| 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.
A very light sleeper
