the guardian partly redeems itself for the awfulness of its lead reporting
Well every report I can find says a copper was taken to hospital after getting shot. Seems unlikely the dead guy would have been able to respond if he'd been hit first with two shots from an H&K.that said, yeah, i salute the protest. just not what followed.
its still not clear if the guy shot the police or not is it?
What, by waging war on their own community? Yeah, great, that'll show 'em.the sense i get from highness, gumdrops and tea is you should all just behave yourself like responsible adults when i think that its probably fair to say there is a war being waged against the people of the world. in some sense there is a war on and doing as your told is probably not the best way to respond to a situation like that.
Yeah, twitter's by far the best way to follow something like this. But\ inevitably there was so much rumour to separate from the fact. Also it's often just the same tweet retweeted over and over.Twitter is kindof amazing for this, I've not understood it before.
Brixton, Enfield, Dalston, Walthamstow, Palmers Grn, Ponders End, Earlsfield and Westfield so far rumours and confirmed stuff.
There was a media blackout while it was going on - NOTHING on BBC, Sky, Guardian shut down from 12.58 - the only way you could find out information was through twitter. LBC and 5live both had phone ins going on with people phoning in what was happening but both were so reactionary it was funny.Yeah, twitter's by far the best way to follow something like this.
