Woman charged with murder of transvestite - Crime, UK - The Independent: "woman has been charged with the murder of a cross-dressing immigration lawyer who was allegedly pushed beneath an oncoming London Underground train on Monday.
Nina Kanagasingham, 34, from Cricklewood in north London, attended the City of Westminster Magistrates' Court yesterday morning. She was remanded in custody and will appear at the Old Bailey on Monday.
The victim was named yesterday as David Burgess, a 63-year-old transvestite known by his friends as Sonia, who fell on to the track of the Piccadilly line at King's Cross station during evening rush-hour.
The incident led to the station being evacuated, while hundreds of passengers on board the train had to make their way along the tunnel to safety. The trial is likely to centre on CCTV footage of the incident and the testimony of the many witnesses who have come forward."

Soccer World: England protests over 'London crime' comment by Russia 2018 chief executive

Soccer World: England protests over 'London crime' comment by Russia 2018 chief executive: "In a move which threatens to backfire more unpredictably than any number of UK media investigations, England had lodged a protest with FIFA over comments by the leader of the rival Russian bid to host the 2018 World Cup.
Andrei Sorokin, chief executive of Russia 2018, appeared to highlight London's crime rate and youth alcohol problems in an interview with Moscow daily paper Sport Express.
The reported comments contravene FIFA's bidding rules but Sorokin told SportsFeatures today here in Zurich that his words had not only been taken out of their original, generalising context but had been mistranslated. He also noted: 'We took a decision ourselves that we would never make a complaint against anybody.'
However this was not the first time that comments from Russia had upset England. Russian bid chairman Vitaly Mutko raised eyebrows earlier this year with comments about English football hooliganism."

BBC News - How one US state deals with alcohol-related crime

BBC News - How one US state deals with alcohol-related crime: "stringent project designed to curb alcohol-related crime in the US state of South Dakota is to be used as a model for a project in the UK.
The '24/7 Sobriety Program' forces problem drinkers to take - and pay for - twice-daily breath tests to prove they are sober.
The tests can be used as a sentence after a conviction, or a condition of bail, after an alcohol-related crime. They can also be imposed upon parents as a condition of having children returned to a household in families with a history of alcohol abuse.
Failure of a test usually means an instant short spell in jail, and it is hoped that such a dramatic sentence will shock people out of re-offending - thereby reducing long-term prison numbers and cutting off alcohol-related crime at the source.
The Greater London Authority is working on a pilot of the project meaning compulsory sobriety would be used as a sentencing tool for magistrates and judges as an alternative to custody."

teenager was killed and another injured when two balaclava-wearing gunmen opened fire on a group of four young friends


 murder inquiry was launched yesterday after a teenager was killed and another injured when two balaclava-wearing gunmen opened fire on a group of four young friends.
Officers were called to parkland in Plaistow, east London, at about 3.20am after reports that two teenagers had suffered gunshot wounds. The victim, believed to be 16 and named locally as Sammy Adelagun, was pronounced dead at the scene. A second teenager, believed to be 15, was taken to hospital where his condition was said to be stable.
Detectives from the Metropolitan police's Trident unit, which tackles gun-related crime within the black community, are investigating the death.
Next of kin had been informed, police said, and no arrests had yet been made. There were suggestions that at least one of the youths may also have been stabbed.
One neighbour, who asked not to be named, said that she heard a loud banging on the door of a house in Chesterton Road and the sound of people running up and down stairs. "It was a huge commotion," she said.

 Julian Assange moves like a hunted man. In a noisy Ethiopian restaurant in London’s rundown Paddington district, he pitches his voice barely above a whisper to foil the Western intelligence agencies he fears.
He demands that his dwindling number of loyalists use expensive encrypted cellphones and swaps his own as other men change shirts. He checks into hotels under false names, dyes his hair, sleeps on sofas and floors, and uses cash instead of credit cards, often borrowed from friends."

 Kevin Bond had been on his way to a wedding fair with his fiancee when he was shot deadin broad daylight.

