They did far more than stab him, they've also taken away the only bit of independence he had, which took us almost two years to prepare him for. I'm now too frightened to let him back out, and I'm getting the fallout from that too.

The "casual" acceptance of knives led to the death of 16-year-old Hani Hicham Abou El Kheir, a Metropolitan Police officer said after five men were sentenced to life in prison.
After sentencing, Detective Chief Inspector Neil Attewell said:
Hani had been out with friends when he was chased and set upon en masse.
The frenzied attack through the streets of Pimlico left at least two of the gang members with injuries, which gives a clear indication of the ferocity at which they attacked Hani. Sadly Hani stood very little chance of being able to escape.
