"...it ain't just a question of misunderstood, deep down inside him, he's no good! ..."

OK, so, last week, we had the Edlington circus, and the usual suspects fell all over themselves to excuse the junior monsters by calling upon their awful home life; you can guess the kind of thing, mother a she wolf, father a minotaur, well, gosh, it's no wonder the kids were screwed up! They never had a chance, after all...

So, what about this kid's home background?
A boy of 13 who overpowered a woman then raped her in front of his two friends will spend just three years locked away for his crimes.

Balal Khan - thought to be one of the youngest convicted rapists in Britain - targeted the 20-year-old as she walked home.

He subjected her to a severe beating then screamed at her 'Do what I say or I'll kill you', before putting her through the ordeal of a terrifying sex attack.

Then he stole her bag and phone and even took a call from his victim's boyfriend to whom he bragged about what he had done.
And any mention of his home life?

Zip. Nada. Nothing. In fact, for all the mention they get, this kid might have no parents...

Why the discrepancy?

What is it, they say, is the first casualty of war? The truth. So is there some simmering pot that someone, somewhere is trying to keep a lid on? Do tell, someone.... anyone.

Balal Khan

ANOTHER good old English name to add to my collection.

The phone call with the boyfriend is just the icing on the cake is it not?

"Now Balal, these are two spoons and a rusty agricultural implement, drop your pants, I think we both know what's going to happen here..."

I know it's a cliche almost but rape also effects the victims partner and in this case...

I am not taking anything away from the rape itself. That is all to common so it's the little details that rile me and Master Khan provided a snorter there.

I was slightly curious about this, as usually the sentences for politically incorrect crimes such as rape are rather more severe than three years.

But hearing the scum's surname explains the conundrum; in Victimhood Poker Muslim trumps female.

By the way, NickM, what do you need the spoons for?

NickM said...

Brian,
I'm not entirely sure you want to know the answer to that.

Furor Teutonicus said...

You ALWAYS need spoons to make plum jam.

NickM,

I'm quite sure I don't.

But I habitually carry a Swiss Army knife about my person (illegal, I know, but I don't give a shit), so I'd hope to be adequately equipped should I bump into the perpetrator after his release; therefore I really need to know if the spoons are necessary or merely a desirable accessory.
