A 16 and 17-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, along with 19-year-old Jadan Richards attacked Iderval Da Silva when they saw an opportunity to steal his moped on May 28, 2019.
Today (January 2) the 16-year-old and Richards were found guilty of murder after a trial at the Old Bailey. The 17-year-old was found guilty of manslaughter.
They will be sentenced on February 5.Utter animals. The only defence against such creatures being a strong societal reaction to such violence.
Sally-Anne Russell, from the CPS, said: “This is a tragic case of a man who died trying to protect his property. However, faced with the youths he was outnumbered.
“Witnesses watched on in horror as the unprovoked attack unfolded. They rushed to Mr Da Silva’s aid after the attackers fled...”And....that's not what we have, any more. Is it?
Decent people are too scared to tackle thugs because they know the thugs are likely to be armed, and they aren't.
