The Grenfell Inferno

nintchdbpict000331679320

On Wednesday, June 14th there was a fire that ripped through the Grenfell tower blocks in Ladbroke Grove West London. Ladbroke Grove is in the borough of Chelsea and Kensington the richest borough in all of London. Grenfell tower blocks construction started in 1972 and completed in 1974, 42 years later they decided to carry out a renovation costing 8.7 million pounds, what they spent the money on I really can’t work it out, they used plastic cladding on the outside of the building for what reason my brain really can’t get around it, they didn’t even fix the lifts, this building is 220 feet tall, there are disabled people within this living space that for some strange reason were put on every other floor apart from the first, if these lifts broke down how were they meant to get into their apartments? Because I hope no one expects a wheelchair to be lugged up all those stairs I think the fuck not.

I’ve done further digging into this building and found out that the original architect Nigel Whitbread said in 2016 that the tower had been designed with attention to strength and further in said that ” and from what I can see could last another one hundred years” as in the tower, we are in 2017 he said this last year, so in the next coming years the building was going to collapse or something was going to happen to it anyways sounds all a bit too fishy to me. There was originally two contractors for the refurbishment but because one price was £1.6 million higher the owners of the building decided to go for WITT UK in the hours of the fire WITT UK removed all references from the refurbishment from their website, they had been responsible for the smoke ventilation and extraction system fitted to the building during the refit, but it’s not just their fault clearly as the owner ‘Royal Borough of Chelsea and Kensington’ and also the landlords ‘Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation’ are as of to blame, I’m pretty sure if contractors carry out a job you’re both meant to go back over them and find errors, but I’m pretty sure they didn’t do this, out of all the resistant materials in the world why on earth would you use plastic, no common sense and with no common sense we are calling justice.

I’ve heard so many different times that the fire started but if you was on the block and I get the time wrong please correct me, so it started at 1am or just a little before and the fire was still ablaze at 11:30pm a whole 22 hours later the fire was still not out, I also got two accounts of when the fire services arrived someone said 6 minutes after and someone said two hours after with my own initiative I really believe the two-hour account mainly because Ladbroke Grove is a deprived area these people as in the government don’t care about you I’m being 100 percent real they do not care, if this fire was in a middle or upper-class area the fire services would’ve been there in 5 minutes and the fire would’ve been out in 30 minutes let’s be honest. I commend the fire services for what they’ve done as I could never risk my life going into a burning building but they turned up late to a building that was burning incredibly fast, they didn’t turn up with the correct equipment, how can you not bring the correct equipment to a fire, and you call yourself a service, what service was you expecting to provide without the basic equipment, what I found extremely odd was that the fire services visited this estate on Saturday 10th June and went around to different apartments telling them how to act if a fire occurred, they were telling people to stay inside as the doors which were supposedly fire doors would hold the fire back long enough until they were rescued, fire doors can hold a fire back for about 30 minutes to 1 hour if they are installed correctly, how coincidental that a fire occurred 4 days later on the same estate, a woman even said that ” If I listened to the fire crew I wouldn’t of survived” Now isn’t this strange how can these people give such direct information out hoping to be protecting us and it was all lies, it’s like they didn’t want survivors they stopped looking for people at such an early time I was absolutely flabbergasted, giving this instruction to over 600 people whom these people have families to support and look after, for the people that issued out this ‘advice’ or ‘instructions’ you should feel disgraced, look how many people were screaming for help, trying everything in their power to stop what was happening, I’m sorry actually scrap that you had a poxy fire ladder that wasn’t even merely extendable to reach the higher floors, you had ridiculous squirts of water coming out of them hoses, those hoses should have been more powerful,there were no sprinklers throughout the whole building, hardly any fire alarms, the fire service should’ve been more prepared, but to the firemen and women that are actually giving us the truth about how many people have died the utmost respect for you.

