You can always rely on the left to shoot themselves in the foot even when they think they are offering sound advice

If you think that you might be identified from photos or footage from recent events, then here's some advice....
DON'T panic. The photos released are not necessarily evidence. Just because the police have a blurry photo that might be of you doesn't mean they know who you are.
DON'T Hand yourself in. The police often use the psychological pressure of knowing they have your picture to persuade you to “come forward” when they don't know who you are or have any evidence against you.
DON'T assume that because you can identify yourself in a video, a judge will be able to as well. “That isn't me” has got many a person off before.
DO get rid of your clothes. There is no chance of suggesting the person in the video is not you if the clothes they are wearing have been found in your wardrobe. Get rid of ALL clothes you were waring when you were out, incluing YOUR SHOES, your bag and any distinctive jewellery you were wearing at the ttime.
DO keep a low profile for a while. The police will be on the look-out at other demos for people they have put on their “wanted” list.
DO think about changing your appearance. Perhaps now is a good time foa make-over. Get a haircut and colour, grow a beard, wear glasses.
DO keep your house clean. Get rid of spray cans, demo related stuff and dodgy tests/photos on your phone. Don't make life easy for them by having drugs, weapons or anything else illegal in the house.
DO be careful who you speak about this to. Admit your involvement ONLY to people you really trust. Be very careful what you say on the internet.
DO try and contrl the nerves and panic. Waiting for a knock on the door is stressful in the extreme, but you need to find a way to get on with life as normal. Otherwise you'll be serving the sentence before you know it.

This leaflet was being handed out to the rioters in England  by the obnoxious UAF who seem to be under the mistaken impression that the events of the last few days were the harbingers of some sort of socialist revolution and/or protest against government cuts of which they were clearly nothing of the kind. The riots were simply about looting and violence, yes I know the excuse that was used initially, but that hardly excuses what happened in any other area or anything that happened after the initial protest at the police station.
Yes, I know what they are doing isn't precisely illegal, but it does show the mentality of some of those on the left who cannot understand the misery and wrecked lives and businesses these scum have left behind them.
I doubt you'll see this on the BBC any time soon.

Handed out by UAF, a bunch that Cameron supports? Good God! This is disgraceful. How many decent trade unionists do you think will be aware of the fact that part of their sub is going towards funding this outfit and its harmful activities?

See here for an interesting (albeit lengthy) take:

Might be very far fetched, but... it did seem all rather organised, and the very people who have experience with flashmobs and how to organise them into riots on a large scale and also how to mess the cops around effectively are the UAF and the UK Uncut people.

Here is this English translation of the article:

The 'Black Block' in Germany is no joke at all when it comes to organising and celebrating assorted riots, and they will have crossfertilised with the Bristol crowd and passed on 30 years of public disorder experience.

Captain Haddock said...

This "advice" is nothing more, nor less that instruction on how to pervert the course of justice ..

And if members of the UAF were handing them out .. then those responsible should be arrested forthwith, for incitement to pervert the course of justice ..

In the same way that some "Twitter" users have been arrested for transmitting incitement to riot ..

If the individuals responsible cannot be immediately identified, then the leadership of the organisation should be held to account for the actions of their members ..
