Three times this week I've ridden through police tape in Brixton. Monday morning, Wednesday morning and this afternoon. Three times the whole place was at a standstill. Three times the air ambulance was landed on Rush common. Three times young West Indian boys had been shot. I've got 2 links I can't even find a link for the third shooting.
This comes two months after a 17 year West Indian boy was shot in the chest at point blank range and died at the end of our road and one month after a car had it's tyres shot out again at the end of our road.
There's a gang war going on all around us and no one's talking about it. Sorry, everybody round here's talking about it, but nobody important. Why? They're closing down schools because of this shit.
