  • How terribly sad yet another young life lost on the streets of London.

  • It is very sad. The people who carried out this cowardly attack are just scum and need to be dealt with very harshly indeed by the Courts when they are caught not if they are caught.

  • Bring back National Service and take these little idiots of the streets for a few years. Enough is enough and we cannot allow this violence to continue on the streets of London.
