London Tottenham Riots: Time-Lapse

Riots

Over the weekend, Andrew posted about the riots in London's Tottenham neighborhood that sprang from a peaceful vigil over the Metropolitan Police's fatal shooting of 29-year old father of four named Mark Duggan.

Now, there's an eerie time-lapse of the event, as the fires burned into early morning.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

In related news, Morrissey spoke up about the riots at one of his concerts, criticizing the British government:

"Does anyone think that David Cameron has been to Tottenham? I don't think so," he told the crowd.

  1. Why would David Cameron go to Tottenham? It's a dump. Has Barack Obama been to every impoverished inner-city neighborhood in America? Of course not.

  3. I wouldn't ordinarily recommend the Daily Mail but this article has some good photographs:

  4. Hmmh, I think you'll find that the rather innocent sounding "father of four" was apparently carrying a gun and became involved in an incident where shots were fired at the police.

    Better wait for a few facts before putting this one down to police mishandling - things have improved a great deal since the previous disturbances.

    A better question to ask might be why these civil lootings and disturbances always seem to occur under a Tory government ?!
