1 of 2 things either the recession or that minorities felt opressed
