Protesters continue to terrorize the London neighborhood of Tottenham. Enraged by the death of Mark Duggan, a resident killed by Police officers last Thursday, rioters took to the streets, setting fire to cars, buildings, stores and even a double-decker bus.


According to The Huffington Post:

“Duggan was reportedly a target of an ongoing police investigation into gun crime in London’s black communities, and was shot after allegedly firing on a Specialist Firearms Command officer with an illegal handgun.

A protest march organized by family and friends of Duggan turned violent after a rumor that police officers assaulted a teenage girl caused longstanding tensions to boil over. Many shops were looted and vehicles were set on fire, including two police cars and a double-decker bus. Several buildings sustained heavy damage after being petrol bombed by the rioters.”
