While the British media and spokespersons for the state preach ‘morality’, they seem to have forgotten that a man was killed on 4th August. Mark Duggan, a Black man, was shot dead in Tottenham, North London not by rioters but by the police. His family have still not been told why he was murdered. And when on 6th August they and their grieving friends organized a peaceful protest outside the police station, demanding to know the truth, they were treated not with compassion but to further violence – with a 16 year old girl allegedly being assaulted by the police. Meanwhile a false story was circulated in the media that Mark Duggan had fired at the police. Is this perhaps what the state calls ‘morality’?
