Subject: BS: Lone nutter did Manchester bombing
From: Big Al Whittle
Date: 11 Jun 17 - 09:32 PM

So no vast network of discontented muslims.

Not a freedom fighter combating the ghastly Brits, with a deep insight into our imperialist past.

Just an unhinged individual whom a caring society would have sorted out, and whom the authorities had been alerted about - but decided to do nothing for.

Told ya!

"Acted alone" is a very convenient label and allows the authorities off the hook and saves them much embarrassment. How do you know it is the truth though?

Precisely Iains, the truth of the matter is that due to the appalling leak and lack of judgement on the part of the NY Times we will never know as within 24 hours of the attack anyone who did provide help had been tipped off, could destroy any trace of any link and disappear and that is more than likely why the police investigation found nothing.

well i don't know that it does.

my dad, after doing his 25 years as a cop with war service retrained as nurse in mental hospitals.

during the 1970's - the idea that big mental hospitals were somehow morally wrong became current and it chimed in very well with the government plans to save money. dad became very concerned about the number of 'human time bombs' that were being released out onto the streets.

of course this was as nothing to the Thatcher big idea of 'care in the community'. during that time i did a short teaching contract in the Derby suburb of Mickleover - where there was a large mental hospital being dismantled. the local shopkeepers on the high street of Mickleover were distressed at the strange and sad patterns of behaviour of the people passing their shops.

mental illness affects many of us at sometime in life. we need to protect both the sufferers and the general public better.

A support network could not destroy all trace of its existence simply by getting tipped off - mobile phone, web search and email records? eyewitness recollections from neighbours?   sales receipts? airline bookings? employers' records of when holidays were taken? electricity meter readings to say when people were at home? border control logs?

On the other hand, all that could suddenly become invisible to the police if MI5 told them it had to be.

Truth is never binary. Truth is a value. Truth is emotional, it's fluid, and above all, it's human.

The authorities are aware of 23 000 such "unhinged" individuals. That is an overwhelming number. What could the authorities do to "sort them out?"

Would it be acceptable to round them all up in order to "sort them out?"

here we go again - 23 thousand, and he's got the papers to prove it.

reminds me a bit of the tramp, Davies in the Harold Pinter play No Fixed Abode - he was in a mess, cos he needed his papers.

take america - there anyone can get a gun. bonkers as Bugs Bunny..? Never mind, come into the gun fair and buy a sten gun, we take cards...

even over there, with a president nutty as Thornton's Praline Soft Centres - there aren't a lot of people walking that far on the wild side.

they could sort it. theres no need to be executing people who think their cell is full of chickens. we could certainly sort it, if we had the compassion and political will.

Al, you said, "Just an unhinged individual whom a caring society would have sorted out, and whom the authorities had been alerted about - but decided to do nothing for."

I explained why they had not been sorted out. There are just too many of them.

If that was not the problem, another problem would be that they do not want to be sorted out. They would have to be taken forcibly and remember that they are not known to have broken any laws. Happy with that?

Jim,
"The authorities are aware of 23 000 such "unhinged" individuals."
And how many arrests?


They can be arrested if there is evidence that they are planning an attack, and a number of attacks have been foiled and convictions made.

The Westminster killer, the Manchester bomber, and two of the London Bridge killers were known to the authorities, along with 23 000 others, but were guilty of no known crime before they struck.

i totally disagree. the point is that we just don't bloody care. we care nowt and we do nowt about

The remedial education inspector of schools in Brum where i started my career was a geezer called Tansley. He told us back then that the physical environment was causing brain damage in up to 70% of children in brum.
Then theres been the marvellous work done by Jamie OLiver who has campaigned tirelessly for us to stop poisoning our kids with cheap shit food.

There is so much we could do preventitively to stop mental illness in children.

We are overcrowded. We have a society with virtually no opportunities for many young people. The expensive toys of the rich are dangled in front of poor people 24 hours a day in advertising.

Education is a cut price cock up. Society is such a sodding mess that we have simply given up on training our own nurses, doctors, even bloody football players.

Small wonder we have a population going quietly mad.

