More madness in lawless London

JS147904943

It’s  not exactly “BREAKING NEWS” that London has been center of some knife and gun crimes over the past 6 months, so when it’s reported on a daily basis, that another group of yobs carrying zombie knives and riding on mopeds, it doesn’t come as a shock to the Great British public.

But what exactly is being done about it?

I mean let’s admit it, the police are too afraid to make arrests if the offenders are black due to them being accused of racism, the scummy yobs know their rights and know that a ‘no comment’ interview will buy them a bit more time until the police find any conclusive evidence of their involvement and the courts will only give them a slap on the wrist or a petty few months in prison which will teach them sod all. What an amazing justice system we do have…

So what is the latest happenings in the capital?

The police have released dashcam images (above) showing the frightening moments where robbery suspects jumped on a victims car bonnet, a Mazda MX5, as it was parked at a set of traffic lights, in Finchley, North London, on Saturday 2nd June (2018).
Two mopeds, carrying four males, rode up ton either side of the car. One of the suspects  was wielding a hammer and another was brandishing a large ‘Zombie style’ knife.
One of the suspects jumped on the bonnet of the car, kicking the windscreen twice until it broke. The suspects then jumped back onto the mopeds and headed west towards Brent Cross.
The driver of the car suffered a knife cut to his arm and was later discharged from hospital.
Detectives from Barnet CID are investigating but say no arrests have been made at this stage.

How long are these incidents going to go on for? What is being done to protect innocent citizens from these gangs? And what will it take for this madness to be stopped?

Graphic junk food packaging? Welcome to 2018

JS147904943

A study by the University of Melbourne and Cancer Council Victoria has found that putting graphic health warnings- similar to those found of cigarette packaging- could prompt people to abandon “hedonistic impulses” and choose healthier food options.
The study monitored the brain activity of 95 people as they were shown 50 foods such as crisps, chocolate bars, biscuits, nuts, fruits and vegetables and it found that warning labels prompted people to exercise more self-control rather than act on impulses…

I could go on about the other content in the article but I stopped reading it because it was annoying me. At the end of the day people will buy junk food regardless of what is featured on the packaging. The public have been aware of the health risks of junk food for years, this is not news to us, so surely this just proves that people will continue to buy the foods they want despite the risks?

There were health warnings issued on cigarettes but people still smoke so what difference has it made really? What are they going to do next? Put health warning images on alcohol?

Why can’t we just be left to make our own decisions without the interference of the health police? I don’t believe people will be swayed so what is the point?

On the run: A Freedom of Movement balls up

JS147904943

A pianist, Jacek Serafin (above) raped a student and was able to flee the UK after his arrest because EU’s Freedom of Movement  allowed him to board a Eurostar without his passport.

Serafin had his passport confiscated by police after he was arrested for the sexual assault of his 22 year-old student, whose drink was spiked. However, on April 26th (2018) just a few days before he was due to face a retrial for rape, he used an ID card to board a Eurostar train, bound for France, and vanished.
It is believed that he is not in his native country of Poland, but police have not been able to make contact despite efforts to track him down.

In Serafin’s absence, Judge Anthony Cross QC, posed the sentence of 14 years in prison as soon as Serafin is found.

Can we have a huge round of applause for the EU seen as they have screwed up yet again! What a bloody joke?! But how was he able to board a Eurostar without a passport I hear you ask? Well, he was able to because the EU Directive 2004/38/EC states that any EU citizen who stays in another EU Member State for less that 3 months, need only a valid ID to move between Member States.
So, in other words, an EU citizen can go to another Member State, commit a crime and avoid prosecution by State hopping. Great.

And people question why Brexit is happening?!

Good luck to the police on finding this cretin though, however, I doubt he will be found or return back to the UK in a hurry.

Late starts for obese employees? Give me a break!

JS147904943

A government adviser has stated that obese workers should be allowed to start work late in order to avoid the rush-hour crush and should also have the right to seek legal action against their employer should they not get a job or promotion due to their weight.

