Transcript of How the media affects public services

The media effects the public services in many ways.

They can have a positive effect and a negative effect on the public services.

This makes it really hard for public services as they have a job to fulfill and if people are exaggerating the truth up then it makes it harder for them.
Initial Incident
Mark Duggan was shot by a Scotland Yard marksman after armed officers stopped the taxi in which he was travelling in Tottenham, north London, in August 2011, sparking riots across England.
The Riots
These riots started on 6th of August in London.

The media observed before televising the events.

The media then reports on the rioting, when the media reports on it that could make it worse as it is then worldwide. More people could get involved as a result of this.
On the 8th - 12th of August the rioting spreads across the country.

The riots spreading causes secondary deviancy which is a self image of the rioters which then spreads via twitter and facebook. This is when moral panic begins, more people start to support rioters. Then more and more people get involved which is bad for the police.
Riot Spreads
Police and Courts response
There were 1,715 people sentenced.

The courts worked 24 hours.

There were an extra 20,000 police officers brought to London from around the UK as backup.

Jordan Blackshaw and Perry Sutcliffe-Keenan tried to organise riot by Facebook.

Both ended up getting 2 years in prison for incitement to riot.
The Aftermath
The police discuss using the water cannon and the rubber bullets. Shoot to kill in future.

The police used flickr to identify the suspects.

Twitter was used to organise the clean up, with the hashtag #riotcleanup.

The scene is set for future confrontation. The media have hyped things up to such an extent that it makes riots more likely to happen and when they do the clash will be worse due to the police taking a tougher line.

This basically means that the media cause more scenes and make it worldwide and people pick up on that and make it worse.
Media On the Uniformed Public Services
Police believed he planned to collect a gun from another man, Kevin Hutchinson-Foster, and then go on to Broadwater Farm, also in Tottenham.
An inquest jury this month found he was lawfully killed by a police marksman despite being unarmed when he was shot.

At the culmination of the four-month inquest, the jury found that although the 29-year-old had a gun in the minicab, he most likely threw it on to a nearby grass verge as soon as the car came to a stop.
