Riots break out in north london  Reply with quote  


Quote:


Riots exploded in the town of Tottenham (North London) Saturday night after a young man was shot by police. The rioters torched two police vehicles among other things. This isnít the first time the town of Tottenham has been suspect of riots breaking out due to police misconduct. In the 1980′s riots broke out in Tottenham due to a woman suffering from a heart attack while police raided her home.

I know how much we hate police misconduct. There isn't much information yet though.

If only we did this more frequently in the States. But then the fucking National Guard gets called in and we have a police-state related Kent State. Lot of statehood going on, and not a bit of it is good.

27th july


then other day that fella got shot, i dont know anything about that guy


this is right around the corner from me, my facebook been blowing up

apparently some of it has spread to the wood green section of green lanes (where that video is filmed) which is walking distance from here - all the police are in tottenham right now so people have started smashing in shops n nicking shit. HMV's been done, people running down the road with xbox's n shit

I was tempted to go out and have a look, but naa



edit, fucking hell, watching it on the news and seeing places i know on fire. this is fucking surreal

It does happen though. But because we are such a big country, a lot gets glossed over, or not reported at all. I mean there were some riots in Oakland awhile back, no? I remember only reading about that on twitter. Never got much TV play or news coverage in general that I remember.

na thats just a festival, nothings going on in brixton at all.

its all kicking off in enfield right now big time, bbc is playing it down like fuck.. sky news is actually doing a pretty good job of covering it.

they're not protesting shit, yesterday in tottenham yes, but not tonight - fuck them all - they're smashing in peoples windows on their houses, random cars. my bro spoke to some n they basically said they wanted to smash stuff in and steal shit and that was it

fuck them, if they come back towards wood green / tottenham they'll have to go via my area, i gona stay up with a baseball bat

Speaking of this, is it true that in England if someone breaks into your house and you have a gun you can't shoot them with it?

you can't shoot anyone for any reason.. unless you're a member of the metropolitan police force, obviously.

not to mention that there's not a lot of homeowners with guns.

i know right(?) it's PC gone mad!

This can't be true. Even if they're, like, trying to rape you?