A lot of people are saying this fire was an ‘accident’ it certainly was not an accident or a terrorist attack either, this was planned by the government when I heard that a fridge set fire to a whole 27 storeys I called bullshit straight away, yes it had faulty wiring but that man never knew and for the daily mail to plaster his photo all up in the media it was a very sickening move to make. The whole building had faulty electrics, residents would wake up to their plugs, lights, toasters smoking, they got so scared that they went straight to the council to report it, so they reported it and they got electricians out they same day who solved the problem, looking back now they didn’t do a very good job at all, how can a whole building have faulty electrics that is not humanely correct at all, this means this could’ve happened to anyone in the building and it wouldn’t of been their fault, it would’ve been the people that installed all the electrics and wiring into the building and that resides back on to the council since they are the owner and landlord of this property, what I fail to get my head around is for so many people to have ownage of a building and for it all to be incorrect, all these people were paying rent and council tax, rent for who? Council tax for who? They were living in a crumbling tower block, where was all their hard earned money going, when you had a chance to make an improvement with the money you did the complete opposite, the cladding was so cheap I want to know where the rest of the money went? And I want answers, 8.7 million got to be having a laugh ain’t ya, the cladding cost less than £100 and you put new windows in, for all of that for the whole building definitely under five thousand pounds probably even lower, so where is the rest of the money, I want to see a list of what you bought and where it was used around the building and why.

I woke up randomly at 2 am and felt a gist to go straight to Twitter as I did this and was scrolling for five minutes or maybe a little longer, I saw pictures from the fire and even videos of people screaming for help but these were media from people actually on Twitter nothing from the mainstream media which I found pretty odd because the recent attacks at London Bridge was on the TV and already in the newspapers straight away, you could see this fire from pretty much anywhere in London and smell the fumes from miles away, none of what was happening reached mainstream media till 4am, the blocks was on fire for three whole hours before the journalists decided to swoop out and come grab a story, children were screaming, crying saying they was going to die, they even alerted people by flicking the light switches on and off continuously for hours, when journalists turned up some of them purposely blocked the roads so ambulances couldn’t get down the street, a service that wanted to help the injured and escort away the dead bodies couldn’t even get proper access, the media and all the people involved within it absolutely disgust me, how can you continually lie about something and when we ask for the truth you want to stutter and act deaf, simple questions and you can’t answer, well at the end of this there will be a series of questions that I want to be answered and I know that everyone would want to be answered too. Twitter is the best platform for anything and everything but especially the news, without the people this wouldn’t have made it to the millions of people it did to alert everyone, these people that alerted people in the blocks, surrounding areas deserve a reporters degree they did so well, I woke up to actual people with their phones doing the work instead of big BBC news they did nothing, ITV news nothing.

QUESTIONS WE WANT TO BE ANSWERED

1. Why did you use cladding that was banned in the UK?

2. Why do you feel the need to continuously lie about the death poll?

3. Why were their bodies near the train tracks, instead of hospitals to be identified?

4. What do you think £5000 is going to do for the homeless families?

5. Why are you as the government not doing more to help?

6. Why did the media decide to plaster the man with the faulty fridge on the front page, knowing full well it was not his fault?

7. Regarding the banned cladding, was the overall design and materials tested and subsequently signed off by the relevant authorities? 

8. Why was there a helicopter circling the building, what was the initial purpose?

9. Why was it broadcasted on the news at 4 am in the morning, when it started at just before 1 am? 

10. What are you going to do for the victims, homeless families now? 

I’m so upset and more importantly lived by how this has been approached, it hurts that the people that are meant to help us fed us lies, they fed the people on the estate lies they’ve fed the whole country lies and the most antagonising thing is they keep lying, you don’t even get anything positive from doing it, now they’ve covered up everything like death count, how it started etc they’ve only gone and done it because London riots part 2 is officially sparked and boiling up in the process, I also don’t understand that the first riots was sparked by police lying along with the government with Mark Duggan who was 29 years old when he was shot and killed by the police they covered up everything until we as the people, public, community stood together and picked this case that the police built against him apart. Liars will never prosper and I hope their careers get ripped from them.

Furthermore, I’ve been following the ‘government’ we don’t even have one what is it day 11? No government, anyways while this inferno was going on our prime minister God forbid ‘Theresa May’ was in Paris watching football that’s beside the point but she was abroad, our country has been in turmoil before the elections and even worse after them, so I don’t know how she got to the conclusion of deserving a break, I know ‘hate’ is an extremely harsh word but better still I hate Theresa May and all of the Conservative party, they’ve done nothing but wreck and destroy this country it was bad anyways but they’ve made it ten times worse. When I heard that she was giving away five million pounds to the people affected I was vexed, first of all where in the hell was this money coming from? They claim the UK is in debt and she whips out five million first of all that is not enough money, Theresa May earns £143,000 annually, just over £11,000 monthly and nearly £3000 weekly and she’s trying to tell us that 5 million is fine that equates to £8000 per family, okay you should see where I’m going these families all lived in London clearly, rent in London is so overly expensive for no reason at all, if they was doing worthwhile with the rent money fair enough but their not, £8000 is like five to six months rent, while I don’t think Theresa understand what’s about the clothes that go on their backs, food in their stomachs, a roof over their heads that will actually be sustainable, electronic goods like the basics a TV or even a radio, these kids once upon a time had toys to play with, even worse I’m hearing they want to move these people out of London, you CAN’T do that I repeat you CAN NOT do that, you can’t usher up people and prop them down into unknown areas, this is not their fault, if anyone from conservative reads this or the council let me tell you something it’s your fault, you think it’s only murderers that can have blood on their hands, news flash you lot have it on your hands too and it’s twice as bad, you lot sentence people without a second thought, now it’s your turn.

