London Riots Coverage

Today marks the third day of rioting and clashes between people and the police in various neighborhoods around London. The unrest was sparked by an incident that led to the killing of a man, Mark Duggan last week by police. The details of the encounter are unclear but it is reported that it was an arrest attempt gone wrong and the officers were armed with Heckler & Koch submachine guns.

Like the recent protests in North Africa and the Middle East, these events are being primarily led by the youth. This rioting is clearly a manifestation of the anger and frustration that has built up in these communities…and it’s spreading.

Check out the following coverage including video of the police in Brixton trying to break up the crowds with attack dogs on leashes.
