Wow, and my wife and I just watched Goodfellas last night.
Craziness. It will be interesting to see what their "complicated private" issue was. Somehow I doubt it's anything that makes much sense.
That's sickening. He seemed to have shown no remorse. I wonder what his motive was...
Even in the best neighbourhoods...
Murder Mile comes to Hampstead. Nasty...
yikes grusome stuff
here comes another kneejerk law banning axes.
*adds this to the list of places i dont want to go* i dont think i want to go there now ... dont want to be murdered -_-
crazy things have been happening all over the place....
guy shoots judge and others in courtroom in Atlanta, GA
guy shoots members of his religious community while at a service, killing seven including himself in Wisconsin
this as well...
what is happening to the world??
crazy lunar cycles going on or what?
That's just sick. I stopped reading after that graphic description about the head. Hope justice is served.
It will be interesting to hear the background story behind this -- it's extremely unlikely to be a random attack even with what the attacker allegedly said afterwards...
Question is: what could have possibly enraged the attacker to the extent of wanting to brutally slay someone in broad daylight on an open city street?
The UK tabloids will have a small field-day with this tomorrow.
Call me a cynic but I very much doubt it will be.
Being banged up for the rest of your life drugged to the eyeballs in a psychiatric institution or in solitary confinement is a real easy ride, a bundle of laughs, a summer holiday...
Is that what the authorities are doing with the perpetrator of this crime?
I have to admit to only reading the linked story quite quickly and didnt realize someone had been charged with a crime, been before a court plead a case one way or the other, had judgment passed and been sentenced to the above description.
I take back my cynicism and applaud the British legal system for its swift action even if Im still not sure that would pass for justice.
"...and I think to myself, what a wonderful world..."
Unbelievable - what is this world coming to?
Looking by the blood spray, he didn't sharpen his axe. Too bad for the residents though, this is burnt in their minds forever.
That is such a heinous crime. So unimaginable to use a axe on a human being. The suffering and pain must have been horrific. My prayers go out to the victims family and friends.
I'd have probably run him through with my car... then again, not having been in that situation before (thank god) I can't be sure.
Absolutely horrific. I can't even begin to fathom how anyone could such a cold-blooded act. It makes me sick.
I also doubt it will. Can he plead insanity in the UK? Hope not, because with the number of witnesses who claim that he seemed calm, not angry, it seems as if justice won't necessarily be served.
Somehow you don't expect stuff like that in England
Yeah. I thought English people kill each other socially through gossip and snide british-accented remarks.
Well, people used to get drawn and quartered only a few hundred years earlier. I'd expect that to suck more.
that is crazy... and from the article it seems like that's a fairly upmarket part of town.
well i wonder which violent videogame or movie made that person do that.
My mother and I were talking about this and the victim was in his 60's and had sexually abused the purpetrator since he was a child. (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/4352009.stm)
Doesn't mention the abuse in that article but she works at one of the branches of a restaurant this guy works at.
Certainly puts a VERY different spin on it. I highly doubted somebody would randomly attack with such directed brutality.
