A British teenager was shot dead in London only minutes after a man was stabbed in the head in another part of London.
The victim, was shot dead in broad daylight.
Despite efforts by London Ambulance Service to attend to the victim’s wounds, he was pronounced dead after forty minutes of effort to revive him.
The shooting occurred after a man in his thirties was stabbed in the head in another incident that took place on London Road, Sutton. However, the injuries this victim sustained did not turn out to be life-threatening.
Gun crime has become a national issue in the United Kingdom, despite comprehensive gun control passed during the past three decades which has all but prohibited firearms ownership for self-defense in the U.K.
A day before the West Northwood shooting the Metropolitan Police seized a vast arsenal of firearms and explosives. In a raid taking place at an industrial estate near Bretts Farm, Romford Road, police found “three AK-47 assault rifles, one sub-machine gun, two shotguns, one revolver, one self-loading pistol, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, and 22 grenades”.
Law enforcement also found “A large number of stolen vehicles, several kilos of Class A drugs, and a cannabis farm”, and arrested one 31-year-old male “on suspicion of possession of firearms, ammunition and explosives with intent to endanger life”.
The causes of Britain and London’s violent crime wave are hotly debated.
Some argue that significant cuts to police funding by the central government, while others blame the law enforcement for focusing on non-violent crimes such as “offensive speech“.
The scaling back of stop and frisk has also been blamed for the violent crime increase.
When violent criminals were asked about London’s crime dilemma, they attributed weak sentencing and mass migration to the rise of crime.
One gang member said that “Giving tougher sentences will prevent people from carrying knives because nobody wants to go to jail for 10 or 15 years just for carrying a knife.”
In what many see as a futile effort, U.K. authorities have even floated the idea of knife bans and have instituted knife surrender initiatives.
Immigrant ghettoes have become a major problem in present-day London thanks to mass migration policies that the country has adopted in the past decade.
As time progressed, these areas have become home bases for criminal elements.
One criminal revealed to the Evening Standard how “In the last 10 years, since the Somalis and the Congolese came to London, they taught us a whole new level of violence.”
Starbucks Barista FIRED After Refusing to Wear “Pride” T-Shirt for Religious Reasons, According to Lawsuit
She is a Christian and was apparently told by her manager that she didn’t have to wear it.
A former Starbucks barista is filing an unlawful discrimination lawsuit against the coffee giant, claiming they fired her for refusing to wear a “Pride” t-shirt that violated her Christian religious convictions.
Betsy Fresse started working as a barista in December 2015. After transferring to a Glen Ridge, New Jersey, store in early 2019, managers apparently “assured” her that her Christian faith wouldn’t be an issue.
Then in June 2019, she noticed a box of Pride shirts on a desk and asked if they’d make her wear one. Her store manager said she wouldn’t have to, but two months later she found herself out of a job after being terminated by a district manager.
A notice of separation claims that Fresse was fired for violating Starbucks’ “core values.” It specifically mentions an incident where she said her colleagues “need Jesus” when given the “Pride” shirt.
Starbucks maintains that “no part of our dress code requires partners to wear any approved items that they have not personally selected” and that Fresse’s claims are “without merit,” in a comment to the New York Post.
So Starbucks denies that she was fired for not wearing the shirt, yet their notice of separation appears to claim that they fired her for something she said about Jesus. Not a good look either way.
Fresse is seeking backpay, punitive damages, money to cover the cost of an attorney, and a permanent injunction that prevents Starbucks from “failing to accommodate […] sincerely held religious beliefs.”
Starbucks has long been a major player in the world of Woke Capital. Back in February Big League Politics reported on how the British branch of Starbucks was raising money for a pro-transgender lobbying group:
The U.K. branch of Starbucks is raising money to push for the chemical castration and surgical mutilation of children.
Nathanael Blake at The Federalist reported that the multinational titan is selling special mermaid-shaped cookies to help the pro-transgender lobbying group Mermaids. Curiously, the group’s founder took her underage son to Thailand to undergo a castration procedure.
Blake correctly observed “That Starbucks is supporting this group illustrates how thoroughly radicals have conquered both the LGBT movement and corporate culture.”
He also called attention to how “In a few years the fight has shifted from government recognition of same-sex relationships as legal marriages to mastectomies, sterilization, and castration for children.”
Here’s hoping that Betsy Fresse is successful in her lawsuit.
