London Riots #3: Context
One journalist wrote that he was surprised how many people in Tottenham knew of and were critical of the IPCC, but there should be nothing surprising about this. When you look at the figures for deaths in police custody (at least 333 since 1998 and not a single conviction of any police officer for any of them), then the IPCC and the courts are seen by many, quite reasonably, to be protecting the police rather than the people.
Yeah. Ok. Go read the rest. What is surprising is that they hadn’t already rioted.
No war but class war, folks. The rich understand this, and they have been practicing it.
