That's right, they were pretty much targeted, especially in London. Hell, even a friend of mine in nearby Weymouth was attacked, and had his iPod earphones stolen (guy just pulled them hoping to get the iPod...).
It's sad, but I could never imagine it going to this level.
It never surprises me just how low wretched 'humans' are willing to go, we claim to be so evolved, so wise. We're just savages. I hope they catch the beasts and give em the death sentence or whatever they do in the USA. Here they'd get 2 years with good behaviour (which is any behaviour as long as it's not really bad). I'm totally sickened.
