There's a Riot Goin' On

Shops looted... homes destroyed... people injured...
I'm listening to BBC RADIO LONDON and continuing coverage of last night's TOTTENHAM RIOTS.
There is apparently trouble tonight in both ENFIELD and BRIXTON -- the latter being an area I visited when in LONDON.
As always, there are deep-seated, complicated problems underlying the disturbances, which followed a protest about a fatal police shooting.
I'm frankly surprised similar episodes have not yet happened on this side of the Atlantic.
