Six suspects (not pictured) have been rounded up by Metropolitan police after last week’s Grand Theft Auto V related robbery and stabbing. But police aren’t releasing their names…

Because of their ages.

From Yahoo News:

Three British teenagers have been charged over the stabbing and robbery of a man who was walking home after buying the blockbuster videogame “Grand Theft Auto V”, police said on Saturday.The 23-year-old victim was attacked in London in the early hours of Tuesday as he made his way home from a midnight launch event for the notoriously violent game. London’s Metropolitan Police said he was hit with a brick, stabbed and robbed of his mobile phone, watch and his copy of the game during the attack in Colindale, north London. Three teenagers, aged 14, 15 and 17, have been charged with robbery and grievous bodily harm with intent, a police spokesman said.They were due to appear before magistrates in Hendon, north London, on Saturday. Three other teenagers, aged 15, 17 and 18, have been released on bail until October. The victim remains in hospital in a stable condition, a police spokesman told AFP.

In the ultraviolent gun-free utopia that is Britain these days, is anyone surprised that all six of the suspects are teenagers? Does anybody remember the term ‘wilding?’

  1. I am guessing they aren’t named Charles, William, or Harry. Just sayin…

    There is something about modern day Britain that reminds me of A Clockwork Orange.

  3. David Sims says:

    I’m reasonably sure that the reason the teenager’s names are withheld is that they are not white. That’s how it usually is in the United States, anyway. White teenagers who break the law, even if it is a small criminal offense, are shown and named. Black teenagers who break the law, even if it is murder, are not shown and are not named. There are exceptions to that policy, of course. The exceptions seem to be getting more frequent lately, but nonetheless the fraction of whites among those who are identified as criminals is higher than the fraction of whites among those who actually are criminals.

    Notice that, for the purpose of illustration, five white men, unrelated to the incident being discussed, are portrayed as suspects of crime in a line-up.
