London Tottenham Riots: Time-Lapse


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.


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.

  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 ?!
