    On my way to the Co-Op this evening I saw the shrine of flowers and notes left at the scene of the murder. It included a photograph of the victim. Just a young, fresh faced 17 y.o. boy with his whole life ahead of him.

    Barely 5 metres away from that spot, the flowers left at the location of last month’s still unresolved fatal quadruple hit-and-run still stood at the scene. A most poignant and sad short walk :(

    So Leigham Vale is closed again (from just before the bridge from the TH end). The letter said for resurfacing but a neighbour said that there is an old pipe that's been left down there that they need to remove, so they're digging up to do that.

    Hi everyone,

    I am on my way home from the Tulse Hill Hotel, who were playing great background music and I had quite a few pints. This might be the drink talking, but I am upset.

    On my way back, I passed the site of the muder of young Kyall Parnell. Already the flowers are beginning to wilt, the written messages fading, the teddy is covered in exhaust soot from the road. He is already becoming something of the past, although I am sure there are many for whom his death will be a wound until the day they die.

    What's really pissing me off is that I am also a member of 'Brockwell Tranquility' on facebook. About not letting Lambeth host a festival in Brockwell. I love Brockwell and don't want to see a festival of that scale in there and have the parkrun disrupted but Brockwell Tranquility has 833 members, public meetings are being organised. Posters. Letters to elected representatives. Solicitors. Collections. It's every other message on Facebook.

    A 17 year old boy has been stabbed to death on our streets and already his memory is fading.

    I don't mind that people want to protect our park, I love our park, and I am the first to admit that I have done nothing about Kyall Parnell. But a young boy is slain on our streets and he's just gone. We've got it all wrong. We should be demanding answers, asking questions about how we can allow a culture to develop where this could happen. Not about a festival.

    I am 41 years old and when I was 17 years old my thoughts were around girls, getting out at the weekend, which offy might serve me, clothes, school. Even though we're 25 years down the road, and I grew up in an entirely different situation to here, I am sure Kyall dreamt of what I dreamt at that age.

    I am sure there is also a poor mother whose son will be locked up for this and she will carry that burden until she dies. And her stupid fucking son who after a few years will realise that while he has been the one who was the aggressor, he slashed a big fucking hole in his own life as well. He murders someone at 17 and all of a sudden he's 40 and still having to address his family across a table while being monitored. Toss him out onto the streets at 45 and see how he gets on.

    I don't know what we can do, how we can prevent it happening again, how we could have prevented it. But surely we should be more exercised by the murder of a young boy on our streets than a festival damaging the grass. There is a police meeting in Chatsworth Way on 22nd Jan and I am going to go along and see what they have to say.

    I am sorry to highlight Brockwell Tranquility, it could be any groundswell of public opinion. Electric cars, vegetarianism, Brexit, Donald Trump. But there was a beautiful boy killed at the bottom of my road and he is being forgotten.

    In vino veritas.

    The sober me wouldn’t have written the above, but I think the point stands so I am not going to take it down.

    The mood there must have been particularly sober following the recent violent death of the Late Justyna Kalandyk - based on the reports, their staff and management may well have been the last people to whom she spoke before her tragic death.


    The Late Justyna Kalandyk: Anyone with information or footage concerning the manner in which she was killed on the morning of Monday 11 December 2017 is asked to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Unit at Merton on 020 8543 5157 or contact via @MetCC.

    Her friends and relatives are free to post tributes to her on this thread. ​

    This is 17-year old Kyall Parnell from Thornton Heath, a former Dunraven school pupil, who was stabbed to death Norwood Road near the junction with Station Rise at around 10.43pm on 31 December 2017 Year''s Eve ...


    ... he was pronounced dead at the scene at 11.38pm. A post-mortem gave the preliminary cause of death as a stab wound to the heart.

    Following his death, his mother Katrina paid tribute to her “amazing” son, who had recently enrolled on a bricklaying apprenticeship.

    She said: “He was loved. This shouldn’t have happened. These boys need to stop doing what they’re doing.

    “My boy was amazing, he was smart. He had potential to go places. They would be calling me and telling me he was the smartest boy in the class.

    “He needed to be doing active things. He was good boy. These young boys need to stop and think, they need to look after each other. This is someone’s life.”