There have always been periods in our history when towns and cities were extremely overcrowded (eg Victorian times, when people migrated to the cities for work), folk were very poor, children and indeed adults had to be content with 'cheap shit food', there were no opportunities for many young people save down the mines, in the mills or out in the fields. Before the NHS most people had no access to doctors, nurses or even a decent education. However I don't believe that the population was 'going quietly mad' then.

We need to investigate why certain individuals are mentally deranged and I wonder if it's because they feel alienated. By that I mean they are unsure of their identity or their place in society as a whole. They seek some sort of recognition, even if it means achieving it by violent and murderous acts.

The Dunblane killer had been rejected for youth work (for legitimate reasons) and felt ostracised and lonely. This provoked the terrible vengeance he wrought on that school. I'm sure the jihadi terrorists feel their religion is despised by the rest of us, and are drawn in by brain-washing fundamentalists as it's a better alternative to a powerless and fruitless life. Even mass-murderers have often been abused as children and have become dangerously hate-filled.

I am not advocating one gives killers cuddles. They need first and foremost to be securely detained, to protect us all. And I do think criminal justice must be brought to bear, and due punishment/containment meted out.

But we would do well to try to understand and get to the bottom of the root causes of anti-social acts and individual rebellion and violence.

It's basically the old 'mad or bad' dilemma isn't it?

Jim,
"There are just too many of them."
We don't know how many there are


We do not know how many there are, but police and security forces know of 20 000 sympathisers and another 3 000 considered to be an actual risk. The recent killers were just thought to be sympathisers.

Al,
and we do nowt about

What can be done faced with so many?

. We have a society with virtually no opportunities for many young people.

Most recent terrorists have received further education and many university education.
There have been engineers, doctors and other medical professionals.

As Senoufou says , we have always had issues of deprivation.
That does not explain the recent problem of radical Islamic terrorism.

I personally hold to the view that if a person is mentally ill (from whatever cause) they cannot be blamed for their actions, no matter how pernicious. If a person is, however, merely evil/wicked and misanthropic, then it's more appropriate to administer some form of punishment. The problem lies in being able to distinguish between the two. Psychiatrists and other experts have debated this ad infinitum over the years.
I don't believe one can be mad and bad simultaneously.

The Government appear never to have believed that otherwise they would never have cut the numbers of the police and the security services.
"Sympathisers" is a meaningless accusation - does that mean they are potential terrorists or just that they are pissed off with the abuse and racism that has been rained down on them for decades
There have ben no declarations of open support from any section of the Muslim community - on the contrary, these attacts have been condemned unreservedly by them
That condemnation merits support, not quotes of meaningless and unresearched figures which cast suspicion over all British Muslims

'Mad, bad and dangerous to know' was an assessment of Lord Byron by Lady Caroline Lamb, not a psychiatric specialist.

Having a Muslim husband, I'm very encouraged by the reactions of the mainstream Muslim organisations regarding the terrorist attacks. If they'd been in any way condoning them, no doubt my husband would have had some (totally unjustified) overt or covert condemnation from people around here.

Abedi is a good example.
Members of the Muslim community reported him speaking in support of terrorists and saying it was OK to be a suicide bomber.
That is what I meant by "sympathiser" and it does not get you onto the watch list of 3000, you are just one of the 20 000.

There have ben no declarations of open support from any section of the Muslim community - on the contrary, these attacts have been condemned unreservedly by them

I think that the most important statement from this affair came from Labour candidate Mike Katz:
"Driving Muslims away isn't going to make the [jihadist] problem go away; it's going to exacerbate the problem,"
The statement echoes that made by London Mayor, Tariq Sadiq when he described the aim of Isis was to "drive a wdge between Muslims and the rest of the world"
Conjuring up a threat of thousands of terrorist suspects from the Muslim communities when we have no idea what the police suspects are suspected of does just that - it creates an atmosphere of fear and mistrust towards a million or so people living in Britain and it plays right into the hands of Isis in making our Muslim communities 'The Enemy Within'

