No, not a riot. Its just groups of thugs using the fact that some drug dealer got killed to loot things from nearby shops, hope they all get arrested. Nothing big like you say but just some pieces of crap trying to act hard and/or loot and pillage from the nearby markets.
As someone in London, I certainly weight your perspective more heavily than those of us colonists
Do you feel that these are not riots because of their motivations? Why did this "drug dealer" getting killed set off such a reaction? I assume drug dealers have been killed there before?
I am very interested in your perspective since you are there - and we rely on second, third, or fourth hand reporting often to try to figure things out.
In any case, I hope things improve there- and thank you for the deserved poke!
