London Stabbing

I've been reading about the sad story of Jaylen Moodie, stabbed after being knocked off his moped (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-46821783). I feel for his family and how hard it must be to come to terms with.

But there is one question no one seems to be asking. Jaylen was knocked off his moped on a public road in Leyton. Jaylen is said to have been 14. In the UK don't you have to be 16 to ride a moped on a public road? If so he was riding without license or insurance, which doesn't fit with the "he was a blameless angel" picture which is being painted.

PDR1, it is an axiom that all youngsters who are unfortunately killed in Britain are all "Angels" with impeccable behaviour, helping old ladies across the street and carrying their shopping bags at every opportunity.

The Daily Mail doesn't seem to subscribe to that view.

Jayden had recently been photographed clutching bundles of £20 and £50 notes, making 'gang signs' on his moped and calling himself a ‘trapper boy’ - street parlance for drug courier

Poor kid.

So basically it was a gang/drugs related killing.

Play with fire....

On the 10pm main news last night, there was a segment that showed the boy's family holding a press conference, describing him in glowing terms, yet completely ignoring the glaring facts revealed in the thread above. How did his family not know that their 14yr old was riding around on a powerful 'scooter', or were keeping an eye on his social-media life, where he was showing the world his doings ? He was assassinated by bigger fish, Piranhas if you will....A sad story, but just the way of things within certain segments of the population in London.

Don't worry, someone will be along to pour scorn on the Mail for simply reposting photos the poor victim had knowing posted onto public forums....

Reminds me of news reports during the Northern Ireland troubles, woman stood at her garden gate, hair in rollers, arms folded claiming "my boy's a good boy, doesn't do shooting and bombing" in a broad Belfast accent!

It appears that most of the victims of knife crime in London, at the moment, are black (mostly) men stabbed or shot by other black men. This is an unpleasant and inconvenient truth.

This is not a racist comment. There are plenty of abhorrent crimes committed by white people and other races, but the current spate of murders are mostly gang/drug related. The black community must acknowledge this, and look to exposing its rotten apples.

I used to chat with a mate, retired major in the paras (now sadly gone) and he used to joke about how every soldier killed in Iraq, Afghanistan etc was a good guy, well liked by all his mates and destined for great things. As he said, his CO could hardly say the bloke was a complete waste of space, a skiver, always in trouble and no loss to the regiment, even if that were the case.

Like the funeral mass of a known scumbag, disliked by many. The priest, wanting to follow tradition asked if anyone wanted to get up and say something nice about the deceased. No-one volunteered, so the priest implored "surely there's something nice someone can say about the deceased ???" A nervous man stood up and mumbled "well.....he was nicer than his brothers"

No sympathy I am afraid, took the easy life path and paid the consequences, at 14 he should have been at home with his parents... it's about time knife crime is recognised with the same sentences as gun crime.

"......at 14 he should have been....". At 14 his parents should have been keeping a close eye on him. How many more of mummy's little angels will end up on a mortuary slab?

Interesting that The Black community are more than happy to tell us that Black Youths are the most likely people to be murdered in London......if that is the case (it is), then as these are almost always black on black gang killings would it not also be correct to say that Black Youths are the most likely to Murder people in London?
But whatever you do Officer, do not prioritise Stop and Search on that basis.

The reason that isn't done is that criminals would then have no incentive not to get guns.

This exact point was raised by journalist, Melanie Phillips, in Question Time last night - that there has been a significant increase in knife violence/deaths since the police were told to ease back on the ‘racist’ stop and search. She was howled down most emphatically by comedian and fellow panellist, Nish Kumar.

As Daddy is in the Caribbean having served his time for drug related crimecrime, would he have been better off with Daddy?

Probably as there is no racism question there and plenty of clips around the ear.
