You will recall the BBC’s coverage of the London Riots last year. Ever since, the BBC has been seeking to find “explanations” for the orgy of violence, arson and looting that defaced several of our major cities.  On Today this morning, we had ANOTHER item concerning the killing of Mark Duggan.  His Mother is still looking for “the truth” behind his death. I suppose she has ruled out him being a notorious gangster. Oddly enough, the BBC chose not to report this…

As the anniversary of the violence and looting approaches, the data reveals that 44% of riot suspects have been arrested on suspicion of committing further offences in the last 12 months. More than half of suspects who were locked up over the disorder have since been freed while thousands more who took part evaded justice.

The statistics, released under the Freedom of Information Act, showed police in Nottingham made 143 arrests following last August’s disorder, of whom 86 were charged, according to a newspaper. But in the last year, 72 of those suspects – half the total arrested – were held again for crimes including rape, arson, robbery, threats to kill and breaching bail or parole conditions, and some even arrested for multiple crimes.

In Bristol, the figures showed that 28 of the 53 held over the riots had faced further police action.

Almost as if the THUGS that took to our streets last summer needed no excuse and have continued to break the law. Not that you would ever know this by listening to the rancid pro criminal BBC.

    Would that be the same Mark Duggen who was been followed by Op Trident on the day the men who had stabbed dead his best friend had been released by the police. What you didn’t know that. Oh dear, the same Mark Duggen who was a member of the Star gang which is responsible for a number of killings in the city.

    In fact here is how the bBC aired an exclusive on the killing:
    Mark Duggan Tottenham shooting witness emerges
    The BBC has obtained footage of the aftermath of the police shooting of Mark Duggan, whose death in north London sparked the 2011 summer riots.

    The footage, by someone who says they witnessed the shooting, includes attempts to save Mr Duggan’s life following the incident last August.On the tape, the witness recounts that Mr Duggan jumped out of a car and police twice shouted: “Put it down.”….Two shots were fired from a police gun and Mr Duggan died from a single gunshot wound to the chest. A non-police issue firearm was found at the scene. .The pre-inquest review into the death heard earlier this year that that gun had no traces of Mr Duggan’s fingerprints, DNA or blood on it.
    The bBC the traitors in our Midst


    • Fred Bloggs says:

      No fingerprints, no DNA, ::: was anybody’s DNA, blood etc found on the gun. Aren’t these keep in a sock so that they can be discarded with no evidence? Just asking as these are the traits of a professional hit. Not that anybody from Tottenham or the bBC would know about these things.


      • Pounce_uk says:

        Yup, the thugs in the UK have been really attentive when it comes to watching CSI. But then it never airs on bBC so what would they know about policing. Other than only Black and female police officers catch criminals and white coppers can only be racist.

        The bBC, the traitors in our midst

        Oh and more info about the Gun from the Guardian, I’d insert the bBC version but it really is piss poor reporting. Which is why they headline with:
        Met Police officers to keep anonymity in ‘Duggan gun’ trial

        And the guardian version
        Man charged with passing gun to Mark Duggan before he was shot by police


        • wallygreeninker says:

          The article, from 15th June, at the last link contains the little snippet:
          “The prosecution is also in the process of seeking a court order to force the BBC to hand over video material filmed in the moments when Duggan was shot and killed. The footage, filmed by a witness, was broadcast in April. It is understood the BBC will fight the production order.” WTF?


          • Corran Horn says:

            Why would the bBC want to withhold material evidence in a criminal case? Is this not a case of attempting to pervert the course of justice?

            I mean releasing the video is not the same as naming the source, so I can only guess the reason for not releasing is that it may include information other than what was used to support their narrative.


            • Amounderness Lad says:

              They usually claim that their cameramen and reporters could be put in unnecessary danger if certain people think what they are recording might hand up in the hands of the police. If the B-BBC have footage which does not help promote their particular agenda, and it doesn’t take much to work out what their agenda is about either the riots or the excuse used to start them, then they will use any excuse they can to prevent it’s release.


        • Big Ben says:

          I must admit I didn’t expect the Guardian to report something so clearly at variance with the “police cover-up” agenda. Credit where it’s due but just how bad does that make the BBC look when even the Guardian is showing them up.


    • Amounderness Lad says:

      You forgot to mention that Duggan was also related by marriage to one of the most notorious crime families in the North West of England, one which has close crime links with almost all the city areas where the riots happened. Certainly in Manchester there was an agreement between the main gangs to set aside any Turf Wars they had so they could all operate freely for the duration of the riots without fear of reprisals.

      The riots were not quite as “spontanious” as they were made out to be especially by those with a vested interest in portraying them as anything other than criminal in origin.


      • +james says:

        True and you could see the gangster orchestrating the riots up in Manchester

    I’ve got this premonition we have another Steven Lawrence epic brewing.


    • The General says:

      Yes, why was Duggan’s mother not carrying the Olympic flag along with Mrs Lawrence.


      • Mice Height says:

        I’m sure Shami would have been campaigning tirelessly for St. Mark of Duggan and St. Trayvon of Skittles’ parents to join her.


