According to our reader who sent this in Barking is basically a ghetto in the East of London, dominated by black gangs and Muslims. The majority population is black and Muslim. The 200 mob is attributed to Muslims because blacks don’t tend to collect a whole big mob to attack police – they run. Blacks don’t have the unity. Whenever Muslims fight, they quickly signal to others to jump in and join. They have a huge network that constantly roam around with a hundred eyes looking for trouble, keeping an eye what’s going on. News spread in seconds. In addition, the original report was written by a Muslim ‘journalist’ in the Barking and Degenham Post.
It’s interesting to note that in 1948 (see the b/w photo below) Barking’s population was a mere 168,000 natives and with very low crime. Today it’s around 190,000 and known for being a deeply criminalized area. What’s the biggest change? Not in the volume but in the demographics. The Muslim population of Barking and Dagenham grew by 257% (18372) in 2011 alone. Pakistanis, Indian Muslims, Bangladeshi’s and blacks converted to Islam make up the largest Muslim demographics in the area.

The shocking moment a mob of 200 youths armed with baseball bats, poles embedded with nails, knives and acid have a mass brawl with police has been captured on camera.
Erupting outside a branch of McDonald’s in Barking, east London, the fight involved young people in their late teens and early twenties
During the dramatic footage, a melee of yobs throw themselves at each other as they rain down punches, while police officers do their best to make arrests and disperse the gang.
Haul: Weapons confiscated by police after the brawl included a collection of knives, wood with nails sticking out (both pictured) and even acid.
Police bosses have since announced that it will increase patrols on Barking’s streets until the end of the school term, which suggests that students could be among those fighting.
A section 60 order will also be put in place which gives officers the power to stop and search anyone they believe could be carrying a weapon.
Chief Supt Sultan Taylor, from Barking and Dagenham police, said: ‘We have had a lot of positive feedback from the community.
‘We are working in partnership with the council and schools to prevent any further incidents.’

A spokesman from Barking and Dagenham council added: ‘We want to reassure the community as well as pupils and parents across the borough to ensure there isn’t a recurrence of such an incident.
‘The council, police and schools are working closely together to establish why this happened and have taken appropriate action to prevent further incidents.’