Doesn’t this make you sick?! If they are able to work then they are able to get there on time. If they want to avoid the rush-hour then they could always leave earlier. It’s not rocket science! So what if they’re at work earlier, they could always use that time to their advantage and do something productive instead of complaining about being obese and the struggle of getting to work. If their weight bothers them that much they could always do something about it instead of inconveniencing their employers and fellow colleagues. It shouldn’t be up to the employer to make sure that member of staff is at work for their start time, that is up to the employee, obese or not. And later start times means more work for the people who are at work on time because they will have to pick up the slack until the obese worker gets their ass in, which could in turn create resentment in the workplace and result in the obese worker not wanting to go to work because of the tension they’re getting from their colleagues… It’s a can of worms that really should not be opened.

And suing the employer for them not getting the job/promotion because of their weight is just ridiculous! Prove that is the reason why they didn’t get the promotion! Unless the employer actually said “You’re not suitable for that position because you’re fat” then there is very little that can be done. This is just going to be a huge waste of time for employers, employees and solicitors.

No, I’m sorry but I don’t agree with the government adviser who came up with this. I think he needs to take my advice and shut up!

Another child rapist: What is happening to the youth of today?

JS147904943

The Dorset Echo featured an article about police arresting an 11 year-old boy on suspicion of raping a 7 year-old boy in a Dorset village.
The alleged attack is said to have happened at an outside location on Monday the 14th of May (2018), close to the victims home.

It is said, by the victims mother, that he was playing outside when he went out of view around a corner. When her son returned, a short while later, his clothing was in disarray and she seemed subdued.
Upon questioning, the boy told his parents that he had been raped.

Dorset police have confirmed that they are investigating the incident.
An 11 year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of rape and has been released under investigation to allow officers to establish the full circumstances around the incident.”

So another ‘alleged’ child rapist. Another child victim who has had their childhood innocence taken away and been left traumatized. What the hell is with kids these days? This is the second incident of this kind I have wrote about in the past few months.

11 year-old boys should be playing football, video games, whatever, not committing crimes or raping young children! Luckily, the offender in this case is over the age of criminal responsibility so, hopefully, they will be prosecuted accordingly to give the victim and his family some sense of justice.

You have to wonder about the offenders parents though, I mean how many 11 year-old boys actually know what rape is let alone know how to carry out the offending act? How did that boy learn about how to rape? Did he learn it from pornography? Did he learn it online? Did he plan it? There are so many questions! And if he did learn it from porn or online, then why didn’t his parents have measures in place to prevent him accessing such sites and information?
It is concerning that he knew that he had to get his victim alone, that he had to be careful not to be caught, that he knew what technique to use to carry out the actual rape, that he knew exactly what he was doing.

I can only imagine, if this goes to trial, the public outcry there will be. The public don’t want to protect child criminals, especially those who commit severe offences such as rape or murder, there will be cries for the offender to be strung up!

And, in all honesty, can you blame them?

Keeping the NHS

JS147904943

A new analysis, reported by the Health Foundation and the Institute for Fiscal Studies, has stated that if the NHS is to get back on track, the UK spending on healthcare will have to rise by 4% a year over the next 15 years.
Meeting the demands of the NHS would require taxes to rise by between £1200 and £2000 per household.

The analysis also found that by 2034, there will be 4.4 million more people in the UK ages 65 and over. Meanwhile, the number of people with complex long-term conditions are set to soar.

“Unless we tackle the funding issue, and build up the workforce, we will see further strain on NHS finances and services” – Niall Dickson, Chief Executive of the NHS Confederation.

So the people who work their asses off are going to be taxed more to provide healthcare for everyone? How fair is that? Maybe the NHS bosses need to look at what what is wasting resources and charge people for those resources? For example, A&E patients who are there simply because they can’t handle their alcohol intake on a night out or drug addicts. I understand that they may require medical assistance but surely if you require assistance due to self-infliction then you should be charged for the treatment you get?

