A very light sleeper

In March this year, Jerry Duggan was killed after admitting to being Jewish in a hostile environment. I heard about this because Jerry was a friend of my brother Screwy. Yesterday, The Times published an account of the inquest, which quashed the suggestion that Jerry's death was a suicide. There is also some analysis in the same paper. The inquest was also reported recently in The Guardian.

There is more background on Jerry's murder in this article in The Guardian of a few months ago.

I'm letting the articles speak for themselves, because last time I tried to comment on this horror I ended up being rather vehement at rysmiel, and generally degenerated into incoherent rage.
