Even in the aftermath of his death

Baldy and Crazy

Canada Goose online I’ve always had a sick feeling in my stomach and my heart when hearing the details of his tortuous death. Even sitting in TV studios before interviews yesterday, tears came to my eyes hearing the reporters on the VT again describing how Kriss, who’d already been stabbed 13 times, was writhing around on the grass trying to put out the fire all over his body that the gangsters had lit by dousing petrol all over him.

You have to salute his mother Angela for showing maximum dignity during this whole affair. Even in the aftermath of his death, canada goose outlet black friday when it would have been so easy for her to lash out, she told the BNP to get the hell out of Pollokshields when they came looking for revenge.

Canada Goose Jackets Legend surrounds canada goose outlet ottawa the antics of stretching back over a decade. On one occasion they are said to have chopped off the thumbs of a guy who went out with their sister. Many, many people were beaten to pulps. They operated with a mafia style elusiveness when it came to the arm of the law. The sadism meted out to Kriss did not come out of the blue. Their crimes had been building up to this for a long time. There was almost a sad inevitability about it. Canada Goose Jackets

buy canada goose jacket They went about in a culture of impunity for ages. Despite this, Baldy had been sentenced to two and a half years in Feb 2003 for another attack.

I do believe that the brothers were a one off. I’ve heard senior Asians blaming themselves for the tragedy. I’m canada goose outlet online uk not sure what they or we could have done. All Asians can’t take ownership of just because they share the same skin colour. This country has seen disgusting murders take place before. We don’t even analyse the murderers families, let alone distant relatives, so why should all Asians take the canada goose outlet store uk rap for Kriss’s death?

canada goose coats on sale People have asked questions about the gang culture in Pollokshields. We need to separate out the unique evil that the brothers and their accomplices represented.

Canada Goose Outlet There have been indirect claims from police that they are scared to lift Asian troublemakers in Pollokshields lest the racist card be played. I find this hard to believe. For one, as I even wrote about yesterday, police are not afraid to approach “Asian looking” people, and indeed the government has created a climate where this is acceptable. Canada Goose Outlet

canada goose clearance Secondly, I would be flabbergasted if canada goose outlet london it’s the case that the police have evidence of criminality but do not act because someone is Asian if that’s what they’re saying, this needs to be investigated, and I for one Canada Goose Outlet simply do not believe it. The excuse of fearing a political correctness backlash only washes if police are suggesting they want to go on random fishing expeditions. This simply canada goose outlet shop will not do. I’ve seen anti social behaviour myself in Pollokshields. I’ve called the police when I’ve seen canada goose outlet reviews it. There are CCTV cameras up. Asians first and foremost expect them to act. canada goose canada goose factory outlet clearance

buy canada goose jacket cheap I agree with you absolutely that this murder was probably one of those hideous one offs which happens from time to time. The police and criminal justice systems usually can prevent them. buy canada goose jacket cheap

In this case it is probably pointless to complain about the rules which allow for early release of prisoners and which permitted Imran Shahid to be on the streets, because Lord Uist narration of their previous convictions makes it pretty clear that he would have killed someone sooner or later.

Although they picked Kriss because he was white it was reported that the Shielders had been engaged in canada goose outlet store montreal a feud with a white gang called the Young Street Mad Squad. canada goose black friday sale

Osama, in many ways this is a very Glaswegian crime, of canada goose outlet seattle a type that was common long before South Asian immigration the violence wrought during the turf wars fought by the razor gangs in the Kriss was white was one motive but that they associated him with a gang (to which he did not belong) seems to have been another.

Two gay friends who canada goose outlet hong kong ran a shop were getting severe homophobic aggravation from the Iraqi shopowner next door.

cheap Canada Goose Putting aside the fact that you have managed to lower the tone of a serious debate on an extremely serious topic by lobbing in an already refuted slur, one of my very serious concerns about the case has been the balance of some of the reporting. cheap Canada Goose

Yes, race was critical to the commission of the offence but Glaswegian gang culture seems to have been equally important. In my opinion both should be addressed in equal measure.
