There ARE police shootings. They happen in America OFTEN.
But how many occur on the very steps of a Police Station?
Two days ago, A 29 year old Father by the name of Mark Duggan was shot and killed outside Tottenham Hale Police Station in Tottenham, North London, as the result of a Gun Sweep Operation gone WRONG.
Tottenham has a notorious reputation as being one of the most deprived areas in the country, with 50% of it's population living in conditions of poverty.
CHAOS reigns on Tottenham High Road.
Shops are being smashed and looted, in scenes eerily reminiscent of the Los Angeles Riots of 1992-93.
A double-decker bus, 2 police vehicles and a motorcycle have been set ablaze.
And, just like in America, the people of Tottenham are destroying their own community in response to a police shooting.
It is like a WAR ZONE, according to current TWEETS from the area.
Wiser heads have locked themselves indoors for the night, as a mob of 400 roams the streets, hurling Petrol Bombs and clashing with Riot Police on horseback....
They are calling for "JUSTICE", and, just like in America, going about it in the WRONG way.
