A Moment of Reflection: London
Those who do general searches for game news will no doubt notice today that Sony’s London warehouse was set ablaze yesterday. For those of you without an eye on world news, you should know that this is just one incident amid a wave of violence overtaking London, and surrounding areas in the UK.
The reasons given are myriad, but the result is singular, angry people lashing out at their home, their fellow citizens, in a misguided attempt at forcing ‘change’. Or, for some, its simply the joy of lunacy, of chaos.
At Padinga, I think I speak for all of us when we tell the rioters of London to calm the fuck down. Protests are one thing, but looting private businesses, home invasions, and last night a young man was shot to death while trying to hide in his car… its all too much. You’re unhappy with daily life, got it, now its time to stop. The ‘power’ you’re trying to bring down and protest are untouched and unaffected by the riots. You’re only hurting your fellow man, the working class, families.
To any who have lost a home, business, or health to the riots, we offer our condolences.