        • Leftie-Loather says:

          Yes, they would’ve complimented utopian loon ladyboy Shami and honorary president of Unite Against(LOL!!) Fascism Mrs Lawrence beautifully.

          The UA(LOL!)F honorary prez done well seen as a few days before helping carry the Olympic flag she’d also got to carry the Olympic flame through Deptford.


          • Mice Height says:

            Yeah, I hear she attended the John Terry trial. Strange that she was absent at Liverpool Crown Court for the Peadostani case hey!
            I guess drugging and raping teenagers isn’t quite on a par with calling a black footballer, black!


            • Leftie-Loather says:

              Well even after nineteen years, obviously still nothing’s on a par with her sons murder, still treated by hoards of crackpot lefties like it was the bloody murder of the second coming of christ or something! Only one murder was important, stuff all other victims of murder since, especially of course just murders – racial or not – of any honkies.
              It’s ludicrous and i’d VERY confidently bet the vast majority of the British public are sick of it.


    • Ian Hills says:

      “Epic” is an apt word for the retrial. Abolish the double jeopardy rule, prejudice the jury with an unrelated tape recording, and admit a few fibres on police-contaminated clothing as new evidence.

      Lawrence’s “friend”, drug dealer Duwayne, who kept changing his story (only to receive £100,000 compo for racism) was the most likely suspect. Talk about innocent until proven white.


      • Span Ows says:

        …and had history of arrest for knife possession….amongst other things.


        • London Calling says:

          And is now a councillor in the London Borough of Lewisham, one of the most racist councils in London. (btw, that’s black racist, not white racist)


  4. George R says:

    “Almost half of those held in riots have been re-arrested for crimes including rape, threats to kill and robbery.”

  5. Nibor says:

    If Mark Duggan wanted to be a gangster then he died like a gangster , his own wish fulfilled .


  6. Sir Arthur Strebe-Grebling says:

    Meanwhile, lots in the ‘community’ are enjoying their free plasma-screen TV and designer trainers, although at a year old they’re probably due for replacement now, so watch out for another excuse for them to protest against the Police.


  7. hippiepooter says:

    I heard an interview with Mark Duggan’s mother, I’m presuming it was the same one recycled.

    It was jaw-droppingly outrageous. It wasn’t an interview. It was the BBC doing PR for a criminal family.

    Leveson, where are you?


  8. uncle bup says:

    ,,, not to forget the gangsta salutes at the cortege; or just friendly waving as the BBC had it.

    There are times when the police get it wrong – the young barrister Mark Saunders never needed to be shot dead – but no tears here at some gangsta getting it.


  9. johnnythefish says:

    Is this the time for The Guardian/LSE to revise their report?


  10. Jeff says:

    A few months ago I listened to Any Questions and heard Margaret Hodge give her take on last years riots. Apparently the young people were “demonstating” their unhappiness at bankers bonuses and the increase in tuition fees. Things just got a little out of hand…you know how high spirited youngsters can be.
    The really sad thing is the Tory on the panel sat tight lipped as we were forced to listen to this drivel.
    Margaret Hodge is the Labour MP for Barking.
    Some might say that’s rather appropriate….


    • David Preiser (USA) says:

      You know, back when all those rioters were going through the courts system, and the Beeboids were rending their garments over all those supposedly draconian sentences, I don’t recall them prominently reporting that all those rioters gave their reasons for doing it as what Hodge and the usual BBC suspects described.

      If so many of them said in court (and presumably they’d have to explain themselves at some point in the proceedings, or the defense lawyer would do it for them) that their act of vandalism/theft/violence was done in protest of bankers’ bonuses, you’d think the BBC would have made a big deal out of it, had loads of them on to tell you about it.


    • johnnythefish says:

      Hodge is simply exploiting the situation to promote her own (Labour’s) political agenda. Basically she’s saying the justification for rioting is still there, so we can expect more.

      Labour don’t give a flying f*** for this country, only getting back into power by any means, and once they’re there, staying there, using every filthy tactic in the book.


    • Ian Hills says:

      The idea of Margaret Hodge sympathising with the young is grotesque, given that she closed down an inquiry into Islington Council paedophilia when she was leader.

      As an MP she went on to discredit one of the (black) victims, and was forced to publicly apologise.


  11. John Anderson says:

    This morning Radio 4 were running the scrote Duggan story as third main item of the news.

    Why, exactly ? How is it major news today – except in the BBC’s warped agenda ? Is it a major item anywhere else in the UK press ?


    • Dysgwr_Cymraeg says:

      it’s August, and someone at the INBBC would like it to kick-off everywhere dontcha know?
      They just provide the fuel and the spark .


