Sky News has received this statement from the family of Mark Duggan. "We feel completely gutted. Someone must be made accountable for this. We can't believe that they can do this. In this day and age this is completely unacceptable. We are ver very angry and we want answers now from the police." This statement follows the IPCC saying there was no evidence Mr Duggan had fired a gun at police before his death.

Sorry, but you're wrong. Things aren't basically the same. Sure, pretty much anyone can get a job, trouble is, it may be a fast food joint, it will be minimum wage. There is no way in hell that you can clothe, feed and house yourself on minimum wage.
And while there are a lot of fighters in this thread, I'd guess that they had a fairly decent home life.
Combine poverty, lack of hope and a destructive home environment and you have someone who ceases to function.

Someone has asked what is going on in Brighton as Churchill Square (shopping centre) has been cordoned off this afternoon, not sure if it's related, if it's just precautionary or whether they know something else, I think we have ATS'ers there (I'm close but too far to go find out)...
EDIT: Rumours of things spreading that way apparently. Just rumours, discard info as you see fitedit on 9-8-2011 by Aetheric because: (no reason given)
