I once knew one of the police in the SPG. I had the misfortune to go out drinking with him. Possibly the most racist, bigoted nasty piece of work I had every met ....
Pop down to the Paquis in Geneva one evening around 01h00. The biggest threat is the chief of the police station in the Paquis.He can be found in any or most of the establishments still open.

Re: Mark Duggan shot and killed by London police

SOURCE: BBC

The police watchdog has admitted it may have misled journalists into believing police shooting victim Mark Duggan fired at officers before he was killed.
Mr Duggan, 29, was shot by officers last Thursday in Tottenham.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission later released a statement to make it clear that Mr Duggan did not fire a gun at police.
Ballistic tests found that a bullet which lodged itself in one officer's radio was police issue.

His death sparked the initial riots in London which were followed by disorder in other English cities.



(Doesn't that statement in bold answer the poll question on the rioting thread ? Yes.)

Indeed so. Yes, it doesn't.

Re: Mark Duggan shot and killed by London police

I spoke to someone in London tonight.
They had taken a group of teenagers in care from S. London up North for a holiday. On the way they went through Kilburn. They said that they had never seen so many police in London, especially in Kilburn. The minibus driver was pretty frazzled, as the traffic was bad and two of the teenagers were involved in a heated argument. They slowed down thinking that they may get a random stop and search, but the police took one look at the teenagers and waved them right through-it kind of made me laugh!
