HERE WE ARE AGAIN, ANOTHER PERSON BEATEN TO DEATH BY PUNKS …. IT NEVER ENDS.

Here’s the headline and it may not be 100% accurate.

Father-of-two beaten to death by gang after police ignore six 999 calls from victim and neighbours

That’s what’s in the paper online. But the cops got there too late and maybe could have been earlier. You read this and make up your own mind.

Here’s a couple of totally worthless young thugs who do a thing like this while other young men are serving their country in the most difficult circumstances.  And lets be honest here.  Anyone actually believe that LIFE really means that?


Father-of-two beaten to death by gang after police ignore six 999 calls from victim and neighbours

A father-of-two was beaten to death by a gang of drunken thugs just minutes after police told him they were too busy to help.

James Straiton, 59, and his neighbours dialled 999 six times after being threatened in their own homes by the gang.

But police operators said the force was experiencing a ‘high volume’ of calls and suggested they call a non-emergency number.

Tragedy struck when Mr Straiton, a taxi driver, decided to leave his flat and chase the thugs away himself.

Once outside in the street he was repeatedly punched, kicked and stamped on in an horrific and frenzied attack.

Two men, one 6ft 4in tall, jumped and stamped on his head leaving Mr Straiton unconscious on the ground with horrendous head injuries.

The father-of-two suffered a brain haemorrhage, damaged neck vertebrae, fractures to his face, arm, and three broken ribs.

He was found by police lying in a pool of blood and rushed to hospital before being transferred to a specialist neurology unit where he died two weeks later.

Today Joshua Spruce and 6ft 4in Nigel Goolding, both 20 of Northwich, wept when they were convicted of murder at Chester Crown Court.

Paul Blower, also 20, who was also at the scene but did not take part in the attack was acquitted.

The court was told a high-level inquiry had been launched into the police handing of the 999 calls on the night of the murder.

His brother, Edward Straiton, said: ‘I went to see him in hospital where he was so bad that I didn’t even recognise him initially.

‘He had never been an aggressive man. I had never known him to be in a fight, he was just always laughing and joking.’

In a statement his family said: ‘As a family we feel that this incident could have been avoided and is a sad indictment of the society we now live in whereby young men seem to think that it is perfectly acceptable to behave in this way after going for a night out, drinking too much, sometimes taking drugs, and ending the evening by beating someone unrecognisable.

‘Their selfish disregard for others has not only ruined our lives but also has far reaching effects on all the families involved in this pointless act of violence.’

The court heard the incident had happened on July 26 last year when the yobs walked home after attending a 40th birthday party in the Winnington Recreation Club, near Northwich in Cheshire.

They had each drunk between five and eight pints of beer and were staggering home making a lot of noise.

Mr Straiton, who lived alone, opened his window to ask them to be quiet but they rushed towards his window and began banging on it and hurling abuse.

Mr Straiton and neighbours then made six calls to Cheshire Police appealing for officers to come down and help.

One woman called 999 twice, the first at 1.11am telling the operator ‘Something quite nasty is going off.’

In another call she was audibly tearful as she said there was a disturbance adding: ‘I’m too frightened to look out the window. They’re trying to get into his flat or get him to come outside.’

Mr Straiton - known as Jock - then made two 999 calls saying the men had climbed over a fence into the apartment complex and telling the operator he felt threatened.

KILLER PUNKS

So the bastards cried? Oh boo-hoo. Feeling sorry for themselves although I’ve no idea why. They’ll get out of jail at a youngish age.  All their needs seen to and meals etc. Scum is what they are and the system here sucks.
Please go to the link for photos and the rest of the article.
BTW ... here’s what one Brit had to say in the comments section.  Interesting.

This is a despicable crime. How many more people have to die before we are allowed access to guns so that we can defend ourselves against violent thugs like these, especially when it’s clear that the police are no longer up to the job.

It stuns me that more and more people are dying from violent assaults and yet there are still individuals out there who believe that we should denied the means to protect ourselves in the best way possible.

They also seem to feel that leaving us defenceless is actually the best way of keeping us safe - how exactly does that work ?

Every person has the inalienable right to self-defence and nobody, and I mean nobody, has the right to take that away.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
