He was 29 years old.
He lived in North London. Just last week, on the 6th of August, he was fatally shot by the Metropolitan police.
Mark Duggan was an alleged cocaine dealer and member of the 'Star Gang'.
His biggest mistake was to be carrying a gun - something that is relatively rare in the UK.
His friends and family held a vigil in protest over his shooting. Over 200 people gathered.
Unfortunately, this led to riots and subsequently, looting in a minority community which was already seething over the wealth discrepancy in London and what they perceived as police bullying.
Mark Duggan was not the most upstanding citizen in the neighbourhood, but his death was not tolerated by the community.
In another country far away, two young men (who were not entirely upstanding citizens either) had their lives snatched a few years earlier.
One was Kugan Ananthan, and the other Gunasegaran Rajasundram. They were in their 20s to 30s - very much like Mark Duggan.
But unlike Mark Duggan, very few mourned their deaths. Another life gone was not to be despaired over - after all, there were already 1805 deaths in custody, so what was another?
In fact, some even went to the extent of saying, "We work for our living, we don't cause trouble, avoid crime and make the best of our lives in Malaysia. Not like Indians. Get involved in crime, have massive protests and threaten the government and the police."
The fact that police are senselessly killing Malaysian citizens does not worry the average Malaysian. Or does it?
