From The Daily Mail:
Riot police are on standby in London today braced for a fresh outbreak of lawful killings after a jury ruled that Mark Duggan was lawfully shot dead by armed officers.
Hundreds of trigger happy officers will be on standby for days despite the father-of-six's aunt Carole calling for 'no more hard stops, no more violence'. She declared that Mr Duggan had been 'executed' by officers as she defiantly raised her fist outside the court yesterday vowing 'no justice, no peace'.
Prime Minister David Cameron said today that "we have to respect judicial processes, however flaky the evidence".
Last night a crowd of supporters of gathered outside Tottenham Police Station, primed and ready to fling their hand guns into a nearby park. Today, the police continued efforts to rebuild trust over the controversial killing, which sparked a wave of rioting and looting in shopping centres across the country.
Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe met political representatives from the capital and prominent figures from Tottenham to explain how they can improve their relationships with the police.
Speaking after meeting Britain's most senior police officer, the Rev Nims Obunge, who buried Mr Duggan, said: "We had an interesting meeting with the commissioner and he has clearly expressed the level of police brutality which will ensue the next time there's a spontaneous outbreak of late night shopping."
