HOPE FOR THE UNDERDOG!
FOLLOWING the fatal shooting of Mark Duggan by Metropolitan Police officers earlier this year a peaceful march escalated into a full scale riot in Tottenham, North London.
THEREAFTER several London boroughs and districts of cities and towns across England suffered widespread rioting, looting and arson. The unrest soon spread to other areas of England, including Bristol and The North West. There have now been over 30,000 arrests – five people have died as a direct result of the related violent acts, with an estimated £200 million worth of property damage.
ALTHOUGH the streets are now back to normal, the scars are evident – and not just in bricks and mortar. The violence has not only left a dramatic imprint on our society as a whole, but has in turn ushered more long standing issues in the public gaze. We may be the world’s sixth largest economy, but our infrastructure is infected with drugs, street crime, and general discontent within the youth of today.
