wow..thats quite shocking...(which I guess is a huge under statement)

I spent two nights in the Holiday Inn in Swiss Cottage on Finchley Road the week before last!
It's quite a nice area.

Wow, thats actually stunning.. Now nowhere is safe..
Without wanting to divert from what is a sick tragedy, a mate of mine has just come out of hospital after being set upon by a gang. He looks totally awful.. And for a few quid.. In a supposedly "good" neighborhood in a small country town.. I guess crime knows no limits..
Well, it's not really a "beheading" (which, in these times, suggests some kind of terroristic activity) - the victim's head was bludgeoned to a pulpy mess.
Dunno if I'd get all worried about the neighborhood this happened in - it appears to be a crime with a motive, and that can always happen absolutely anywhere. The attacker apparently shouted "you've had this coming for twenty years", which may indicate some kind of abuse when you look at the age difference between victim and perpetrator.
"Youre known for having a liking for men who look like women."
"FFS I'm sick and tired of having to see a bloke bend over to pick something up or lean over and see their arse crack. For christ's sake pull your pants up or buy some underpants you bogan because nobody want's to see it. And this is a boat building shed (well one of them) not a porn studio."
but that someone would do that is any society is a worrying sign
Maybe not so public but this sort of thing is hardly new. It's only marginally more horrif than someone getting shot in public which happens in every society in the world.

Not sure how you mean this, but specifically motivated, extreme violence has been with us for thousands of years.Originally Posted by age_master
I find random violence far more disturbing. The other week out here (you may have read about this), a kid was convicted in court for beating another kid in front of his friends to death - specifically, he raised an umbrella, and drove it's point so brutally into the kid's head that it penetrated his brain, He then did it again, even harder, killing the victim instantly.
The victim was just waiting for his bus, and stood up for a female friend that the perpetrator decided to harrass - he'd never met the other kid before in his life. It's all just so without reason. This could happen to you or I tomorrow, and it can be just a case of being at the wrong place at the wrong time. That outrages and shocks me far more than somebody who appeared to know the victim and may have at least had an axe to grind (sorry) - not that either scenario is a good one.

I left and just start walking,And trappings why would they do that to me,why is the society changing like this,Why so much anger into a teenager why god?I asked,I have stopped thinking about that incident now,but the way people behave these days is totaly pathatic.
Bob is very insane stay away from him

That scumbag pleaded not guilty to that one, claiming he didn't know it would kill the guy. When you hit anyone with something and you hear a CRACK!, time to run.I find random violence far more disturbing. The other week out here (you may have read about this), a kid was convicted in court for beating another kid in front of his friends to death - specifically, he raised an umbrella, and drove it's point so brutally into the kid's head that it penetrated his brain, He then did it again, even harder, killing the victim instantly.
Another example of 'wrong place, wrong time'; at an ATM in a local shopping centre, a female decided to rob an old lady who'd just withdrawn some money. She bolted and a member of the public chased her down. She threw a hand backwards at him to get free as he grabbed her and she caught him in the throat. Next thing, he's stopped breathing.......... He survived but he had some permanent brain damage. How many of you would have done what that guy did? Quite a few I'd imagine.
How many would now?
Okay so it wasn't as deliberate an act but you get the point; random violence is everywhere.
Yeah, but it was an accident. It's not the kind of thing that makes me bang my head against a wall and scream "Why??? How on earth could you do something like that to somebody just because they talked back, or looked at you the wrong way - or for no reason at all????"Originally Posted by Top_Cat
