Martiri europei: Andrew Young

Martiri europei: Andrew Young

Scandalo ha provocato nel Regno Unito la decisione del giudice Keith Cutler di infliggere solo quattro anni di pena all'afro-britannico Lewis Gill [foto sotto], dopo l'uccisione, con un diretto violentissimo al volto, del quarantenne Andrew Young, affetto dalla sindrome di Asperger. Scandalo che potrebbe portare ad un intervento da parte del Ministero di Giustizia.

Da parte del giudice, invece, nessuna parola, nonostante Cutler non sia nuovo a strane benevolenze, specie nei confronti di allogeni o immigrati violenti, come nel 2004, quando all'italo-britannico Louis Moroncini diede solo 18 mesi di custodia cautelare per una aggressione a colpi di mazza di legno contro una ragazza, oppure, sempre nel 2004, diede solo due anni di pena all'afgano Abdel Atif Gholam, che investì e uccise un motociclista, viaggiando in auto contromano e senza patente ed assicurazione. Per non parlare dei 20 secondi di silenzio in memoriam imposti nel recente (chiusosi da poche settimane) processo per la morte del criminale meticcio Mark Duggan, ucciso durante un'operazione della polizia a Tottenham.

Cutler [foto sotto], che vive in una lussuosa villa, da un milione di sterline, nella campagna inglese, evidentemente ama più i suoi deliri, anzi deliqui, politicamente corretti, che non la legge come imposizione di un ordine, prima ancora che ogni altro ragionamento.

Nulla di strano che rinnovi tali deliri. Il resto della vicenda è poi condito da squallide prese di posizione, come quel "non capisco tutto questo clamore" da parte dell'indifferente madre dell'assassino Lewis Gill, Sherron O’Hagan, oppure i tentativi da parte della difesa di sviare rispetto alle colpe dell'omicida. Perché sia il patetico tentativo di imputare ad una ipotetica espressione razzista dell'ucciso la reazione di Gill, sia il tentativo di lasciar intendere che Gill e l'amico Victor Ibitoye temessero che Young fosse armato sono solo furbate. Nel primo caso, l'unica cosa da dire è: se anche fosse? E poi, aveva fosse torto Young a pretendere che Ibitoye, in bici, si togliesse dal marciapiede, lasciando passare i pedoni? Che poi Young potesse essere armato, basta vedere il video circolante [VIDEO], per capire che l'ucciso teneva la mano in tasca solo all'inizio, quando si stava ancora avvicinando al punto preciso in cui poi morrà, ma nel momento del dialogo con i due allogeni ciò non era più vero.

In ultimo, l'assassino Lewis Gill era già conosciuto dalle forze dell'ordine per rapina. Il giudice Cutler ha riconosciuto la palese differenza fisica tra l'assassino e la vittima, visibilmente più debole, affermando che il primo non poteva non esserne altrettanto cosciente. Nonostante tutto questo, l'esito (momentaneo) lo conosciamo. Ma finché si tollerano (anche) i Cutler di questo mondo, non se ne uscirà se non... con altri mezzi.

