And so no surprises here yesterday we had lots of people stating that this Duggan guy killed by the police had shot at the police, turns out none of it was true:
According to Sky the C019 firearms officer has said that he never claimed Duggan had shot at him.
The firearms officer is understood to have told investigators that he opened fire because he believed he was in danger from a lethal weapon. Two shots were fired, it is understood; one hit Duggan and one missed lodging in another officer's radio.
Forensic tests will establish finally whether Duggan fired his weapon at all during the attempted arrest on Thursday evening.
Rachel Cerfontyne, the IPCC commissioner in charge of the independent investigation into Duggan's fatal shooting said: "IPCC investigators are currently liaising with scientists at the Forensic Science Service regarding analysis on ballistics. We would anticipate being in a position to share verified results within the next 24 hours."
The Guardian reported on Monday that initial ballistics tests on a bullet found lodged in a firearms officer's police radio was a police issue bullet – indicating that Duggan had not opened fire at the officer.
Establishing precisely what happened when Trident officers, supported by members of the Met's specialist firearms unit stopped the minicab carrying Duggan on Thursday evening relies heavily on the ballistics results and the trajectory on the bullets fired.
Tests are also carried out to establish the range at which the shots were fired at Duggan. The Met police joined the IPCC to say that any suggestion he was killed in an execution style shooting by shots to the head was "inflammatory" and inaccurate.
The family of Mark Duggan is being kept up to date with developments, the IPCC said yesterday.
Am just wondering, all people here who think that people on the streets should be shot etc, did they feel the same way about the LA riots provoked by the beating of Rodney King?
Don't get me wrong, I don't support rioting, burning and stealing but I wonder if its possible to actually learn some lessons about why this happened in the first place?
Its very easy to say that these people should all be strung up, but rather than string them up after a riot it would be much better to prevent it happening in future, wouldn't it?
Somebody mentioned martial law - well if you want to support TPTB in bringing in martial law thats fine, but be sure that many ordinary law abiding people will resist you taking away more of our rights.

immigrants are not only black or one race in particular..
such a shame, this country could have had full employment,equality and peace. if it was not for open borders and a secret immigration policy that is. lets not kid ourselves IT IS NOT THE INDIGENOUS people of this land that are rioting, even though they have more valid reasons to, of which i alluded to earlier.. The lack of grace from these people is staggering.

I grew up in a drug infested area in a damp filled flat on the top floor of a tower block. I was lucky to eat sometimes because my wasted parents prefered their substances to looking after my bro and I. My bedroon was that damp there was mushrooms and fungus growing on the walls. I had charity toys and clothes.
But not once did i go out looting, robbing and causing trouble.
These moronic, thieving assholes need a good kicking and the fear of God put up them end of story!
Stop trying to excuse their scummy behaviour.

Shops in roman rd bow attacked and also in Bethnal green high street.
All those that are blaming the blacks, take a look at the hackney footage, looks like as many whites as blacks to me. Some of the poorest areas in London are black areas hence if they riot in Brixton, Lewisham or Dalston they will be mostly black. Whereas hackney is very mixed and we all live and play and it seems riot together

Its the indigenous people that have created the environment for this type of behaviour to breed, be it the rich elite who plunder other nations to satisfy their greed, to the apathetic lower classes who just let their government take everything their ancestors fought so hard for, away from them.
The Clash - London's Burning
All across the town, all across the night
Everybody's driving with full headlights
Black or white turn it on, face the new religion
Everybody's sitting 'round watching television!
London's burning with boredom now

2021: Interesting little tale from Upton Park just in. Hoodies there tried to attack a shop, and the shop owner and his staff came and beat them all up apparently.
