Does this deserve a thread of its own?

Three men have been run over and killed as they protected property in a second night of violence in Birmingham.

The men aged 31, 30 and 20 were hit by a car in Winson Green. They were taken to City Hospital where about 200 people from the Asian community gathered.

Looks like this is going to get racial.

Rest in Peace. My sincere condolances.

"People came out of prayers [at a local mosque] and they were protecting the area.

"They were standing on the side of the road and the car just came and ran them over."

Mohammed Shakiel, 34, a carpenter, said the men "lost their lives for other people".

"They weren't standing outside a mosque, a temple, a synagogue or a church - they were standing outside shops where everybody goes.

"They were protecting the community as a whole."

Another eyewitness said the victims were thrown into the air after a car mounted the kerb where they were standing.
Just heard witnesses saying it all happened within 3 or 4 seconds.

Father giving CPR to his son and another man. Both died. CPR or BCD?

RIP. Condolences to family and friends.

Hope the bastards are caught, and they are stupid enough to resist arrest.

Tariq Jahan, whose son Haroon Jahan died is one dignified man.

He has asked for no revenge or retaliation, just for the law to run its course.

And time & privacy to grieve for his son.

you're right- isn't it a pity those scum who started all this couldn't take the same attitude.

All South Asians defending local shops, brave, hit and run driver, bastard. Families are calling for restraint, that's admirable. If this clicks into a race mode it could get really nasty.

does anyone else not think, this driver of the car could possiblely of thought these defenders where in fact looters and maby he thought his car and himself where in danger of being attacked so he just drove though them, how would people react if it became clear that these dead guys where infact looters and the car driver paniced when confronted with a crowd

Bit of a random theory there.

I'm surprised it hasn't kicked off already on the back of this. Blacks and Asians are split into clearly defined groups in London, Birmingham and Manchester.

I think you'll find both groups are horrible to Women and Gays.

Time will tell when plod lay charges.... Murder and it is likely the car driver intended to rob or loot. Manslaughter and very possible it was a tragic misunderstanding leading to an accident. At the moment we don't know anything other than the local plod have arrested someone.

Also the Turkish community and Sikh community in Southall have also took to the streets to defend their communities against the looters.