Now further along the figures that you lot love to issue out as the ‘truth’ no way in hell is their 19 people dead, 27 storeys and you want to tell us 19, really what dimension do you lot live in, we are not stupid and you lot are clearly not intelligent, sitting in parliament all day every day discussing crap, discuss the real underlying issues in this country, that you love to call ‘Great’ Britain! There’s nothing great about it. TWENTY-SEVEN STOREYS and 19 dead? Are you completely mad? 600 families, we said lived in there, people went by on the train and saw body bags full of people inside them, the community doesn’t lie, we are talking about people’s families, people need to know whether they’re dead or alive, there are even firefighters on the scene who spoke and said that they’ve found 160 dead bodies and they hadn’t even gone above the 14th floor, the fourteenth floor with thirteen more to go, I even heard that the police said the bodies are too burnt to even recognise who it is, um hello not being rude, but newsflash times two it’s the 21st century we have all the technology in the world, and if you didn’t know already dental records, the outside of your teeth is harder than any other substance in the human body, that’s why your teeth can withstand temperatures of more than two thousand degrees, so let the lies keep on coming.

Another thing I find extremely difficult to get my head around is that a few residents from the building said they saw a helicopter circling the building while the tower was ablaze, I found no problem with this till I later came across that it was just circling continuously didn’t offer no aid of help to the poor souls stuck inside, okay I know a helicopter can’t get too close to smoke because the engine will just retaliate and collapse but the least it could of done was either try and save people or even have a hose attached to tackle the inferno from the top, in Australia they have forest fires all the time, in their case they have self-flying choppers and drones which use infrared and visible light cameras to pinpoint the fire, this is something the UK should invest in, because if this happens again I don’t even want to begin to think what will happen.

Technology is becoming so advanced I keep saying this ” More could’ve been done” Self-flying in itself is clever enough if an electronic can target with infrared sensors a fire, can you see how much that could’ve done for this situation and many situations before, this puts firefighters out of much danger as possible, people might be thinking then we will get this service cut out more, it maybe will but in big fires like this we could use drones, when the small fires come into play we can use fire trucks it’s less of a risk, Theresa May has cut the services this year by a stupendous amount between 2013 and 2014 3,146 firefighters were injured due to them risking their lives saving people, yet she’s cut this service which shows she’s clearly irresponsible to carry a country, actually the UK is hardly a country it’s an island.

It’s now day three of me writing this blog and I always watch the news just to see what lies they’ve thought about each day, but most importantly I listen to the people, I’ve watched the videos I’ve seen DJ Isla, Akala, Krept and Konan, Lilly Allen and many others talk about this situation, and of course I’ve seen the videos of the council get attacked, if you was there I applaud you really I do, because they deserve everything they get, as I’ve been writing this I’ve been talking back and forth on this with quite a few people, and many people know I’m writing this so they always bring me more sources and what they’ve found so I got shown something and when I read it my face literally dropped, furthermore there was a family that was in the fire and they luckily escaped here’s what I found outrageous the council told a family that they’ll put them in a hotel, instead they put them back in a tower block in another area, are they taking the piss? Tower block and a hotel? Where is there a resemblance?