"To be honest their mental state is a total irrelevance."
In the matter of how they are dealt with it most certainly is not - if they turn out to be insane you cannot punish them as criminals; that would be a human rights abuse open to International prosecution.
It would also debase us as a society.
Shooting has to be the last resort, particularly when you recall the Aldwich Tube execution
"You must be as crazy as they are."
Isn't that a prejudgment of both the people we are talking about and those who happen to disagree with you?
Real 'rope over the nearest branch' stuff
"So we, and presumably government, should ignore what the police and security services tell us?"
No - we take it in the context is which it has been made.
The police don't know how many there are - the arrest rate over the years indicates that there aren't that many.
The term "jihadist" is meaningless in the way it is being used - it covers those who feel they have a grievance with the non-Muslim world right though to those who thought the West should have intervened in Syria and went off to support the fight against Assad, which doesn't make them extremists in any shape or form, just outraged human beings.
The Manchester bomber you cited brings in yet another category, a mentally disturbed man who was outraged about his friend being killed by a racist - SFA to do with Jihhandism, Islamism or any other type of ism.
This blanket use of such terms and linking all "suspects" together as a homogeneous bunch is doing massive damage to the fight against Isis and is closing down any chance of co-operation from the communities whose support and assistance we desperately need.
You have yet to respond to the fact that the Government did not appear to treat the assessed figures seriously when they cut down the numbers of police and security forces.
The very nature of Isis terrorism makes it essential that the fight must be more about making friends in the Muslim communities rather than alienating them by presenting them as suspects.

Turn your back for one minute and it just happens, Al :-) I never recall it being just a town like that though. Even in my teens back in the late 60s and early 70s it was a city buzzing with life and always contended with Birmingham for second city status. In the late 70s and 80s when I used to see a lot more live music, we used to go all over the place and the most interesting was the Irish sessions in Moss Side. The drug gangs were in evidence then and all sorts of shit used to go on in the street but places like the Ducie Arms behind the University and the Claremont were sacrosanct. We often got a few of the gang members in for a listen and one became a good banjo player!

"Jim, I do not regard the Daily Mail as a reputable news agency."
Course you don't Keith - when it doesn't firt your own personal agenda
The story appears elsewhere - I chose the Daily Mail as the newspaper least likely to invent a story that contradicts the establishment line
The killer's family and friends are far more likely to understand his motivation that that of outsiders who, if your claims are correct, underfunded and reduced (no comment on that yet) security forces dealing with thousands of "suspects".   
That the death of his mate might of been "gang related" (no evidence of that) is immaterial - the reason given was that he thought it was racist
You carefully tip-toe around that the slaughter that is going on in Syria was also mentioned - too close to home or an apologist of Assad's atrocities.
That slaughter is not in any way an excuse for the Manchester slaughter, but it does help to put the whole terrorism issue into context
It is Britain and the West's participation in and inaction that has led to the rise of Isis and it is long overdue that was recognised and dealt with - until it is, these attacks will be given an excuse to continue.

okay chapter and verse once again.
a friend of mine had a quid shop on the green at boston.
we were standing outside chatting to the shopkeeper - a man i had gone to school with some forty odd years previously - my wife and i.
a gang of oddly dressed men ran into the shop, helped themselves. ran out again -   arms full of loot.
i said to the shop owner why don't you call the police.
i didn't know they were eastern europeans - my wife has since told me that the shopkeeper told us this was the case.
the shopkeeper also told us - there was no point in notifying the police as the situation was out of control.
i would also point out the boston website, where remarks and complaints are now banned, because they would make up the bulk of posting - and no one is interested.

my observation has pissed you off and i sorry about that. however if people have stopped bothering reporting the crimes, because nothing ever gets done. it does offer an explanation as to why the statistics don't bear out my story,

whereas i do tend to think the brexit referendum figures for boston, my hometown do suggest i am not a dishonest racist or given to dishonest racist remarks - which seems to be the argument of insidious intent.

i can assure you that when my dad was a cop policing boston - it was not the general way of things.

sorry if my attempt at humour upset you. won't do it again.

Dave, I have been reading about Manchester gangs, and it appears that their activities are purely criminal and not racial.
Again I challenge you to identify any errors in my post.
It is clear that you know much less about this than you pretend.

