Looting in London

Anthony Faiola reports in the WaPo:

Lawless looting and raging fires engulfed swaths of London on Monday as the wave of civil unrest that has gripped this sprawling capital escalated sharply, including riots in a neighborhood not far from that of the athletes' village and shiny stadiums built for the 2012 Olympic Games.
Some people, including the infamous former mayor "Red Ken" Livingstone, predictably tried to make political hay from the riots.  However, others, including, the Home Secretary, see this as simply a case of lawless people seeing a chance to grab free stuff and go on a rampage of destruction.
