You Mean, He Isn’t Already…?

Lots in the media this morning about the 12 year old white boy picked up as a result of circulating video clips of terrorist beheadings:
A 12-year-old white schoolboy is among 120 people being dealt with by police in a new project combating Islamic-inspired violent extremism, it was revealed today.

The child, who has only been identified by the initials BC, was reported by his school in West Yorkshire after he was found circulating video clips of terrorists beheading Westerners.
It was the following, however, that stuck me as a little odd:
Police revealed the child arrived in Britain as an asylum seeker in July 2005, and at the age of eight allegedly assisted a nine-year-old and a 12-year-old boy in the forced rape of his sister, although he was never prosecuted.

West Yorkshire Chief Constable Sir Norman Bettison revealed: 'The white child that we are working with has been downloading Jihadist beheading videos and circulating them around school.

'That was bad enough, but he also has an unnatural interest in guns and weapons. He spoke openly of his wish to be a sniper and spoke of his curiosity of what it would be like to kill someone.'

'He is at risk of being a violent young man and a threat to society,' the chief constable said.
‘At risk of being’…? What more would he have to do to be one…?!

Yes, you really do wonder sometimes if senior police need to stop and think before they let themselves get quoted in the media...

"He is at risk of being a violent young man and a threat to society,"

Notice the careful use of language which implies that we're not at risk, the scrote is. In other words we must do everything for him to avoid this risk.
