Prime Minister David Cameron blames the riots that shook Britain over the past 10 days on a “slow-motion moral collapse … in parts of our country,” he said Monday. Cameron listed problems including “Irresponsibility. Selfishness. Behaving as if your choices have no consequences. Children without fathers. Schools without discipline. Reward without effort. Crime without punishment. Rights without responsibilities. Communities without control,” in a speech in his constituency in Oxfordshire. And he promised that the government will “review every aspect of our work to mend our broken society” in the coming weeks. Thousands of people have been arrested and processed through courts working around the clock since violence erupted over the killing of a man in London during a police operation. Police arrested a suspect late Sunday over the killing of another man during the ensuing riots. The 24-year-old was the sixth person arrested in connection with the shooting of Trevor Ellis in the London neighborhood of Croydon on August 8. Two other men are due in court in Birmingham Monday, charged with murder over the hit-and-run deaths of three men during the riots. The two, ages 26 and 17, were ordered to appear in Birmingham Crown Court on Monday. Police in London announced Monday they had arrested 1,593 people over violence, disorder and looting since riots broke out just over a week ago. Some 926 of those people have been charged, they said. Residents say the three victims in the hit-and-run in Birmingham were mowed down by a car while protecting businesses from looters in Britain’s second largest city. -CNN

LONDON (AP) — Facial recognition technology being considered for London’s 2012 Games is getting a workout in the wake of Britain’s riots, a senior police chief told The Associated Press on Thursday, with officers feeding photographs of suspects through Scotland Yard’s newly updated face-matching program.
Chief Constable Andy Trotter, who is helping London police in the wake of the riots, said the department’s sophisticated software was being used to help find those suspected of being involved in the worst unrest London has seen in a generation.
But he cautioned that facial recognition makes up only a fraction of the police force’s efforts, saying tips have mostly come from traditional sources, such as still images captured from closed circuit cameras, pictures gathered by officers, footage shot by police helicopters or images snapped by members of the public.
“There’s a mass of evidence out there,” Trotter said in a telephone interview. “The public are so enraged that people who wouldn’t normally come forward are helping us — especially when they see their neighbors are coming back with brand new TVs.”
The facial-recognition technology used by police treats the human face like a grid, measuring the distance between a person’s nose, eyes, lips and other features. It has recently been upgraded, according to an article published last year in Scotland Yard’s bimonthly magazine, “The Job.”
The March 2010 article said that the new program has been shown to work far better than older versions of the technology, with one expert quoted as saying that it had shown promise in identifying people from high-quality, face-on shots taken off of surveillance photographs, mobile phones, passports or the Internet.
A law enforcement official told the AP that to use the technology “you have to have a good picture of a suspect and it is only useful if you have something to match it against. In other words, the suspect already has to have a previous criminal record.”
He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss ongoing investigations.
A press officer with Scotland Yard — who also spoke anonymously, in line with force policy — confirmed that facial recognition technology was at the police’s disposal, although he gave few other details. He said that generally the technology would only be used to help identify those suspected of serious crimes, such as assault, and that in most cases disseminating photographs to the general public remains a far cheaper and more effective way of finding suspects. – Yahoo News
The Beast from the Earth “Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; he had two horns like a lamb, but he sounded like a dragon. He exercises all the authority of the first beast on his behalf and compels the earth and those who live on it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed (when it failed as the “League of Nations”). He also performs great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth before people. He deceives those who live on the earth because of the signs that he is permitted to perform on behalf of the beast, telling those who live on the earth to make an image of the beast who had the sword wound yet lived. He was permitted to give a spirit (armed power) to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast could both speak and cause whoever would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. And he requires everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to be given a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark: the beast’s name or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:11-17
This beast is the United States and Britain combined in strength. The first beast is the United Nations, because it represents all powers on this planet aligned against Yahweh and His Son Christ, to try and thwart the Kingdom. But the United Nations has no real military strength except that given of the two dual powers acting in unity; the USA being the strongest of the pair and bearing the MARK of the BEAST that the Anti-Christ springs forth from.
