So by now you all know that on last Thursday, Mark Duggan, a 29 year old was shot and killed by the London Metropolitan police.
Since then, the people of the city and now the country have taken to teh streets and rioted and looted our communities. I’ve been trapped in my home for days, held prisoner against my will for fear of being caught up in the riots.
Like many of the people of London I’m terrified to leave my house.
I can be robbed or harmed the very second I leave my door, by intention or in the midst of a crossfire. The violence has now spread to South, West And East London and it’s absolutely horrendous that the looters are pummeling through their own surroundings.
The police are telling us to stay in our homes, but in reality there is nothing they can do, this is a job for our army if that is possible. There are not enough police and that is why the people are going crazy. But now it’s time to stop!
This is not the London I know and love and it’s embarrassing. It’s embarrassing, when people that actually live in London do this shit to their own place of living.
If the point the looters were trying to make was for justice, it has been lost. They are allowing the unfortunate death of one man to affect the lives of many. This affects every one in London and people all over the world that have family here. How can there be justice now?
Is this how you get justice? Or is it just simply an excuse to act out, be irresponsible and reckless? What good is this rioting doing for OUR country?
They’re doing way more harm than good.
