    The gritty north London neighborhood of Tottenham exploded in anger Saturday night after a young man was shot to death by police.
    Two patrol cars, a building and a double-decker bus were torched as rioters clashed with officers in front of the Tottenham Police Station, where people had gathered to demand "justice" for the death of a 29-year-old killed in an apparent gunfight.
    "It's really bad," said local resident David Akinsanya, 46. "There are two police cars on fire. I'm feeling unsafe."
    Sirens could be heard across the city as authorities rushed reinforcements to the scene. In Tottenham shop windows were smashed as residents looted the stores, pushing shopping carts full of stolen goods down the street.
    Officers in riot gear and on horseback pushed up against the demonstrators. Akinsanya put the number of demonstrators at between 400 and 500. Police said there were about 300 people gathered.
    Miles from the tourist hotspots of central London, Tottenham is one of the most deprived areas in all of England, with nearly half of all children living in poverty, according to campaigners.
    In 1985, Tottenham was the scene of a deadly riot after a local woman suffered heart failure when her home was raided by the police. The Tottenham riots were among the most violent in the country's history, with one officer stabbed to death as he tried to protect firefighters and nearly 60 others were hospitalized.

    Very few of the articles actually mention the Reuters comment:

    Aug.7 - Riots erupt in north London during protests over the shooting of a man by police during an exchange of gunfire.
    Shoot at trained policemen and you get what you deserve.

    I'm guessing it's the blacks rioting again. They want control of the streets.

    I hope the police come down hard.

    If there is one saving grace, it's that this part of London is such a shithole, burning it down would only improve it.

    Especially Broadwater Farm.

    Funny I did mention about the amount of our ethnic majority I see standing around here allday . What I dont understand is he got shot as he came out of Tottenham Hale underground station , now the pavemnet there is narrow and a bridge to the right of it and no buildings to the immediate left , so the police in wait must have been well out in the open waitng for him to get off the train , more to this than meets the eye I think
    I'm proud of my 38" waist , also proud I have never done drugs

    That is the definition of poverty, isn't it? Strikes me too, every time I read it.

    In politically correct western countries, yes. People who receive tax free handouts paid for by tax payers are 'poor'.

    One of their number has been shot dead by the police so the locals are taking the law into their own hands.
    Never been a big fan of British Old Bill and when stuff like this happens I get the feeling that they brought it upon themselves.

    Cheers

    Thats probably the most complimentary remark anyones ever made about Hounslow .....ever ! If you have to stay there again the mayor will probably pick you up in his Fiesta and give you the keys to the town ( before doing a runner ).

    From what i understand the Police try to arrest him shots were fired from both sides,he got killed tough.
    Its mad the police try and do their job apprehend criminals,the locals residence like a life of crime,get a face on because the might be arrested for their criminal tendencies.
    And start a riot,then loot loads of shops.
    I am not a lover of the U.K police but for once i am on their side.
    To much violent crime in some parts of the country time the police picked on the real criminals.Instead of relying on cameras to do their work for them,get on the streets and sort the crime rate out.

    Well let's wait and see what happened first, eh? Are you saying if he opened fire they weren't allowed to shoot back?

    In all honesty I don't know the full story, I've heard a couple of unconfirmed stories that the suspect shot was waving a shot gun about , however I've had quite a few negative experiences with the police in the UK and North London (which before you ask I can't elaborate on in public), suffice to say I shed no tears when the police recieve a bit of their own medicine, and if that makes me a c**t in some people's eyes I'm happy to be called a c**t.

    Cheers

    I've had negative run ins with the UK police too but don't see how anyone can justify these jigaboo's running amok after one of their "Bredrens" died after he started popping off shots at the police.

    What were they supposed to do, just stand there and get shot at? These animals are involved in 99% of gun and knife crime and then come out with the old "Why iz u pickin on us, blud? Iz it coz I iz black" bullshit. It's about time these cunts get severely dealt with and made to realize they're not in the fucking Congo anymore.

    Why is it that wherever in the world black people concentrate together they start robbing and killing each other?

    there was apparently a gunfight, during an attempt to arrest the dead man.
    he was in a minicab.
    a policeman was shot at, his radio, worn on the left shoulder, was hit by a bullet.

    the family of the dead cnut organised the protest. ('e was a lavverly boy, nevah 'urt a fly, gawd bless 'im)

    demanding justice.
