Another shocking and senseless murder, another family devastated, another group of uncaring, remorseless teenagers found guilty.
“A 15-year-old boy has been found guilty of murder after he kicked a woman to death because she was a Goth.”
Sophie Lancaster was just 20 years old when she was brutally kicked to death. Unfortunately this is not an isolated incident, it is just another example of the youth of Britain showing no respect for human life. Gary Newlove was killed just a couple of months ago, also by a gang of youths and, as anyone who has ever walked the streets after dark know, these types of callous, aggressive and cowardly youths are everywhere.
Sophie Lancaster was killed trying to protect her boyfriend, which of course makes it all the upsetting for her boyfriend, who survived the incident. This gang initially set upon him and having knocked him unconscious, needed another innocent on which to vent their hate and malevolence. The cowardly scum waited until Sophie was kneeling down, cradling her boyfriend’s head before turning on her and stamping on her head.
Sophie Lancaster – Shortly before she died.
Pathetic Herbert was apparently on a high after taking a 16 year old girl’s virginity in the park earlier in the night. With any luck the Judge will ensure that the only sexual activity Herbert will take part in before middle age will be with a hairy Neanderthal named Bubba.
Brendan Harris and Ryan Herbert showed absolutely no remorse for what they had done, in fact it wasn’t even the first time. Just four months earlier they carried out a similar attack on a 16 year old boy in the same park. As usual the system failed, they were given community service orders, which they were both serving when they murdered Sophie Lancaster. As usual it takes someone to die before the justice system start to believe that these sort of people are truly evil.
The most worrying aspect of this is not the feral youths, we have in Britain sadly become used to such incidents, but the behaviour of the louts parents. According to police:
“Harris’s mother was laughing all through the proceedings of this murder case.”
So Brendan Harris’ mother thought that this was amusing. I hope her brute of a son is murdered whilst serving his time. I doubt she’ll find the loss of her own child so amusing. Then again from the sounds of her I am sure that she has plenty more.
Det Supt Mick Gradwell hit the nail on the head with his statement after the case.
“The only thing these lads think they have done wrong is to be caught. It was almost as though they were laughing and joking about what they had done.”
He went on to blame the parents saying:
“It’s a ridiculous state of affairs. Parents have got to take much more responsibility for their offspring. Regrettably, there is an element of youth who seem to find thrills in meting out an extreme level of violence. Bacup is a small town, but this is not just happening in Bacup. It is happening all over Britain.”
Quite right, this problem has already reached epidemic proportions. In Northumberland alone the number of murderers under 17 years old has tripled in just five years. Clearly the children and their parents are not getting the message.
Scum like this should be hanged
They need to learn that their actions have consequences and the parents need to learn that unless they rein in their kids, they’ll loose them, permanently. I don’t mean that they should be taken into care, they should be hung.
Already at 15 and 16 years old they have shown that they cannot be rehabilitated. They have shown no remorse for their cowardly actions. Harris and his slapper of a mother were even joking with each other during the police interview. Once upon a time in Britain she’d now be an outcast, forever stigmatised by the actions of her son. Today though, she’s probably a hero on her estate. The families of these murderers are just as sick as they are, mocking poor Sophie Lancaster’s mother outside court.
We need to stamp out this loutish behaviour, stupidity and leniency has led us to this situation and it can only be rectified by harsh punishments. I have already stated that I am in favour of the death penalty but even using for other crimes as well as murder would not be a complete solution.
I believe that we should bring back birching, public birching, for a raft of offenses, including being an unfit mother/father. Perhaps then we may start to see useless parents rein in their spoilt, undisciplined children. Either that or change the law back to how it used to be, so that any responsible adult can discipline their children for them.
Unless we start taking drastic actions against this epidemic of anti social behaviour, violence and gang culture, more innocents will die and the honest hard working people of Britain will be too scared to leave their own homes after dark.
