Reporting on outbreak in Bristol

The News Currents section "Europe," July 22, reports on three nights of "mob rampage" in Bristol, England. This is a rather exaggerated description of what actually took place. The incidents referred to were in fact confined to a single housing estate in Hartcliffe, South Bristol. While the incident was indeed serious and led to a number of arrests by local police, it was in no way comparable to the scale of unrest in Los Angeles. Alistair Budd, London
