Teenage asylum seeker brutally attacked in Croydon

Post by Thorin on Sat Apr 01, 2017 4:30 pm

First topic message reminder :

A teenage asylum seeker is fighting for his life after a "brutal attack" by a gang in south London in what police are treating as a hate crime.


The 17-year-old was waiting at a bus stop with two friends in Croydon, when he was set upon by about eight youths. They asked him where he was from before chasing him down the road and attacking him.
The Met Police said the boy suffered serious head injuries and is in a critical condition in hospital.
His two friends escaped with minor injuries.


The attack happened in Shrublands Avenue at 23:40 BST on Friday. No arrests have been made.

If they can't speak English then it is not racist to say they can't speak English...

Didge has said that earlier on this thread...!

I think his knickers are getting so twisted that it's cutting off the blood flow to his brain!!!

How odd to claim that saying someone can't speak English is racist. scratch

Also, not being able to speak English doesn't necessarily depend on what race someone is.

By those sort of views, very much so.

Again how can he state whether of not they can speak English?

Personal experience?
Where is the evidence for that?
Someone anonymous on the comments section?

Come on Tommy - If they have an aversion to nappies being thrown out of windows, they must be far right. Laughing

I want to know where is the evidence for this claim?

You cant provide any, so you want me to condemn something you cannot prove happened?

How odd indeed.

If you have evidence of this happening, I will happily condemn for you Rags

The suspects are black. Not that this makes a difference to the attack. But people seem to assume that any attacks on migrants are perpetrated by white people.

Trust odious Dianne Abbot to get in on the act and make a complete fool of herself once more. How she can blame this sort of thuggery on the Tories and Brexit is beyond belief.

'Diane Abbott was denounced as 'sickening' after she blamed Brexit and the Tories for the gang attack on the teenage asylum seeker in Croydon.
Labour's Shadow Home Secretary sought political gain while the 17-year-old Kurdish Iranian was fighting for his life in hospital.
After the brutal assault in South London, Miss Abbott blamed the Conservatives for the incident, saying: 'Sadly, this is not an isolated incident but part of a sustained increase in hate crimes that this Tory Government is yet to offer any effective response to.
'With Right-wing politicians across the world scapegoating migrants, refugees and others for their economic problems, we are seeing a deeply worrying rise in the politics of hate.
'We must make clear that there is no place for anti-foreigner myths, racism and hate in our society.' Miss Abbott then went on Sky News to suggest Brexit had been a factor. 'I'm not surprised in the attack because we have seen a rise in hate crime and anti-migrant feeling, particularly since Brexit,' she said. 'Much of the Brexit campaign was around fear of migrants, this now is being reflected in the rise in hate crime.
'I'm hearing anecdotal evidence of people being shouted at and abused in the street. I've not been attacked, but friends and family members have been shouted at in the street.'
Chris Philp, the Tory MP for Croydon South, said it was 'despicable' to blame the referendum for the attack.
'This is a sickening attempt by Diane Abbott to politicise what is an awful crime that has been condemned by people across the political spectrum,' he said. 'What she seems to be doing is to attribute blame for the rise in hate crime to political parties – that is completely unjustified and unreasonable.'

There is some truth in that, as Tommy was pointing out yesterday. Mention gangs of thugs, pubs, attacks on immigrants or asylum seekers,  and I do believe some people assume the thugs are white Brits.
People like Dianne Abbot encourage this myth.

I don't think anyone else here mentioned  the attackers colour Tommy, I'm sure some people did presume the way the media reported this but it wasn't mentioned on here.
And it seems he was targeted because he is an asylum seeker, at least that's what the police believe.

The attack details are horrible, the poor man was repeatedly kicked and punched in the head  by this gang as he lay helpless  on the floor. Many people stood around watching.
Its despicable.

5 people have so far been charged.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-39479476

"Five people have been charged over an attack on a teenage asylum seeker in south London, police say.
The Kurdish-Iranian 17-year-old was approached at a bus stop before being chased and subjected to a "brutal attack" by up to 30 people.

He was left with a fractured skull and a blood clot on his brain after the assault in Croydon on Friday.

The five were charged with violent disorder, while one was also charged with racially aggravated GBH.
In total, 11 people have been arrested and officers are trying to locate five others. They have also released CCTV images of two men they would like to speak to about what they describe as a racially motivated attack.
All those arrested are aged between 17 and 24."

Looks like I was 100% correct...!



I don't think anyone else here mentioned  the attackers colour Tommy, I'm sure some people did presume the way the media reported this but it wasn't mentioned on here.
And it seems he was targeted because he is an asylum seeker, at least that's what the police believe.

The attack details are horrible, the poor man was repeatedly kicked and punched in the head  by this gang as he lay helpless  on the floor. Many people stood around watching.
Its despicable.

5 people have so far been charged.

"Five people have been charged over an attack on a teenage asylum seeker in south London, police say.
The Kurdish-Iranian 17-year-old was approached at a bus stop before being chased and subjected to a "brutal attack" by up to 30 people.

He was left with a fractured skull and a blood clot on his brain after the assault in Croydon on Friday.

The five were charged with violent disorder, while one was also charged with racially aggravated GBH.
In total, 11 people have been arrested and officers are trying to locate five others. They have also released CCTV images of two men they would like to speak to about what they describe as a racially motivated attack.
All those arrested are aged between 17 and 24."

It was more like a mob.

And he was specifically targeted for some reason... if there were so many attackers then his friends didn't escape with luck... they were not targeted...

Why they did that is open to much speculation. Was some comment passed? An insult or slur? Who started it? I know that some people don't need any provocation to start a fight, or pick on someone, but perhaps something happened to incur the wrath of so many people. Either way it's horrible. There's nothing worse than a lynch mob.

There is some truth in that, as Tommy was pointing out yesterday. Mention gangs of thugs, pubs, attacks on immigrants or asylum seekers,  and I do believe some people assume the thugs are white Brits.
People like Dianne Abbot encourage this myth.

That's pretty much what I said yesterday.

So they're not charging them with attempted murder after all? The charges are too lenient.

Drugs?
Gangs?

Sounds like there was a specific reason rather than a random 'racist' attack.

They should be charged with attempted murder and agree with Rags, the charges are too lenient.

What pictures of 'whites' Raggs?

But none of the media made any such claim and it was Tommy the only poster here claiming that the media were insinuating that the attackers were white British.
I mean Dianne abbot is racist herself, so she is hardly the backing for Tommy's claim, when some will always accuse white Brits.

Tommy made some very poor accusations throughout this and failed to wait for the facts.

Maybe they'll charge some of them with attempted murder. The arrests yesterday were on the grounds of suspicion of attempted murder I think.

It's not right that it should be "assault" or whatever.

I agree that the charges are far too lenient.
I have seen pics of black and white people connected with this attack, I don't think it makes any difference what they are tbh, they are cowards who attack mob handed whatever their shade.
