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, hes 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.
Clearly takes his fashion hints from the “holder’s people” gangstas on this side of the pond.
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.
The suspect's 31-year-old mother also appeared at Croydon magistrates' court this morning charged with perverting the course of justice.
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.
Each bat sings its own song.
One solution: HANG ‘EM HIGH!!!!
That would stop that crap!!!
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.
Amish influence running wild across the pond too, I see.
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.
Well, what do you know? The Knockout Game goes global, with the same participants.
I am past sick of seeing our elderly getting haymakered and killed by these subhumans.
If that were Singapore, what would they do with him?
Strange, they don’t have slavery as an excuse.....
I don’t believe in redemption for such violent idiots. I believe in removal via execution. I believe in recycling.
