Shot. [Chilling moment thugs square off in brazen broad daylight machete showdown: Abdul Kefia and Twayne Bailey confronted each other with the weapons in Newcastle city centre, Mirror UK, April 6, 2019]:
Abdul Kefia pulled the fearsome blade from his hoodie after an argument with Twayne Bailey turned vicious.
A court heard Bailey then took a huge machete out of his friend’s rucksack before the two men faced up to each other in Newcastle.
CCTV cameras recorded Kefia, 26, running towards Bailey, 21, while swinging his machete.
Bailey then threw his weapon in the direction of the older man in a desperate bid to stop him in his tracks, Chronicle Live reports.
Newcastle Crown Court heard the men then chased each other with the blades.
But Kefia was on Friday jailed for 20 months for affray and possession of an offensive weapon. Bailey’s 11-month prison sentence for the same offences was suspended for two years.
Kefia denied the offences but Bailey admitted them.
Sentencing them, Recorder Andrew Haslam said: “People arming themselves with offensive weapons can’t be tolerated by this court.
“There is no good reason for anyone to have a machete in their possession in public.”
Chaser. [Black murder victims and suspects: London v UK, Sky New, July 28, 2018]:
Black people in the capital are disproportionately the victims of murder when compared with other groups, new figures have revealed.
A Sky News freedom of information request to every police force in the country showed London was unique when it came to murder statistics.
Almost half of murder victims – as well as suspects – were black despite the ethnic group accounting for just 13% of London’s population.
White people in London make up 60% of the population, but only account for 35% of murder victims and 24% of murder suspects.
Numbers for the rest of the country painted a different picture, with murder victim and suspect figures more or less proportionate to the make up of the population.
Nationally, 3% of the population is black, 5% of murder victims are black and 13% of murder suspects are black.
White people make up 86% of the country, 89% of the UK’s murder victims and 81% of its murder suspects.
The ratio is found globally in areas where western civilization is retreating to darkness.
