Hang 'em high

A 57-year-old man who was attacked after tackling teenage vandals has died in hospital.

The man was assaulted by up to eight youths at 10.45pm on Friday on Station Road North in Warrington, Cheshire.

He was taken to Warrington General Hospital but died, police said.

The victim is understood to have approached youths causing criminal damage in the area but was then attacked.

A Cheshire Police spokeswoman said eight male youths, aged between 15 and 19, were arrested and were helping with inquiries.

I wonder when the area in question had last seen a police patrol? Perhaps if there were more police actually walking the streets on a regular basis then, in the first place, vandalism of the kind these scum were perpetrating would be less frequent, and, furthermore, people like the victim in this case would be less at risk if they did intervene to stop such a crime being committed.

As a result of the essential abdication by the police of their duty to maintain law and order, we are, as Gareth at BNP and Me wrote after he had a run-in with a couple of graffiti "artists" a few months back, left with a choice between putting ourselves at risk of serious, potentially fatal, injury, and allowing young thugs to vandalise property and intimidate communities without any repercussions. Perhaps if the law-abiding citizenry were allowed to carry guns the situation might be rather better...

As for the thugs who did this: words are inadequate to express the loathing I feel towards them. Only the lowest kind of scum would actually kill someone because he asked them to stop doing something that was both illegal and wrong. As far as I am concerned, they are a good advertisement for the death penalty.

Update: More details of the crime are now available from the Daily Mail (thanks to a commenter for the link). The victim's name was Gary Newlove, and he was reportedly attacked after challenging teenagers who were throwing stones at a mechanical digger parked in his driveway. Apparently, there was a pre-existing problem with young thugs in the area drinking, taking drugs, vandalising property, and intimidating residents, and Mr Newlove had been attempting to set up a neighbourhood watch scheme in an effort to challenge this pattern of behaviour.

Well, seemingly the area has a pattern of thuggery, and the police have repeatedly been called.
Wonder if the response has been as usual.
Fucking useless.

The worst thing was when the TV interviewed a local woman and she stated" the kids don’t usually cause much bother they never bother me, they just get up to the normal stuff like breaking car mirrors and vandalising them, just normal kids stuff. Well if this is not an indictment of how sad Briton has become where residents cower behind curtain’s relieved that the marauding gangs only pick on their vehicles. What a mess and this is becoming the accepted norm. Thank goodness the BNP can remember what it used to be like when we had law and order and criminals no matter how old were punished, and punished properly. You want safe streets again vote BNP, it’s as simple as that. I am quite sure that when a few murderers have been hanged or are doing life hard time, the attitudes of the have a go little delinquents may change

It's all in our heads isn't it? I mean they were always this bad weren't they? Er...actually no.

This sad episode is an indictment of modern Britain, and New Labour's incompetence with regards to prison places means that a Clockwork Orange-style Britain isn't actually now that much of a far-fetched dystopia.

I would certainly vote for a party that allowed the law-abiding to bare arms.

"Islamic education for all!"

Great Britain plan would move toward ‘Religion of State’

A new government study is being condemned by the Christian ministry the Barnabas Fund because its proposals would move closer to imposing Islam in the United Kingdom as “a religion of state.”

Among the proposals from the study being considered for implementation is the provision by universities for Islamic studies for all students.

The report was initiated by Bill Rammell, the minister of state for higher education and lifelong learning, officials said. He appointed Ataullah Siddiqui, senior research fellow at the Islamic Foundation, to write it.

The Barnabas Fund, in an analysis, said the report “signals another step toward the Islamisation of Britain and its education system”

I repeat:


Western People got suicidal dumb because so Devil ordered it.

That’s the Apocalypse signal: MASS INSANE.

That, in a nutshell, is why I agree that Islam has expired. It’s literally imploding. While the Saudi Wahhabists are trying to take over America, there are also plenty of their enemies here in the form of opposing sects who also want to take over America.

The same is true in Europe, and they fight each other. The more they grow in size, the more they’ll fight each other, and the more they do that, the more we’ll fight them. Islam is ultimately self-defeating. Iraq is a perfect example of this.

Hey Yank! Vote Tancredo!

Tom Tancredo : “Nuke Mecca and Medina in the Event of a Nuclear Attack on the US.

“That is what they want, that is what they are looking for, to end Western civilization as we know it.”

IOWAPOLITICS.COM: OSCEOLA — Followers of radical Islam must be deterred from committing a nuclear attack on U.S. soil, Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo said Tuesday morning, saying that as president he would take drastic measures to prevent such attacks.

“If it is up to me, we are going to explain that an attack on this homeland of that nature would be followed by an attack on the holy sites in Mecca and Medina,” the GOP presidential candidate said.

“That is the only thing I can think of that might deter somebody from doing what they would otherwise do. If I am wrong fine, tell me, and I would be happy to do something else. But you had better find a deterrent or you will find an attack. There is no other way around it. There have to be negative consequences for the actions they take. That’s the most negative I can think of.”

The harsh approach is vital in order to prevent a worldwide collapse, Tancredo told nearly 30 people Tuesday morning at the Family Table restaurant.

What Syria is counting on is that Israel won’t use nukes against them. I don’t think they should count on that. I think it’s likely that Israel would nuke both the Hizbollah strongholds inside Lebanon as well as necessary strategic targets in Syria.

The Israelis are survivors, and survivors do what is necessary to survive. The Syrians are not survivors. They’re Arab muslims and have shown an amazing ability to die in large numbers because they’re basically savages and I fully expect this looming battle, if it happens, to be the same as before.
