The news media refers to the events that occured in England as a “riot”. Riot implying that the events that occured were just a violent, public disorder with no justification. Darcus Howe refers to the events as an “insurrection”. Insurrection meaning an act of revolt. He pretty much said that it is not surprised that the “riots” occured because of the way the governemnt is treating it’s people. People are sick of being stopped and frisked and are sick of the abuse of power by the government and police. If the police are going to treat citizens that way, then a “riot” or “insurrection” (however you want to look at it) will occur regardless if it’s right or wrong. It is 100% expected for the citizens to speak up and let the government know that they are not okay with what is happening. Up to a certain point, people get fed up and act out in whatever manor they feel fit.