  • Killing a man? 'It's no big deal': A sneer from mother of thug who punched Asperger's sufferer, as Attorney General is deluged with calls to increase sentence (Rebecca Evans + Jack Doyle, The Daily Mail, 26 febbraio 2014):
The mother of a thug who killed an autistic man  dismissed his crime as ‘no big deal’ last night. In a display of callous indifference, Sherron O’Hagan said she did not know ‘what all the fuss was about’. Her son Lewis Gill killed Andrew Young with a single punch in an unprovoked attack captured on CCTV. He was given just four years but a public outcry may lead to a longer sentence. The Attorney General says he will examine whether the jail term was too short. Dominic Grieve’s office was deluged with more than 110 complaints within hours of the case becoming public. Mr Young’s mother Pamela has dismissed the sentence as an ‘absolute joke’ – Gill could even be free within two years. But Mrs O’Hagan, speaking from her home in Sutton, South London, yesterday insisted her son was a ‘good kid’. The 41-year-old mother of three told the Mail: ‘It was just an accident. It’s not a big deal. This will all be forgotten tomorrow. He’s my son, what do you want me to say? He didn’t mean to kill him and that’s that.’ Mrs O’Hagan, who was not married to Gill’s father Richard McKenzie, added: ‘This story will be the lining of chips tomorrow. I just don’t understand what all the fuss is about.’ Gill, a convicted robber, punched 40-year-old Mr Young to the ground on a busy Bournemouth street on November 6 last year. Shocking CCTV footage shows him calmly walking forward to deliver the deadly punch after Mr Young reprimanded his friend for cycling on the pavement. Mr Young, who had Asperger’s and the mental age of a 14-year-old, fell back and cracked his head on the pavement. He died the next day with his 71-year-old mother at his bedside. Gill, 20, pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to four-and-a-half years by Judge Keith Cutler at Salisbury Crown Court. With half his sentence served on licence, and allowing for time already served, he could be out in just two years. The sentence was condemned by Victims’ Commissioner Baroness Newlove, whose husband Garry was killed by a gang vandalising his car. ‘I’m appalled by this disgraceful act of violence – my thoughts go out to the victim’s family and friends at this time,’ she said. ‘It’s entirely right that the sentence will be reviewed for this shocking crime. ‘I know how traumatic it is to go through the courts as a victim – when you are already so hurt and vulnerable. That’s why I urge everyone involved in this case to put victims first in the pursuit of justice.’ The Young family’s MP, Tobias Ellwood, welcomed Mr Grieve’s review as well. ‘It would be wrong for me to make a judgment about how long the sentence ought to be, it is not the role of an MP to do that,’ he said. ‘But the message needs to go out that this kind of behaviour should not be tolerated. I would be the first to advocate people standing up and speaking out when they see wrongdoing in their community and that is one of the reasons that a sentence like this is totally out of line.’ Mr Grieve has until March 21 to decide whether he thinks the sentence was too soft. If – as seems likely – he does, the case will go to the Court of Appeal where three senior judges could lengthen it. The Daily Mail website was also deluged with criticism of the sentencing judge, Keith Cutler, who decided Gill did not intend to cause ‘grievous harm’. One wrote that it was a ‘sad day for justice’ and another demanded that ‘criminal friendly judges’ should be held accountable to the public and another One reader commented: ‘The man is clearly dangerous and violent. Even if he didn’t intend to cause death he punched someone who was clearly no threat to him and who made no threatening gestures of violence back. ‘Isn’t it about time the people were heard? These lenient sentences are harmful to the decent members of society.’A statement issued on behalf of the Young family said: ‘When we first heard that Gill was given a four year sentence we thought it was too short and expected him to get more than that. It’s ridiculous. He (Gill) didn’t mean to kill him so a life sentence would have been extreme but he deserves more than what he was given. ‘Looking at his criminal record he is obviously a trouble maker and we were hoping he would get about seven or eight years.‘A sentence so short might mean that he could do something else dangerous in the future.’

But Judge stays silent over short sentence

The judge who sent Lewis Gill to prison for just four years did not respond to criticism of what has been called an ‘extremely lenient’ sentence. Keith Cutler, 63, refused to discuss the case yesterday at Winchester Crown Court where he spent the day hearing a trial into an alleged conspiracy to commit blackmail. The Mail was told by a court usher: ‘He has refused to talk about the case.’ The judge has however previously spoken about his approach to sentencing. He has said in an interview: ‘Every offence has its different features, every mitigation has its own strengths and all those elements are brought into sentencing.’ He added: ‘Some cases get to you. When I come out of court, I say “That’s it. I’ve made my decision.  If I am wrong the Court of Appeal will deal with it”.’ The father of two, who is a lay canon at Salisbury Cathedral, has also defended his sometimes controversial approach to the legal process. This was most notable in his handling of the inquest into the shooting of Mark Duggan, where he held a 20-second silence to commemorate the gangster’s death. The judge admits that he enjoys having the power to show leniency but he reacted angrily to ministerial criticism of ‘soft’ sentencing back in 2006 when he was secretary of the Council of Circuit Judges. In October 2004, he handed teenager Louis Moroncini an 18-month supervision order for striking Beverley Brennan round the head with a 4ft wooden pole during a robbery. Judge Cutler told the defendant: ‘You know, and I know, that you richly deserve custody and you would have got three years. But you must know that if you fail me and go wrong on this order, you will be back before the courts.’ After the hearing, nursery nurse Mrs Brennan said: ‘When the judge was passing the sentence, I had to leave the courtroom because I started having a panic attack. ‘I know he’s got a curfew, but I’ll still have that worry that he could go out.’ In September 2004, Abdel Atif Gholam, 29, an Afghan refugee who had no licence or insurance when he veered on to the wrong side of the road and killed a motorcyclist, was jailed by Judge Cutler for just two years. The judge lives in a sprawling six-bedroom detached house in the heart of the English countryside. Situated off a quiet lane, the £1million property offers picturesque views and has a well-tended garden packed with tall trees and ancient woodland.