And would it also help if EVERYONE contributed towards the cost of the NHS instead of just the tax payers who have their rent and other lifestyle costs to pay for? I mean why should someone who claims benefits, who has their rent paid and who basically lives Scott free get away without making a contribution towards any health treatments they may need? It should not be up to the hard working British public to pay for the healthcare for the scum of society or for those who decide to abuse their bodies with drugs.
Also, charging non-British nationals for any healthcare they receive . I don’t believe that anyone who is not a British national should get free treatment on the NHS unless they have made contributions towards the NHS since the age of 18.

The government need to bring in drastic measures in order to get all finances in order not just the NHS, and if that means cutting benefits across the board to £73 a week maximum, if it means child tax credits being a maximum of £60 a week then so be it. Yes people who are on benefits will kick up a fuss but there is no reason why they cannot work unless they have a life-changing health condition or disability.
Call me harsh but even some people who are classed as having a disability still have the ability to work if they wanted to.

Changes need to be made in order to get the NHS back on track and I don’t believe that hiking up taxes is the way to do it.

 

Justice for lies

JS147904943

Between Jannuary and March 2016, A Costin (above) accused three men of rape and a fourth man of physical assault.
She told police how one of the men raped her on the carpet of her home after taking her clothes off. The man was arrested but released after police managed to confirm his alibi. However, Costin then made another allegation against the man, this time claiming that he had sexually assaulted her by grabbing her breasts. Once again, the man was arrested but released after proving a compelling alibi… He was on holiday at the time. Unfortunately, the man also suffered from learning difficulties which made the allegations even harder on him as a victim of Costin’s lies.

The second man who was accused by Costin, similarily raped her in her own home. She claimed that he ‘forced her onto the sofa and pulled down her clothes and raped her’. Police were able to prove that the man was watching TV at home at the time of the alleged attack. Again, Costin brought another false claim of rape against the man, but this time he was able to prove that he was eating a take-away dinner at home at the time of the alleged second attack.

The third alleged attack followed a similar pattern and all three men said the allegations had affected their relationships with women and led to them suffering abuse, lost sleep and needing medication. One of them was left traumatized by the accusation as he too has mental health problems.

Costin, who has previous convictions mostly involving harassment, has self-harm issues going back to childhood and suffers from ADHD, autistic spectrum disorder and borderline personality disorder.
The case was referred to the Appeal Court after a lawyer from the Attorney General, James Wright QC, attacked her previous sentence of three years community service as being ‘unduly lenient’.

“In light of her [Costin] guilty pleas and a very substantial personal mitigation we will reduce that figure [six years] to four years” – Lady Justice Hallett.

So because some nutjob accuses three men of rape and one of physical assault, the men accused have their lives and reputations ruined and all she gets is four years? Do you really think these men will be seen as innocent? People always believe the bad stuff and society has the view that if you’re arrested then you must have committed the crime, not that some deluded psycho has lied for god knows whatever reason.

And surely if Costin has mental health problems then she should be put into a mental hospital rather than a prison? She needs medical help to manage her mental health otherwise she is never going to change. She needs coaching on what is appropriate in society and taught that lying about rape is not acceptable.

Women, like Costin, who lie about being raped make it so much more difficult for genuine victims to prove their case in court. It also makes it virtually impossible for the police and the legal system to believe Costin if she ever was to be raped. And she only has herself to blame.

The sentence may not be up to much but alas justice has been done. And I can only hope that the men falsely accused can, with time, get their lives back on track and put this sordid ordeal behind them.

Death in custody

JS147904943  Tyrone Quinn, sentenced to six years in prison after causing death by dangerous driving whilst under the influence of cocaine and alcohol, was pronounced dead in custody at HMP Northumberland on Monday 14th of May (2018).

Quinn was serving his second prison sentence when he died and had a string of previous convictions.
He had previously been banned from driving for 6 months in August 2015, after he had crashed into an off-duty police sergeant in December 2014.
Then, in May 2016, he was jailed for 16 weeks for assaulting a 77-year-old man in an unprovoked attack. However, Quinn was released in July 2016, just six days before he got behind the wheel of the BMW Coupe, whilst under the influence of cocaine and alcohol, which resulted in him crashing the car and causing the death of his passenger and friend, James.

