Re: Muslim Gang Beats Sikh for Defending Woman
I understand. However that part of London has been known from the 1700's to be a rough section where rough types live and work people over. It started that way at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution when many people were thrown off farms and migrated to cities. The first immigrants so to speak were from rural England, followed by immigrants from France and Italy, followed by other immigrant groups --- most often they were people without education or trades who picked up work as they found it. Historically the center of activity for grave robbers, petty thieves, extortion rackets, gang organizations, drug peddling, prostitution, child abuse of every kind, kidnappers, and so forth. Many turned to a criminal life-style and bred over generations a culture of expectations. Good people are trapped there by poverty. Getting out is often seen as disloyalty. So when people struggle to get an education or a good job so they can leave, they are branded as traitors. The social pressure to be either a criminal or a victim is so strong. Soon as I saw "Bethnal Green" mentioned as the home grounds of one of the attackers my thoughts were focused. There are good people everywhere, but there is something called "a hard part of town."
