Sydney, Australia - A high speed police chase ending with the deaths of two teenagers, was the spark that created a firestorm of anti-police rioting in Sydney's southwest suburb. Police have been unable to end the violence which began four nights ago. A very small number of rioters have been arrested as crowds continue to block streets and hold off authorities with rocks and firebombs. The street where the teens died is marked by a memorial, banners and graffiti such as: "We know who the real criminals are, we just want justice", "Police will die", "Cops kill kids", and "We will kill you dogs".
