This weekend, London hosted the biggest riots the city has seen in 30 years. The rioting occured in the North London suburb of Tottenhem where, a few days ago, police shot and killed a suspected criminal in the streets in broad daylight. While this may seem like a fairly common occurence in the U.S., it doesn’t happen very often in London. The victim, Mark Duggan, was a familiar face in the Tottenham area and had four children. Rioters were upset because they believe the police were intending to kill the suspect from the get go, while police insist that Duggan was a career criminal, and that he fired on police first. Details regarding the shooting are still coming in, but rioters took to the streets of Tottenham in protest this weekend, destroying a number of cars and buildings in the process. Here are some striking photos of the Tottenham riots.Speak Your MindTell us what you're thinking... and oh, if you want a pic to show with your comment, go get a gravatar!
