There were at least two people in Glasgow, Scotland that asked me, "Have you heard what's happening in London?" It embarassed me that I could not engage in any intellectual discourse because I knew nothing about the incident.
This is when my interest for the story piqued. Although my study abroad trip in the U.K. has ended, the aftermath in London is still fresh in my mind. This post is based upon my research. Click the links highlighted in blue for more in-depth coverage.
The Duggan family arranged a peace demonstraion on Aug 6. The event quickly erupted into violent mayhem as young rioters vented their frustration. The riots began in the area of Broadwater Farm;however, news reports state that Duggan's family does not condone the riots. Read the full article Mark Duggan: profile of Tottenham police shooting victim. CNN offers a timeline of events on its website for more information.
