UK Prime Minister David Cameron on Wednesday said that he will use whatever methods are necessary to quell riots plaguing England for three days, saying, Nothing is off the table."

One of the methods Cameron authorized police to use against unruly crowds of rioters is water cannons, something that has never been used in Britain.

Slamming the behavior of rioters, Cameron told reporters, "There are pockets of our society that are not only broken, but frankly sick ... It is a complete lack of responsibility in parts of our society, people allowed to feel that the world owes them something."
