A message from Mark Duggan's family to Mike Brown's
61 people were arrested in Ferguson after unrest erupted on the streets following a Grand Jury decision not to indict Darren Wilson, a white officer who shot an unarmed black teenager Michael Brown to death.
But it's not just an American problem. Violent riots followed a killing of a black man in the UK's Tottemham in 2011. 29-year old Mark Duggan was shot dead by a police officer in the chest. Police say he was suspected of planning an attack as he was in possession of a handgun. But the time he was shot Duggan was unarmed. And his family calls it an execution.
We spoke to Duggan's aunt Claire and she sent her deepest condolences to the family on Michael Brown and Ferguson.
