RIOT FROM WRONG – Award Winning Documentary

On August 2011 – Mark Duggan was stopped by armed police and shot dead on the spot.

This shooting, reported in the mainstream UK media – sparked riots in Tottenham, London, and then within a few days – Riots, Looting and pitch battles with the police took place all over the UK.

Today on Wednesday 7th January 2014 at an inquest into the death of Mark Duggan, the Jury ruled that he was Lawfully killed by the police (So the police did the right thing, in the circumstances) – but the Jury also said that after hearing all the evidence, that Mark Duggan was not carrying a gun – NOT CARRYING A GUN.

He was therefore an unarmed suspect (he was about to be arrested, innocent until proven guilty etc), who was shot twice by a police marksmen and died instantly, this bullet to the heart, then sparked the worse riots the UK has seen in a generation.

The Following documentary was made by Fully Focused Productions in response to the riots, and Future Artists are the UK Distributers – I think today, in light of recent events, that this film is even more powerful,

One thing I learned from Riot From Wrong is that 19 young people can get closer to the truth than 90% of working journalists’. Everyone in the UK who has ever expressed an opinion on the riots (namely everyone) needs to see this as soon as possible.

Read what influential people have to say about the film…

 

‘This film breaks the mould of conventional perceptions peddled by the mainstream media. It opens doors that have remained firmly closed on a generation which feels disenfranchised and disempowered. Made by young people at street level who have access and credibility, not by pontificating pundits. It is set to become an historic and definitive document. A resource which should be viewed by all those who care about the restoration of an inclusive and effective democracy.’

Michael Mansfield QC


‘The best documentary on the August Riots bar none’.

RIOT FROM WRONG – A FILM BY  FULLY FOCUSED PRODUCTIONS

Extract from Guardian online Wednesday 8th 2014 – Written by Vikram Dodd

Mark Duggan‘s family reacted with fury as an inquest jury ruled on Wednesday that he had been lawfully killed but had not had a gun in his hand when confronted by officers.

By a majority of eight to two, the jury ruled that the 2011 shooting that sparked the worst riots in modern English history was lawful.

The jury said they were sure, by the same eight-to-two majority, that Duggan did not have a weapon in his hands when police surrounded him. By a majority, the jury concluded he “threw” the gun from a cab he was travelling in when armed officers forced it to stop.

The family described the jury’s conclusion as “perverse” and said they would consider a judicial review.

Duggan’s mother, Pam, collapsed in court on hearing the finding and his brother Marlon shouted at the seven men and three women on the jury as they left the courtroom.

Later, outside the court, Duggan’s brother Shaun Hall, with tears visible on his face, said: “It’s unbelievable. That’s just about what I can say for now.”

Duggan’s aunt Carole Duggan said he had been “executed”, while the family’s lawyer Marcia Willis Stewart said they were in a state of shock and could not believe the outcome.

She said: “On 4 August 2011 an unarmed man was shot down in Tottenham. Today we have had what we can only call a perverse judgment.

“The jury found that he had no gun in his hand and yet he was gunned down. For us that’s an unlawful killing.”
