Murdered: 16 year old Ben Kinsella 

Two youths arrested over the murder of Ben Kinsella, who was stabbed to death in a London street, have been released on police bail.

Ben, 16, was attacked during a row with youths in York Way, Holloway, north London, at about 0200 BST on Sunday.

The youngster, the 17th teenager killed in London this year, died in hospital a few hours later.

His sister, Brooke Kinsella, who played Kelly Taylor in the BBC One soap EastEnders, said she was “devastated”.

Scotland Yard said it was thought schoolboy Ben had been at a party at the Shillibeers pub, in NorthRoad, when the row broke out with several youths.

One of the victim’s friends said Ben made a desperate phone call begging for help minutes before he died.

“He called me on the phone and just said ‘help’,” he said.

“He sounded really scared and then it just clicked off.” Continue Reading….

Every other week there’s news of a teenager being stabbed to death in London.

What the hell is going on???

Mayor Boris Johnson/the government need to start adopting a ZERO TOLERANCE approach to this bulls**t! 

All those youths out there who want to play at being ‘bad man’, going around sticking knives in to people for fun, taking lives and destroying families (including their own), deserve to suffer.

If they are caught with a knife on their person – 5 years maximum imprisonment.

If they are found guilty of wounding (attempted murder) – 15 years maximum imprisonment

If they are found guilty of murder –  30 years with no chance of parole.

Rest In Peace Ben Kinsella

  1. that really ain’t the answer, prison only makes the situation worse…

  2. How can the situation get any worse?

    We’re dealing with murderers here who need to be punished. Prison and longer sentences / life imprisonment is the answer.

    Zero tolerance!

    Right now these kids are getting off easy.

  3. I agree, more discipline in the prisons and harsher sentences, like in the US. Not like the holiday camps we have here.

    The prisons are not a deterrent at the moment. It might not be the answer, but it’s a start.

    RIP Ben.

  4. i agree with the zero tolerance approach. but i think thats only going to work if pigs have more stop and search powers.

    an this is where i have a problem with it cause i know from experience that pigs will lie and cheat, there to corrupt to be trusted with more stop and search power.

  5. this was a racist crime, a hate crime and they should be judged in consecuence as black racists they are

  6. the whole worlds going to hell in a hand basket, zero tolerance come on?
    these are not problems that can be stopped by immediate change, because these are not problems that immediately surfaced.
    this is a situation that most of the world is facing; violence, over-exposure to violence, and the legacy that violence leave instilled into our youth. we must carefully look at this, because one loss isn’t worth causing one-hundred more.
