Craig Brown murder: killer found guilty

anotherlifelost3Nathan Harris from the White City estate was found guilty this week of the killing of Craig Brown.

He will be sentenced on monday.

Just before this murder I came back from Liberia in west Africa, which is a country that for the last few decades has endured one of the worlds' most vicious and brutal civil wars even by African standards.

This is a place where kids frequently use extreme violence as a way of life.

And as I said at the time, when you consider the fact that so called 'hard' kids here, who by comparison live a life of absolute luxury, use this sort of violence over an issue we now know to be so trivial as a previous fight is depresing beyond belief.
