He was pronounced dead upon arrival at the Great Western Hospital.
Roger had gone with friends to buy drugs and one of them, foolishly, stole the dealer's bike.
This incensed 19-year-old Shelton Sibanda, so he and his gang, Zacharious Clayton, Kendel Joseph, Eurico Tavares and Christopher Simmonds went looking for revenge. When they found the other group they gave chase, caught Roger and stabbed him in the back five times.
Subsequently, Sibanda pleaded guilty to his murder. Clayton, Joseph, Tavares and Simmonds all deny the charge.
Simmonds, however, has pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice by persuading his former girlfriend to give a false account of his whereabouts on the night of Roger’s death.
On 26 January 2012, burglars broke into the south-east London home of 64-year-old Edward Syrad.
Edward and wife, Anne, were, subsequently, threatened, assaulted and then bound and gagged. His home was, subsequently ransacked by the robbers.
During the course of the burglary, Edward had tried to protect his wife and was severely pistol-whipped for his pains. After she managed to free herself, she found him dead in another room. He had had a heart attack. A post-mortem examination gave the cause of death as numerous severe blunt trauma injuries and heart failure.
Anne was taken to hospital but was later discharged. Edward’s son, Paul said:
"We know two raiders came through the back door. They tied up my stepmum and my dad died of a heart attack as he tried to fight them off. It was over money."Originally charged with murder, Gezim Delijah’s Old Bailey trial for manslaughter, robbery and possessing an imitation firearm with intent will begin in May 2013.
In October 2012, Carl Powell was sentenced to 20 years in prison for the sexually motivated murder of 28-year-old care worker and mother-of-two Caroline Coyne on 22 July 2011.
Mr Justice Flaux told Powell:
"You subjected Caroline to a savage attack, bludgeoning her over the head, causing injuries from which she would die alone and defenceless."On 18 October 2012, The BBC reported thus:
“A man described as sexually obsessive and predatory has been given a life sentence for murdering a young woman and sexually assaulting another…
CCTV played at Nottingham Crown Court showed Ms Coyne running away from Powell and trying to flag down a bus… She, by then, had become so desperate that she was stepping into the path of not a car but a bus at close quarters…
She ran into Thorneywood Mount, where her body was found on a pathway at about 08:45 BST. Her bra and pants had been moved, she had reddening consistent with a sexual assault, and a pathologist found she had died from head injuries. She had also been strangled...
She had flagged down a police car half an hour before Powell came across her, but the two special constables said they could not give her a lift… One officer said he told Ms Coyne: ‘We're not a taxi’…
The Independent Police Complaints Commission was asked to look into the actions of the two Nottinghamshire Police officers. An internal review was conducted at the IPCC's request, and this exonerated the officers of any wrongdoing.
Powell attacked his second victim a month later, as she walked home at about 04:00 BST on 24 August after a night out.
He grabbed the 21-year-old around the neck and dragged her into the grounds of a college in Carlton Road. However, she said she talked her way out of being more seriously assaulted…
‘I don't know what would have happened if he had held my neck down for a lot longer because there was a good period of time when I couldn't breathe,’ added the woman.”
On 13 May 2012, The Daily Mail reported thus:
"A foster mother nearly stabbed to death by a foreign teenager placed in her care has launched a scathing attack on social services and accused them of gambling with her safety.It emerged at his trial that he later told authorities his name was David Maria-Garcia, insisting he was in fact from Morocco. As an unaccompanied minor, Milton Keynes social services department was obliged to find him accommodation.
Christine Mackay, who had been told the youth was well-behaved, lost four pints of blood after being savagely attacked with a kitchen knife as she slept.
The teenager, housed with her just three days after arriving in the UK illegally and with no identification papers, was last month sentenced to 14 years for attempted murder.
Although he claimed to be 15 at the time of the attack, police sources now believe he may have been at least 18...
Mrs Mackay’s ordeal began in July last year when the boy was brought to her home near Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire. He had been picked up in the town by police and claimed to be a 15-year-old Palestinian called Aziz Achaheb-Cedar...
Mrs Mackay said she was given a report on him by the council – saying he joined in ‘family routines’ and ‘will wash up when asked’ – but it was far from reality. When he moved in, the teenager was provided with Sky TV in his bedroom, a bicycle and a mobile phone.Milton Keynes social services said the would-be killer had been ‘age assessed following established procedure.' He was thus 'deemed to be 15 years of age and thus was accepted as a child in care’.
Within a month, however, he had tried to steal Mrs Mackay’s car and attempted to hang himself. She told authorities she wanted to end the placement, but was persuaded to continue. By late September the youth’s behaviour had deteriorated further...
Social services agreed to re-home the teenager, but he disappeared two days later. After two weeks he returned, breaking in, taking a four-inch knife from the dishwasher and attacking Mrs Mackay as she slept at 2.15am. She said:
‘I grabbed the blade and just refused to let go of it. He tried to pull it away from me and in doing so he cut through 40 per cent of the tendons in my hands and almost severed a thumb.’
The youth fled when Mrs Mackay screamed."
"Social workers carried out a full assessment to gather as much information as possible. The assessment included a full risk assessment."Now that's what I call reassuring.
"The truth was that none of the authorities knew anything about this boy at all. But they were prepared to gamble and put him into my home where I had three other vulnerable children.That the point, Christine, when a Satanic group of evil men and women decide to make war in perpetuity upon a bewildered world, the world isn't supposed to feel safe.
He could have been 15 but he could have been 23. He could have been a paedophile or a rapist.
Social services go to such lengths to check those who foster and adopt. They check your friends, your family members, even your pets, but when it suits them they will ask you to take a huge risk with someone about whom they know nothing...
I was frightened of him. He was looking at me like he wanted to kill me... I did not feel safe in my own home."
On 5 February 2008, The Barking and Dagenham Post reported thus on a sinner-to-saint story with mushily typical PC flatulence:
"A talented young musician from Dagenham has set out to release his own album.
JOVAN ROBERTS, 22, from Martin's Corner, Dagenham, has overcome enormous odds to achieve what he has always dreamed of.
This is a true 'rags to riches' story - Jovan used to live on the streets and in the past he was involved with gangs. Now he and a friend record their own music in a studio in Bushgrove Road with styles and tastes ranging from R 'n' B to Hip-Hop and Rap.
Speaking about his past, Jovan said: 'When I left home I was living with my girl but I was a bit too young. I went back to my mum's but was kicked out for getting mixed up in gangs and hanging out with the wrong people'."
Well yee-hah and whoop-di-doo, is that nice? We all surely wish the poor, ex-gangster rapper ever so well. Yeah right.
On 23 September 2010, 79-year-old Audrey Walker was standing on a roundabout waiting to cross the road in Blackheath, south east London, when she was knocked down and killed by a car.
Jaswant Bains' Vauxhall Corsa had clipped the wing mirror of Marcus Bailey's Vauxhall Astra and the two had had a heated argument. Fearing for his safety, Bains had driven off at high speec with Bailey in hot pursuit.
Victoria Penner was overtaken by their cars moments before the crash. She said:
"I saw the first car bombing it towards me in me rear view mirror, it was going at a frightening speed. It was veering all over the place. After it passed me, I saw the next one. I thought, ‘oh God, it’s going to hit me. It was mental driving, I’ve not seen anything like it in 20 years of driving. It was like a scene from Starsky and Hutch, I couldn’t believe it."After crashing through the iron railings surrounding the roundabout, Bains emerged and sought sanctuary in an estate agents, where he pleaded to be hidden from his pursuer. Moments later, Bailey and a friend pulled up at the scene.
In court, Michael Singlehurst said:
"He was dripping with blood and shouting ‘help me, help me, they’re going to get me'."Michael also said that Bailey and his friend, who arrived on the scene moments later, 'were aggressive, shouting ‘where the f*** is he? I’m going to kill him'.'
Even as the police were taking Bains away, Bailey was still threatening violence towards Bains and was heard say he would 'f*** him up.'
Representing Bailey, Nicholas Corsellis said of Bains:
"He did not show any concern for the woman who he had just hit, only himself. He did not ask about her, but wanted people to help him leave the scene."On 23 March 2012, eighteen months after Audrey's death, Jaswant Bains was jailed for six years and Marcus Bailey for two.
Detective Inspector Mark Cam said:
"Miss Walker lost her life because of Bains and Bailey’s reckless behaviour, which started from a minor dispute on a public road. They both drove dangerously, recklessly, above the speed limit and without any consideration for members of the public."An old lady, going about her business, killed in England's capital by the irresponsible behaviour of two typically enriching examples of the PC Crowd's diversity agenda.
Truly a tale for these terrible times.
On 12 January 2012, Professor Steven Rawlings died when his ‘friend’, Dr Devinder Sivia, put him in headlock and kept him thus restrained for more than 20 minutes.
Sivia was subsequently arrested but was relased shortly afterwards.
On 28 November 2012, The Daily Mail reported thus:
“Eminent astrophysicist Professor Steven Rawlings, 50, had a heart attack while being restrained by Devinderjit Sivia – who said he was in fear of his life after the professor attacked him. He said he did not believe his friend was dying and was instead using the phrase as a 'melodramatic' attempt to get him to loosen his grip.So, Devinder Sivia kills Professor Steven Rawlings by holding him in headlock for more than 20 minutes.
After the incident, Dr Sivia emailed the professor’s wife, saying: ‘I’m terribly sorry, but I have killed him’, the inquest in Oxford heard.
Dr Sivia said he had been forced to defend himself after his ‘oldest and closest friend’ Prof Rawlings – whose mental health had recently deteriorated – threatened to kill him and started kicking and punching him.
When Prof Rawlings stumbled, Dr Sivia said he seized the opportunity to protect himself by getting the heavily built professor in a headlock.
Dr Sivia, who teaches maths at Oxford, said he was too afraid to let go AND HELD HIS FRIEND IN THAT POSITION FOR 20 MINUTES, bringing on the fatal heart attack. The former Nasa worker told the inquest yesterday that the troubled astrophysicist cried ‘GOODBYE, CRUEL WORLD’ as his body went limp.
Dr Sivia said he thought Prof Rawlings was ‘playing dead’ and may have been referring to a Pink Floyd rock song, as he had been earlier in the day. ‘I thought this might be a ploy to get me to release him because it was so melodramatic.’
Despite his brilliant career, Prof Rawlings, a lead scientist in the world’s largest radio telescope project, had suffered with mental health problems… In the week before his death on January 12, Prof Rawlings had begun to display similar symptoms. Dr Sivia agreed to let Prof Rawlings stay with him at his bungalow in Southmoor, near Abingdon, while Mrs Rawlings was on a training course in Philadelphia…
In the hours before Prof Rawlings’s death, neighbours said he had made several ‘weird statements’, such as ‘if I died tonight that wouldn’t be too bad’.
Later in the evening Prof Rawlings became hostile. ‘He said, ‘I’ve had a horrible life,’ then he said quietly ‘I’m going to kill you’,’ Dr Sivia said. ‘Suddenly he swung around without warning and punched me in the face. He was screaming ‘you’re going to die, you’re going to die.’ He wasn’t the Steven I knew.’
The pair struggled before Dr Sivia managed to restrain Prof Rawlings. After pinching his friend and getting no response, Dr Sivia called his neighbours for help. While neighbour Anthony Thompson called 999 and his wife Pamela performed CPR, Dr Sivia emailed Mrs Rawlings.