Here the killing of Abdi's friend is described.
"A feud between two south Manchester gangs is behind the outbreak of violence in Moss Side which has resulted in two murders since December, police believe. Tensions between teenage members of the Moss Side Bloods - an offshoot of the infamous Doddington crew - and the Rusholme Crips have erupted over the last few months, according to a senior police source. "

"However, two murders and one attempted murder which took place in Moss Side since December are being linked to the feud. Abdul Wahab Hafidah, 18, was run over by a Vauxhall Corsa on Moss Lane East during the evening rush-hour before the occupants stabbed him in his neck and abdomen on May 12."
http://www.itv.com/news/granada/2016-05-25/gang-feud-behind-outbreak-of-violence-in-manchester/

Wiki,
"Analysts trace the high rates of gun crime in south Manchester, England, to acute social deprivation in an inner city area south of Manchester city centre stretching from Hulme through Moss Side to Longsight.[1] Whilst by the 1990s, the trade in illegal narcotics and firearms had given rise to Manchester's nickname of "Gunchester", by the late 2000s levels of gang related gun crime had greatly reduced in the area as a whole.[1][2]
The reasons for this transformation are not entirely clear but the heavy sentencing of main offenders, prohibiting the availability of firearms, community working and co-operation in tackling this kind of crime may have all played a role"

The intent of the gangs is not racist in the main. The are involved in criminal activities to make money. To insist the gangs have any sort of character of their own is pretty stupid. They comprise of individual criminals, quite often with no regard for human life. Do you think for one minute that they would stop at a racially aggravated crime?

Al,he was a murderer, but his motive was religious and his crime was the mass murder of strangers which sets him apart from your average murderer.

Dave,
main findings of the analysis were that:
• violence in general, gun violence and fatal shootings in particular are concentrated in specific small areas of South Manchester
• victims of gun violence in South Manchester are mainly young, black or mixed race males, who themselves have criminal records
• those who have been victims of shootings are at increased risk of being a victim again
• perpetrators of serious gun violence in South Manchester are mainly young black or mixed race males, who have criminal records

• about 60 per cent of shootings are thought to gang related
• there are strong social norms (in particular in providing evidence in court) inhibiting co-operation with police enquiries into gang-related shootings, which undermine successful prosecution of offenders
• alliances are sometimes formed between South Manchester gangs, but conflict is endemic and easily triggered
• gangs in South Manchester are loosely turf-based
• there are significant differences in the origins, activities, and organisation of the four main South Manchester gangs known to the police, though members of all the gangs are involved in a wide range of criminal behaviour

• gang-related criminal behaviour includes drug-related offences, but only as one element of a patchwork of violent and non-violent crime
• gang membership is not just about criminality; for some young males it incorporates a credible lifestyle choice
• gang-membership comprises a mix of same-age local friendship groups, blood relatives and recruits
• the carrying of firearms by gang-members is part protective, and part symbolic, though they are also sometimes used in the commission of violent crime

"A feud between two south Manchester gangs is behind the outbreak of violence in Moss Side which has resulted in two murders since December, police believe. Tensions between teenage members of the Moss Side Bloods - an offshoot of the infamous Doddington crew - and the Rusholme Crips have erupted over the last few months, according to a senior police source. "
Give your sources that those gangs were involved and for their makeup.

The friend was a gang member and his killing was part of a gang feud and not racist.
ITV link I provided.
"are being linked to the feud. Abdul Wahab Hafidah, 18, was run over by a Vauxhall Corsa on Moss Lane East during the evening rush-hour before the occupants stabbed him in his neck and abdomen on May 12."

From your own link Jim,
"A family friend also alleged that it was the murder of Abedi's teenage friend that caused him to kill.
The teenager was run over and stabbed in Manchester in May 2016 in what is believed to have been a gangland killing.

Jim, once again you are proved wrong and I right.

"Abdul Wahab Hafidah, 18, was run over by a Vauxhall Corsa on Moss Lane East during the evening rush-hour before the occupants stabbed him in his neck and abdomen on May 12.
The violence began on December 30 when a 22-year-old man was blasted in the chest on Salisbury Street. He was lucky to survive.
Then on March 22, Ahmed Mohammed - known locally as 'Mudz' - was fatally stabbed on Crondall Street.
Police have previously said all three incidents are linked to a feud between 'established criminal groups' in Moss Side and Rusholme.
The M.E.N.(Manchester Evening News) understands those groups are the Moss Side Bloods and the Rusholme Crips"

"25 May 2017 - 15H20
Suspected Manchester bomber had 'desire for revenge'
      
inShare

© AFP | People lay flowers in tribute to the victims of the May 22 bomb attack in Manchester in northern England
TRIPOLI (AFP) -
Suspected Manchester suicide bomber Salman Abedi had expressed a desire to avenge the killing of a friend in the British city last year, a source close to his family said Thursday.

