Girl, 14, accused of supplying machine guns
http://www.thisislocallondon.co.uk/display.var.970828.0.girl_14_accused_of_supplying_machine_guns.php

A FOURTEEN-YEAR-OLD girl from north-west London stands accused of conspiracy to supply a machine gun capable of firing 1,000 rounds a minute.

The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is one of four suspects from the area who appeared at High Barnet magistrates' court charged with gun-related crimes.

She was charged with possessing two revolvers, a Mac-10 machine gun and a second machine pistol.

A 16-year-old male youth was also accused of possessing a revolver with intent to endanger life, as well as drugs and CS sprays.

18-year-old Korrey Johnson-Bell, of Westfield Close, Brent, was charged with possession of a machine pistol while Genevieve Sahel, 31, also of Westfield Close, faced charges of conspiracy to supply firearms, possession of prohibited weapons and possession of ammunition.

Their court appearance on Saturday follows an investigation by London's Trident crime unit, which handles gun crime in black communities. It occurred as five more victims fell prey to gun crime in the capital this weekend.

Gang warfare upsurge

An internal police report, revealed by the Observer newspaper on Sunday, painted a grim picture of the surge in gang warfare and "post-code killings" in London.

The report focuses on Hackney, where father-of-two Steven Nyembo-Ya-Muteba was murdered outside his home two weeks ago after asking a gang of youths to be quiet.

It says gun and knife crime in the north-east London borough is increasing more rapidly than anywhere in the capital.

The report, written by Superintendent Leroy Logan, highlights the "terrible acts of gratuitous violence" that have afflicted the area, "ending up in young people losing their lives or being badly injured, because they were visiting the area and were known by the local violent youth, showing the serious implications of district code warfare".

Violent music videos

The police chief points to a growing trend which is seeing gangs produce music videos, being broadcast on digital music channels, encouraging violent attacks on rivals.

The report, circulated across the Metropolitan police four months ago, warns that if "gangster glamour, was not "shattered" it would "continually end up in predator-type packs of youths committing the most disgusting acts of violence and other forms of crime".

According to the Observer, police are particularly concerned about Sky television's Channel U which is seen by some as glamorising gang culture.

Darren Platt, the director of Channel U, told the paper it had "tightened things up" and now rejected videos advocating violence and guns.

God squad

One solution put forward by Superintendent Logan is the US initiative of "street pastors".

Under the American scheme volunteers from local churches, wearing overtly religious clothing, patrol crime hotspots.

The report claims that black males aged between 13 and 19 are less likely to commit crime if they know a pastor is around.

Why not put clerical collars on all the police officers after running them through seminary?

I dont mean to sound dense here but what is this article really about. Seems like this article is like some threads here. Drifting...... Is it that 12 year olds with autos are the big societal danger here or is it that adolescent
gangs seem to be spurring some firearms related crimes. Besides everyone knows that the big black rifle is a danger to civilization. I dont know how many street gangs have autos, so where is the connection. O yeah all guns are bad.:neener:

Silly, that doesn't happen anymore. Guns are illegal there.

One round of .22 RF will land you in jail in the U.K. if you do have your papers in order.

I hope those guns went into the arms of people fighting the British government. Not criminals but those opposed to the English system of government.

I really wouldn't mind seeing those things in the arms of the IRA.

This must be a mistake. Those guns are banned in the UK. How in the world could someone actually get such a gun when when they are illegal? :eek:

This must also be a mistake. The Brady Campain assures us that crime goes down with gun bans not up. How can such a thing be? How could crimes, especially with guns and knives, be increasing with such "sensible gun laws" in the UK? :what:

The only solution, obviously, is to back the UN initiatives to ban all small arms worldwide. Then they couldn't be smuggled into the UK.

Don't worry, though! Governments would still be allowed to have guns, to maintain order and deter thought crimes.

Well DUHHHH

They just need to arrest the Guns, knives, and offensive weapons, and put them in a locked storage where they cannot see the violent digital music videos. That way they can save the poor innocent wittle children they are attacking.

I do have some concern thet the Guns knives and digital music viddies will not be able to recognize the clerical collars, since they have never been to church.

:barf: :barf: :barf:

I sure this will be an effective strategy for them.

Maybe they should remove their digitals as well as thier brains, from where they have stuck them now, and arrest some criminals and give them serious jail time.

Or they could give the Guns Knives and viddies to some law abiding citizens who can teach them gainfull employment as self defense tools.


NAHHHHH that will never work:cool:

To my mind, this only further illustrates the failure of "gun control".

If you're to hang for having a prohibited gun, it might as well be a
fully automatic machine pistol. No sense in anything less, if it's all
illegal anyway.

Business as usual in the UK...

And this from those who supposedly take the High Road.

Guess the WoT doesn't apply to the organisations that are painted green, then.
