Mad Mobs and Englishmen? Myths and Realities of the 2011 Riots
Unlike the riots of , he asserted, this one was not based in any genuine grievance. The rioters were "mindless, mindless people" who had mounted an unjustifiable attack on the community. When David Cameron rose to address parliament on 11 August he endorsed Lammy's perspective.
The riots, he said, were "criminality pure and simple". Whether Lammy and Cameron realised it or not, they were echoing a long tradition of political responses to urban rioting.
In their aftermath, riots are always condemned as senseless and criminal acts that require a strong-armed response. With hindsight, it is nearly always acknowledged that they arose out of and reflected broader social conflicts.
But hindsight often comes too late to stop conflict from festering. If we misunderstand the nature of riots, and if we misrepresent them as mindless and as simple criminality, we ignore the best resource we have for understanding the perspectives, the grievances and the frustrations of those who riot.
Still worse, we introduce repressive measures that exacerbate their sense of grievance and frustration. For more than 30 years now, since the St Pauls riot of April , we have been studying crowds and riots.
Three broad conclusions can be drawn from our work and that of others. First, people are predisposed to riot when they have a sense of being treated illegitimately and of the uselessness of making polite complaints or conventional protests. Second, the events that initiate riots embody these beliefs but also bring people together, give them a sense of shared outrage and empower them to strike back.
Third, riots themselves are not senseless explosions in which anything and everything becomes possible. Rather the patterns of crowd behaviour reflect the world view of rioters: their sense of who is friend and who is foe. What is more, given the wealth of material already available through the internet, there is evidence that these lessons are also applicable to the riots of Drawing principally on live film and interviews taken during the riots, by creating a timeline and by linking the footage to Google Street View, we have been able to build a preliminary picture of the events and how they linked together.
Despite Lammy's attempts to distinguish August's riots from past riots, we find far more parallels than differences. The Brixton riot of arose in the context of heavy policing of a deprived black community. For the community this was exemplified by the death of Michael Bailey, which was seen as the result of police brutality. But rioting didn't start immediately. It only occurred the next day after the police had responded to Bailey's death by intensifying their operation.
The Tottenham riot of also occurred in a deprived black community subject to heavy policing. This was exemplified by the death of Cynthia Jarrett as the police raided her house looking for her son Floyd. Again, rioting didn't start immediately.
It only occurred after a peaceful march and demonstration led by relatives were seen to have been ignored. The Tottenham riot of occurred in the same deprived black community, once again subject to heavy use of police stop-and-search powers. Mark Duggan's death, widely seen by local people as an assassination, exemplified antagonisms with the police. But, as before, the rioting only happened after peaceful protests by friends and family at the local police station had been ignored.
No senior police officers were present to meet them. Instead, riot officers poured into the area and tried to force gathering crowds away from the station. In this process a young woman was struck. A cry of outrage went up and antagonism turned into open conflict.
The police were pelted with stones, but others such as fire officers were largely left alone. Police vehicles were torched, whereas other cars were largely left untouched.
Police properties, properties associated with the police such as a local solicitors and properties owned by outsiders were attacked. But properties owned by insiders were largely left alone or actively defended. In sum, Tottenham demonstrated all the features of a classic anti-police riot. It was rooted in longstanding grievances and the failure of peaceful protest. It arose out of an incident that exemplified police illegitimacy and that empowered people to respond.
Its patterns and forms expressed a selective antagonism towards the police and authority. Its passion reflected not only outrage but also the exultation of those who could finally assert their power over those who normally held power over them. This may not have been a political event in the conventional sense of using power to secure specific gains.
But it was profoundly political in the sense of arising out of and seeking to overturn everyday power relations in society. Of course, once the police are out of the way, all sorts of others things start to happen. Those with other resentments say, against "the rich" feel able to express them.
Those who want to acquire loot are more able to do so with impunity. In any given event the motives will be mixed. Moreover, as time went by in August, and as the riots spread, so the balance between motives shifted. Our point is not that the riots had nothing to do with criminality, or that the desire for loot is irrelevant. Our argument is that they were about far more than that. What is more, only after combined anti-police action has created the space do others enter in.
You can have anti-police riots without looting, but you can't have looting without anti-police riots. But the evidence we have brought together does not only challenge the notion that the riots unlike all others were "criminality pure and simple".
It also gives the lie to notions that the riots arose out of "soft" policing, and hence that we need harder police and harder policing. Tottenham arose out of a systematic failure to engage with the local community: a failure to engage with the family after Mark Duggan's death; a failure to respond to the community when it came in peaceful protest; a reversion to indiscriminate and insensitive tactics in forcing people away from the police station.
The priority now must be for re-engagement rather than repression. Many senior police officers recognise this. Even as the politicians were crying out for new repressive measures, Sir Hugh Orde, president of the Association of Chief Police Officers and failed candidate for Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, noted wryly that water cannon makes for good news headlines and for bad policing. So where do we go from here? First, if riots arise out of grievance rather than immorality, then we must address them by looking at problems in the relations between groups in society rather than searching for problems within the communities from which rioters are drawn.
Worse still, as long as we characterise rioters as feral creatures who lie outside civilised society, the problems will only get worse. Second, as we have been arguing, and as the historian William Reddy once observed, the targets of crowds "glitter in the eye of history" as a sign of how participants view their world.
We do not doubt the courage that will be required to take these steps. In a climate where condemnation is the only respectable stance on the riots, it is hard to point to the social processes out of which riots arise. It is still harder to listen to those who are so relentlessly demonised. But it is worth recalling the words of James Baldwin, writing in just before the wave of urban riots in the US:.

They have strong credentials for doing so: they are acknowledged experts in crowd psychology and proponents of an influential theoretical explanation, and have collaborated with police in several European countries on crowd-control issues.

Шифруя послание, Сьюзан просто заменила в нем каждую букву на предшествующую ей алфавите. Для расшифровки Беккеру нужно было всего лишь подставить вместо имеющихся букв те, что следовали непосредственно за ними: А превращалось в В, В - в С и так далее. Беккер быстро проделал это со всеми буквами. Он никогда не думал, что четыре слова могут сделать его таким счастливым: IM GLAD WE MET Что означало: Я рада, что мы встретились. Он быстро нацарапал на программке ответ и протянул Сьюзан: LDSNN Сьюзан, прочитав, просияла.

Стекла очков блеснули, и его пальцы снова задвигались в воздухе. Он, как обычно, записал имена жертв. Контакты на кончиках пальцев замкнулись, и на линзах очков, подобно бестелесным духам, замелькали буквы. ОБЪЕКТ: РОСИО ЕВА ГРАНАДА - ЛИКВИДИРОВАНА ОБЪЕКТ: ГАНС ХУБЕР - ЛИКВИДИРОВАН Тремя этажами ниже Дэвид Беккер заплатил по счету и со стаканом в руке направился через холл на открытую террасу гостиницы. - Туда и обратно, - пробормотал. Все складывалось совсем не так, как он рассчитывал.
А связаться с ними пробовала. - Пустой номер. Наверное, уплыли на уик-энд с друзьями на яхте. Беккер заметил, что на ней дорогие вещи. - И у тебя нет кредитной карточки. - Есть, но отец ее заблокировал.

И мы нашими совместными усилиями даже близко не подошли к математической функции меняющегося открытого текста. А вы хотите сказать, что какой-то панк с персональным компьютером придумал, как это сделать. Стратмор заговорил тише, явно желая ее успокоить: - Я бы не назвал этого парня панком.
Ты явно не в себе, - как ни в чем не бывало сказал Хейл.