‘At 11.30pm, I got an email from Devinder saying ‘I’m terribly sorry but I have killed him. Sorry, Devinder’,’ Mrs Rawlings told the inquest…
Detectives arrested Dr Sivia on suspicion of murder and submitted a file to the Crown Prosecution Service, which decided against taking further action. Detective Sergeant Rob Storrar said Dr Sivia’s version of events was corroborated by the evidence available. The coroner recorded an accidental verdict.”
You know, when I ‘strangled’ an opponent back in the childhood day, or an opponent ‘strangled’ me, you’d squeeze for a second or two and then ease off.
You wouldn’t hold on for 20 minutes. You somehow knew that, if you held on for more than ten seconds, the oppo might end up in the graveyard.
Funny how a 49-year-old Professor didn’t realise the same thing, isn’t it?
Here’s another funny thing. The police, the coroner and the CPS seem to have been very quick to believe what the only eye witness was telling them, don't they? And, really, they don’t seem to have asked all that many searching questions. After Sivia had done his twenty minute thing, that is.
He was the only person who knew what happened that night. Because Steven was dead. And the police, the coroner and the CPS, well...
“That’s what Mr Sivia said, and that’s good enough for us!”That appears to be the case here, doesn’t it? And yet a big shot scientist was dead. After being held in a head lock for twenty minutes.
A bloke called Trowbridge H. Ford thought it strange as well. He seems to think the deaths of Gareth Williams, Gudrun Loftus, Neil Heywood and Steven are all linked.
Gareth Williams was a ’high-flying computer and encryption wizard’, Gudrun Loftus was a GCHQ expert and Gareth’s partner in deciphering something known as ‘the Afghan Log’. She was also a senior lecturer at St. John’s College, along with Sivia and Professor Rawlings.
Neil Heywood, the ‘businessman’ who met his end in China, poisoned, so we are told, by the wife of top Commie, Bo Xilai, was, according to Mr Ford, an MI6 agent.
If Ford is a conspiracy theorist, he is an impressively credentialed one. A former US Army Counter Intelligence Corps analyst and college politics Professor, his thoughts on these matters cannot be dismissed lightly.
Here’s what he says about Gudrun Loftus, Steven Rawlings and Devinder Sivia:
“Could the apparent murder of Professor Steven Rawlings by St. John's College Lecturer Devinder Sivia be the break we have been looking for regarding the apparent murder of his former colleague Gudrun Loftus?The above conjecture can be found here.
The old friends, Rawlings and Sivia, attend the annual ‘feast’ at St. John's College's Great Hall, and back at Sivia's bungalow, they get into a great fight about some ‘educational’ matter, and Rawlings dies after a heart attack because of the injuries received.
I have heard about all kinds of educational disputes… but I have never heard of one in an intimate social situation where one kills another.
Could their late-night conversation have become involved in what really happened to Ms. Loftus, say Rawlings joking about Sivia being the Fellow who found her dead, and wondering if he had actually killed her, resulting in the conversation going ballistic, and Rawlings soon following her.
Certainly deserves more investigation.
Now Rawlings' wife is claiming that her husband's death is a ‘tragic accident.’ While it might have been if he charged Sivia wrongly with being the person who met Gudrun Loftus on that fatal morning in October 2010 when she apparently was pushed backwards down the stairs to her death.
But what if Sivia was Loftus' killer or was involved in it, what drove Rawlings completely off the rails as he belatedly gained more information about it…
The only bit of convincing evidence now, it seems, is to disclose who was Loftus with when she died, and who discovered her body, what I'm sure the Thames Valley Police will never disclose, given its track record in covering up murders.”
Mr Ford also explores the murky world of espionage and offers us his opinion on the related deaths of Gareth Willams and Neil Heywood in the article.
Anyway, Devinder Sivia killed Steven Rawlings and, having done so, was found guilty of no crime by the establishment.
On 10 November 2012, 73-year-old Joseph Griffiths heard a noise, got up from his bed and went downstairs to investigate.
When he didn't return his wife, Judith, went looking for him. She found him lying in a pool of his own blood. Her husband was dead.
Joe had been stabbed seven times. Neighbour, Liam McIntyre, said:
"I was woken up by something, by a noise of what I thought was somebody shrieking. I heard a shout at 5.30 and I looked out of the window. I stayed up at the window and saw the police arrive. Then I knew something was wrong...Another neighbour, Kieran Donaghey, added:
It is awful. I hope that they can track them down and lock them up for a very long time."
"He was a kind man who was devoted to his wife. He was only trying to protect his wife and he has ended up dead. It’s so very sad."A statement released by Joe's family read:
"Joe was a husband, father and grandfather. He was a successful businessman who embraced life and lived it to the full. He took great pride in his business and it gave him immense satisfaction that three generations of the Griffiths family were employed there.On 13 November, Aaron De Silva was arrested and charged with murder and aggravated burglary.
Joe's sudden and tragic demise has shocked and saddened all who knew and loved him, and has left a great void in all our lives...
Joe leaves behind a wife, two sons and seven grandchildren, who all completely adore and miss him."
In the early hours of 22 December 2011, 45-year-old Jonathan Brierley was stabbed in the back at the Landseer Pub in Archway, North London.
He died at the scene.
Jonathan was celebrating a private birthday party when Jeremiah Watson, who was drunk, gatecrashed the event and began annoying the guests. He was ejected by the staff shortly afterwards. Jonathan assisted them as they did so.
Fuming, he went home, armed himself with a knife, returned and attempted to re-enter the pub. When he was prevented from doing so, he attacked Jonathan, who, at that point, had been standing innocently by, taking no part in the commotion at the door.
Detective Inspector Mark Lawson said:
"This was a cowardly and senseless attack on an innocent man who had done absolutely nothing wrong...On 5 September 2012, Judge Richard Hone sentenced Watson to a minimum of 24 years in jail after he was convicted of Jonathan's murder.
Watson has shown no remorse during this trial and shown a complete disregard for the victim and impact it has had on the family."
Summing up, he said:
"You have ruined many lives. It is said your own life is ruined but frankly that is your own fault. You are alive, your innocent victim is dead."
In the early hours of 10 June 2011, father-of-three, Paul Fyfe, was stabbed-to-death in the hallway of his girlfriend's home in Rowlatts Hill, Leicester.
Mohammed Adnam Hirsi and his friend, drug dealer Ameen Hassan Jogee, turned up at the home of Naomi Reid, whose husband was serving a lengthy jail term for drugs offences.
Paul was, at the time of his death, separated from wife and staying with Naomi.
Jogee and Hirsi had both taken cocaine, were drunk, 'angry and aggressive' and 'ready for a fight,' according to Naomi, having being refused entry to a friend's house.
At one point, Jogee grabbed a knife from a block in her kitchen and waved it around, threatening to 'shank' the friend who hadn't let them in.
Naomi wanted them out before Paul got home and told them so. They laughed at this and said they could 'take Paul out' if they wanted to.
After taking more cocaine they left. Naomi then sent Jogee a text telling him not to bring Hirsi to her house again. This annoyed them and they forced their way back in again shortly afterwards.
Meanwhile Paul, who had returned, came downstairs when he heard the commotion and asked Hirst and Jogee to leave. Encouraged by Jogee, Hirsi stabbed him at that point with the knife Jogee had picked up earlier.
Hirsi, who laughed when he was arrested shortly after the murder, told the police it was Jogee who was responsible. Jogee, however, told them he didn't know Paul had been stabbed until they had left the house and saw the knife. He said that Hirsi laughed 'like it was a joke' and 'licked the blade of the knife in front of him,' when he asked him what he'd done.
On 29 March 2012, Hirsi was sentenced to a minimum of 22 years, Jogee was jailed for 20.
Addressing Hirsi, Judge Linda Dobbs said:
"You are a cold, arrogant and dangerous man who demanded respect. But from your attitude during the trial you demonstrated a lack of concern or respect for others."In a victim impact statement, Paul's mother, Isobel, said:
"My son served his country in the first Gulf War. We thought he was safe when he came home, only for him to die on a dark night in Leicester."No one's safe any more, Isobel. Our world is now a war zone. Those who rule our lives see us as the enemy. They have done their best to destroy the stable and harmonious society in which you and I both grew up and, for the most part, their efforts have succeeded.
The murderous, drug-addicted immigrant is, of course, a willing footsoldier in this unspoken war.
On 20 August 2011, 25-year-old Luke Moran was stabbed at a party in the Clifton area of Nottingham.
He died in hospital a little while later.
Having just arrived, Luke was sitting on his bike in the garden when single mother-of-three, Kerry Holden, approached him and accused him of 'slapping' her brother, Ashley, years earlier.
In court, she would later state that she had raised her voice when speaking to Luke but apologised when he said his twin brother was responsible.
After the original confrontation, Holden went into the kitchen, grabbed a knife and returned to the garden, where she began berating Luke once again. As she did so she stabbed him through the heart without warning.
Despite the injury, Luke left the scene and cycled away. He collapsed in the road moments later.
In court, Leesa Mullen said Holden 'was just drunk' and added:
"All I can remember was something about the brother, saying, 'you beat my brother up'."At the party, Holden was heard to say:
"I've got three kids and can't go to prison for this".On 8 March 2012, she was convicted of Luke's murder.
Detective Chief Inspector Kate Meynell said:
"Luke was a popular lad in Clifton and a lot of people have been affected by his death. For reasons only known to her, Kerry Holden went to get a knife and stabbed him in the chest.Holden's brothers, Ashley and Jason, were cleared of perverting the course of justice. They were alleged to have gone to the homes of prosecution witnesses and asked them to alter their evidence and not to refer to the comment their sister had made at the scene.
It takes a very angry person to do something like that. She just said 'it wasn't me and I don't know who it is' and she offered no other explanation.
This crime had a massive impact on the family and resulted from something which appears so trivial. They are left without a son. The impact on them is massive and it has been very difficult for them."
Sentencing her to a minimum term of 18 years, Mrs Justice Dobbs said:
"You should have thought about your children before you started the argument with Luke Moran over nothing. Sadly, it is your children who will suffer during your incarceration."Speaking after the verdict, Luke's father, Andy, said:
"Luke never did anything. We'll never understand why she did it. He was killed over something he didn't do, and that's what makes it harder."You don't have to 'do' anything to get killed by an enricher, Andy.
It might just be in the mood.
On 4 February 2012, 17-year-old Daniel Stringer-Prince was chased, badly beaten and left for dead by a large gang of Asians in Hyde, Greater Manchester.
Daniel's friend, Kavan, who was with him and whose nose was broken in the attack, said:
"I just can’t understand why it happened. I’d never seen any of them in my life before."His mother, Cheryl, said:
"We won’t know the extent of the damage behind his eye until his swelling goes down. He then needs plastic surgery on the eye socket... He also has several fractures to his cheek that need plastic surgery and he also has a fractured skull.Later, she added:
It’s going to be a long, long battle for my gorgeous boy. I still can’t understand why they left him in the road to die."
"I didn't even recognise him when I saw him in hospital after the attack. He's needed two new eye sockets, he's got three metal plates in his face to try and rebuild it...On 3 December 2012, takeaway worker, Ali Haydor, was jailed for two years for leading the attack on Daniel. Addressing him, Judge Leslie Hull QC:
I wish someone would tell me why they left my baby for dead in the road. I’m lucky to still have him."
