Before this goes mad, I feel sorry for the kid and his parents and for whatever reason the actions of others was totally unacceptable. My thoughts are this according to social media and people who supposedly knew him and news reports he was a good kid with his head firmly screwed on. Why oh why was a 14yr riding a moped when the legal age is 16, surely his parents knew. As a parent of 2 lads and grown up girls I have always made sure they knew the difference between right and wrong and also what's legal or illegal.
Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    He was killed committing a crime.I doubt it was his Moped and we've all seen numerous videos on how these scroats "acquire" them.Yes it's sad he's dead but it will probably be drugs/gang related.
    The trouble with friends etc they always say "he was such a good egg...blah,blah,blah".
    Most of these stabbings are not random.

    BBC report now saying they hit him deliberately to knock him off and stab him in a targeted attack, they also mentioned it was in an area of high drug crime. Assuming they got the right guy we can all guess why it happened, which changes things a bit in my mind.

    That said, a friend of mine died at 14 on a moped while he was supposedly playing chicken on a football pitch. Different case to this as to my knowledge he wasn't involved in drugs and was just messing about but when that happened everyone said how well liked he was, the fact he shouldn't have been doing what he was doing was completely irrelevant to us and his family. Not sure anyone said he had his head screwed on though...

    The really depressing thing apart from thevloss of a life is that 14 year olds can be involved in crime so deeply that gangs will deliberately target them. It's something that we might have read about happening in some of the worst ghettoes in other countries but is now a part of life in the uk.