  12. Louis Robinson says:

    Thoughts on “The hackney heroine” from the HuffPo piece posted by “jpt” above:

    I am a TV producer. Bring me a criminal and I’ll make him a victim. I’ll blame “society”, “the education system”, “poor housing” and finally the (Tory)”government”. I’ll film him to make him look good, I’ll edit his words, I’ll find moving music and heart-rending images. A deep voiced narrator (with a northern accent) will read my script blaming “society”, “the police”, “politicians” – and oh yeah – I almost forgot “the system”. Later I’ll turn him from “victim” into “celebrity”. He’ll show up again and again in the media, he’ll be the voice of the downtrodden, he’ll write a book, he’ll appear on Question Time, he’ll make a little money for his habit – I know but its only hash.
    Listen – when I go home to my nice polite house in Islington please don’t tell him where I live. I don’t want him around my kids. After all I have to protect my family. I care – I really do – but can I do? he’s got the social services? The local authorities. Anyone? It’s not my fault. I’ve done as much as i can…wait!
    I’ve got a great idea: what about a short film about how the system has let him down. After all I am a TV producer. Bring me a victim and I’ll make a film about him – might even be award-winning. I’ll blame “society”, “the education system”, “poor housing” and finally the (Tory)”government”…
    Isn’t it sickening?


  13. alan says:

    The BBC have been quick to tell us, or warn us, that the riots are likely to happen again this summer…..why? More BBC incitement…giving the rioters an excuse?

    Listened to the interview this morning…had to double check whether the BBC admitted a gun had been found at the scene…this is what the BBC said today….’Suggestions have been made that he had a gun…but this is unproven.’

    Really? I thought it was pretty well known that a gun was found at the scene….Channel 4 News seems to think so today:

    ‘A pistol inside a sock was found at the scene. Mark Duggan’s DNA was not on it but his fingerprint was on a box which contained the gun. It had not been fired.’

    The interview seemed purely a device to stir up trouble and anti-police anger….leading to more ‘social unrest’.

    The BBC seem quite happy that Mrs Duggan uses the words ‘execute’ and ‘assassination’ to describe the death of her son….no challenge from the BBC on her use of such emotive language.

    If this was the mother of an EDL member killed by a police baton on a demonstration the BBC would be straight in there saying ‘It’s tragic but didn’t he bring this on himself?’…that’s if she got an interview.


    • Dysgwr_Cymraeg says:

      ” that’s if she got an interview. ” …..she wouldn’t.


      • Demon says:

        If she did the interviewer would be hostile to her, interrupt any point she made. Later it would edited in such a way to make her out to be racist, unpleasant, intolerant and stupid.


  14. London Calling says:

    Did Mark Duggan pay his taxes? BBC, lapdog to UK Uncut, seem to think it is important we are told this about other people in the public eye. What were Duggan’s earnings from criminal enterprise, and how much tax did he pay last year? What did his hypocritical victim-card playing mother know about his illegal activities (but not do her civic duty to report)?


    • Mice Height says:

      I don’t think Crack Cocaine is taxed as yet is it? Much to the Lib Dems disgust!


  15. Leftie-Loather says:

    Mark Duggan was far from an angel and chose to live a life on dodgy ground, which his mother would’ve been well aware of all the risks of her son doing. It seems the police, who’re only human, really cocked up big time though and they should’ve just kept on keeping a close eye on him. But still absolutely no excuses for the riots spreading everywhere though and the ignoramus BiasedBrainwashingCorporation still wasting its time being in weirdly warped pursuit of excuses, which it would find still simply don’t wash with easily the vast majority of the British public.
    Nothing complex about anything for the thoroughly cowardly Balen Report hiding bBC to waste our money delving in to.
    Rats are rats and they just excitedly pounced at opportunities they suddenly saw, simple as that. Those reoffending rates since the riots speak for themselves!
    I say stuff our prisons full to the rafters with the reoffending lawless bastards!


  16. The Prangwizard of England says:

    I sympathise, but have any of us here written to the BBC formally to complain abut their bias and selectivity? On this story or any other of the many that are aired on these pages. Do we make the most of this?


    • Mat says:

      Many have tried and still do but as the BBC control all the complaints procedures with no outside independent scrutiny [something they say every one else should have by the way lol ] we are doing so purely for our own records as the BBC scum don’t give a ?????????


    • Mice Height says:

      I, like most users of this blog, could probably fill pages with former complaints to the BBC and their refusal to address any of them, but to twist turn and side step the issue.
      I decided to stop paying for my licence after they gave a lying communist thug free reign to spout his poison unchallenged and without even questioning the validity of his – almost certainly fabricated – ‘sources’.


    • Framer says:

      I have written and complained about ‘Thought for Today’ and John Bell of the Iona Community on God’s support for Scottish nationalism. (Today 18 Jan. 2012)

      And my complaint was upheld by the Editorial Complaints Unit after a lot of time and effort on my part going through all the stages!
      The feeblest of responses imaginable for the Today programme production team was then posted in the form of an incoherent and tendentiously phrased reminder –– no punishment and no rebuke for John Bell who is still hard at it.


      And worst of all, the offending ‘Thought’ remains on the BBC website – unconnected to the ruling, which nobody will ever see.


  17. lillian says:

    The BBC have a complaints system which is monitored by – the BBC. There is no outside monitoring system for the monopoly BBC. Sky also shares the BBC news agenda.

    The only way the BBC is going to be held to account is if a group of people refused to pay their license fees and use BBC bias as a reason.
