  1. Not remotely surprised by the names that have been released. Exactly what you knew it would be when the story broke.

    • And there I was thinking camilo Palacio was an Italian name and nothing to do with Trident. Sigh** what do I know .

  2. careful steve – the woke brigade regulars will be glossing over it soon, even though you are dead right

    • Check out the pictures & names of teenage stabbings, gang stabbings & shootings in the UK, you will not often see names like Smith, Davis etc-either for perpetrators or victims. It is why Operation Trident was set up in 1998 & is busier than ever today.

  3. Steve’s comment is factual Marva apart from one thing isn’t Davis a Welsh name, ( not having a go at the Welsh) is that why it’s irrelevant!!, but really it’s not the names we see as there are all sorts of names whatever they be, more of these crimes are created by non white people nowadays in the past 40 years ago plus it was white British people who were involved in crime but now it’s black British people who have more than quadrupled the amount of shootings than ever, the trouble is since the 80s more innocent people have been harmed and even killed and its fuelled by drugs in the main. Most of us are literally absolutely fed up with the shottings and stabbings and senseless killings every day even if it’s drugs related. We still need more police than we have now even though we have more than we did 2 years ago, still not enough for the amount of crime committed daily, judges need to give as stiff as sentence allowed for crime committed and more jails to keep them in.
