This is a question I witnessed a crime

Freddy Woo writes, "A group of us once staggered home so insensible with drink that we failed to notice someone being killed and buried in a shallow grave not more than 50 yards away. A crime unsolved to this day."

Have you witnessed a crime and done bugger all about it? Or are you a have-a-go hero?
Whatever. Tell us about it...

Yet another victim of knife crime
Most of the entries for this QOTW have been pretty depressing so far. Not wanting to change a winning formula here is my effort. It concerns the latest teenage victims of knife crime in our historic capital.

You probably read about it on the news, or saw it on television - two teenage boys stabbed (one fatally) in Edmonton, North London. This incident occurred a mere 5 minutes walk from where I live. If some of the more lurid tabloid headlines are to be believed, they were filmed on mobile phones whilst they lay dying.

I didn’t witness the crime but on the day of the stabbing my bus got diverted from its usual route because the police had closed off the entire road. My initial reactions were gas leak? Fire? Bomb? Alas no, just another black kid in the wrong postcode at the wrong time.

There is now a pile of flowers where the murder took place and I walk past them everyday on the way to work and think, what a lovely area I live in.
Of course, there is an advantage to living in such a scummy area - It’s as cheap as life.

To coin a favorite phrase of mine....
There but for the grace of God go I.

Sadly that could describe any area of N London
I live in holloway and there are at least 3 individual floral tributes within 5 minutes walk from my house.

Tragic really.

Do you work at the North Mid?

no Deskbound
but I catch a bus to work just down the road from where the stabbing took place.