"You punched him at last twice about his face. That served as an invitation for the rest of the group to then set about him, kicking him in his head and his body. It only came to an end when a car drove up alongside."At the time of the attack, the police said there was no evidence of provocation and they were 'treating the attack as a serious hate crime.' However, when the case came to court, all take of 'hate crime' and 'racial motivation' had been forgotten.
On 13 January 2012, Zahoor Hussain, was sentenced to 32 months in prison for dangerous driving.
Despite three previous convictions for driving whilst disqualified, on 6 September 2010 he was driving his father's car at 50mph in a 30mph zone.
He crashed and his passengers, 17-year-old Zoe Smith and Afzal Hussain, neither of whom were wearing seatbelts, were badly injured.
Zoe died in hospital the following day.
When Zahoor Hussain was examined, he was found to have cannabis in his bloodstream and, at the time of the crash, he was also the subject of a drink-drive ban.
Subsequently, he phoned Zoe's mother and assured her he was NOT the driver of the car.
Which was a lie.
On 11 October 2010, 52-year-old Julian Gardner was found dead in the grounds of Bush Barn Farm, near Robertsbridge, East Sussex.
On 11 April 2012, four 'travellers' were found guilty of his manslaughter.
On 12 April 2012, The Daily Mail reported thus:
"Two brothers who ran over and killed a businessman with his own car as he defended his farm were yesterday jailed for 11 years each. But they showed no remorse, with one even shouting at his victim’s 93-year-old mother: ‘Eleven years? I’ll do it standing on my head.’Six months before he killed Mr Gardner, the thug was released from prison on licence after serving half of a six-year sentence for another violent burglary.
Marcus Bristow, 32, taunted her as he was led down to the cells after being sentenced for the manslaughter of father-of-one Julian Gardner, 52...
Judge Scott-Gall said: ‘Julian Gardner was a decent, honourable, hard-working man who was killed in a ghastly manner for doing no more than trying to protect burglars from stealing his property. Nothing can reverse the effect this has had on the family. As they have sat throughout this entire trial, they have not seen or heard a flicker of remorse.’
Two other men in the gang based at a travellers’ site in Ashford, Kent, were convicted of manslaughter and three others for less serious offences.
During sentencing, it emerged that Terence Bristow (immediate left) had 34 previous convictions, some for theft and violence, dating back to when he was just 11.
His brother (far left) had 11 previous convictions, including for burglary and theft. The gang, whose sentences totalled 45 years, had more than 80 previous convictions between them.
In a statement after the case at Lewes Crown Court, their victim’s mother Molly and his sister Anna Murphy said: ‘They will be released from their sentence. We, as Julian’s family, will never be released from our sorrow. Our Julian was above all a good and decent man who worked hard all his life.’
His business partner, Damien Porter, who found his body, broke down in tears and said: ‘They should have been sent down for longer’...
The Bristow brothers were the 'prime movers' in a gang who were sentenced for a combined 45 years, with four convicted for manslaughter and the remaining three for less serious offences. Also jailed for those charges were Paul Dunn, 33, from Cranbrook, and Lee Delay, 23, from Tunbridge Wells, who got seven years each.
Oliver Payne, 25, from Tunbridge Wells, was jailed for three years and Christopher Leek, 30, from Cranbrook, was jailed for four-and-a-half after being convicted of conspiracy to commit burglary and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice. Paul Dunn’s father, Terrence Dunn, 57, of Sandhurst, Kent, received 18 months for conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.
Christopher Leek was the only gang member with a clean criminal record."
On 8 August 2011, 34-year-old Gavin Clarke was shot in the face in a busy Leeds street.
Children were playing in the street at the time and some actually felt the force of the shotgun blast.
Gavin died four days later.
On 12 March 2012, drug dealer, Afzal Arif, was sentenced to a minimum of 33 years in prison for Gavin's murder.
Jailing Arif, Judge Peter Collier QC said:
“You are a very dangerous person and whilst you remain dangerous you will not be released... It was also a shooting of a black man by an Asian which did lead that night to tensions in the community...
This was all happening at a time of heightened tension across the country... The weekend of 6th and 7th of August was when London burned and the 8th and 9th the days when rioting and widespread public disorder spread to other cities. This event could so easily have sparked very serious rioting in Leeds."The following were all jailed for consiracy to pervert the course of justice: Ibrar Din; Sohail Mahmood; Saeed Hussain and Bilal Bakhat. Each received a sentence of between three and four years.
Well, we all heard about the death of Mark Duggan at the hands of a police officer, didn't we? And it isn't just the judge who knows what problems that caused.
Anyone hear about the death of Gavin Clarke at the hands of an Asian drug dealer at the same time? Anyone outside Leeds hear about the disturbances in Chapeltown and Harehills?
Ever wonder why not?
On 11 March 2012, The Daily Mail reported thus:
“A notorious police killer is being released after 15 years but HE MUST BE HOUSED IN AN AREA WITH FEW POLICE ON THE STREETS TO PROTECT HIS MENTAL HEALTH. Magdi Elgizouli, 44, was diagnosed as having a pathological hatred of the police after HE KNIFED A YOUNG WPC TO DEATH IN 1997.Are the lunatics running the asylum, ladies and gents? Well, yes, of course they are. They’re also out here with us in ‘the quieter London suburb.’
The schizophrenic has now been deemed well enough to be transferred from a secure unit to a community hostel, but PSYCHIATRISTS STILL FEAR HIS MENTAL STATE COULD BE ADVERSELY AFFECTED IF HE SEES POLICE on patrol.
As a result, following consultations with Scotland Yard, it has been decided that it would be INAPPROPRIATE TO ALLOW HIM TO LIVE IN INNER LONDON, because it has a high concentration of police. Instead ELGIZOULI IS BEING LINED UP TO LIVE IN A QUIETER LONDON SUBURB.
Details of his new home are a closely guarded secret. Although there are concerns about how Elgizouli will react to seeing police officers, PSYCHIATRISTS CLAIM HE IS NOT A DANGER TO THE PUBLIC.”
Where there are so very few cops.
If we ever happen to need one.
The father of the WPC whom Elgizouli murdered, retired Metropolitan Police Chief Superintendent, Sidney Mackay, said this:
“My daughter’s gone and he should have taken the consequences, and not be allowed to resume a normal life when we are living with her loss on a daily basis. ‘I hope that his freedom of movement does not allow him to return to his old practice of taking large quantities of cannabis.”In a letter to the Mental Health Review Tribunal in 2008, Sydney had previously said:
“We owe it to the memory and love we bear our daughter not to see her death disappear as another statistic. . . while the person responsible resumes his life as if nothing happened.”On 26 August 2008, The Daily Mail reported the reason for Sydney‘s disquiet:
“Police have been warned of the dangers of approaching a dangerous schizophrenic who is BACK ON THE STREETS just ten years after being locked up indefinitely for killing a WPC. Magdi Elgizouli, 40, who has a deluded hatred of the police, has been granted leave from a secure psychiatric unit four hours a week in preparation for his permanent release. He is also allowed out a further five hours each month to visit his brother.So, if the ‘dangerous schizophrenic’ has been on a cannabis binge, forgets to take his tablets and, all of a sudden decides to stick something sharp in me because I remind him of Dixon of Dock Green, he ‘shouldn’t be approached’ by a police officer?
Mental health chiefs say they believe Elgizouli's psychiatric condition has improved significantly since he killed WPC Nina Mackay, and have granted him supervised release to help reintegrate him back into society.
However, police disagree, and an urgent message has been issued under Scotland Yard's 'officer alert system' warning that ELGIZOULI IS A GRAVE THREAT TO OFFICERS' SAFETY AND SHOULD NOT BE APPROACHED.”
Because he may prove a ‘grave threat’ to their safety?’
You couldn’t make it up, could you?
Let’s have a look at what the ‘dangerous schizophrenic’ did back in October 1997.
Shortly before Magdi Elgizouli launched a savage attack upon Pauline Jones, he had attacked a police officer. And yet, even though he was carrying a 7in bladed knife at the time of the attack, even though he had been sent to a special hospital following an unprovoked attack against a stranger in 1992, the cops had bailed him.
Pauline and her husband were working in their Worthing pharmacy when Pauline saw Elgizouli steal a tooth brush. When she confronted him, he punched her to the floor and kicked her. Pauline said:
“I could tell that when he had me on the floor he really wanted to hurt me. I was told afterwards that he always had this knife with him and if David (her husband) hadn't intervened I don't know what might have happened.”The Sussex constabulary were well aware that Elgizouli had a long history of violence and was a care-in-the-community patient, so why was he given bail after being apprehended for attacking one of their own? Why was this violent knife-carrying nutcase allowed out to attack someone else?
The attack upon the policeman wasn't an isolated incident either. He had been arrested and bailed for arson a little while before.
So, a mental health patient who has been arrested and bailed twice in the previous ten days for violent, life-threatening behaviour, was arrested for the attack on Pauline and found to be in possession of another long-bladed knife.
Guess, what happened next? The Sussex police force bailed Magdi Elgizouli yet again!
The boys-in-blue would later say that they had freed him because they had no concerns about him. Do you get this? The cops were not concerned about a violent knife-carrying nut, who had a desperately nutty RECENT history of anti-social violence, being out here in the community with the rest of us.
It is war, ladies and gentlemen, it really is. It's a war that is being carried out by those at the top of the tree against those at the bottom and in the middle. It is a war that is being waged by those we always thought were duty-bound to protect us. Whereas, in fact, they have been busy, over the years, arranging that the safeguards our ancestors put in place to keep us from harm, are removed.
A lovely, young woman would pay the ultimate price in this war.
On 24 October 1997, 25-year-old WPC Nina Mackay was murdered in Stratford, East London. Elgizouli stabbed Nina to death as she entered his East London flat as as part of an armed team sent to arrest him for jumping bail. Bail that had been granted by Highbury Corner magistrates with so litle thought for the consequences.
Nina had insisted on being the first through the door and had removed her body armour in order to get a better swing at the door with the battering ram she was using.
The same undeclared war that ushered Nina into her grave determines, nowadays, that young women like her must put themselves in harm's way in precisely the same way that men do. Thus, when a plucky, female police officer's body armour is ill-fitting, uncomfortable and an impediment to her taking her turn with the battering ram, rather than her male colleagues taking over, she will loosen that ill-fitting armour, considerably lessening her chances of survival if attacked.
And, in this PC day and age, her colleagues will choose to say nothing for fear of being labelled sexist.
In court, Elgizouli denied murder but admitted manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility. Which is the standard plea in cases like this. His barrister, Bruce Houlder QC, said Elgizouli was a deeply religious man. He also said that he believed that he was about to be beaten and raped by the officers sent to arrest him.
Which is a typical thing that a loony-tune might come out with in a British court these days, by way of explanation for his murderous behaviours.
