Black Lives Matter riots in England

The virus of racial hate-mongering has spread to London, as rioters carrying “black lives matter” placards created chaos following the death of a suspect held in custody by the police. The BBC reports:

Fireworks and bottles were hurled at riot police as a protest following the death of a black man turned violent.

Rashan Charles, 20, died after being apprehended by police in Dalston, east London, on 22 July.

Angry clashes broke out on Friday evening after protesters blocked part of Kingsland Road and set mattresses alight.
