I don't know about O sensei, but this gentleman lost his son in a hit and run during the riots, and this is what he has to say:

His speech has been credited with helping to calm things in the local community.
Oisin.
Yes, that man has been amazing. They held a peace march there yesterday.

The 'killers' have been found and arrested.

The courts have been open all weekend, 2,500 arrested so far. 1,200 sentenced.

One guy yesterday got arrested after the laptop he stole had a security cam gadget and so sent a picture of him and his whereabouts to police.

David. Don't be so easily led. As usual criminal gangs did take advantage of the situation as happens in all mass disturbances.