Following the publication of a report commissioned by Kensington, Chelsea and Westminster and East London and the City health authorities, along with the London councils of Westminster and Newham, Nina's father, posed the question:
“How was this man allowed to be where he was on that night, armed with a knife?”He supplied the answer himself, saying:
“Community care and THE LACK OF IT, which was on-going since 1994 and particularly the last six months preceding my daughter's death. I hope this report will not end up like my daughter, just another statistic.”After Elgizouli's trial Sydney said:
“He has got art and guile and will try and manipulate the system to his advantage. We must be sure that he does not get out until a tribunal, a High Court judge or whatever decides he is safe to be on our streets.”Of his daughter's death, he said:
“No one can describe what it has been like. It is as if a part of me has been torn out. All the family share the same horror at losing my lovely daughter.”After hearing how the agencies dealing with her daughter's killer made a catalogue of mistakes, Patricia Mackay, said:
“The consequences, as in this particular case, led to the violent death of a committed, courageous policewoman, my dearly- loved daughter Nina, who had everthing to live for. A young woman paid the highest price for all the mistakes made by others. A far too high price to pay.When the report did not find fault with Sussex Police, Pauline Jones was scathing. She said:
I can only hope that the inquiry's team's recommendations are viewed as a priority and implemented by the government and all the agencies concerned before another precious life is lost, devastating the lives of family and friends.”
“If Elgizouli had been remanded in custody Nina Mackay would still be alive today.”The Met's Commander for North East London, Michael Craik, said:
“Following this tragedy, we have reviewed a number of our procedures for dealing with such incidents.”So that's alright, then.
At his trial, in April 1998, Sir Lawrence Verney, the Recorder of London, ordered Elgizouli to be kept in Rampton with no limit of time. However, on the 21 February 2005, The Evening Standard reported thus:
“A schizophrenic who was locked up indefinitely for killing a policewoman is on the brink of freedom from a mental hospital after seven years. Magdi Elgizouli, 37, could soon be released after experts decided he was ready to be 'reintegrated' into society…In 2008, after being informed that Elgizouli was back on the streets, Sydney Mackay said:
The tribunal of experts is thought to have concluded he is no longer a danger to the public, as long as he takes the necessary drugs.”
“This is a man who became psychotic-through the use of cannabis and has expressed hatred for the police. In the run-up to the death of my daughter, he refused to take his medication and jumped bail. I cannot believe he has changed much in the intervening years.”Neither can I, Sydney. The only people who could imagine that a Magdi Elgizouli is capable of positive change would be those fully paid up members of the PC Crowd who don‘t have to live alongside him.
Anyway, a second-generation Sudanese psychopath is nowadays back on the streets of England, just as free as he likes to do to us what he once did to Nina Nackay.
They ARE at war with us, ladies and gentlemen.
The Magdi Elgizouis are their footsoldiers.
On 17 June 2012, an Afghan asylum-seeker went to Buckingham Palace and, at the gates, asked to see the Queen.
Questioned by the police, Ghodratollah Barani said that he was the King and demanded an audience with the Queen. Rebuffed, he left without gaining entry.
However, the following day, he was back. In court, Zoe Johnson, prosecuting, said:
"He was taken to St Thomas's. Doctors examined him and decided he was suffering from 'situational crisis' because he was homeless and was waiting for adjudication of his asylum claim."The next day, he returned to hospital complaining of back pain. He returned the following day and was, again, discharged.
The next day, the 21st of June, he went back to Buckingham Palace and, according to Zoe Johnson:
"He grabbed the gate and would not let go. He demanded it should be opened."Once again, he was led away by the police. Despite telling them he was the king of Afghanistan and was hearing voices in his head, they did not think this behaviour was symptomatic of mental illness, He was thought to be putting on an act to gain asylum.
The police then referred him to social services and took him to Victoria station for a cup of coffee. Barani, however, ran off and returned to the palace. Once again, he demanded to be let in.
He was then taken to the Gordon Hospital in Pimlico, where he was seen 'over a number of hours'. Despite his extremely strange track record and Barani's admission that he had thought of killing someone in order to become king, the various learned doctors decided he was faking it and 'there were no grounds to admit him.'
After being sent on his way that evening, Barani returned to the palace and, yet again, demanded to see the Queen. Again, he was seen off.
That night, in the early hours of 22 June 2013, he came across Mark Morrison, a homeless Scot, asleep on a bench in Marble Arch.
Barani strangled him to death.
Later that day, he returned once more to Buckingham Palace, saying he 'needed to see the Queen because he had some problems she could solve.'
The police, unaware of his connection to the killing, issued him with an exclusion order from the Royal Parks. He, subsequently, breached the order and was arrested.
And then released.
On 24 June, he was, once agin, detained outside the palace. The following day he tried to run into the palace during the Changing of the Guards ceremony. He was arrested again.
And then released.
Some time later, a Scotland Yard spokesman said:
"On June 29 a man was seen acting suspiciously by officers in the vicinity of Horseguards Parade. He was arrested and taken to a central London police station. Following a match on the DNA database to forensic samples taken at the scene of the murder Barani was charged."In court, Judge Christopher Moss said:
"I have no doubt from what I have read and heard that (Mark's death) was entirely preventable."To Barani, with whom he seemed to have some sympathy, he said:
"Voices were telling you you had to kill someone in order to become king, that you had to kill in order to become king of England. After the killing, the voices told you to return to Buckingham Palace saying you will be king of England...Mark, a former chef, had been sleeping on a bench in Marble Arch since being made homeless a few months before.
You were taken to hospital and despite telling doctors you were trying to seek refuge there and wanted to see the Queen, you were not diagnosed with mental illness."
Barani was ordered to be detained in a secure hospital without limit of time.
A sadly typical tale of these awful times.
Between 1 June and 15 July 15 2011, police believe as many as twenty patients were deliberately poisoned when saline solutions were injected with insulin at Stepping Hill hospital in Stockport.
At least eight people died.
In January 2012, male nurse, Victorino Chua, was arrested at his home on three counts of murder and 19 counts of GBH.
Iniatially, the Filipino immigrant was released on bail until September 2012. This was then extended until January 2013. In January 2013, bail was further extended until 9 July 2013.
A year earlier, at the time of Chua's arrest, Assistant Chief Constable Terry Sweeney was saying:
"It is due to the diligence of staff at the hospital that we were made aware about the potential tampering of medical records and everyone should be reassured that, like the hospital, we initiated a swift response and have consequently arrested a member of staff in relation to this matter."However, before this, in September 2011, a 'police source' was saying:
"There was virtually no security or checks for access to the medicine stores. Almost anyone could gain access, including nurses, patients and even visitors. Some were taking medicines for personal use or for use at home with their families while others were even selling it on.He added:
At one point, the chief constable wanted to shut the hospital down completely... he was so angry at what was going on inside there and how it was impeding the investigation."
"It is believed that there may be at least two individuals responsible. One of them, a man, has already been spoken to by detectives and his fingerprints are on one of the pivotal damaged sets of saline solution. There is also a different set of fingerprints on the other damaged solution."Before this, on 20 July 2011, Greater Manchester Police had arrested a 27-year-old English nurse called Rebecca Leighton and kept her in prison for six weeks before releasing her without charge in early September 2011.
She is now suing for wrongful arrest.
One suspect gets arrested and festers in prison for six weeks, another gets arrested and bailed. Three times.
The September 2011, 'police source' also said this at that time:
"The net is definitely closing in."He was wrong. Twenty one months after the first patient died, no charges have, as yet, been brought.
On the evening of 6 May 2011, 17-year-old student, Emily Longley, arrived at the Bournemouth home of the wealthy Turner family.
The following morning she was found dead in her boyfriend's bed.
The Turners were arrested after police secretly recorded more than 291 hours of conversation that took place in their home after Emily's death.
On 23 April 2012, The Daily Mail reported thus:
"The son of a wealthy jeweller strangled his model girlfriend in bed during a jealous rage at his parents’ home before they helped him cover up the murder...
Elliot Turner, 20, allegedly ‘flipped out’ and killed student Emily Longley, 17, after becoming suspicious that she had been having affairs during their four-month relationship.In evidence read out to the court, Leigh Turner was alleged to have said: 'Elliot f****** strangled her.' The court also heard that Leigh stated: 'I cannot tell them (the police) about the letter I destroyed by bleach saying he (Elliot Turner) killed her but he didn’t mean it.'
Turner is said to have threatened to kill Miss Longley with a hammer and boasted: ‘I will go to prison for it and still be a millionaire when I come out'...
Jurors were told a police bug of the family home in Bournemouth recorded the family talking about ‘fabricating evidence and lying to police’... When arrested he had his passport in his pocket and his bags packed, Winchester Crown Court was told.
Earlier he had said: 'We have perverted the course of justice by destroying evidence.' But Anita Turner was heard to say they had been right to do it.Described by his own solicitor as ‘brash, flash, boastful and spoilt’, Elliot Turner wrote more than 25 letters to friends during his time on remand, bragging about his lifestyle and insisting his family would throw a lavish party when he was cleared.
Elliot Turner was heard to say: 'I just flipped. I went absolutely nuts... I just lost it. I grabbed her as hard as I could'...
Elliot Turner denies murder and perverting the course of justice, while Anita and Leigh Turner, who run a jewellers in the resort, both deny perverting the course of justice.
Tim Mousley QC, prosecuting, told the jury...
'However short their relationship was, during it Elliot Turner showed himself to be threatening, aggressive, violent, controlling and possessive towards Emily Longley. These aspects of Elliot Turner became more and more obsessive and culminated in killing Emily Longley in his bedroom in the middle of the night'...
The student had been born in Britain but her family had emigrated when she was nine. She had returned to live with her grandparents in Bournemouth, Dorset, to study. Turner had then become angry over a Facebook picture of her 'flirting with lads in a car' in New Zealand. He hated the way she wore revealing clothes and called her a whore on the night the prosecution say he strangled her...
Turner made previous threats to kill Emily using a lump hammer and even practised how to strangle her with his friend Tom Crowe, the court heard.
The pair argued and then made up several times in April and May with one minute Turner buying her flowers and a Twix but then Emily texting him to say: 'Hit me with a mallet? Do what ever you want to me I will never get back with you. I actually hate you...'
On one occasion in the weeks before Emily died Turner had told friends he had killed her using the hammer in a nightclub car park but then said he was joking.
Mr Mousley said that his fears and anger led to the alleged murder in the early hours of May 7, after Emily agreed to stay at his home despite a series of rows and violence, but the ambulance was not called until 9.45 that morning after several phone calls between parents and son.
When Turner was arrested he said: 'I never meant to harm her, I just defended myself.' He then made no comment in police interviews.
Police examined his computer and found searches about death by strangulation, the court heard.
The jury was told Leigh Turner admitted destroying the letter... Anita Turner... could not account for the delay in calling for an ambulance...
Turner denies murder. He and his parents deny perverting the course of justice."
He was wasn't cleared. On 22 May 2012, after the jury had found him guilty of Emily Longley's murder, Elliot ‘all-talk’ Turner was sentenced to a miniumum of 16 years in jail, by Judge Linda Dobbs. Summing up, she described Emily as a 'lovely, kind, fun-loving, girl who brought a ray of sunshine to the lives she touched', and added:
"You told your parents that you loved Emily Longley but you really don’t know the meaning of the word love... Loving someone is not seeking to control that person’s life, not telling someone they are a whore, not telling friends to threaten them and not slagging them off to friends. You did not love her – she was just a trophy...Anita and Leigh Turner were, subsequently, jailed for 27 months for perverting the course of justice.