The gunman, who had made no attempt to cover his face, struck at close range by a set of traffic lights in Wythenshawe, Manchester.
Despite there being several witnesses at the scene, no-one has been arrested.
For local gym owner Greg Davies, who has spent the last two decades trying to entice young people away from a life of crime, this shooting did not make him bat an eyelid.
"There's no fear of reprisal, no fear of the law - he didn't try to disguise his identity, it was just another occurrence," he said.
The murder of Mr Bond is the very thing former doorman, Mr Davies, is fighting against.

discovered a world where automatic pistols, submachine guns and even hand grenades were being sold for as little as £50


On October 31st 2008, I was sentenced to two and a half years in prison for supplying three grams of MDMA to an undercover officer. It was a crime of naivety- I was attempting to supplement my student loan by dabbling in things that I knew very little about. At the time I had assumed that I was living in a country with a relatively low crime rate, where I could sell soft drugs with very little risk from other dealers. I was about to learn that Britain was in the middle of a very bloody drug war and that I had been lucky to be caught by the police rather than by another criminal. My time inside would change the way I viewed my country forever.
Rather than hiding behind my door until my release date, I decided to talk to as many different prisoners as I could throughout the course of my sentence and put together a book containing the life stories of some of the other inmates. I discovered a world where automatic pistols, submachine guns and even hand grenades were being sold for as little as £50, which is the equivalent of $80. Not only were rival drug dealers regularly robbing each other but they were also torturing one another in a number of brutal yet inventive ways during those robberies. Hammers, stun guns and baseball bats were being deployed to break every bone in their rival’s bodies before their belongings were taken from them.
Considering the fact that Britain is a country in which firearms are strictly against the law, I was shocked to learn that a large proportion of the prison population seemed to have had access to them. There were inmates who had been caught committing armed robberies at fourteen years old and several of the other prisoners had been shot before. “Weapons are ten a penny,” a black gangster serving a sentence for possession of a submachine gun explained to me. “You can get anything you want if you know who to go to.”
Unlike American penitentiaries, the inmates in the prison where I spent my sentence segregated themselves off along geographical rather than racial lines. They tended to associate with those from the same town or city as them, with groups of inmates who hailed from the same locality known as “firms”. Most firms contained a mixture of white, black, Irish gypsy and Pakistani criminals and the gypsies were by far the most ruthless of the bunch. Many of them had been taught how to fight almost as soon as they could walk as a result of being born into acute rural poverty on illegal caravan sites. Although they only make up a mere 0.15% of the overall population of Britain, gypsies are thought to comprise up to 10% of the prison population, making them over sixty times more common behind bars than they are within the outside world. They are one of the most over-represented races within the prison system and they are involved in everything from fraud and pick pocketing to armed robbery and drug dealing.
I left the prison a changed man- whereas I had once assumed that guns and gangs were few and far between in the country where I lived, I was now forced to face the grim reality of the situation. Britain is in the midst of a firearm epidemic. In the poorer neighbourhoods of every town and city in the country, guns are being bought and sold and lives are being lost on an alarmingly regular basis. Children as young as ten are taking crack and heroin and there are certain communities where talking to the police can result in social (and often literal) suicide. You may associate England with tea and crumpets but the average law-abiding citizen is two-and-a-half times more likely to be assaulted in the UK than in the US. It is becoming an increasingly violent place to live, with illegal weaponry becoming relatively easy to get a hold of, and guns quickly taking the place of knives and coshes as the tools of the trade for the nation’s growing underclass.

Chesterton Road, Plaistow, young boy has been shot dead.


16-year-old was discovered in Chesterton Road, Plaistow, in the early hours.
Police also found a 15-year-old boy with bullet wounds. He is being treated in hospital, where his condition is described as stable.
The teenager is yet to be formally identified and a post-mortem examination will take place later. No-one has been arrested.
The shooting is being investigated by Operation Trident - a police team dedicated to tackling gun crime within the black community.
The boy's next of kin have been informed, police said.
Metropolitan Police said 16 teenagers have been killed in London this year. Five of them were shot, including the 16-year-old boy.
'Very shocking'
People living in the area said they were "shocked" by the fatal attack.
Odia Wabenga, 48, of Florence Road, said: "A friend of mine called me just now and told me a young boy had been shot dead.
"It is shocking. I have lived here for almost 20 years.
"I have a young son who is nine and I feel very bad if things start changing like this, it's no good," the mother-of-four said.
Mohammad Chowdury, 27, also of Florence Road, added: "It's very shocking. Normally nothing like this happens around this area.
"I have been living here for 20 years and we have had no trouble."

It has published a report estimating the cost of hospital treatment for underage drinkers in England to be about £19m a year.
And the number of under-18s ending up in hospital after drinking too much is rising, the charity has warned.
Young people should be given more support it says, but one expert said parents also have a role to play.
Alcohol Concern's report, entitled Right Time, Right Place, states that alcohol contributes to 5% of young people's deaths - 1.4% more than in the adult population - and is "a significant problem for the UK".

Layabout son killed parents over hangover row - Telegraph: "Layabout son killed parents over hangover row
To his friends Daniel Dighton was a successful teacher and witty raconteur who could drink 13 shots of alcohol in one sitting and who regularly held drinks parties at his lavish flat."

stabbed both his parents to death after his mother called him a “f------ idiot” for lying in bed all morning with a hangover.

stabbed both his parents to death after his mother called him a “f------ idiot” for lying in bed all morning with a hangover.
Judge Timothy Pontius told Dighton he was not some badly treated child who snapped. "Yours was always a loving and close-knit family. Your parents were affectionate, generous and loving."
"It is hardly surprising your parents felt at the end of their tether," said the judge.
Dighton’s crime was the culmination of years of mutual frustration. His parents, Elizabeth and Barry, were described by relatives as “the perfect couple” who had lavished love and attention on their only son but were desperately disappointed by his indolence and lack of ambition.
Mr Dighton, 61, was the retired headmaster of Elmhurst Preparatory School, where his 60-year-old wife had been the head of reception year.
The couple were highly regarded in the local community and pupils remembered them as among “the last of the old breed of teachers” who devoted their lives to the school.
Dighton, who had an IQ lower than that of a 10 year old, felt the weight of his parents’ disappointment so keenly that he convinced his friends that he too was a successful teacher who lived in his own home.
In fact, he was unemployed and spent his days lying in bed pilfering alcohol from his parents’ drinks cabinet and watching crime documentaries about notorious killers.
At night, he walked to his local pub, The Folly, where he drank up to 13 shots of Jack Daniels with coke – earning himself the nickname Duckfish - and gambled his parents’ money on poker and pool tournaments.

Abdullah Baybasin was described as one of the most dangerous drug dealers in Europe after he was jailed for 22 years in 2006.

Abdullah Baybasin was described as one of the most dangerous drug dealers in Europe after he was jailed for 22 years in 2006.




But the Court of Appeal last year ordered a retrial on the drugs charge after concerns that the judge’s summing up of the evidence at the trial was unfair.



A judge at Woolwich Crown Court Friday ordered the retrial jury to find Baybasin not guilty because the lack of prosecution evidence meant that a conviction would be unsafe.



Judge Charles Byers said there was no direct evidence and very little circumstantial evidence of Baybasin's involvement in a conspiracy to supply 5lb (2.3kg) of heroin.



The Turkish Kurd is confined to a wheelchair after being shot in the spine by a rival but was accused of controlling a £10 billion (US$15.6bn) criminal organization involved in extortion rackets, human trafficking, prostitution, loan sharking and money laundering.



Police said that he ran his criminal empire from a shop in Haringey, North London.



Baybasin, 53, was jailed for 12 years after admitting blackmail and perverting the course of justice and a further 10 years, to run consecutively, after being found guilty of drugs smuggling.

Just one criminal jailed for every 96 crimes - Telegraph

Just one criminal jailed for every 96 crimes - Telegraph: "courts convicted 1.4 million people during the year but of those, just 100,190 people were sentenced to immediate jail terms after being convicted, according the annual sentencing statistics.
That represents just one per cent of the total crimes believed to have been committed.
The number of convictions increased by three per cent, which was the first rise since 2005, but that mainly resulted in increasing numbers of non-custodial penalties.
There was a ten per cent rise suspended sentences to 45,100, a three per cent rise in community penalties to 195,800 and a six per cent rise in fines to 945,500. The remainder were handed other disposals such as conditional discharges"

major rural crime wave could break out across Wales


Fears were expressed today that a major rural crime wave could break out across Wales as a result of the £7bn annual welfare payment cuts announced in the Coalition Government's Spending Review.

Farmers’ Union of Wales Gwent area officer Neil Smith, who has witnessed a big increase in farm equipment thefts over the past two months, said: "With such a reduction in social and welfare payments, and considering the current economic climate, we could see a further increase in such thefts.”

Abergavenny-based Mr Smith, who visits farms as part of his job, said the situation was particularly bad in Gwent. He is personally aware of two trailers, mini diggers and a couple of quad bikes being stolen over the past few weeks.

Last month the FUW warned farmers to be on the alert for three men from the Cardiff area with a pellet gun who claimed to be rabbiting when the white transit van they were travelling in was spotted parked on two separate farms in the Neath area.

Police inspected the inside of the van - CV05 YPK - at Llwynllanc Farm, Crynant, and nothing was found but it was seen again five days later parked on a neighbouring farm.

"We are anxious to highlight this incident because there have been a lot of farm quad bikes stolen in that area recently," said FUW Glamorgan county executive officer Adrian Evans.

"The police are warning farmers that the rabbiting claim could be just another scam by criminals to give them a degree of legitimacy for being on farm land and having a good look around the buildings."

Police revealed that a notable arrest was made in Aberdulais recently when two Merthyr men were apprehended for going equipped to steal. They were also using a transit van which contained empty diesel drums and siphoning equipment.
