    So it's like "We demand justice for the crimes committed by the cops" *Proceeds to loop shops owned by innocent citizens*
    Police prevent people from looting shops "See, they are brutal we done nothing wrong"

    Apparently this could affect the Spurs match next week, not confirmed though.

    Daily Mail posted:
    Tottenham must wait to hear if the club’s Premier League kick-off at home to Everton on Saturday will be postponed after riots in the area.
    White Hart Lane is less than a mile from Tottenham Police Station, where around 300 people gathered from 5.30pm on Saturday to protest over the fatal shooting of Mark Duggan, 29.

    More like "We demand justice that may or may not be necessary for the potential crimes that may or may not have been committed by the cops"

    Sky news just said that the bullet found in the police officer's radio, was police issue, so I don't know what to think at the moment.

    Police issue bullet? What type of weapons would a police officer normally carry?

    That could mean anything, I haven't kept up on what the armed police in London carry but I assume they use 9mm pistols which I would further assume aren't that hard to get hold of so I think this is just sky news being terrible.

    Maybe the police have to use specific ammo, like NATO have NATO rounds

    9mm/45acp are the standard NATO/Military/Police round so i'd assume that.

    Depends on the department's constable (or some other high-rank official) but they are generally 9mm pistols (glock 17s, 26s or the Sig Sauer P226) for the armed officers. Also, armed officers may carry tasers. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_UK_police_firearms)

    I have yet to see hordes of Chinese or Polish youths stab someone to death because they live in a different postcode or they showed apparent 'disrespect'.
    Trust me, it gangs in general. You'll also find it in white English gangs, Mexican gangs, Italian gangs, Somalian gangs, Japanese gangs and pretty much every other country. Gangs do this shit.

    It's pretty funny if you go to Mark Duggan "defend groups" you will find names like, Chris'tedz Poole, Durelle Ching, Chloe Charliejaydee Gee, Bianca Suarve Lopez, Gwenn Magiikal Boss, Chris'tedz Poole.

    I didn't know the uk had ghetto names.

    What are the idiots rioting over? Justice?

    Man shoots at police, police shoots back, man dies. Fair enough.

    Edited:

    I've only seen them once or twice but from what i saw both times they were using a MP5
    I've seen them quite a few times, always with either an MP5 variant, or a G36/36C.

    I say they just get a fuckton of Riot Shield wielding Policemen [Don't know what SWAT is in the UK], and just tear-gas the bastards. If they resist, flashbangs and firehoses. They keep resisting, club em' and cuff em'.

    But it was shown that the bullet fired was Police issued. So Mark didn't shoot him. Thus the riot started.

    Ahh I see, thanks for informing me on that one. Although is that confirmed?

    Still though, what was the guy doing walking around with a gun?

    Teargas is not used in the UK, nor are stun grenades / flashbangs which IMO is part of the problem. I honestly don't see how you can stop a riot without riot control equipment.

    As I said earlier (in another thread maybe) that doesn't mean anything, especially as the report came from Sky news.
    "Police issue" could simply be the same calibre as police weapons.
