All across Greater London, riots have erupted causing looting, fires, and vandalism.
Protests over the death of Mark Duggan, a 29-year-old father of four, last Thursday started out peacefully, but over the past couple of nights, protests turned ugly with 160 people jailed, leaving the city scarred.
Duggan was shot and killed by police with some protesters disputing the validity of the shooting, saying he was "assassinated" execution-style. Very few details surrounding his death have been released.
London mayor Boris Johnson spoke about the riots, saying:

"Tried" being the operative word. Boy, do we wish it had gone through!
Several months before the tragic passing of Gary Coleman, the actor consulted his lawyer to file a restraining order against his ex-wife, Shannon Price.
According to the lawyer, Randy Kester, while recovering from a seizure a few months ago, Gary was alerted that Shannon was "looting" his house while he was in the hospital. Though it is still unclear what Shannon actually took, Gary felt strong enough about her taking it that he demanded his lawyer to file the order. Kester explains:
"He was in poor health and he had been told while he was in the hospital that she was sort of looting the house and he wanted it stopped. He had reached a point where he didn't want to have any contact with her and he wanted her to stop taking his things."
Problem was, there was just too much red tape to get through. Kester attempted to give his client privacy, so he changed the names and went through tons of back channels. By the time the order even got halfway finished, poor Gary had forgiven Shannon and she was never served.
So sad! Wonder if the order could still be put through to keep Shannon from making off with the rest of his stuff???