Furthermore I’ve been looking over this area over the years as this is an area I’m very familiar with, I grew up around West and I’ve seen it change magnificently some good but some extremely bad the media keep saying how North Kensington is an extremely ‘deprived’ area, okay we get it, it is no need to keep saying it. However White City is literally around the corner different boroughs I know but Westfield is literally on our doorsteps they’ve dumped a big massive shopping centre in a ‘underprivileged’ area, some of you must be thinking and your point is? My point is that these councils did this intentionally to run people like us out, for example, shepherd bush market used to be bustling on the weekends now it’s pretty much departed, all our livelihoods are slowly disappearing this is what they want everything our grandparents and the older generations worked for its gone, Shepherd’s Bush Westfield and Stratford Westfield are completely different, Shepherd’s Bush has all these big names like ‘ Gucci, Armani, Hugo Boss, Burberry, Calvin Klein’ who in gods name can afford all of these luxury brands in a ‘deprived’ area not us that’s who, and because we can’t afford them that’s not good enough for them, because they’re losing out on a big sum of money, and that’s all they care about, money is the root of evil and always will, this greed people seem to have is not normal. I’ve seen family businesses knocked down as they increase the rent so they clearly can’t afford it, once it’s sold they’ll put a mainstream business in its place like a McDonald’s or Costa in its place I’ve seen so many just auctioned off I find it highly ridiculous and rude. London is just overly expensive and I’ve never seemed to figure out why in the next coming years probably about 10 – 15 years tower blocks will no longer exist within this I mean the old ones, they’ll issue people to move out once everyone’s out they’ll knock it down and build luxury apartments that no one apart from the wealthy can afford, funny isn’t it? That’s why I want you lot to fight with all your almighty strength to keep your livelihoods alive.

Hypothesis:

Time for me to sum up everything I’ve written, what’s happened I can’t even put into words how upset I am, but for the victims and for everyone that was there and lives close to the area you must be distraught and angry and most importantly broken of everything you’ve gone/ still going through. The government and council have failed you and everything you believed in, the authorities don’t want to help you at all and you can see they don’t by how they’re approaching this, they’re ignoring you like you’re nothing and you’re someone, our voices deserved to be heard and listened too we are a community and we’re not alone within this, the authorities are scared of us speaking out because you people of Grenfell know the full truth and no one can tell you that you’re lying. The government have blood on their hands and because they think they’re so powerful they also think no one can harm them which is so wrong because they have a lot to answer for and soon enough they’ll crack, lies get people nowhere and for these people meant to be running this country/ island whichever one they’re doing a ghastly job of it.

I’m still confused as to why Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth turned up because all they did was shake hands, have small talk and leave it was completely pointless in my eyes, the queen went back to her 775 room palace and Theresa went back to number 10 living comfy while 100’s of people were declared missing, dead and homeless, and plus Theresa was late her time was up as she wasn’t even in the country.

The firefighters even though you did many wrongs you also did a few rights by risking your lives and honestly I commend you for that, and I know a few firefighters that have given out the correct death toll instead of the incorrect one.

Jeremy Corbyn and Sadiq Khan honestly hats off to you, because you’re the only people in the government that have my full trust, as soon as you both heard about this tragedy you both wrote letters to the conservatives and also came down to the area straight away and was being real with people and showing actual emotions.

People of the U.K. clearly need to wake up, these people you vote for and they promise you all this shit, it’s not true they want your votes to continue to fuck things up, it’s not hurting them it’s hurting us, you all have voices start using them, do you really think the news tells the truth, I used to trust everything I read in the sun and daily mail all the time, but I grew up and realised that what they write, what the journalists tell us are all lies, you see the wars going on the UK initiated them they give money to all these countries for war, they never want to calm down and think of the consequences, and now four tragedies have happened in the UK in less than 4 months first Westminster, then Manchester, then London Bridge and now Grenfell tower block, these terrorist attacks are all triggered by our government, they created this war been Afghanistan and all of the rest, we constantly bomb them and they expect for these people not to do the same, if we left them alone then we wouldn’t be in so much turmoil, we bomb them they do the exact same back, it’s constant bickering and I’m fed up of it, there is meant to be grown adults controlling the laws and country and the continuously fuck us over, Grenfell was no accident it wasn’t set alight by a fridge, a fridge really? What a disgusting lie, the whole building was faulty from top to bottom the residents complained and the council only went and put cheap plastic round the building which is actually banned the UK, they had all that money and didn’t even use it to its full function, I’m livid! I hope that everyone involved in the dysfunction of that entire building is sent to the USA and given actual life sentences.

Just remember Conservative MP’s voted against proposed new rules requiring private sector landlords to ensure their properties are fit for human habitation.

For all the volunteers, supermarkets and everyone else that hustled together to help these people that just shows how strong we as people are, it was honestly the most loving thing I’ve ever seen, God bless each and every one of you.

To the people of Grenfell, my deepest condolences are with you, I can not imagine what you must be going through, we will find the missing and find out who is dead, stand strong because I’ve got you and so do millions of other people, we know the full truth and I for one am not scared to speak out for what’s wrong and right.

If I find my blog in any newspaper or any mainstream media without my permission I will sue, that’s not a threat that’s a promise.

Teeks X

The real crisis.

drop the knife

I really didn’t want to touch on such a topic, but this really needs to be addressed sooner rather than later so if you didn’t know the last few weeks there has been a continuous amount of stabbings, sexual assaults, unprovoked attacks and so much more in the streets of London than any other place in the UK, don’t get me wrong I have noticed other places but London will be my top focus for now.

I know no matter how much I write or physically talk in this situation it won’t change but maybe it will give you and others around you an insight to think about the sickening acts that are taking place upon our streets every single day it needs to be stopped.

In the newspapers or on social media for the last 4 weeks it’s actually reached its peak, families being torn apart, teenagers dying, children as young as five carrying weapons, I’m hearing more and more ‘wrong place, wrong time’

It’s easy for me to type ‘It needs to be stopped’ but this fiasco that is taking place in this city needs to be addressed properly and through, but really how much more can be done? We’ve upped our police force, checks are done in areas on a daily, weapon bins are in place, the public are even doing marches around these attacks.

A recent March was held which started from Hackney and ended in Islington the demonstrators was calling for an end to the knife and gun crime, but unfortunately, a few hours after there was another murder where a 17-year-old died. FIFTEEN murders later will these cold blooded murders stop? In my opinion of course not, fifteen murders later and these people with knives known as ‘shanks’ stuffed in their leg, down trousers in their side bag will always carry these weapons, I know people that carry myself, people that live in my area and many people that I know live in London, my question always is “WHY?” and the same response I get is “I’m protecting myself” but protecting yourself from who? So you’re protecting yourself by carrying yourself what if when your waltzing about somewhere and you see an enemy known as an ‘Opp’ you both lay eyes on each other both go for the attack and the other person pulls out first, the last thought that will go through someone’s head will be “oh fuck I’m dead now” damn right you’ll be dead or suffering serious injuries in A & E.

Once upon a time in my thoughts I wanted to have a family but now I don’t want it, in this world no thank you, staying alive for some people is a constant battle, actually for anyone it’s a struggle, you could be a normal person go to work, come home, minding your own business, don’t really get involved with people, next day you’re on your way to work get caught up in the middle of some gang drama someone chases you down ends up murdering you in broad daylight and your life is finished, then it will be another case of “wrong place wrong time”. First of all what the fuck is ‘wrong place wrong time’ how can you be in the wrong place especially when you’re actually meant to be there, what’s wrong with right place right time, it’s not your business if people want to rubbish in the places you end up.

One thing I just find berserk is weapon bins, it’s really a 50/50 situation some people will find a weapon and dispose of it but how the other half live that weapon ain’t going in the bin, it will end up in someone else’s chest, leg, heart, through their shoulders, okay you get my point it will end up everywhere where it ain’t meant to be. I really thought knives were for chopping vegetables or cutting up meat the same knives I see in my kitchen are the same knives I see on road, actually, I’ve seen some crazy weapons them zombie knives where I’ll expect to see in a video game are actually real. Don’t get it twisted these bins have done justice in just under a year over 3,700 weapon sweeps have been conducted, over 800 weapons have been recovered, hundreds of shops including off licenses have been visited with trading standards to see if they’ve been selling weapons to underage people luckily enough over 1500 people were arrested including 243 for possessing a knife or an offensive weapon.

The number one problem we face is gang culture, not just in London but everywhere, people tend to go around in groups not all groups are gang related but a lot of them are.

The music scene has a huge influence on what is going on, I know people rap about where they’ve come from, how they’ve grown up etc…that’s fair enough but some rap I’ve heard they bring names into it, family members, postcode wars is a thing now and always will be, there are certain parts in London I won’t go to alone, not because I’m scared but because how I grew up knowing the area it’s the complete opposite. I’ve been in so many group chats over the past two years and some people wouldn’t even join because there was an ‘Opp’ in the chat, I’ve seen so many arguments go on people will give all the talk in the world but when it’s time to fight no one would be on it.

Over time I’ve listened to music where I’ve found certain messages dug so deep within them, so I’ll list a few that I listen too hopefully you can find the true meanings of these songs.

Kannan – Grime
TE Dness – Behind bars
Villa – Tryna make it
Teks Sinatra – Letter to my unborn
Trapz – Nothing ain’t sweet
Showkey – Letter to M- Dot
Case – These days
Malachi – 8th November
Kojo Funds – My 9ine
Kano- Imagine
Dolo Brassi ft Gully – Round here

I’m a real music fan I mostly listen to drill, bashment, r&b, trap, and grime, but drill and grime are my scene for sure, more time I’ll be spitting all these bars from the songs and I’ll rap them for days on end, but after a while I really do start to deep the lyrics and most of the times I really think “shit den” because at that moment I realise what the hell I’m saying and what these people are actually talking about for example the other day I was listening to Lil uzi’s song “push me to the edge, all my friends are dead” I was proper jumping about singing it all and I really paused because it’s such a sad song most of these artists must be generally depressed to be saying lyrics like these, because deep it people are dying every day I remember a year ago there was some argument on one of my group chats and someone said ” People are dying everyday b, I’ve seen some of my boys die in front of me” Honestly that one line killed me because I’ve said it like 20 billion times already but I’ll say it again it’s a cold world, I really think “It is what it is”. The younger generation love to beef including me, not to the extent where I’ll go out of my way to end someone’s life because I always think these people have families at the end of the day, I wouldn’t want to kill someone and then I’ll be seeing the same four walls for the rest of my life that’s defiantly not my dream in life, I see parents cry nearly every day on the news because their little girl or boy has died from another vicious attack and has died, you people need to think of the bigger picture, go in and out of prison looks very boring.

The sentences I see some of these murderers get are ridiculously short, in the UK they say you’ll get ‘life’ life to our courts are just ridiculous banter so if you murder someone it will start from 15 years onwards, how can someone take a life from an innocent person and not get locked away themselves for life, the only reason I agree with America and their life sentences, is because they mean what they say, in these American prisons you’ll see the same 4 walls for the rest of your eternity, don’t get me wrong I know a lot of people are falsely accused of what they’ve done and they end up spending time inside ‘reflecting’ on something they haven’t done that’s cold, and then they start ‘reminiscing’ on what life used to be like but I’ve really learnt it is what it is. If you’re reading this don’t come back to me and say “that’s not fair” listen darling life isn’t fair, I used to believe everything happened for a reason but it’s clearly all getting out of control that quote every time I see or hear it I just disregard it honestly because, being murdered, raped, kidnapped isn’t an “everything happens for a reason” type situation.

The only people that can change the streets is us as a community, the government and the rest of the services included can try and enforce as much force and new tactics as they want but without us complying with them nothing will make a change for the better, it will certainly go downhill. The first week of May saw officers sprawled out across London, hunting for knives, doing stop and searches, searching cars, sweeping across back alleys, housing estates and parks within them searches officers hauled in 300 knives and made 393 arrests in 7 days. The only thing I found weird is they did all these checks on a certain race and that was the black race, I was watching a few videos and they would stop young and old people and conduct these searches, I didn’t find this fair at all because any race can attack and do indiscernible damage but on the other hand the black race I’ve noticed do the most damage on each other like I’ve said in my previous blogs the black lives matter movement didn’t last very long it disappeared within a few months, I hardly hear about it anymore anywhere, why on earth would you attack your own race we’ve been through enough together we’ve fought to get rights for 100’s of years and we finally got them, we’ve been through slavery, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela plus loads more recognisable people fought for us they got knocked several times but they never stopped in what they believed in, this violence needs to stop! Weapons don’t need to be carried, what is the point like really what the fuck is the point, why can’t it go back to the old times where people only had their bodies to fight with like fists, I’d rather be trained in karate and be able to stick up for myself rather than taking out a weapon and destroying several lives and your own in the process, once you’re inside your track record has begun, there might be a few occasions people come out and want to turn their life around, but let’s be totally honest no one would want to employ an ex-criminal it’s highly unlikely, yeah maybe you want to change but what would you expect to walk out and get the same treatment before this criminal lifestyle, some employers might give you the time of day but others will not flick an eyelid. Just keep in thought “if you do the crime you’ll certainly do the time”.

No matter what’s going on in your life shouldn’t result in a negative affect towards someone else’s, it’s the weirdest things that will result in something so big like a slight look could really jerk someone, how you act, who you hang around with, who your family are, all these factors strangely enough cause unwanted arguments that can later over time spew into a rather large disturbance.