His friend, also of Libyan descent, died after being stabbed by British youths in Manchester in May 2016, the source said on condition of anonymity.

"That incident stirred up a sense of anger among young Libyans in Manchester and especially Salman, who clearly expressed his desire for revenge," he said.
"We were able to calm the young people in the neighbourhoods who felt they were targeted... as Muslims," he said. "But it seems that Salman did not forget the incident."
You presented this as warring gangs in which Abedi's mate was involved - if it was not a racist incident, Abedi believed it was and it was part of his twisted logic that incited hi to do what he did.
You have first denied that the sister's statement was never made and that I invented it and then moved on to claim the killing was related to gangland warfare - naming two gangs who had no part in any of it.
The frightening thing about all of tehse acts of terrorism is that they are not being carried out by criminal gangs but, in the main, normal, often intelligent young people who have been driven into the arms of Isis and other fanatics because they believe they have been rejected by British society
If you care to check the date of the killing, it happened right in the middle of the Brexit campaign when your mate Farrago was holding up his racist poster depicting hordes of Asians "invading" Britain - that is what makes it the possible racist attack Abadi believed it to be

The witnesses believed the attack to be racist - the police "calmed them down" - there is no indication that they proved it wasn't and there is no such proof
There certainly could not have been immediately after the attack and, as nobody has ever been convicted of the crime, there is still no evidence of why it happened

"Raggy doesn't seem to thing the motive was "racial"."
So what?
The killer believed the attack on his mate was racial - he coupled his belief with the slaughter that was happening in Syria and carried out his attack - that is the indisputable fact that Keith denied for reasons best known to himself
Whather the killer's beliefs were correct is immaterial - his actions were inhuman
For some strange reason, Keith has used this horrific event to mount a campaign on racism
He has first denied the facts - the sister's statement being an example, then he systematically invented a non existent scenarion, ninking the original murder to a feud between two Afro-Carribean gangs
Since then he has busted his balls absolving racism from the killing, despite the fact that it was a turf war event between two ethnic groups, Afro Caribbean and Muslim
This is a totally unacceptable defence of racism
Indigenous terrorism is rising at an alarming rate in Britain.
In the wake of Brexit, the arrest of white terrorists rose by 66% So far this year, far-right terrorist incidents up to March accounted for 37% of all terrorist arrests, compared with 26% in the previous year.Keith's manic defence of an incident which might or might not have been racist only fuels this rise
"But it was not a racist killing, and all Mancunians knew that."
For Christ sake, what kind of madman could make such a hysterically insane statement - how the **** could "all Mancunians" know such a thing, and if they did, who has ever asked them?

"QUOTE ME, LIAR!"
I just have done
Can we just clear up this claim of yours that the police wrote this off as not being racist
Following the attack they did so in order to calm things down - very laudable
Since then they have described the murder as a gang dispute, with no comment whatever of the cultural make-up of the warring gangs - it is conceivable that this was a racist attack and a gang killing - the two are not exclusive.
If the fact that these gangs are Muslim and Afro Caribbean have no bearing on the attack, that needs to be stated clearly and perhaps THE BRITISH POLICE are the least qualified to make such a statement

Another lie.
If it is true, QUOTE YOURSELF LIAR!

Now you accuse the GMP of lying about the crime to the people of Manchester.
Do you think the local media and people of Manchester would accept that?
Of course not.
The GMP knew it to be a gang feud. The gangsters would have killed the rival gangster on their turf whatever his ethnicity.

Can you name any single person or news agency who claims any racist component to the crime, or is it just you and Dave for your own political agendas?

The GMP know that it is easier to get a conviction based on gang membership that it is to get a race hate crime conviction. They extensively use joint enterprise provisions to secure convictions that could otherwise be unsafe. Do you think they are stupid enough to proceed with a prosecution for race hate when they are almost guaranteed a conviction by using the gang card?

