The mother of Britain's youngest gang victim has called on people to ask themselves if taking drugs is worth it as children are 'dropping like flies'.Yes, children unassociated with the drug trade are just keeling over in their bedrooms in the Hebrides and Jersey, and the wilds of Cumbria.
Jaden Moodie, 14, was said to have been 'groomed' by a drug gang before he was targeted by rival Mali Boys in east London in January.They are always 'groomed', aren't they? They never make a choice. Gosh, no!
His mother, Jada Bailey, has now called on people to question if taking drugs is worth it and has said there are lots of people to blame for his death including the 'groomers' and the 'dealers'.But not his family, oh no! Or him.
Jurors also learned that Jaden had been in trouble with police since he was a 13-year-old. He was handed a youth conditional caution in March last year after police seized an air-powered pistol, Rambo knife and cannabis during an altercation in Nottingham.
In November last year, he admitted appearing in a Snapchat video with an imitation firearm.
The previous month, Jaden was found with crack cocaine at an address in Bournemouth, jurors were told.What a loveable scamp!
