Anarchy in the UK - London Riots

Recommended Posts

In the land of Banksy and Dubstep trouble is brewing.

Last two nights London has suffered the worst riots in 20 years with people taking to the streets, fighting police, burning cars and buildings and looting homes and businesses.

 

On August 4th police killed 29 year old Mark Duggan in Tottenham, north London, during an arrest. The man allegedly resisted arrest and opened fire on the officers.

People gathered outside a Tottenham police station to protest, including the victims friends and family. Riots followed and have now spread to other London neighborhoods.

yeah i always feel like this type of thing is going to start happening in the states with all the murders by

police being brought to light, but everyone is too scared/complacent and nothing ever happens except

some peaceful sit-ins, or a mild protest.

So they're rioting because cops shot back at a dude that was shooting at them?

 

I thought you only riot if it's police brutality and the dude wasn't posing a threat.

There aren't actually any reports saying the police were fired at as far as I am aware. Although they did recover a gun.
