Posted on 04/10/2007 7:39:19 AM PDT by RKV
Britain is experiencing a spate of murders that suggests a population increasingly unable, or unwilling, to control itself. A recent survey suggested that the British are now more prone to knife-fights than any other people in Europe. Guns have also become fashionable, despiteor is it because of?stringent laws against them. An emblematic recent murder was that of Krystal Hart, a pregnant 22 year-old, shot with two bullets in the head and then found in her apartment in an up-and-coming part of London, which she shared with her mother.
As with any widely publicized murder in Britain these days, an outpouring of sentiment ensued. Mourners left flowers (still in cellophane wrapping) at the site, and the press conducted interviews with the victims relatives, who never seemed too distressed to grab a moment of fame, and who noted that the victim was a wonderful person. Then followed the typically emasculated detective, whose first thought, at least for public broadcast, was for the grieving relatives, and who said that this was a senseless murder, implying that perhaps there are perfectly sensible ones. Thus, the public gets the impression that what was terrible about the murder was not that it was contrary to common lawthe nature of the victim being irrelevantbut that a young and pretty pregnant woman, so bubbly and full of life, died. If she were a person of different characteran old reclusive miser, sayit wouldnt have been so terrible, it seems, and certainly wouldnt have been worth publicizing.
Krystal Harts boyfriend, who had impregnated her, lamented that he had so looked forward to starting a family with her. Some might say that he had already done so. But that was not his only involvement with the incident. Shortly before the murder, he had come to her apartment, and had a disagreement with an associate of one of her neighbors; both of them, separately, left the scene. Hart and the neighbor, it turns out, had a long-standing dispute about parking spaces, but also about something else, as yet unknown to the public. Their ongoing quarrel was so acrimonious that Harts fatherseparated from her mother, as is now customaryhad installed a closed-circuit television at the entrance to the apartment for security.
Thirty minutes after the quarrel, the neighbors associate, his ego no doubt bruised by something said in the dispute, returned with a gun, probably searching for the boyfriend. Instead, after kicking the door down, he shot Krystal Hart.
The media reports of practically every murder in Britain now conclude with the words, The police are studying the CCTV evidence. Britain has by far the highest density of closed-circuit television cameras in the world, each Briton being filmed 300 times per day. But no amount of electronic surveillance can ensure common decency.
I was pointing more at the ones you listed. Unless you are making your points in an absolute sense, but then of course one can never eliminate murder entirely.
Not that Im particularly happy with CCTV cameras tracking our every move.
Why am I not surprised that there is no mention of what percentage of the killers are first or second generation killers from third world loser cultures?
Sorry to tell you this, but if there's no swords, magic, sorcery and dragons in it, it might not do so well...
Are the protagonists refugees from the third world?
LOL. No. It is more of historical fiction loosely based on our ancestors.
Okay I get it. Everbody knows the line”if you outlaw guns only oulaws will have guns”. Saw a picture of the poor murdered girl on Sky news. She was very good looking. How some guy could shot in the head is very sick.
Thanks for the Ruger pic. I love single-action revolvers...Ruger, Uberti’s cowboy clones, whatever...
I believe Bisley is not just any place, but the place where a major shooting competition is held. So the anti-gun nuts would have more than just your Ruger to fret about.
Yes, that’s true. Bisley is the location of a shooting match that dates back to the 19th century, I believe.
(I was just trying to minimize the amount of detail in my post.)
They’re becoming more like the USA pictured in all the movies we export!
