Much has been made of the deaths of three young Muslim males in the rioting in Birmingham, Haroon Jahan, Shahzad Ali and Abdul Musavir were protecting property, residents say though details of who drove the car aren’t known yet, though suspected (Put it this way if they were white we’d probably have it trumpeted throughout the media). The father of one of the young men has also been on the media praising their actions and calling for calm and not retribution, all very noteworthy and quite honourable and pretty much front page news in the MSM wherever you read it.
Richard Mannington Bowes however it seems has been almost forgotten by the media in their quest to be multicultural and integrational and forget just who exactly was rioting.
A 68-year-old man who was critically injured while he tried to stamp out a fire during riots in west London has died, Scotland Yard says.
Richard Mannington Bowes suffered head injuries in an attack in Ealing on Monday night and was left in a coma.
A 22-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder.
Police have said four other deaths – a man found shot in a car in Croydon and three men hit by a car in Birmingham – may be linked to the recent disorder.
No media circus, no mass meetings between the Bishop of wherever and the local community just the sad death of a pensioner beaten to death by rioters who to me appears to have been the wrong colour to get the attention of the media as some sort of martyr.
It of course gets worse
The man beaten and robbed by thugs during the London riots died in hospital late last night as it emerged he had suffered at the hands of yobs for years.
And as detectives today questioned a 22-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder, it has emerged Mr Mannington Bowes was a civic-minded man of old fashioned values who had been forced to confront yobs on his own doorstep for years.
The reclusive former accountant had long been tormented by thugs who urinated on his front door and threw litter outside his home, according to friends and neighbours.
However, his courage and habit of never walking away from something he considered wrong eventually cost him his life.
Not only a hero, but a man of conscience too. RIP Richard Mannington Bowes, some wont forget you even if you’re the wrong religion and the wrong colour to really get media attention.
