Akilan Kandhasamy, 29, was fatally stabbed at about 11.30pm on Saturday at a party held at the New Horizon Centre, in South Lodge Avenue, Mitcham.A veritable United Nations of diversity!
According to the family which organised the party, a group of teenagers – five black youths and two girls, one black and one white – were hanging around outside the community centre and began demanding money from guests at knifepoint.
If it turns out they are the culprits, and one or more has ‘learning difficulties’ (and if they don’t, they will by the time their defence team finishes) we’ll have the whole Victimhood Poker suite!
Baskaran Sinnathurai, who lives in Thornton Heath, said one guest had been robbed of £60 in cash and ran inside to warn others and to call the police.Not being familiar with modern English customs, they expected public services to be, well, serviceable:
Minutes later, he said, Mr Kandhasamy stumbled into the hall clutching his chest and appeared to have been stabbed once.
Mr Sinnathurai also said party guests ran across South Lodge Lane to a nearby police office for the Pollards Hill Safer Neighbourhood Team, wrongly assuming a police officer would be there.An everyday story of ‘government cutbacks’?
He said: “Two people ran over and ran back saying that no one had answered. We didn’t know they were there during the day only. We were running around not knowing what to do.”
Well, let’s count how many PR staff and ‘victim support teams’ and ‘community reassurance officers’ turn up in the aftermath, while the - stretched-thin - real police try to solve the crime, before we decide that, eh?
