Brixton riots, London, April 1981.

UNITED KINGDOM - NOVEMBER 15: When the 'sus' (suspicion) law was introduced by the Metropolitan Police into the socially deprived area of Brixton in South London, police were able to stop and search anyone they suspected might commit a crime. Black youths suffered disproportionately from the application of this new law, and police racism, poverty and alienation combined to cause rioting. (Photo by SSPL/Getty Images)
