and then stabbed to death at Victoria Station by a group of gang members who had planned the event on facebook, according to the BBC. This murder, which made all of us in W12 pause for breath since most of us who've lived here for long enough know exactly which local gang carrries out this sort of thing in Shepherd's Bush itself, took place in March last year.
Another life lost. For nothing.
I'm writing this from a part of the world where tens of thousands of young people have died in a 30 year old civil war. They took up arms, on both sides, because they felt there was no alternative. That's not something the pathetic members of gangs in Shepherd's Bush can say. They wouldn't last 5 minutes here.