  •  VIDEO: Shocking moment man dies from single punch to the head in unprovoked attack (Dion Dassanayake, The Daily Express, 25 febbraio 2014):
CCTV footage, revealed in court, shows Andrew Young falling into the road and not moving after a sudden blow to the face from Lewis Gill.

Shockingly the 20-year-old attacker will be freed in around two years – a move that has been greeted with outrage from Mr Young’s heartbroken family.

Seconds before he was fatally struck, Mr Young had been involved in an argument with Gill’s friend Victor Ibitoye, who he told not to cycle on the pavement.

Yob Gill then took offence and punched him once in the face before walking away without a care for his victim.

Mr Young, who suffered from Aspergers Syndrome, was rushed to hospital in Bournemouth but died the following day from head injuries, with his mother Pamela at his side.

Gill admitted one charge of manslaughter at Salisbury Crown Court and was jailed for just four-and-a-half years.

Today Mr Young’s mother reacted with fury, saying: "I sat with him when he died. I wish that awful man who took my son away had pleaded not guilty so he would have got a longer sentence.

"The sentence is an absolute joke. I'm a committed Christian but I think that if someone takes a life they should be prepared to forfeit their own."

The attack happened at 4.25pm on November 6 last year outside a Tesco Express in Charminster, Bournemouth.

Mr Young was able to speak several language but had the social skills of a 14-year-old because he suffered from Aspergers Syndrome.

The court heard Mr Young told Mr Ibitoye during the argument that riding his bike on the pavement was a 'dangerous activity'.

Mrs Young said: "He was very particular because of his Asperger's and he wouldn't have liked seeing someone riding a bicycle on the pavement because it was dangerous."

She said her son often attended Sunday mass at the St Edmund Champion Church and was a member of the naval section of the Combined Cadet Force.

Taxi Driver Simon Scott, who knew Mr Young for six years, said he "wouldn't hurt a fly".

He said: "Andrew was always friendly and polite and often struck up conversations with strangers at the bus stop near the taxi rank.

"Andrew was gentle and wouldn't hurt a fly."

A post-mortem revealed that Mr Young had no injuries to indicate he tried to defend himself.

The court heard Mr Ibitoye did not know what Gill was about to do and cycled away from Mr Young after the argument.

Prosecutor Kerry Maylin said: "The defendant claims he was worried about Andrew Young because he thought he was being menacing.

"He said Andrew Young put his hand to his pocket and he thought he was going to pull out a knife or a gun."

The court heard Gill punched Mr Young after he allegedly made a racist remark.

Judge Keith Cutler said Mr Young did not represent a threat to Gill.

He said: "You are a powerfully built young man.

"You must have known that it was going to cause a significant injury and, very sadly, it did."

Gill was also sentenced last Friday to two, three months sentences for the attack while on a suspended sentence for robbery and for handling stolen goods.

The four jail term along with the two three month sentences will run consecutively.

  2. Purtroppo qui si fa la storia, i popoli Europei sono ormai decadenti al punto da dimenticare Lepanto o Vienna. C'era un tempo in cui le invasioni erano combattute, oggi vengono favorite e non solo, ci insegnano anche che l'uomo bianco era il male per via del colonialismo. L'invasione in massa dell'Africa o degli altri Continenti da parte dei bianchi era un male indiscusso, quando gli altri popoli invadono l'Europa lo definiscono un "arricchimento culturale". In ogni caso noi siamo ormai con la testa piena di merda e film, pensiamo che dal nulla sbucherà chissà quale eroe per mettere fine al male e alle ingiustizie, peccato solo che la vita vera NON è la televisione. Il primo nemico degli Europei sono gli Europei stessi, ma d'altronde come glielo spieghi che mancano pochi secoli prima della nostra estinzione? Guardano i film ambientati nel futuro in cui la specie umana (Sisi specie, non razza, ma vaglielo a spiegare) è composta da un bel calderone tra cui i bianchi, quando la realtà è che noi abbiamo geni recessivi e nella cosiddetta "società multirazziale" siamo destinati a scomparire.

  3. Già, sconti di pena a Kabobo. Si possono fare stragi al mattino, fino a spaccare il piccone (tre poveretti uccisi, più die feriti) e avere una magsitratura serva e xenofila che si limita a questo:
