Is anyone from the forum attending the memorial for the man murdered on the South Bank

I am surprised that this hasn't come up as a topic of discussion before.
I first read about these muggings a while back and now that someone is murdered it
looks like something will be done.
After surviving the Admiral Duncan bombing as well - some sort of sick cosmic joke.

I am hopeful that since this has had such a high profile in the media, and that suspects have been arrested already, it will send out a clear message that both hate-crime and violent robbery will not be tolerated and that those who commit it will not get away with it. It is appaling that in this day and age, in supposedly tolerent central London, that this can happen. People should not be ruled by small mined, ignorant thugs, let alone have their lives ended by them. The South Bank has always felt like a safe place to me, and I hope it will return to being so.

from what i heard on the radio, there were 5,000 people there. I think the response has been comforting. Most Londoners want the tolerant city we enjoy to remain just that.

I imagine the lawyer for anyone taken to court over this will describe his/her client as a misunderstood
and deeply troubled person who endured a tormented childhood, was dropped on their head as a baby
and is in no way responsible for their actions.

shouldn't the dates on this story on the news page read October, not November? (apart from upcoming court appearance..)

I actually knew him as I was a regular in the Admiral Duncan for many years before moving up to Scotland. We all called him Cinders and I have the most wonderful photo that my aunt took at Soho pride last year of him wearing a full length ball gown, sitting on the window ledge above the pub with his feet dangling over the sign.

I got such a shock when I saw the report on the six o'clock news last week. Very sad indeed.

I still find it inconceivable that people can still do this to each other.
