    To paraphrase one of the article's comments, looking at that motley crew I bet it's the hardest they've worked in a while!

    You really need to consider your life if you get up in the morning to steal water from marathon runners. I hope it doesn't hinder the marathon runners too much they've been training for months, if not years for this event.
    Absolutely pathetic

    White people focus their energy on getting heavily discounted widescreen TVs in Tesco on Black Friday.

    It's in Deptford (London borough of Lewisham). There's a large black population in the borough. Although there's also a significant Vietnamese community here (the largest in the UK). A lot of them live in the social housing estates on the road where the video was shot.

    The water was left out for the runners in today's London marathon. The way this local mob thought they could just turn up and help themselves to something that wasn't meant for them is astounding. They even turn up with suitcases and trolleys.

    It's absolutely shameful.

    Thoughts?
    I agree. Crime is often bad.