You could not be seen to be dumped by her or be seen to look like an idiot in front of your friends. Your anger grew, your resentment built up and festered.
Your arrogance during your relationship with Emily Longley, during your time on remand and even throughout this trial has been breathtaking. Your lack of remorse is chilling.
It was clear she wanted to be free from you and you were not going to let that happen. If you couldn’t have her, no-one else would...
You can put away your thoughts of champagne, Bentleys and girls.”
Afterwards, Emily’s mother, Caroline, said:
"It was as if she (Anita Turner) thought 'If Elliot hadn’t met Emily, it would never have happened'...A police officer, 'close to the case' said of Anita Turner:
We all want to protect our children. But there comes a point where you have to draw the line and say 'I am sorry. I don’t condone that behaviour. It’s wrong. You have taken the life of somebody’."
“Her behaviour has been disgusting. Any decent person would have shown some sense of feeling for what Emily’s parents have had to face. As it is, the death of a young girl in her house seemed to mean nothing to Mrs Turner.Emily’s father, Mark, added:
She treated the police as if they were criminals, she showed no embarrassment at the situation she was in and no sympathy for Emily’s parents.”
"The chilling aspect for us was when he said on the tape 'Emily has ruined my life' and the mother said 'SHE HAS.' And he says '****ing bitch.' That just stood out...
I thought the mother was a lot like Turner. She was quite arrogant, quite confrontational... The way the mother used to look us in the eye when we walked into court, it was like it was our fault because we raised Emily. There was no remorse. It was disgusting...Anita Turner is Indonesian.
I BLAME THE MOTHER."
P.S. Since his incarceration, Eliott Turner has been attacked by fellow prisoners on several occasions.
On 9 July, 2011, 30-year-old Marcus Hutton was involved in an argument near his parents home in Dudley, West Midlands.
Despite being with one of his children, Delroy Hines had been staring at his girlfriend's behind and had wolf-whistled her. After Marcus remonstrated with him, Hines punched him to the ground.
Hines then drove away from the scene but 'cruelly' returned a short time later to recover his hat, just as Marcus' mother, a nurse, was administering first aid.
The registration number of his vehicle was taken at this time.
Before Hines was apprehended, Detective Inspector Gary Dring said:
"This is a terribly tragic and needless event which has left a young father on life support machine... The victim was walking with his partner and 10-year-old daughter to his parents house to help some DIY work."Despite his mother's best efforts, Marcus died later in hospital.
On 9 December 2011, Hines was sentenced to five years in prison after earlier pleading guilty to Marcus' manslaughter.
In court, Judge John Warner said:
"You accept you were looking at his fiancee's bottom and he was unhappy about what you were doing... You then chose to act in that way and a man has died. I am satisfied it was indeed a very heavy blow. This was an uncalled for degree of violence committed in public and, worse of all, in front of the victim's fiancee and young daughter."On 9 May 2012, Hines appeal against the sentence was dismissed. In court it was noted that he had an 'appalling' criminal record and 'used violence' to 'solve a problem'.
As he was being lead away by prison officers, Marcus' mother said:
"He is an animal. Why was he out to do this to my son?"The second sentence is answered by the first.
On 17 June 2011, 97-year-old Nora Gutmann was badly injured as she crossed Marylebone Road in London.
After she was hit by a lorry being driven by Portuguese immigrant, Joao Pedro Correia Lopes, she was taken to St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington where she died shortly afterwards.
On 1 August 2012, Lopes was sentenced to four years in prison after he admitted causing Nora’s death by dangerous driving.
Lopes had also knowingly causing false data to be recorded on recording equipment. His tachograph had been altered to show the lorry was not being driven when it was.
He was also banned from driving for six years.
On 5 February 2009, 30-year-old TV producer, Eilidh Cairns, was cycling along Pembridge Road in Notting Hill, when she was struck by a tippper Lorry at a pedestrian crossing.
As she lay trapped under the lorry's wheel, she pleaded with a woman to stay with her until the ambulance arrived. Eyewitnesses Melinda Ross said:
"I heard a loud bang and a scream. I saw a woman trapped under the second wheel of the lorry. Her body from the waist down was under the tyre itself. She asked me to help her and not to leave. She found it hard to breathe and was in pain.
She kept asking where the ambulance was."Eilidh died in hospital shortly afterwards.
The inquest found that the road was too narrow for the lorry at the point where it hit her. It narrowed to two metres and the lorry was 2.5 metres wide.
Joao Lopes was driving the lorry that killed Eilidh Cairns.
In a statement Eilidh’s sister Kate, who set up the See Me Save Me campaign, said that the justice system had failed her family and led to Lopes being free to drive his lorry with fatal consequences for Ms Gutmann.
The only charges Lopes ever faced in connection with Eilidh’s death related to driving with defective vision, for which he received three points on his licence and a £200 fine, with the police only checking his eyesight at the Cairns’ family’s insistence three months after the fatal incident.
Other criticisms levelled at the police included an assumption, disproved by evidence from witnesses discovered by the Cairns family, that she had been riding alongside the lorry, rather than being positioned in front of it, which was in fact the case.
Kate Cairns said this after Lopes pleaded guilty in the Nora Gutmann case.
“For three years I have battled the whole way through an inadequate system which assumes the guilt of the cyclist, and which is rife with incompetence and complacency and which has failed us all on so many levels.
There was no interest in carrying out a proper investigation nor in finding witnesses. The police report was riddled with assumptions, omissions and conclusions contrary to evidence, obvious even to a layperson but there was no interest from the CPS in questioning it.A telling obituary for an obscene age.
Only after the death of someone else, three years later, have the police acknowledge the report was inadequate and reviewed the case of Eilidh’s death...
All I wanted was the truth so that other deaths could be avoided and other families did not have to suffer. We have not had justice today, clearly there are many more drivers like Lopes on our streets.
Their employers need to take responsibility... and comply with legislation... These trucks are lethal killers, not designed for our urban streets. Those presenting the most risk must manage that risk.
Whilst they profit, innocent people die."
On 14 August 2012, 91-year-old Lynne Elmer-Laird was attacked and robbed in Highgate, north London.
After refusing to give up her handbag, she ended up with a broken arm and had to undergo an emergency operation to remove a blood clot from her brain.
The mugger took her purse which contained her bank card, travel pass and £20 in cash. Lynne said afterwards:
"He was a big guy, well over six-foot tall, and very strong. He shoved me hard and I smacked my head against the pavement. I was in such pain but he just ran off down the road and left me.PC Paul Hallas said:
I can't believe something like that could happen in broad daylight. It's awful. I don't know what the Government is doing getting rid of all those police."
"Whoever did this left an elderly woman on the ground in the street, without a care for her welfare. Words can’t express the level of depravity the perpetrator stooped to when he targeted this woman."Eric Banton, who had 39 previous convictions, was high on drink and crack cocaine when he attacked Lynne. He was supposed to be attending a meeting with his probation officer at the time.
In court, Lynne said:
“I didn’t go out, I couldn’t, my face was such a mess I couldn’t face going out to see anybody. I do go out now, with care. I don’t go out very far, I can’t walk very far. But I’m getting my confidence back and I’m determined to go on with things.”Judge James Patrick said this to Banton:
“You were robbing an elderly and vulnerable lady for money to buy drugs. This was not a purely opportunistic attack... There is no mitigation for this ghastly offence on a 91-year-old lady...The day before he put Lynne in hospital, Banton had been given a four-month suspended sentence after he admitted theft and drug cultivation. Referring to this the judge said:
You are unable to live in society. You target the vulnerable and the weak.”
“You celebrated your good fortune with a binge of drink and drugs.”He then jailed Banton for 11 years.
Outside the court, Lynne said:
“I’m pleased with the sentence: it keeps him off the street and buys the public some safety...Life ought to be precious. But with characters like Banton around, and those we vote for shipping a load more in every day, I couldn't honestly say it's as precious as it was.
I am not going to let this stop me going out. I am looking forward to turning 100. Life is very precious.”
After he was left on his own at Andrew Parsons' apartment, Paul Henry microwaved his cat, Suzie, on 26 July 2011.
He then scribbled 'Menu fried cat £1.20' on the wall before leaving. He also sent text messages about the incident to his girlfriend, Claire Boswell. One said:
“Just cooking Andy’s cat in microwave, be two minutes.”
“I found my cat’s remains in the microwave... I was sickened, distraught, I could not believe it. I had her since she was four-weeks-old.”Henry was arrested and BAILED.
The image shown above is how The Lincolnshire Echo represented Henry to its readership. Bit of a difference between this and the reality, don't you think?
With the PC Crowd in charge, ladies and gents, things are rarely what they seem at first glance.
In September 2011, Henry climbed onto Claire's roof, entered her house and said he intended to kill her. He was rearrested on the 14th for breaching a court order supposed to prevent him harassing her.
He appeared before magistrates the following day and was given an eight-week SUSPENDED prison sentence. (Suzie the cat seems to have been forgotten)
Henry then telephoned Claire. She answered, he remained silent. A little later he phoned her again and said:
"I'm out."That same day, he went to her house, smashed a window to gain entry, took a knife from her kitchen drawer and chased her upstairs, swearing and shouting:
"I'm going to kill you."He then stabbed her. The knife entered her breast and punctured her liver, causing life-threatening injuries.
In January 2012, on remand for Claire's attempted murder, Suzie the cat was remembered and he was given six months for causing her unnecessary suffering.
On trial for Claire's attempted murder, the court head that Henry had been convicted numerous times for violence against others, starting when he was just twelve. He had also assaulted another girlfriend twice and had cut the fingers off a relative of another.
Henry said that he had stabbed Claire by accident. Sentencing him to nine years for attempted murder in November 2012, Judge Michael Heath described this claim as 'nonsense' and added:
"I have no doubt you are dangerous. There is a significant risk to members of the public... You deliberately stabbed her in attempt to kill her... This incident followed several years of you making Miss Boswell's life a misery."The jury was told that Claire had phoned the police to complain about Henry on more than forty occasions. A Lincolnshire Police spokesman said:
"The victim in the case suffered at the hands of Henry for around a decade."Henry's track record made no difference at all to those who know so much better that we what justice is. Justice nowadays would appear to be the creation of circumstances where it is likely that a serial criminal will be able to carry out a threat to kill.
Here's something else the judge said to Paul Henry:
"You can be charm personified, but if things don't suit you or go your way you resort to violence."Charm personified.
You do this, you know. You aid and abet them in their attempt to kill your kinfolk. Just as you aid and abet all those alien savages who murder, rape, rob, drug up and pimp in this country. Just as you aid and abet those who let them loose to run amok within our society.
Even now, after sixty years of ever-increasing lawlessness, after sixty years of mind-boggling political correctness stealing away our heritage and sharing it out amongst the Brit-loathing, third world hordes, you are still voting for those who made it happen. You are still voting for a world where a British judge can describe a gallows-worthy brute like this as 'charm personified.'
Vote for evil again and again and again and again and that's exactly what you'll get.
Oh yes, you do it alright.
You aid and abet the Paul Henrys.
On 13 November 2011, 50-year-old Desbert Welsh was stabbed in North London.
He died in hospital three days later.
His uncle, 84-year-old Ezekiel McCarthy, killed him.
