London Riots: Amnesty International has nothing to say about police brutality!

The proximate cause of the violence was the fatal shooting by police of Mark Duggan, a 29-year-old from the notorious Broadwater Farm estate in North London. A heartless Conservative-led government could be blamed for provoking such an outburst of nihilistic rage. Meanwhile, on the other side of the political aisle, right-wing pundits demanded harsher policing while some even called (with more enthusiasm than was seemly) for the Army to take control of London's burning streets.

Within hours riots that began in Tottenham had spawned copycat violence and criminality in other London neighborhoods and then, later, in other cities around England. UK police have rounded up over 750 people over the riot, some of whom are arrested due to UK police’s trace of their online social media activities, organizing the “trouble”. 5 person had so far succumb to injuries from police unprovoked shooting; another 5 dead in policy custody.

David Cameroon in a press briefing warned that he would not  permit phony human rights to come in the way of police clamp down.

Amnesty International is completely silent on the Riots in UK, while they are currently challenging China’s account of the riot in Xinjiang or Libya or Malaysia or India or Iran or Gaza. And AI’s headquarters is located in LONDON!!
Apparently, they know more about things in all these countries, but they won’t look out of their own windows in London!! We ask why? Are they the stooge of Western governments that they practice such double standards?
We leave you with more images:
