CCTV critical in catching rioters

The following report is from the Times of India: One by one, rioters who ran amok on the streets of London and other cities are being arrested by police officials, who aided by CCTV images have come knocking on the doors, even as courts sat through the night to dispense justice expeditiously. More than 1,300 arrests have been made since the unrest began on Saturday, officials said. The arrests came as Prime Minister David Cameron declared in the House of Commons today, "We will track you down, we will find you, we will charge you, we will punish you. You will pay for what you have done". Among those who participated in the rioting is an 11-year-old girl in Nottingham, reflecting the fact that most of those responsible were in their teens or younger. Those arrested included youngsters who attend grammar schools or are employed. More than 100 arrest warrants were executed Thursday morning in London, police said.