In November 2012, McCarthy pleaded guilty to manslaughter. In December he was freed. The 4 December 2012 issue of The Mirror reported thus:
"A pensioner who killed his nephew after mistaking him for a burglar walked free from court after a judge took pity on him. Ezekiel McCarthy, 85, one of the oldest people to appear at the Old Bailey, was jailed for nine months. But the sentence was suspended for two years on condition that he is supervised during that time.
Judge Peter Beaumont, the Recorder of London, said it was extremely unlikely he would offend again... The Old Bailey heard McCarthy was confused when he plunged a knife into Desbert Welsh...Desbert and his uncle had been celebrating his birthday the previous evening and McCarthy's innebriated state was one reason put forward for his 'confusion.' After stabbing him and stamping on his head, McCarthy went round to a neighbour's house.
The pair had been drinking and celebrating McCarthy's birthday a few days earlier. They arrived at McCarthy's home in the early hours and in the morning, he stabbed Mr Welsh."
"This bloody man," he said. "I don't know how he got in my room."He later told police:
"I was defending myself."At one point, the judge said:
"You took the life of a wholly innocent man who had shown you nothing but friendship and support."It doesn't matter though, does it, your honour? If you're old, 'confused' and black, you can stab someone who has 'shown you nothing but friendship and support' and get away with it.
Thing is, ladies and gents, when we're 84 and 'confused', are we going stab anyone? When we find a bloke we don't know in our house, what are we going to do? Ask him what he's doing there? Tell him to leave? Have a heart attack?
I'll tell you what we're not going to do. We're not going to stab him. I know this for a fact because there's no record of an 84-year-old British bloke stabbing his nephew to death in the archives.
I'd be surprised if you could find anyone over seventy who'd thought it perfectly O.K. to stab 'a wholly innocent man who had shown you nothing but friendship and support', and then, in court, say they were 'confused.'
Over sixty even.
Whatever you do, ladies and gents, don't presume everyone's harmless just because their old.
On 27 March 2012, Majid Rehman was waiting in his taxi outside Cardiff central train station when he got into an argument with some railway workers.
He resolved the matter by firing up the engine, chasing after them, driving through a red light and knocking down eight people, two of whom had nothing at all to do with the dispute.
Judge Phillip Richards told him:
"You sent bodies flying in all directions, one being trapped under your car. Your intent was to cause them all serious harm.
It was intolerable behaviour in a civilised society."
Prosecutor Claire Wilks said:
"Six of the men were leaving the train station wearing high visibility orange suits as they walked away from the train station. Along the way some of the group began to argue with Rehman. Eventually the group left the area.
But it seems Rehman wouldn't let it be. He left the taxi rank and drove after the group... Rehman drove his taxi, and in a rage, mounted the pavement and collided with the group of eight men... It was a deliberate manouvre at some speed, knocking them down like a bowling ball knocking over pins in an alley.In court, Rehman was hardly repentant, saying:
Some of the men were more fortunate than others. Mark Underwood was trapped under the taxi and suffered significant burns to his back, legs and arms as he was wedged under the hot engine."
"No one drives at people for nothing. They assaulted me and it was in self defence... I got into my cab to drive home. I don't remember driving onto the pavement and I don't know why I did it."Sentencing him to fifteen years in prison, the judge said:
"This was an extremely serious crime which you committed in anger following what was a modest dispute between you and a group of men returning home from work on the railways...Got news for you judge, society was in a ruinous state decades back. Maybe not in the leafy suburbs and gated communities of the judiciary but the Rehmans have been at work in the council estates and high rise tenaments of old England, Scotland and Wales for more than fifty years now.
If a minor incident of a punch and some abuse is met with this kind of reaction then society is going to be reduced to ruin."
Never mind. At least you didn't let him off with a caution.
On 19 November 2011, a member of the public witnessed Christopher Haughton 'agitated,' and shouting 'God help me to kill my enemies' in the street.
When four officers arrived and attempted to calm him down, he threw bricks, masonry and 'tins of beans' at them, before biting PC Stephen Barker on the arm. He then entered a butcher's shop and threatened the staff, screaming:
"Give me a chopper! Give me a chopper!"
He grabbed a large knife and attacked the officers with this, causing significant injuries to all four.
Indeed, Constables Alistair Hinchliff, Thomas Harding and Andrew Robb needed surgery after the attack. Andy was stabbed twice in the leg, Alistair was stabbed in the face and arm and Tom had to have 9ins of intestine removed.
He would certainly have been killed were it not for his protective vest. Prosecutor Ed Brown QC said:
"The scene was a dreadful one, officers very badly injured, some critically so and blood everywhere from their injuries, with police and ambulance personnel doing what they could to give first aid to the officers before they were rushed to hospital."After he was finally subdued, Haughton spat mouthfuls of blood at the uninjured officers and claimed to be HIV positive, saying:
"I love giving women AIDS."He was also recorded as having said:
"Kill me, kill me, I want to die. I want to come back as Freddie Kruger."And:
"F*****g pigs, I hope you all die, and all your children die."He also hurled 'Caribbean insults' such as ‘bumbaclat’ and bit PC John Charlton on his way to the police station.
Six weeks prior to these events, on 9 October 2011, Haughton was in playing loud music in his bedsit when a neighbour asked him to turn it down. For this affront to his dignity, he pushed the complainant down the stairs.
Not satisfied with this, he went round to his neighbour's flat armed with a stick and threatened him. Subsequently, he tried to kick in the doors of all the bedsits in the building, causing £2,500 worth of damage.
Police were called and two officers arrived, identified themselves and asked him to open the door. Haughton swore at them and told them to go away.
They kicked the door open and were met by Haughton brandishing a broom handle as a weapon. He rushed at them, knocking one backwards and causing him to fall down the stairs.
After being sprayed with CS gas, he dropped the stick but began punching and biting the officers. WPC Vicky Vincent's trousers were ripped from waist to ankle and she was bitten badly on the leg. Drawing blood, Haughton repeatedly spat this into the face of WPC Alison Spruce, Vicky's fellow officer.
However, he was eventually restrained and taken to Brixton police station and charged. After appearing in court, HE WAS BAILED.
In December 2012, Haughton was found guilty of two counts of attempted murder and two of causing grievous bodily harm with intent.
He was also found guilty of Actual Bodily Harm in respect of WPC Vicky Vincent and common assault regarding WPC Alison Spruce, who was showered with Alison's blood when Haughton repeatedly spat at her.
Detained without limit of time by Judge Peter Beaumont, the Recorder of London, he was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia and sent to Broadmoor.
Bailed to do what he did a month later. Even though he had pushed a neighbour down the stairs, caused a good deal of damage to property and attacked three police officers, two of whom were female.
Such was life in Airstrip 1 in the year 2011.
PC Alistair Hinchcliff told the court:
"It was perhaps only a matter of very good fortune that some of the police officers escaped with their lives."On the other hand, Alistair, it is, perhaps, a matter of very bad fortune that the British people continue to vote for politicians who would rather put them and their constabulary guardians at terrible risk than deal appropriately with murderous savages like Haughton.
On 7 January 2012, at a birthday party being held for their mother, four-year-old twins Holly and Ella Smith and Jordan, two, were killed in a fire at their home in Freckleton, Lancashire.
Their 19-year-old brother, Reece, also died when he went back into the house to try and save them.
Reece's father, Martin, said of Reece:
"He was very close to his brothers and sisters and thought the world of them.After the police determined that the blaze was started deliberately in a bedroom wardrobe, a friend of Reece, 18-year-old, Dyson Allen, who attended the memorial service, was arrested shortly afterwards.
He thought about everybody else before himself and I am not surprised that he went back in to try and save them. I'm so proud of him."
Allen had previously put a tribute to the dead on a Facebook page. (Click on the image to enlarge)
Charged with four counts of murder, Dyson's trial will begin on 4 June 2013.
Why, one wonders, must we wait so long for justice to prevail?
"Though the mills of God grind slowly, yet they grind exceeding small?"Or 'a good day (seventeen months) to bury bad news?'
On 29 December 2011, 75-year-old Maria Morrison was stabbed repeatedly by a complete stranger as she waited for a bus.
David Walters, a 23-year-old, violent career criminal, wanted to 'do some damage to someone' after he had a tiff in cyberspace. 'Die, Die! I'll Kill You,' he screamed as he repeatedly plunged a 10in kitchen knife into Maria's body.
He then ran off, spitting onto the pavement as he did so.
This was to prove his undoing. Officers watching CCTV of the attack went to the spot where he spat and took a DNA sample.
Miraculously, Maria survived. She said:
"I sat at the bus stop and I saw the man who looked very angry. He was waving the knife around and came towards me... I thought it was the end, he kept screaming ‘die, die, die', it happened so quick, within two minutes...
When he pushed me against a fence, I thought that was the end of it. I closed my eyes and tried to kick him... I felt a strength I didn't know I had. I pushed the knife away from my neck...In shock and bleeding heavily from multiple stab wounds, Maria got a passing car to stop and the emergency services were called.
He seemed much bigger and stronger (Walters is a bodybuilder) than me... I thought I was going but my guardian angel must have been there to help me... I have no idea why he attacked me... It was a moment of madness and he wanted to do damage...
I cannot do the things I used to enjoy doing because of the injury to my hand, like painting, sewing and knitting. It's affected me a lot."
She spent nine days in hospital.
Passing sentence Judge Andrew Gilbart QC told Walters:
"There is a significant and indeed substantial risk of further offending which could cause serious harm to members of the public... Your head was filled with your obsessive jealousy and you chose to set upon this entirely innocent lady... This court pays tribute to her and the spirit displayed by a very brave woman."Although the judge jailed Walters for life, he may be released after serving as little as seven years.
Perhaps, in seven years' time, the would-be little-old-lady killer will be earning a decent living 'mentoring' the little-old-lady-killers of the future? Yeah. The powers-that-be do love to parade a reformed savage before the rest of us when he's 'doing good work in the community,' don't they?
Even though, upon close inspection, it rarely seems to do any good.
On 1 January 2012, 29-year-old Oliver Smith-Daye was 'subjected to a brutal and sustained assault' in Clacton-on-Sea, Essex.
He died in hospital on the same day.
Oliver and his friend, Mark Fletcher, had been at a party to celebrate the New Year. After they had done some tidying up in the early hours, they left the building but, once outside, Oliver realised he'd left his keys indoors.
He went back to get them, knocked on the door and shouted, 'come on wake up' through the letterbox.
At that point, next door neighbour Elisha Francois appeared at the window and accused him of waking her child.
Moments later she came out and began attacking Oliver, followed quickly by her boyfriend, Charlie Jacobs. Both of them repeatedly 'struck, stamped on and repeatedly punched' him.
When Mark returned from making a phone call, Oliver said:
"My neck, I've broken my neck. I can't believe they've hit me like that".After the case, Dettective Chief Inspector Mark Hall said Oliver had gone out 'to enjoy a few drinks, share some laughs and look forward to 2012.' He added:
"These two individuals, both of whom had a history of violent offending, had spent the evening drinking alcohol and taking cocaine...
A trivial encounter resulted in a wholly unnecessary, ferocious and cowardly attack by these two defendants, who together viciously punched and kicked Oliver, before leaving him for dead...
Oliver’s killers... sought to place the blame on Oliver, failed to accept responsibility for their actions, showed no remorse and sought at every opportunity to lie their way out of this case."
