Parting Shot: Man Wears V for Vendetta Mask, Watches London Burn

In this photo by Emily Jackett, a man someone photographs (or videos) a car burning in East End of London during the recent riots while wearing a V for Vendetta mask, which has become a symbol of faceless protest for hacktivist groups like Anonymous. The photo is a reminder of how easily mindless violence and chaos can graft themselves on to symbols and movements that originate in justified anger and non-violent resistance, hurting not only innocent people in the process but also the symbols and causes they would co-opt.
