Then jump forward to the present:
A man in his 20s was stabbed at court today by a gang of masked youths in a suspected revenge attack.
The victim saw the gang jump out of a car as he was leaving Inner London Crown Court and tried to run back inside but got stuck in the revolving door.
They knifed him in the stomach in front of security and then fled, while police and the London Ambulance Service treated him on the floor of the security hall.Right outside a court, eh? Good lord, is nothing sacred?
The stabbing may have been a revenge attack after a rival gang member was targeted in a hospital in 2011.
Describing the original attack, the source said: 'They were literally going from ward to ward and pulling back curtains looking for somebody.
'The kid they were looking for had already been stabbed in the eye but I guess they hadn't finished him off properly so they broke into the hospital to get him - but when they couldn't find him they stabbed someone else.
'It's crazy. If they can stab someone in a hospital it's not a big deal for them to come to court and stab someone. It's kudos for them if they're not afraid to do that.'Well, what have they got to fear, after all? Our justice system?
It is to laugh...
