Been watching the coverage of the rioters looting and burning across London this evening (and over the past couple of days). While the initial riot on thursday evening could be attributed to tension following the shooting of a young man by police (currently under investigation by Independent Police Complaints Commission), the rioting springing up across london over the following days up to this evening seem more concerned with causing damage as opposed to having any relation to the original incident. I was trying to get things clear in my own head and was sketching while watching the coverage. Modern Savages? Maybe. Certainly not civilised behaviour.
