Two teens murdered in North London

In two separate incidents two teenagers were stabbed to death yesterday bringing this year’s teen murder toll to 11 already. BBC coverage here. They say:

Police said Amro Elbadawi was injured in Dart Street, Queen’s Park, on Thursday afternoon and was confirmed dead after being taken to hospital.

In a separate incident, a 17-year-old died after being stabbed in a street in Stamford Hill, north London, on Thursday morning.

Some people have criticised me for raising this issue. Clearly they are not teenagers from hard up families for whom this is their main concern.

1 January: Henry Bolombi, 18, stabbed
5 January: Faridon Alizada, 18, stabbed
21 January: Boduka Mudianga, 18, stabbed
26 January: Fuad Buraleh, 19, beaten
19 February: Sunday Essiet, 15, stabbed
29 February: Ofiyke Nmezu, 16, beaten
2 March: Teng Le, 17, stabbed
13 March: Michael Jones, 18, beaten
15 March: Nicholas Clarke, 19, shot
27 March: Devoe Roach, 17, stabbed
27 March: Amro Elbadawi, 14, stabbed

Why should anyone criticise you for raising this issue? It is good that you are commenting on this. These are young people without great influence who the police would all too likely forget about and bury in paperwork. (As anyone who has tried to report a crime in the not too recent past and had to wait in a queue for hours at an Ealing Police Station, and then have to stand at a desk for an hour or more while making the report [Ealing Police clearly don’t believe in chairs for their customers–i.e. the general public]) will know!

“Bring to the light that which is hidden.” (biblical quote from the Apocrypha area of various Christian Bibls.

Far too much gets swept under the carpet these days… Sad, but true.



I think it’s an issue that needs to be brought into the light as much as possible, especially here in Hackney. In the last fortnight we’ve had a fatal stabbing in Stamford Hill, a fatal shooting in Dalston, a non-fatal stabbing in Mare Street, another murder in Hackney Downs…. and not a squeak from our blogging Labour councillors.

(ps – I met you very briefly at Boris’s transport launch. I was sitting on your left! Hope the campaigning is going well in your area).
