A murder investigation has been launched after the body of a 38-year-old man was found with gunshot wounds in his legs in a field in Liverpool.
Detectives believe the man died due to a “local dispute” but denied it is linked to gang-related violence.
The body was found by a member of public near to Dam Wood, Croxteth, Liverpool, at around 2pm on Monday.
The death has not been linked to the murder of 11-year-old schoolboy Rhys Jones who was shot in the neck as he walked home on August 22 last year in Croxteth.
One of the things that struck me when 11-year-old schoolboy Rhys Jones was murdered was how detached the councillors were to problems going on in their wards. I am going to refer to one Councillor Rose Bailey of the Labour Party, who happens to live on the same estate where young Rhys was murdered. Soon after the murder she gave interviews on local TV and radio to say that occurrences like these in Croxteth were rare. Her comments were met with gasps and disbelief by people living in the same area.
Norris Green and Croxteth are particularly bad flashpoint areas for gun crime and its not an understatement to say the police are stretched in these areas. The wise thing would be to acknowledge the problems and try to tackle them, rather than ignore them as some councillors are quite clearly doing. The fashion that the Labour Party have seemed to adopt is a see no evil speak no evil attitude, this is something that the BNP will work hard alongside people in the different communities to put an end to.
