Life Is Suffering

posted by on June 2 at 14:31 PM

Are you marked?

A respected campaigner [Pat Regan] against guns and knives who had the ear of young gang members as well as the Home Office has been found stabbed to death.

Pat Regan’s grandson, Rakeim Regan, 20, has been arrested in connection with the killing, and the unrelated stabbing of a railway worker.

The body of Regan, who campaigned in schools and youth groups after two of her six sons were shot, one fatally, was discovered last night at her flat in Leeds.

To bad she wasn't packing a side arm. She'd probably still be with us...

UK yardies be playing rough.

killed by a crazy grandson. very little to do with her public campaign, and a lot to do with untreated mental illness.

So long as people can simply walk into any store and buy knives without any questions about their purpose, such senseless, needless crimes will continue.
