London residents woke this morning to the aftermath of the city's worst riots in years.

Protestors in the Tottenham neighborhood, enraged by the death of Mark Duggan, who was killed by police on Thursday, set cars and buildings aflame, looted storefronts and caused chaos in the streets, resulting in at least eight police officers being hospitalized.

As crews began sorting through the damage, Police Federation chair Paul McKeever was still searching for answers.

“Our thoughts are with the officers that have been injured," McKeever toll HuffPost. "It seems as though we’re in a position in the police service today where we’re damned if we do and damned if we don’t."