Jacobs was found guilty of murder and sentenced to a minimum of fifteen and a half years.
Francois was convicted of manslaughter and jailed for six years only.
Six for the t*at who started it, fifteen for the t*at who finished it.
I'd have hanged them both.
On 17 December 2011, father-of-four Malcolm Anderson died when his car was involved in an accident on the M6 caused by illegal immigrant, Iqbal Singh.
Malcolm’s wife Deborah and son Jason were also badly hurt.
Singh admitted causing death by careless driving and faced a maximum five-year jail term. But Judge Michael Cullum reduced the sentence to credit him for his early guilty plea.
After an appeal was lodged for an increase of the sentence. Madhu Rai, Crown Advocate for the West Midlands CPS, said:
“The judge passed an immediate sentence of imprisonment to correctly reflect the defendant’s loss of control of his van due to him momentarily falling asleep.The term of his imprisonment was increased to take into account the serious injuries caused to other family members... and the fact the defendant gave false details to conceal his immigration status and him having no driving documents...
In the circumstances the Crown Prosecution Service will not be appealing the sentence.”Malcolm’s daughter, Emma, said:
“If the authorities had done their job my father would still be here for us. There is no end to our nightmare. How are we supposed to get on with our lives knowing this man will be freed within a few months?Malcolm's widow, Deborah, said:
He will be able to appeal if he is deported, but we can’t appeal against the pathetic sentence.”
"Armed robbers sometimes get life because they use weapons. The van driven by Singh was the weapon used to kill my husband."Weapons? Those we vote for are at war with us, Deborah. The immigrant is their footsoldier.
Didn't they tell you?
Singh will be deported to India at the end of his jail term.
On 6 August 2012, Sam Harding came off his bicycle in Holloway Road, north London, and was crushed by the following bus.
Kenan Aydogdu had opened his car door just as Sam was passing. The windows of his car had been coated with a dark plastic film (by him) which reduced visibility in and out of the car to 17%.
Aydogdu, who admitted opening the door without using his mirror, told police he thought Sam had lost control.
He was found not guilty of any crime.
Sam's father, Keith, said:
"Obviously the jury didn't think it was serious enough to convict him for manslaughter. The law needs to find something that is commensurate."London Assembly member, Jenny Jones, said:
"Cyclists being killed or seriously injured by drivers opening their car doors is remarkably common, yet it has received very little attention from the police or the mayor.
The Met Police and the mayor need to urgently launch a major awareness campaign and make clear that car dooring will be automatically prosecuted."The judge, Mr Justice Saunders, told the jury:
"This is a case where there are no winners. Everyone is a loser."An immigrant who kills an Englishman and gets away with it is a loser?
Better not say that to Sam's dad, your honour.
On 28 May 2011, the body of 27-year-old Emma Ewart was found dumped in a canal in Bedworth, Coventry.
She had been killed two days earlier by 43-year-old taxi driver, Mazhar Rashid.
Although he denied killing Emma, he admitted disposing of her body. In court, he said he had spent the previous night with her and that when he awoke the following morning, she was dead. At which point he decided to dispose of her body in the canal instead of informing the authorities.
As you do.
A post-mortem could not determine how Emma died, but, after the jury concluded Rashid was responsible for ending her life, Judge Sir Michael Astle said this:
"Mr Rashid took advantage of a vulnerable young woman for his own sexual purposes and I have little doubt in my mind that he did this to hide from a community and family who would have condemned him."
Rashid was jailed for 17 years.
In the early hours of 28 October 2011, 36-year-old Robert Holland was killed in Lower Parliament Street, London.
On 17 February 2012, former doorman and cage fighter Liam Rockley was found guilty of Robert’s manslaughter.
On the night of Robert’s death, despite being told by his friends ‘not to get into any trouble,’ Rockley approached the group Robert was with and got him in a bear hug. When he tried to fight back, Rockley punched him.
That single punch killed Robert Holland.
Detective Chief Inspector Kate Meynell said:
"Robert Holland’s death is a stark illustration of how a single punch can have such devastating consequences… As has been proven here, it can ultimately cost a life.After Judge John Milmo jailed Rockley for just three-and-a-half years, Robert’s mother, Therese, said:
The medical evidence confirms also that it was the impact of the punch itself that killed Robert, and not the subsequent contact with the ground.
Rockley had experience of cage fighting and clearly knew he was capable of delivering a blow that would cause his victim injury.”
"His lenient sentence is a total disgrace. We were told that if he hadn't handed himself in and pleaded guilty he would have got five to seven years. Three-and-a-half years is a slap in the face…Teach your children to hate, Therese. Teach them to hate those who killed him. Teach them to hate the politicans who, for more than sixty now, have beckoned in the lawless immigrant and nurtured their lawless offspring. As I have been saying, over and over again for more than twenty years now, they are at war with us.
If that bloke had gone out and done armed robbery he would have got longer. He wouldn't have even had to kill someone. Monetary things are more important than people's lives. It's wrong…
I want to get the law changed and get the sentencing for one-punch manslaughter increased because it's happening all too often…
My grandson is 10 and at Christmas he said he didn't want any presents. He just wanted Robert back. The children absolutely worshipped him."
The Rockleys are their footsoldiers.
You, Robert, his wife, children and all those who loved him, are their enemies.
On 23 April 2010, 17-year-old Charlie Wright was murdered in Greenwich, South London.
On 18 January 2012, the Metropolitan Police reported thus:
"Detectives investigating the murder of a 17 year old student in Greenwich in April 2010 are offering a reward of up to £20,000 for help.
The substantial amount is on offer for information leading to the identification, arrest and prosecution of the person or people responsible for the murder of Charlie Wright (21/1/93) from Eltham.
Police were called at 02:05hrs on Friday 23 April 2010 to reports of a seriously injured male at a house in Park Mews, Calvert Road SE10.
Officers and the London Ambulance Service attended, though the teenager was pronounced dead at the scene.
A post-mortem gave cause of death as gunshot wound to the face.
Witnesses reported seeing a group of four to five young black men run from the scene in Park Mews towards Woolwich Road shortly after the shooting."
21 months after Charlie was killed the Metropolitan Police finally told us that his killers were black.
They had never bothered to mention the fact before.
Not as interested in catching criminals as they used to be are they?
The cops appear to be rather more concerned with maintaining the politically correct rules laid down by an establishment at war with the Charlie Wrights.
Nevertheless, anyone with information should call the incident room on 020 8721 4906 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
On Sunday 28 August 2011, Melanie Boocock, allegedly, racially abused Junaid Azad as she and Jack Carter left Melanie’s house.
Allegedly. If this occurred the way the courts said it did it may have had something to do with a fact that a group of Asians were gathered in close proximity to Melanie’s door.
Basharat Hussain, allegedly, told her to shut up when she ‘racially abused’ Azad. At which point, allegedly, Melanie threw a punch at him. Azad stepped in, followed, so we are told, by the Asian ‘group.’
Jack Carter, who was watching all of this, had not involved himself. Nevertheless, one member of the group of Asian men, Mohammed Nazakat AlamAzad, decided to punch him anyway. In fact, he didn’t just punch him, he ‘ran over’ to where Jack was watching and punched him. This is not alleged. This actually happened.
Jack died as result of the punch. Or perhaps it wasn’t the punch that killed him. Perhaps the punch merely laid him out. Perhaps Nisar Shah killed him.
Shah, too, had been watching the proceedings (from the safety of his own home). When he saw Jack fall to the ground, however, he emerged and stood upon his head.
Anyway, Jack was taken to Dewsbury and District Hospital with and died three days later. Subsequently, Alam and Shah were charged with murder.
In court, Julian Goose QC, for Alam, said there had been a lot of racial hostility and the consequences were wholly unintended.
So that’s alright then.
On 5 January 2012, Judge Peter Collier QC, said he accepted Alam had been ‘provoked.’
Provoked? By a guy who was stood watching? A guy who wasn’t involving himself?
The judge didn’t elaborate. After Nazakam Alam’s guilty plea to manslaughter was accepted, the murder charge was dropped and the judge who thought he’d been provoked jailed him for just 21 months!
What do you think of that, eh?
Jack’s sister, Amanda Athey, said:
“We are shocked. This is appalling. He could soon be walking the streets… I know it was one punch… but in my 44 years I have never thrown a punch at anybody. But that bloke did, and because of that punch Jack died. It’s an insult to me, my family and to Jack.”It sure is, Amanda, but they’re not just taking the p***, you know. They’re at war with us. That war is being waged by those you vote for and the creatures in the shadows who own them. You know, the bankers, the multinational corporation owners, all the elite types who want everything globalised.
The Alams are the footsoldiers of these global warmongers. They’re here to see off the likes of Jack Carter. You know, the innocent bystanders?
Could’ve been you, ladies and gentleman. Could’ve been your son, your daughter, your best friend.
And, if the ‘creatures in the shadows’ get their way, some day soon it will be.
PS. You remember Nisar Shah, the bloke that stood on Jack’s head? Well, the murder charge against him was dropped as well. Only he wasn’t even done for manslaughter.
He ended up with Actual Bodily Harm and got off with a suspended sentence!
PPS. Not only are there are no images of those who ended Jack Carter's life on the internet, not one national newspaper or television station has ever reported on this crime.
On 6 September 2012, the body of 41-year-old Charlotte ’Charlie’ Smith was found at her home in Ladderedge, Leek in Staffordshire.
It is thought she was killed three days earlier.
A police spokesman said:
“The cause of death has been established as head and facial injuries believed to have been caused by a blunt instrument.”A friend and former neighbour said:
“Charlie was a fun loving, confident and beautiful woman who made a difference to anyone she met. She would always be there to help if you needed her to. It is absolutely devastating. My thoughts are with her family.”Charlie’s husband, Devendra Singh, was arrested and charged with her murder.
He denies killing his wife.
On 12 December 2000, 19-year-old Rachel Manning’s body was found on Woburn Golf Club in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire.
Two days before her death someone had strangled her and smashed in her face with a blunt instrument.
Rachel’s boyfriend, Barri White was convicted of her murder and jailed in 2002. His cousin, Keith Hyatt, was jailed for perverting the course of justice.
However, a campaign then began to have their convictions quashed, and Dr Peter Bull, ‘the father of geo-science forensics’, labelled the evidence that had seen them imprisoned as 'totally implausible' on a 2005 edition of the Rough Justice programme.
After a retrial, Barri finally walked free after serving six years in jail for a crime he didn’t commit. Keith had been released three and a half years before.
On 7 December 2011, a Bangladeshi waiter by the name of Shahidul Ahmed was arrested and charged with Rachel’s murder.
In November 2012, Ahmed appeared at the Old Bailey by video link and, through an interpreter, entered a plea of not guilty. On 16 January 2013, more than twelve years after Rachel Manning was murdered, the trial of the man who, alegedly, killed her finally began.
The court heard that Ahmed had sold his car just six days after her body was found and a hair linked to him had been recovered from the hot pants she was wearing at the time of her death.
Rachel’s blood and traces of his DNA were also found on the car steering lock believed to be the murder weapon. This device was discovered by the road ‘on the direct route between the spot where the body was hidden and Shahidul Ahmed's home’.
Ahmed had come to police attention in May 2010 when he was arrested for an unrelated matter. It was at this point officers matched his DNA to the murder.