And, yes, I could name a number of people who know that there are racist components in gang crimes but as they are serving police officers I will not do so.

"If the fact that these gangs are Muslim and Afro Caribbean have no bearing on the attack" - Jim Carroll

And here we have Raggy:

"let me assure you that gang were not just located in South Manchester, nor were they exclusive to any one group of people. Salford and Cheetham Hill were particular areas "controlled" by gangs and trust me on this one they were not of Afro-Caribbean or Asian descent." - Raggy

So it would seem that the gangs are NOT Muslim and Afro-Caribbean and that Jom has his "facts" wrong (Not unusual) and that the GMP were correct in describing the motive for this murder as being criminal gang related as borne out by the evidence - i.e. a large group on gang members from one gang deliberately pursued a person known to be a member of a rival gang ran him over and then stabbed him in the neck and killed him. The reason he was pursued and killed was because he was a member of a rival gang. It had nothing to do with his religion or race.

"Now you accuse the GMP of lying about the crime to the people of Manchester."
The state has always lied when it suits them to do so "being economical with the truth" has become an accepted stock phrase.
You have been given the situation with the police, you must know that so long after the Stephen Lawrence killing, the Police authorities still accept that it has not moved on from the institutional racism it found itself guilty of all those years ago.
I told you why I believed they described the killing as not being racist at the time (and described it as laudable)
Th local (and national) media invariably side with the authorities in matters such as this - pioneering journalism is the domain of the "leftie" press and the killing of one young man is so commonplace nowadays that it doesn't merit such what with what else is happening in the world today
You choose to ignore it and continue with your defence of racism
Your hysteria on this matter is becoming disturbing so I'll leave you defending your racism

That is shite Dave. To get a conviction they have to prove that the accused did it, not his motivation.
Gang membership is not even a crime.

Joint enterprise requires them to be present and involved during the murder. Gang membership is irrelevant.

Joint enterprise requires them to be present and involved during the murder. Gang membership is irrelevant."

Do a google search for a well researched academic paper on the subject. Maybe using the phrase

More than three-quarters of the black and minority ethnic prisoners reported that the prosecution claimed that they were members of a 'gang', compared to only 39 percent of white prisoners. This apparent 'gang' affiliation' is used to secure convictions, under joint enterprise provisions, for offences they have not committed.

Enjoy your research.

Jim has, quite rightly, pointed out that the police,including the GMP, are not entirely innocent of wrong doing at times. But even if that were not the case no one has said that they are lying over this case. Just that they chose the easier and more certain option when they prosecuted.

If I amy I will address one of your points though.

Neither gang targets ethnic groups, but they do target each other.

The individual gangs generally stick to the same ethnic groups. So by targeting another gang, they cannot help but target an ethnic group. Your statement is like saying that Abedi targeted concert goers so he did not target anyone else. Can you just not comprehend that it is not as simple as only targeting one group?

""why he did it or what he is.""
No - I was discussing the reasons that have been given for what radicalised them - you would omit any possible reasons that fit your agenda
I put his sister's statement up - you claimed it hadn't appeared in the press (didn't suit your particular agenda)
You have no more an idea of whether there was a racist element to the killing and you have refused to acknowledge the racial/cultural makeup of the two gangs.
That is enough to lay claim to a racist element to the killing.
Since then, the reason we are here has been totally forgotten by you ahd you have busted a gut trying to prove the unproveable - I wonder why, unless it is down to your own racism
Some gangs in Manchester, as Dave has said, are racially divides and motivated - i know that from having lived there and I assume Dave knows the same - what do you base your hysterical claim on (you have now reached the point of high hysteria)?
You won't even acknowledge the known corruption in the police and how much they are distrusted.   
Since the Lawrence murder, the police have been known to be institutionally racist and not so long ago, one of their commanders have admitted that they haven't moved on since.
I don't know if the killing was racially motivated - that is unimportant - what is important is that the bomber thought it was and said as much to friends and family.
Racism is an important issue in our relations with the immigrant communities - I have little doubt that it is a major factor in the rise in disaffection of Muslim young people who are no longer prepared to accelt the persecution, the prejudice, the 'Paki-bashing' mentality of some of our indigenous low-life.
This is the reported situation in Britain today (from Wiki)
"Although native British gangs are still active in the capital, There are a number of historical Asian gangs in London too, many that were initially formed to protect their local communities in response to racist attacks from the native white population, gangs such as the Brick Lane Massive. In the past decade, Tamil gang violence namely in Croydon and Wembley have been active such as the "Wembley Boys" and the "Tamil Snake Gang.[60] Tamil Hindu gangs in London are also featured as one of the many major ethnic gangs in Ross Kemp's documentary on London Gangs"
This is a worrying situation and ignoring it with the vehemence you are doing (Christ only knows why) is dangerous
Why not take your Little Englander head out of your arse and wake uo to the fct that gang culture is a threat to our well-being and our policemen do tell lies when it sits them
You were quick enough to accuse the police of covering up sexual abuse when it suited your Islamophobic agenda to do so - why not here?