So, as you can see, he is hardly the law abiding model citizen. And yet you have the Face Book comments by people who think the scumbag should get sympathy and criticizing the staff at HMP Northumberland.

Truth is, and I will probably be crucified for saying this, if Mr Quinn hadn’t of been such a waste of space and had been on the right side of the law then his death would have been prevented. However, no one will see it this way, people would rather see him as a victim and heap the responsibility of his death on the HMP staff.
The staff can only do so much and if the prisoners were on 24-hour surveillance then you know someone would tell them that it was against their Human   Rights, so what are the staff supposed to do?

There was also numerous comments on the diabolical BBC Panorama program that was filmed at HMP Northumberland. Does it occur to people that only the serious stuff that happened was filmed and broadcast? I mean it’s just strange that the undercover officer had to go through 9 weeks training and was at the prison for a total of 11 weeks and the footage that was shown was all he got. Surely if it was as bad as he was making out then there would have been something a little more serious than some prisoners taking spice and threatening staff. What about the good side of the prison? He didn’t show the workshops where the prisoners make things for charity, he didn’t show the library or the education wing which helps prisoners better themselves. The BBC knew exactly what to look for and the majority of society fell for it, hook, line and sinker.

It’s hardly breaking news that there’s drugs, mobile phones and other banned items found in prisons, it happens in ALL prisons. So why don’t the BBC film inside HMP Frankland or Strangeways? Is it because those prisons belong to HMP and not privately ran by Sodexo, like HMP Northumberland? The undercover journalist didn’t make out that the staff in HMP prisons are out of their depth, like he did with the Sodexo staff. And you know why? Because the BBC is government owned, just like the HMP prisons.

Anyway, getting back to the death in custody, I noticed a comment on The Chronicle Live’s Face Book page which said “there are so many young men dying in that prison”, and it took all my will power not to comment back saying that if they hadn’t of broken the law then they wouldn’t of been there and would still be alive. It’s not rocket science!

I guess the silver lining of Quinn’s death is that he can’t cause harm to anyone else in the general public and no more public money will be wasted on keeping his scummy ass.

Eight-year-old rapist: No justice for the victim

domestic_abuse_graphic_A_orange

I was reading through news articles on the Daily Mail’s website and came across a story which annoyed the hell out of me. It was about a mother who was speaking out about her eight-year-old son’s rape.

The mother, let’s call her Mo, told sources that the attacker was her sons school friend who had went to their house on a play-date to play with Lego.
She said that the two boys went upstairs into her sons room where the attacker wedged the door shut with a chair, closed the curtain and asked the victim to show his genitals. He then proceeded to rape him, telling him not to say anything to his parents as they would be angry with him.
The victim revealed what had happened during his bedtime routine when his mother had asked why he had been upset when the other boy had gone home. The other boy is said to have attempted to rape the victim on four other occasions before this incident.

Mo reported the incident to the police but was told that there was nothing they could do as the attacker was under the age of criminal culpability. Her son has been left with severe depression and Mo states that he threatens to self harm and keeps ‘wishing to die’.

THIS IS A DISGRACE! That poor child has had his innocence and childhood taken away from him by someone who he considered to be a friend and the law says that there is nothing they can do due to the offender being under the age of criminal responsibility? Really? So what we let eight year-old rapists off the hook because the law stated they’re two years under the age to be prosecuted? We let them off so they can do it again and again to other victims? What lesson is that teaching them? What justice is that giving the victim?

Screw criminal responsibility guidelines!

And it must be asked, how an eight-year-old knows how to carry out such an act? How did he know to wedge the door shut and to threaten the victim so he would keep quiet? Does that not scream that the offender has witnessed this at some point? The fact that he wedged the door shut and made threats so no one would find out, screams that he knew what he was doing was wrong and that he was worried about the consequences if people found out.

Convict the little bastard is what I say! If he is capable of rape at the age of eight, what crimes will he be capable of when he is older?

Time to nip this in the bud before we have another serial offender on our hands.

