Can’t resist an opportunity for a pun and commentary – Watts Going On?

LONDON (AP) — New unrest erupted on north London’s streets late Sunday, a day after rioting and looting in a deprived area amid community anger over a fatal police shooting. Police deployed extra officers on London’s streets to prevent a repeat of Saturday’s violence in north London’s Tottenham area, which appeared to be quiet Sunday night. But disturbances broke out in Enfield, about 5 miles (8 kilometers) north of Tottenham. TV footage showed riot and mounted police
patrolling the streets, and there were also images of smashed shop windows, and police with dogs detaining at least one man.

    British Prime Minister David Cameron’s office says he has cut short his summer vacation to lead the response to the escalating London riots — with violence and looting occurring for a third day across the capital.

    A step up from the esteemed politicians in our midst, who are hunkered down for their summer vacation, while Wall Street was “looted” today.
