Teenager, 16, 'killed kindly OAP with single punch' during riots
Daily Mail ^ | August 16, 2011 | Oliver Pickup

Posted on 08/16/2011 12:23:33 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

A 16-year-old boy killed a pensioner with a single punch as he tried to put out fires during the London riots, a court heard.

Onlookers pleaded ‘no, no, he’s an old man’ as a teenager wearing a T-shirt with the slogan ‘Robbers and Villains’ attacked.

Richard Mannington Bowes, 68, was punched in the face as he tried to extinguish a blaze near his home in Ealing, West London.

The force of the blow caused him to fall over smashing his head on the pavement. He died three days later on August 11 from the injuries he sustained. A 16-year-old boy has been charged with Mr Bowes's murder.

The Crown Prosecution Service also charged the Hounslow-based teenager - unidentified for legal reasons - with violent disorder as well as four counts of burglary.

They related to looting at a William Hill bookmakers, a Tesco Express, a Blockbusters video shop and a Fatboys restaurant.

The chubby teenager appeared in the dock in a black T-shirt with his arms folded. He did not enter a plea to the charges.

Should investigate this for being a hate crime.

It’s almost to the point that the UK public is getting what they deserve. Is anybody there rethinking their aversion to self defense and firearms ownership?

Along with the requisite underwear display.

Considering that aluminum bat sales went up 52 000 percent, compared to prior to the riots, I’d say, ‘probably’.

I also find it interesting to note that they are buying aluminum and not wood.

A poignant detail from another story on the incident:

The suspect's 31-year-old mother also appeared at Croydon magistrates' court this morning charged with perverting the course of justice.

On a related case of knocking a man into a concrete curb:
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Two employees of soul singer Patti LaBelle made a brief court appearance Wednesday morning. They are charged with assault over a fight with a West Point cadet at Bush Intercontinental Airport back in March.

Norma Harris, the 63-year-old hairdresser for LaBelle, and 43-year-old bodyguard Efrem Holmes stood before a judge for the first time since being charged in the March 11 assault of former West Point cadet Richard King. The whole incident was caught on surveillance video.

Its sad that we cant fry these heinous juveniles and save all their future victims from them. My guess is he’s only gonna get worse in juvenile detention, get out when he’s 18 and wreak havoc on as many lives as he can until he’s incarcerated again. He’ll wind up costing the tax payers hundreds of thousands, if not more than a million when a 39 cent bullet to the occipital lobe would be the rational decision.
The picture says it all. He aspires to be a thug, a thief, a bully and a murderer.

The man in the article would have been well served with a simple, small S&W .32 snub, Chiefs Special. What a shame.

Aluminum, or as the Brits say “aluminium,” is lighter. Besides, once they’re done using an aluminum bat on some punk’s head, they can take it to the recycler and exchange it for a few pence.

They probably do. The blacks from the West Indies were mostly imported as slaves to the Islands. But that was looong ago....

jeez...no part of that picture would lead one to believe this cretin is black. Further, it couldn't be farther from the truth that this 'person' committed a hate crime. no sir....no racist hate here.....

When this happens here continually, they are going to be sorry their numbers are so few..

It wasn’t the punch that killed. It was the sudden stop against concrete that killed. Abolish concrete. /s

It's simply the logical wages of "diversity" and PC.

Indeed, they don’t. But I know for sure if such things happened here that’s what it would be chalked up to.

Yup. Not only for this lowlife, waste of flesh, but his b!tch whore mother as well.

And also for every weak-kneed, PC, degenrate, toothless, cowardly, liberal G-damned judge and politician that allows this.

I’m not as enlightened as you, and had to look up OAP.

Isn’t this the case where someone from LaBelle’s camp (an airport employee?) called the incident into West Point and the cadet was suspended or expelled before the full facts came out?

Oh my, he’s black.

From the Reuters coverage and BBC clips I’ve seen, you would think that it was only white kids...

Funny how if 90,000 black kids are tearing up London the MSM publishes the pics of the dozen white trash scumbags that join in...

But then, we don’t have a lot of riots in Tucson...

Recycling means the atoms that are wasted on this murderer’s earthly existence are put to a better use such as being parts of dirt, flowers, ants and worms.
