Another senseless murder

Tracey Cullum, punched in the face after confronting four youths who were 'queue jumpers', has died six weeks later following a blood clot to the heart caused by the attack. That's murder.

Why doesn't the BBC feel it's worth reporting?

Dunno, perhaps she wasn't black?

Black youth kills middle ages white woman. Isn't it immediately obvious? Racism! No, er, hang on, that would be if it's the other way around, er, um, it's her fault, that's it! She was part of the repressive fascist tyranny inherent in the system which denies hard working non-whites the ability to flourish, so she deserved it. Yeah, that's right...

Mm, disturbing story. Thanks for staying on the ball. Your frequent and passionate blogging is really good stuff. Even if we don't always agree, it's nice to have someone who gives a damn making their voice heard.

Thanks for the support Hobbes:) It would be sad if we always agreed!!

Four black men ganging up on one whitewoman. I note you pick up on the possible racial element and totally ignore the probable misogyny involved.

Tracey stood up for what she believed in, she believed that the safety of the children that were in her care was more important than anything, these kids didnt give a crap about her they didnt give a crap about the kids, they will get there dues.
