There’s been an update on the Avon & Somerset site and in The Cancer on the carnival night killing of 35-year-old Somalian, Mohamoud Muse Hassan who was stabbed to death at The Criterion pub in Ashley Road, St Pauls (Blogger passim).
First let us remind ourselves where we were:
“There are no indications it was racially motivated”
Chief Inspector Cath Tarrant, Avon & Somerset Constabulary
16 September 2007
“Avon & Somerset’s story of the murder on carnival night in St Pauls isn’t adding up”
The Bristol Blogger, ‘Dead Strange’
19 September 2007
Then today Avon & Somerset indicate:
“It is understood possible tensions between the Afro-Carribbean and Somali communities may be hindering the police operation”
Bristol Evening Cancer
11 October 2007
Fancy that! One month later and possible racial motivations appear. Who’d have ever guessed that?
Avon & Somerset meanwhile are also now wheeling out their “community leaders” and calling for unity and better co-operation with the police.
Why is it that white people’s “community leaders” are invariably democratically elected representatives but black people’s “community leaders” are invariably selected representatives in the pay of the government?
The Blogger will be returning to this issue soon.