Not true. I said, "no UK news agency has carried such a story."

I quoted a French news agency, IN THE SAME SHORT POST IF YOU READ IT TO THE END!

You have no more an idea of whether there was a racist element to the killing

No, but The Greater Manchester Police knew there was not.
Your only answer to that simple fact is that they are lying!

Really?

They just say an anonymous friend said it, and one is just copied from the other anyway.

The Manchester police have no right to make any such claim without publishing details - these are two gangs from different ethnic communities which, as is pointed out, now is regarded as a racist commonplace
The fact that you refuse to respond to this and the racist and dishonest nature of the place proves that you are only interested in 'winning something' and/or protecting racists

"Who cares what you think?"
You do apparently - enough to make my quoting a statement from associates of the killer into a a quest for the Holy Grail.
Whoever said it - they were nearer to his reasoning than you and the untrustworthy police force you are relying on.
The implications of the statement are far too important it suppress, as you are attempting to do in your efforts to protect the good name of the corner of Little England you appear to occupy
Racism has always been an issue in Britain - a survey some years ago suggested that a quarter of the British people hold and have expressed racist opinions.
There was a sharp rise in racist incidents a year ago, following Brexit - there has been a five-fold increase in Islamophobic attacks since Manchester - the killing has already started in North London
If we don't want a race-war on our hands we are going to have to build some bridges and win some hearts and minds - bringing communities together is one of the ways to do that
Apologists for racism appear to have chosen their side already.
If the question of racism has been raised in this case, in needs examining seriously, not dismissing, as you have.

("We are a deeply racist country." Racist signs "are common throughout Britain." Obedi's friend was killed by British racists.)

If the "friend" was foreign he probably would not know much about Manchester gangs, so it is a reasonable question to ask, like whether he/she is a grown-up or not.

If he/she could not follow British news because of location or language, they would have little understanding of what happened in Manchester.

All the suggestions I made had a bearing on how reliable as a source of information he/she was.
Nothing to do with race or racism.
That is always what you shout when you lose an argument.

You are obsessed with it.
"Britain is a deeply racist country."
Racist anti-Traveller signs "are common throughout Britain."
Abedi's friend was "killed in a racist attack."

There was no racist killing.
There was no credible evidence for one and hard evidence against from the police and prosecution service.
I was right to challenge the false claim.

For eleven solid days Jim and Dave argued against me.
I had to endure personal attacks on my honesty, my morality and even my faith, but I was right and they were wrong.

From The Sunday Times

    A source with knowledge of the police investigation said that Abedi is believed to have accessed videos online containing information about how to construct various devices, including those using TATP. Abedi downloaded material from a range of online sources, including the dark web, and the YouTube information was one part of a wider online picture, it is understood.

    After the Manchester attacks a 22-minute video on YouTube and Facebook emerged, called "Jihadi ideas for lone lions". It provided instructions on how to make the type of explosive used by Abedi.

    The video, produced by Ibn Taymiyyah, a Gaza-based group that supports Isis, showed a chemist making the explosive from scratch using items such as a funnel and coffee filter. "The filling can be used in closed places like restaurants and buses," the video says. "After the explosion, it's better to directly enter the place and eliminate those who are still alive, Inshallah." It has been taken down.
