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.