    Kyall’s grandmother Maida Grant, 67, also called to an end for the bloodshed.

    Speaking from her home, half a mile from where her grandson died, she told the Evening Standard:

    “This is happening too much. Every day if there is an argument, a knife is always involved. If they don’t get a response they want, they still draw a knife. “It’s as if life is cheap and they don’t think of the consequences.”

    Ms Grant added: “His mother was the last person that he spoke to. He told her he was going to a party. He was loving, he always liked hugs. Christmas Eve was the last time I saw him.

    On 10 January 2018, at Southwark Coroner’s Court, it was revealed that the 16-year-old boy who stabbed Kyall Parnell to death may not be charged with murder because he "acted in self-defence", police have said.

    Police said Kyall was himself armed with a knife and had behaved “very aggressively” towards his attacker, chasing him through the south London district.

    Detective Inspector Ian Titterrell, from the Metropolitan Police's Homicide and Major Crime Command, told the court Kyall was with a group of friends on a bus when another group including the unnamed 16-year-old boarded.

    "As those three males walked up to the top deck where Kyall and his friends were sitting, there was immediately a confrontation,” he added.

    "The three males who had just got on at Tulse Hill got off the bus and they were pursued by Kyall and his friends, with two of the males seeking refuge in a convenience store.

    "Witnesses had seen the chasing group in possession of knives and Kyall is seen in very clear CCTV on the route 68 bus to approach an individual in a very aggressive manner with his hand placed towards his left hip area - there was a suggestion of something glinting.

    "A knife was found on Kyall afterwards. The male, fearing for his safety, has stabbed Kyall once in the chest. This stab wound pierced the heart and it's that that led to his death.”

    DI Titterrell said that during the confrontation, Kyall’s friends told him to “stab him, finish him off”, which the younger boy claimed caused him to take out a knife from his bag before plunging it into the victim in an attempt to protect himself.

    The 16-year-old, who was arrested and bailed, told police he had been stabbed before in attacks involving Kyall, from Thornton Heath in south London.

    DI Titterrell said the Tulse Hill investigation was ongoing but at this stage the Crown Prosecution Service had indicated that it would not charge the attacker with a homicide offence because of the “real issue” of self-defence.

    The inquest was opened and adjourned to a date to be fixed.

    Nanker Phelge Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.

    I suspect the lives of a lot of the people behind the Brockwell Tranquility 'movement' aren't especially affected by the social issues that lead to young men killing each other on our streets.

    I’m not either, but I see the absolute horror.

    Even with GarveyLives ’ article above, suggesting that Kyall Parnell was the aggressor, it’s still fucking awful and he didn’t deserve to die. So many people are thinking that it’s just black kids doing what black kids do, but if you’re in the position where you’re carrying a knife, society has failed you.

    Well, I think your original point still stands. There are people willing to get up and make a noise because a music festival might result in someone taking a piss in their garden, while a kid dying on their doorstep is just something terrible in the news and a pile of flowers on the street.

    ...and that doesn't add up.

    You're also right that it isn't just black kids doing what black kids do. It's frightened and disillusioned kids doing what frightened and disillusioned kids do. black kids are not born murderers.

    Thanks. I ordered on deliveroo for the first time recently and got a pizza express pizza which was basically uncooked so I complained and they credited me. I don’t like deliveroo cos you can’t add any changes/comments. I’ll try those places though. Ta.

    I became rather fascinated by the delightfully pointless way your mouse can make the social media balloons at the top of the web page move around to no particular purpose. :)
    The menu looks interesting although they're certainly not particularly cheap. I fancy giving them a go if I'm in the area.

    Addome are absolutely lovely people. I haven't been there in ages but we took my Dad for his 70th a few years ago and went once or twice apart from that for special occasions and they were simply lovely to us.

    Once again I have absolutely no idea what you are going on about. I used to make balloons from bubblegum, I used to make animals from balloons, (I had instructions for that), but how my mouse makes a balloon is beyond me.

    Look at the website you linked to. Five red 'ballons' with links to social media appear under the menu. Hover your mouse over those graphics.

    Sorry I think you must have checked the balloon box in a menu somewhere. Does anyone else funky balloons?

    I'm upset I don't get to see funky balloons. :(

    Edit- mobile no and another work pc no.
