Ben Kinsella

NEWS ITEM

BenKinsella_794153c Some kind of closure has finally been granted to the grieving friends and family of Ben Kinsella after he was brutally stabbed to death on a London street. This has led to the usual condemnation of knife culture but has more so led me to thinking about what seems to be different fighting cultures amongst each racial group. Now I will say that this is a very general post and I don’t want to cause or perpetuate racial stereotypes. However it is blatantly clear that in my line of work different cultures brawl in different ways.

Black youths tend to favour knives and guns, luckily there are very few shooters on the streets on Smalltown.

With our Kurdish and Middle Eastern friends we seem to see a lot of iron bars and blunt instruments.

The Asian gangs sometimes use baseball bats or sticks but tend to remain unarmed and use their belts if needed.

Polish trouble tends to come along with knives.

The Chinese weapon of choice seems to be the meat cleaver, clichéd but seemingly true?

White lads go for whatever is near, normally a bottle though they have been known to carry brass knuckles.

Weapons seem to be the last resort of the coward, sadly in Smalltown even without weapons the biggest threat is group action. We have had some very nasty beatings even without the use of weapons and I don’t think that Knives will ever be the problem. Its the people holding them.

RIP Ben, I’d like to hope that your death will make somebody somewhere sit and and see sense. I think however that there is sadly no sense for the senseless.