Prosecutor Ben Gumpert said:
"New scientific evidence has now come to light. It implicates Shahidul Ahmed…Open and shut? In a PC age, where the immigrant can do no wrong and an innocent British lad spend six years behind bars on the flimsiest of evidence, don’t count on it.
It seems likely that the impulse to attack her would have been a sexual one. Whether he always intended to kill her, or only did so because she was not willing to comply with his demands is unknown.”
I wrote the above three months before the jury failed to reach a verdict on Shahidul Ahmed's guilt or innocence.
The prosecution has asked for a retrial.
On 2 August 2012, the body of 50-year-old Carole Waugh was found inside a car in a lock-up garage in New Malden, south west London.
She had been stabbed to death.
Carol, a wealthy oil executive, was reported missing by her family on 7 May 2012, having disappeared from her Marylebone home in April.
Rakesh Bhayani and Nicholas Kutner were subsequently charged with murdering her.
On 28 November 2012, The Brent & Kilburn Times reported thus:
"Rakesh Bhayani, 40, of Chamberlayne Avenue, has been charged, alongside Nicholas Kutner, 47, of no fixed address, of stabbing the milionairess Carole Waugh to death between April and August this year, and plundering hundreds of thousands of pounds from her bank account.On 31 August 2012, 19-year-old Nathan Somers was found dead on a path in Beacon Hill Conservation Park, Newark.
Bhayani and Kutner are also accused of applying for an American Express card and a First Direct Account in Ms Waugh’s name, as well as a bridging loan on her central London flat.
Kutner is said to have carried out three further frauds by posing as Ms Waugh’s brother Christopher in an attempt to let and sell her two bedroom flat."
After a fight at a birthday party, he had been stabbed once, the blow penetrating his heart.
Jemelle Rodney, Reuben Edwards and a 16-year-old who could not be named for legal reasons were later charged with his murder.
An 18-year-old and a 17-year-old remain on bail pending further enquiries.
On 6 May 2011, 42-year-old Wayne Stockdale was shot whilst riding his bike in Bromley-by-Bow.
He died four days later in the Royal London Hospital.
On 4 May 2012, the BBC reported thus:
"A reward of up to £20,000 has been offered for information on the murder of a man who was shot in the head while riding his bicycle a year ago.Detective Chief Inspector John Crossley said:
Two masked men opened fire on Wayne Stockdale on 6 May at the junction of Knapp Road and Rounton Road, Tower Hamlets, east London...
Postmortem tests gave the cause of death as a gunshot wound to the head.
The two suspects, described as BLACK or ASIAN males, made off towards Knapp Road and got into a car."
"We have always maintained that Wayne was not the intended target for this incident, which saw shots fired both at him and into the street. It's now a year since the murder took place and we hope the offer of a reward will encourage people to come forward with information."The Chief Inspector got his wish. Within three months of the reward being offered officers from Operation Trident had arrested three men.
Once upon a time it didn't take reward money to stimulate those who might know something into passing it on to the police.
Now it does.
As regards the unintended target thing. Well, it sounds better than ethnic gunslingers taking pot shots at random Whitey for a bit of a laugh, doesn't it?
On 27 June 2012, 20-year-old university student, Tom Ridgway, was cycling along a street in Solihull when he was struck by a Toyota Previa.
After the collision, taxi driver, Ichhapal Bhamra, sped down the street for 90 metres and smashed into several traffic signs before bbeing brought to a halt when his car collided with a tree.
Tom, who was lying on top of its bonnet at the time, died in hospital later that day.
For some reason, the cops were unable to determine the cause of the crash and, therefore, couldn't confirm whether Tom's death was caused by the initial collision or the subsequent 90-metre sign and tree-smashing journey. Bhamra was, thus, charged with driving without due care and attention only. For which crime he got three points on his licence and a fine of £35.00.
Tom's mother Liz said:
"It's just awful... It's ruined our lives and taken Tom's... Neither the charge nor the sentence reflect the enormous tragedy of a young man's death when he was simply cycling along next to the pavement."British Cycling Policy and Legal Affairs Director Martin Gibbs added:
“Once again the justice system has failed us. Mr Bhamra could provide no explanation of why he didn’t see Tom Ridgway and continued to drive 90m with him on the bonnet before crashing into a tree. There is no reasonable conclusion other than that Bhamra’s driving caused Tom’s death and the CPS has failed to bring the appropriate charge.”Appropriate. There's a word. What would an appropriate word be for the war being waged against us by the global establishment and their immigrant shocktroops?
Yeah. Genocide would be appropriate. More appropriate than £35.00 anyway.
On 5 November 2012, two policemen spotted a middle-aged woman shouting ’get them, get them’ and pursuing two teenagers through the streets of Camden in London.
They gave chase and radioed for help.
Responding to the call, 30-year-old Detective Constable Adele Cashman and her colleague, who were in a police car nearby, sped to the scene and chased after one of the teenagers.
Moments later Adele collapsed. She died in the Royal Free Hospital 90 minutes later.
Two 17-year-olds were, subsequently, arrested and a smartphone recovered.
In court, we were told that both youths were at six form college and ‘hope to go on to university.’
One of them said:
“I am sorry for committing a crime. Usually I am not the kind of person who would commit a crime, I just got caught up in the atmosphere.”Neither teenager apologised for causing Adele Cashman’s death.
The pair, whose ethnicity was not given, were sentenced to a six month referral order and instructed to pay costs of £42.50 each.
Not much for a policewoman’s life, was it.
On 24 March 2012, 65-year-old William Mapstone was badly injured when his lorry was in collision with a stationary coach on the M5 near Birmingham.
He died in hospital a little while later.
Liaquat Ali was also killed and 39 other people were injured.
On 12 February 2013, The Daily Mail reported thus:
"Jasminder Singh Dhesi had been drinking high-strength lager hours before his unroadworthy coach broke down three times in heavy fog. He parked it in the slow lane of the southbound carriageway on the M5...Commenting after the case, Rukshsana Mohammed, Senior Crown Prosecutor from West Midlands Crown Prosecution Service, said:
During today’s sentencing hearing, it emerged that Dhesi was fined for drink-driving 12 years ago after falling asleep and crashing a bus into another vehicle...
Prosecutor Neil Bannister told the court the single-decker coach had twice pulled over onto the hard shoulder of the M5 due to a fuel supply problem. Despite travelling for less than a mile after joining the M5 near Halesowen, the 19-year-old coach broke down for a third time near a footbridge on a stretch of carriageway with no hard shoulder...
Dozens of workers travelling on the coach were injured, including a 29-year-old man who remains in hospital with severe neurological injuries."
"Jasminder Dhesi was an experienced driver... It was his duty to ensure that the vehicle he was using was roadworthy and in a suitable condition to be used on the public road network...
Any prudent driver would have been aware that to continue driving a faulty vehicle onto the motorway was dangerous and instead they should have stopped and sought assistance. However, Dhesi made a grave decision to continue the journey."Passing sentence, Judge Michael Chambers QC expressed concern that Dhesi had shown no remorse for his actions. He added:
"Travelling on the motorway as you did clearly caused a substantial risk to other road users and also the passengers on your bus... They were vulnerable. What happened in my judgement was entirely foreseeable and avoidable...The judge then jailed Desai for six years.
The aggravating features are the degree of risk that you created, having regard to the road conditions and the size of your vehicle, and that two deaths have been caused. Both deaths arose out of your dangerous driving.
There is also an aggravating feature in that you were driving under the influence of alcohol."
On 24 August 2012, 59-year-old Stephen Phillips was murdered outside his home in rural Thailand, 8 days after changing his will in favour of his 29-year-old Thai wife.
On 22 September 2012, The Daily Mail reported thus:
"Stephen Phillips, 59, from Torquay, Devon, was shot dead last month as he rode his Honda motorbike near his home in the remote village of Baan Phai, about 250 miles north-east of Bangkok.""Mr Phillips' 29-year-old wife Wilaiwan, and two Thai men, one believed to be her Thai-Chinese lover, have been charged by police with conspiracy to murder. Officers think the former Network Rail supervisor may have unwittingly given his wife the money to pay for his own murder.
The hitmen shot Mr Phillips in the abdomen and both legs before a final bullet was fired at his head...A friend of his 81-yr-old mother in Manchester said:
It is believed Mr Phillips had recently taken out a £200,000 life insurance policy and almost £12,000 had been withdrawn from his bank account in the weeks leading up to the shooting...
Wilaiwan, whom Mr Phillips met on the internet, has denied any involvement in her husband's death... However, officers became suspicious of her behaviour at Mr Phillips' funeral, where she was said to be 'inappropriately dressed' for a cremation...
Friends who lived near Mr Phillips in Thailand said he was nicknamed 'the Wounded Buffalo' because of his 'gullible and naive' nature...
Mr Phillips moved to the South-East Asian country after taking early retirement and got married two and a half years ago in a Buddhist ceremony."
"He was back in the UK earlier this year and said he was not happy with his marriage. He had £12,000 in one bank account which he reported recently had been reduced to £300 by his wife. He was a quiet unassuming person. Apart from his marriage he loved the life in Thailand."A police spokesman said:
"The driver has confessed and we know the identify of the gunmen."The Thai police think Stephen's wife had it in mind to murder her husband's mother as well. She had invited her to her husband's funeral in Thailand.
A senior Thai detective said:
"That may not have been safe for the old woman. Wilaiwan stood to inherit the apartment she was living in on her death."And the moral of this story is?
Stick to your own, lads. The globalisation scam will get you killed.
On 26 April 2011, 41-year-old Matthew Ellis, (no photograph) a man with 'a significant mental illness' was viciously attacked by a gang of Asians in Bradford.
On 21 August 2012, Majid Ali, Syed Amar Shah and Mubashaer Ali were found guilty of the attack upon Matthew and imprisoned.
On 22 August 2012, The Telegraph and Argus reported thus:
"Three gang members who took part in a mob attack on a vulnerable man, fracturing his skull, have been given custodial sentences totalling almost 15 years.
Majid Ali, 20, Syed Amar Shah, 18, and 16-year-old Mubashaer Ali were among a group of yobs who hurled stones and bricks at Matthew Ellis.
Mr Ellis needed brain surgery after he was hit on the head with a rock. He also suffered a fractured arm... After being hit by the stones, Mr Ellis was then struck on the arm with his own metal detector by Shah...
Mr Ellis was detained in hospital for four days during which his skull was opened up and staples inserted. He was physically and psychologically scarred and also had a metal plate inserted in his arm."Describing the attack as 'grave, serious, horrendous and unpleasant,' Judge Jonathan Rose said:
“It is only a matter of good fortune you were not facing a charge, at the very least, of manslaughter because there was every chance Matthew Ellis could have been killed by one or more of the rocks thrown at him with great force, lobbed through the air and raining down upon him...
It was mob violence against a wholly innnocent and vulnerable man, without any justification or mitigation, and represents an affront to society, to decent law-abiding citizens.”Mubashaer Ali was sentenced to two and a half years’ detention. Shah got six years. Judge Rose said of him:
“I regard you as a vicious and violent young man.”
Majid Ali, who told a probation officer that race was a factor behind the offence, was also jailed for six years.
Oh yes, contrary to what the establishment says, most of the so-called racism that occurs in Britain today, particularly the agressive kind, is aimed at us.
