Woolwich Riots - Aftermath

This evening I noticed this wall of graffiti appearing where the Whetherspoon pub used to be. 

In keeping with the new mood of intolerance, there were quite a few messages of hate on there. In fact it was pretty much filled with messages of hate - demanding cruel and unusual punishments to be inflicted on all alleged rioters and their families - eviction, withdrawal of benefits...while satisfying public anger, its hard to see how making whole families homeless and destitute will help the situation that was caused by poverty in the first place.