The one spending cut the government has put a cut on is the youth service budget around 28 million pounds has been taking away over the last five years, at least 457 youth workers lost their jobs and over 36 youth centres have been shut down. That’s what I find abnormal the youth are more on the streets than anything I’m not saying everyone would’ve liked going to a social club but it would be a start for them at least, there are people at these centres that have probably been in the same position as you or know people in a similar situation they can help you and more importantly they’re an opening ear.

Words of my own

Within knife crimes on the streets it really needs to settle down now I know it won’t stop 100% because believe me that’s impossible, but really if you’re found in a possession of a knife you could face a sentence of 5 years it doesn’t matter if you don’t have the intention of using it but if it’s on your person then expect a sentence, self-protection is not an excuse to carry a weapon can we all just remember that there is no ‘safe’ place to stab someone if you do it in the heart the person could lose all their blood within one minute, if you stab in the leg or the arm you could puncture an artery and this results in another death over what you think is a minor cut. Knife crime can affect anyone not just people in gangs but innocent bystanders like I said before a normal person can get caught up in other people’s disputes they can really suffer because of this and face serious injuries or fatal casualties, if your friends are carrying and an argument occurs if a knife is pulled out to someone and that someone dies you’ll go down as well for it as it is now known as ‘joint enterprise’ by carrying any weapon yourself you’re more likely target for someone else as situations can get out of control rather quickly. Knives are the most common weapon used in killings of young people, if you have a criminal record please just take into consideration that you most probably won’t be able to travel anywhere, for example, America, they don’t want you or your criminal self in their country, neither do Canada or Australia, and because of your stupid decision you might not be accepted into college, university or even get a job.
Does no one think of the families? The families that grow up with their kids, cherish moments with them, laugh, cry, talk about adulthood, talk about them wanting children and so on and who knew that your child, your sister, brother, cousin, nephew, niece could be here today and within a blink of an eye be completely gone the next day, imagine having to grieve for someone by them being killed by a weapon rather than dying naturally. Imagine getting that knock on the door and the police stood in front of you saying “I’m sorry ….. has died” I can’t even imagine the feeling and I’ll never want to either. When I see someone carry a weapon I honestly just think you’re so weak a whole weapon really? Bitch use your hands God gave you arms and legs for a reason go to karate or kickboxing if you want to scuffle with someone do it but don’t go overboard and kill them, I’d rather get done for head butting someone rather than outright killing them.

Some of you lot have time and I mean TIME want to go through all of this for what? Really for what? You ruin your life other people’s lives, get yourself a record, once you have that record it’s there with you for life, like forever and ever and a day, no getting rid of it, no wonder the older generation call the younger generation dumb because we think we know it all, when we don’t well actually some of us do, but you lot who carry weapons know nothing you’re all stupid.

No weapons equals better lives, I’ve heard so many songs where people rap or sing about someone that’s died, I’ve seen so many ‘ go fund me’ pages where people have died young, even though I say life is not fair, this isn’t fair these people are not choosing to die, you’re deciding for them.

Can you just stop and think about you’re doing for one minute, what do you want out of life? This isn’t GTA for you to be running around reckless killing each other, this is real life this isn’t a game, if that’s what you want to do turn on your gaming console and do that in your virtual life not in the real world, in this world there are consequences unlike GTA you get chased around by the cops for a few seconds and get away or they shoot you, you die and magically respawn like ten seconds later, like I said this is real life once you’re dead you’re dead, there’s no such thing as respawning, and really you can’t run away from the police because how they conduct searches here and find out evidence is quick, so you can run now but you can’t and won’t hide forever.

Now time for me, to be honest, I actually have no idea how much sense this blog has made as I wrote like one new paragraph per week, I started this blog like a month ago maybe more than that and I had it all in my head what I wanted to write and when it came down to typing it, I magically got memory loss, I’ve realised the title has lost its meaning as this was a ‘real crisis’ like a 2 months ago it still kinda is but we’re now looking at terrorist attacks but that’s a story for another day.

 Thank you to everyone that has supported me from the beginning it hasn’t gone unnoticed as I see all your comments that you write to me even though most times I don’t reply I’m very overwhelmed and thankful for how far it has come, I’m going to start a new segment very soon which will be unpopular opinions and trust me I have a lot of those, so keep reading and don’t forget to tell a friend to tell a friend about me.

I’m out for now
