Investors in London may be more worried about credit downgrades and Spanish and Italian debt this morning, but the people of London have seen a full weekend of lawlessness and rioting stemming from a police incident last week. Racial tensions are running high in the impoverished neighborhood of Tottenham where it all began, but the violence has spread to other areas known for political and ethnic tensions. The looting and violence left at least 35 police officers injured, and resulted in the arrests of more than 100 people. Jason Rosam, London correspondent for the BBC, spent the night covering the unrest in London's  neighborhoods.
