The teenage girl who murdered a 16 year-old rival by stabbing her through the skull with a hair comb was named for the first time today.
Rebecca Douglas was just 15 when she plunged the steel prong into the left temple of Julie Sheriff during a petty row in which she accused the victim of spreading gossip about her having sex with boys.Ahhhh, the fairer sex! And once again, all the hallmarks of the gang-related savagery we are so used to seeing in the males:
She confronted the victim outside a betting shop in south London and demanded: 'What do you think you are doing in Clapham?'
The girl then asked her friends to hold her bag and Blackberry mobile phone before stabbing Julie in the shoulder and the head.Jailing her for just 10 years (will she serve it? Unlikely!) the judge had a warning for parents:
Judge Nicholas Cooke warned parents to be aware of the dangers to young girls...Of the threat posed by gang culture?
Of the need to move their lives (as so many multicultural cheerleaders have done) out of the urban environments blighted by gang culture?
...wearing such combs as 'fashion accessories'.
He said: 'We heard evidence that a pintail comb can be used as a lethal weapon.
'We heard it can be worn in the hair as a fashion accessory.
'It can be as effective a killing instrument as a stiletto knife. It is not a very nice thing to have in your hair.'Christ! What can be done about our country, when - rather than put a handle on what's really behind this - out judiciary would rather prattle on about the dangers of hair fashion accessories?
