It didn’t take long before everyone’s favourite MP, Diane Abbott, angers thousands
Rashan Charles was tackled by Police officers last Saturday but died hours later.
He was trying to swallow an object and that an officer “sought to prevent the man from harming himself”.
Hundreds gathered in Dalston where riot police and protesters clashed.
The shadow home secretary told Mail Online: “The anger and upset at the death of Rashan Charles is understandable.
“But Rashan’s family have explicitly spoken out against hostile actions. We must respect their wishes and any protests must be peaceful.”
Police helicopters and dogs were dispatched to the scene as a battle for law and order raged in Hackney.
Diane Abbott is known for not liking the Police so it’s hardly surprising that she’s made such comments. It’s almost as if she doesn’t care that people are rioting.
We say she doesn’t like the police after trying to pay them £8,000 a year which was announced on LBC radio prior to the General Election in June.
The IPCC said in a statement on Friday: “We understand the concerns raised following Rashan’s death.
“We will independently examine the circumstances of this incident, we will follow the evidence, we will consider whether there is an indication there may have been misconduct or criminality, and we will seek to answer the questions that Rashan’s family and the community of Hackney understandably have.”
What do you think of these riots?
Do the protesters have a genuine reason to be angry or are they just wasting public money and making a fool of themselves?
