    "Protestors" set fire to police cars in London

    BBC News - Tottenham shooting: Police cars on fire after protest

    Two patrol cars have been set on fire after members of a community where a young man was shot dead by police took to the streets to demand "justice".
    Dozens of protesters have gathered outside the police station on the High Road in Tottenham, north London.
    It comes after a 29-year-old father-of-four, named locally as Mark Duggan, was shot dead by police on Thursday.
    The Metropolitan Police said missiles were thrown at the cars, both were set alight and riot officers deployed.
    I don't understand why people would set their own community on fire these "protestors" are opposing the police and government by breaking into Bookmakers, jewellery shops and local supermarkets.

    Glad the officers weren't hurt. Britain is becoming more like the US.

    Sucks. I can't tell you how upset I'd be if someone set my cruiser on fire...a lot of equipment in there was bought by me!

    Watch video from the Rodney King Riots in LA. The people were laughing, partying, and having a big time. It wasn't all about anger, it was an excuse to loot and do anything they wanted with relative impunity. I've said it 100 times and I'll say it again... people are crazy.

    BBC News - London riots: Police patrol streets after violence

    Emergency crews remain on the streets of Tottenham, in north London, after rioting saw police attacked and buildings and vehicles set alight.
    Overnight, eight officers were injured in the violence which erupted following a protest over the fatal shooting by police of Mark Duggan on Thursday.
    Police said there were still "pockets of criminality" on Sunday morning and residents reported more looting.

    Cidp24 your right, the violence is used by criminals and chancers to either have a go at the police or to loot and cause mindless damage.
