I thought this was a crime free zone. The blog I mean, not the area.
Click on the "crime" tag at the bottom of this article and you will find lots of articles about the issue. I think this story is pretty significant, given how high-profile the original incidents were.
I agree its a significant story, and am glad to see you don't take a 'Lewisham Life' editorial line on an issue that shouldn't be exaggerated, or brushed under the carpet.
With no cctv in a community that finds safety in silence I am hardly surprised. That the highly unusual transactions that occur around the barbers shops, late night store (!?) and station are not a major talking point tells you alot about the attitudes to crime and anti-social behaviour in the area.
Cheers, the local papers do a pretty thorough job on crime reporting, so I only report stuff that's major or not necessarily addressed by the papers.
Not sure I agree with the local press being thorough on crime.The South London Press, for example, refers to police as cops.Seriously.
And in the SLP people are never merely sent to prison, instead they are 'caged'. I once even saw a report where they referred to a man who had been found dead on the pavement as a 'bloke'.
It's the popular press, Cops is hardley a derogetory or unfamiliar term. What about copper or bobby? Police Officer? Police Constable? Peeler?
B*st*rds in black?
Interesting defence..."His case is that he was at the scene that day but that he was not the gunman. "He says that another man, named Nathan Allen was the gunman."Nathan Allen was shot dead on May 3 this year in New Cross.
Why is the story significant? A man has faced trial and found not guilty - so what's the problem?
^^The manner in which the incident occurred for a start, or are used to being out shopping dodging bullets?Did you not notice it was the defendent who put forward the name of someone who himself was killed in a shooting. "The court also heard that a very high level of gun residue was found on D'Aguiar's clothing and smaller amounts were found on his hair and face."A main witness in this case was a member of the public passing by at the time of the shooting.Maybe you need reminding of the shooting of a totally innocent female who was shot in 'cross-fire' in New Cross.
Why is the story significant? Well the incident in question was significant so the fact that the gunman / woman has not been caught is therefore significant.
And never will be.
thanks Nick, of course, you're correct that a culprit hasn't been apprehended, but I'm still missing what the particular significance of this case is.But is there a suggestion from some of the other comments that a miscarriage of justice has occurred?
If there is any suggestion of that I will shut the thread down for comments. Can't allow that sort of speculation, sorry. The court has reached its verdict.
anon 15:44 is trying to bring evidence of his/her own I think
