A couple who have lost three sons in separate killings have voiced their despair over youth violence in London.
“These three boys were all innocent souls, none of them had anything to do with gangs,” said Linda. “Our family has never had any issues with police or social services. I was a teacher and always taught my children the value of education. I don’t understand why this keeps happening to us. We were just minding our own business. Why can’t we have peace? Why couldn’t our children be allowed to grow up like other children?”
Because other people’s children have been allowed to do as they please, because to stop them is considered ‘racism’. That’s the simple truth of it.
David was with two of his brothers, Jonathan, 25 and Taiye, 34, when he was killed. The three men charged with aggravated burglary have been named as Francis Appiagyei, 27, Nathan Harewood, 27, and Khalil Rehman, 26.
It’s your own ‘community’ doing the killing, as can be seen from the names.
In February 2013, Joseph was killed as he sat in a car in Hackney, east London, with his twin, Jonathan, and older brother David. Jonathan and David were injured in the shooting.
A trial of three men suspected of his murder collapsed in 2015. A coroner ruled that Joseph had been unlawfully killed.
During the inquest it was alleged that a masked gunman was told by an accomplice to “waste them anyway” when the three brothers said they were not from the estate that their attackers had suspected.
This isn’t something the nebulous ‘authorities’ can prevent. They aren’t the ones organising postcode gangs. Stop talking to people who know nothing of these areas, thankfully, and start talking to your neighbours.
In 1994 the family’s oldest son, Trevor, was stabbed by a group of five men in Hackney.
No names this time. But I doubt they’d be very different.
Stafford Scott, a community activist who has known the Monervilles since the death of Trevor in 1994, said the latest killing had left him “shocked, stunned and saddened”.
It shouldn’t, should it? You’re usually to be found working on excuses for these savages. Your income clearly depends on it!
Referring to the film Saving Private Ryan, in which the US government sends men to save Pte James Ryan after three of his brothers are killed in the second world war, Scott said: “We are allegedly not at war in this country but I ask our government to go all out in the name of this family to stop any other family experiencing this kind of suffering.”
Stop begging for help from ‘the government’ and start telling your ‘community’ to act like something other than mindless savages.
The family made a 15-page complaint to the Metropolitan police documenting their concerns over the investigation into Joseph’s killing. They allege failings of police surveillance and intelligence before the death and failures in the handling of the key witness and the disclosure of evidence.
Ah. Here we see why the progressive press is taking this up – another opportunity to soak the taxpayer by demanding compensation.
