Arsenal fan scarred for life in attack

AN ARSENAL fan was scarred for life when he was slashed across the face in a vicious attack. Hours earlier, another man was beaten and thrown through a shop window just yards away.

Both attacks happened on Saturday in Blackstock Road, Finsbury Park – a “no man’s land” on the border of Islington, Hackney and Haringey that earlier this year was plagued by a similar spate of violence.

One shopkeeper, who did not want to be named, said: “I call it the forgotten road because the police don’t seem to care. The level of lawlessness is astonishing. It’s because it’s on the border and it’s like a no man’s land.”

The first attack saw an East African looking man beaten up and thrown through the window of Rais Newsagents at about 4pm. Three hours later, three men were walking home from an Arsenal match when one of them bumped into someone. An argument broke out and the 38-year-old victim from Hertfordshire ended up being slashed from his left cheek to his chin.

The attacker was a bearded 6ft tall Asian or Arab man in traditional Muslim dress.

    This does not suprise me, the police around there are too scared to even question anyone non-white in case they are accused of racism. This has been fuelled by the left wing council for years.

    Ask any police officer off the record and they will tell you. This is well known among the mainly knife weilding turkish community who attack anyone at will knowing there will be no repercussions.

    Zero tolerance and support from the council is the only way to stop the rot.

    Typical this countrys becoming a joke as bloody immigrants roam the streets attacking good honest brits as they please with little done about it, the left wing policies protecting these animals must go because it’s becoming incresingly clear that the majority of the British public don’t want these criminals and illegals in our communities.
    they may have fled troubled lands to seek a better place to live(not to mention free healthcare and benefits) but the truth is it’s not the land that was corrupt and bad it was the people in it, if they all come here sadly Britain will suffer the same fate…the time for admiting mistakes and fixing them has come- before it’s left to the public to solve this problem themselves because that i’m afraid seems the only alternative in the current political climate

    we will not become a frightened minority in our own land, by ballot or blade we WILL have our rights and our country back one day