11 domestic abuse traits that are illegal in a relationship

domestic_abuse_graphic_A_orange.png  Domestic abuse can take many forms, it is a very broad spectrum rang from psychological to physical, but fortunately, the law is more clued up these days and WalesOnline have published a list of the 11 things that are classed as abusive and are illegal for a partner to do whilst in a relationship.

1) Share sexually explicit images of you online or amongst friends. With the number of social media platforms and everything being about pictures and recordings on mobile phones, it is no wonder that ‘revenge porn’ offences were going to happen. Thankfully, the government recognised this and made it illegal to share intimate photos and videos of you be it online or between friends.

2) Restrict your access to money. The law clearly states that one partner cannot prevent the other from accessing money and should not give them ‘punitive allowances’. Charities have stated that they’ve heard of cases where victims were forced to provide receipts to account for any money they spent, or were given such small allowances that they couldn’t afford to feed themselves or their children.

3) Repeatedly putting you down. You may not think of persistent name calling and put downs as domestic abuse but the law states that this, as well as mocking and other insulting behaviour towards your partner is illegal.

4) Isolating you from family and friends. This could be done by monitoring your emails, social media accounts and blocking your phone calls, they may even tell you where you can and cannot go or what you can and cannot speak to. This behaviour is against the law and classed as domestic abuse.

5) Scare you. If you are feeling frightened by the way your partner is treating you then they are committing an offence. The acts they may carry out in order to make you feel frightened include; making angry gestures; using physical size to intimidate you; shouting you down; destroying your possessions; breaking things; punching walls; wielding a knife or a gun; making threats to kill you, your pets or your children; and also threaten suicide.

6) Threaten to reveal private things about you. This can be done by them divulging details about your health or sexual orientation and repeatedly threatening to reveal personal information about you to friends, family and also online.

7) Track your mobile devices. The CPS has stated that it is illegal under the new legislation to ‘monitor a person using online communication tools or spyware’. Therefore if they insist on checking your social media accounts or tracking your mobile devices then they are committing an offence.

8) Being extremely jealous. If your partner constantly accuses you of cheating just for looking at another person, then this could be grounds for prosecution under S.79 of the Serious Offences Act 2015.

9) Making you obey their rules. If you are forced to abide by rules your partner has set, it could mean that they are committing an offence. Examples of this sort of behaviour include; rules which humiliate, degrade or dehumanise the victim as well as telling the victim that they have no choice in decisions.

10) Control what you wear. Taking control over any aspect of your life is highlighted in the new legislation, this also includes controlling the clothes you wear as well as having control over how you look.

11) Forcing you to do things you don’t want to do. This can include forcing the victim to commit crimes, forcing them to neglect or abuse the children, or simply forcing the victim not to speak out about the abuse that is happening within the relationship.
It can also include forcing the victim into watching porn, having sex when they don’t want to or forcing them to have sex with other people.

The article goes on to say that if you have any concerns about yourself or anyone you know being in an abusive relationship then you can report it to Samaritans or the police on 101… Personally, and speaking from experience, phoning the police or Samaritans on behalf of someone else, without their permission, could put them in an even more dangerous position when it comes to the abuse as the abuser will believe that the victim spoke out about what has been happening. So please, before you report anything, make sure the victim wants you to otherwise it can make the abuse 100 times worse for them.

As I have mentioned in a previous post, I was the victim of domestic abuse and the level of support I received from the police, as well as local domestic abuse charities, was amazing. It was difficult speaking about what was happening at the time but once I had, and once I had left the marriage, I felt like I was starting a whole new life. It might have taken me six months to get my home back for me and my daughter but the fight was well worth it.

Now I live in a beautiful home with my new partner, who is the most caring and loving man I have ever met, and my daughter, who has nothing to do with her abusive father. We are a little family and the abuse is behind us. So you see, life can get better after abuse, if you fight for it enough.

I would also recommend signing up to your local Freedom Programme course if you are suffering or have suffered domestic abuse as the course provides you with information about abuse and also gives you warning signs to avoid getting into another abusive relationship.

Good luck!