“And he requires everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to be given a mark on his right hand or on his forehead,”
The USA will eventually require that those accepting the Mark must also worship the image of the beast (the United Nations), that it keeps in power by its powerful weaponry. It is the USA that shares the Mark of the 666 with its benefactor and Father Satan. The first beast is the beast that is used to unify Mankind under one rulership, but its power comes from the DRAGON that is aligned with the second beast – the USA. Without the USA, the first beast (United Nations) cannot function. In the alliance of the dual power, Britain backs its counterpart; this forms the dual powers that work together within the second beast’s power structure. The dominating power is that of the USA. It is the power that forces the worship of the image of the beast. At its head is the Dragon that takes his place in world rulership as the Anti-Christ.
LONDON (Reuters) – Thousands of policemen prepared to deploy on London’s streets on Tuesday night to head off rioters and looters who have rampaged through parts of the British capital virtually unchecked for the past three nights.
Community leaders sought to explain the violence, the worst in London for decades, as rooted in the growing disparities in wealth and opportunity in this huge, multi-ethnic city.
But many Londoners have been stunned by the looting in which gangs ransacked shops, carting off clothes, shoes and electronic goods, torched cars and defied the police.
“This is criminality pure and simple and it has to be confronted and defeated,” British Prime Minister David Cameron told reporters after he cut short a family holiday in Tuscany to return home to deal with the crisis.
“People should be in no doubt that we will do everything necessary to restore order to Britain’s streets,” he said.
Indicating the intensity of the situation, Cameron also recalled parliament from its summer recess, a rare move.
The unrest poses an added challenge to Cameron as Britain’s economy struggles to grow while his government slashes public spending and raises taxes to help eliminate a budget deficit — moves that some commentators say has aggravated the plight of youth’s in London’s inner-cities. – Yahoo News
The civil unrest is also destined for the United States – Years back, this ministry encouraged people to move out of the cities and if necessary, to form communes and pool their resources. What is happening now is the reason that was suggested. Soon, this nation will shut down on the day to day working population level and military law will become the norm. People will become virtual prisoners in their homes as lines of communication with the outside world are cut. You will receive broadcasts of governmental warnings to all people that tell you what you are to do and not to do until order is restored. If you are in a city, you will not be able to get out. What will later transpire, is the birth of the new world order of Satan’s design. Freedom will become a thing of the past until the LOZ come back to crush the nations on this planet and execute all of the evil people. Be prepared for what is just ahead. In one hour things can change.
Syria: UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has urged Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad to “immediately end” the use of troops against civilian protesters. In a telephone call to the Syrian leader, Mr Ban also said the use of mass arrests against protesters must be stopped, the UN said. It was the first contact between the two men since April. President Assad is facing increasing international condemnation for using troops and tanks to quell protests. Meanwhile, a leading activist said on Sunday that Syrian talks had launched a pre-dawn attack on the eastern city of Deir al-Zour. Rami Abdel Rahman, of the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, told AFP news agency that shelling was reported from at least three suburbs. The report cannot be verified. Activists say about 1,650 civilians have been killed and tens of thousands arrested across Syria since the anti-government demonstrations began in March. The UN Security Council recently issued a statement condemning the crackdown. -BBC
LONDON (AP) – The riot that tore through parts of north London’s deprived Tottenham neighborhood has cast a pall over Britain’s capital, echoing an earlier era of racial unrest, while spreading malaise through a city preparing to host the Olympic Games. Eight officers were hospitalized after a peaceful protest against the shooting death of a young man degenerated into a Saturday night rampage, with rioters torching a double-decker bus, destroying patrol cars and trashing a shopping mall. Looters descended on the area around midnight, setting buildings alight, and piling stolen goods into cars and shopping carts. Sirens could be heard across the capital as authorities rushed reinforcements to the scene. “This is just a glimpse into the abyss,” former Metropolitan Police Commander John O’Connor told Sky News television Sunday. “Someone’s pulled the clock back and you can look and see what’s beneath the surface. And what with the Olympic Games coming up, this doesn’t bode very well for London.” –My Way News
