    Unhappy Liverpool, UK--Another Tragedy Despite "No Handguns Allowed"

    3rd Youth Arrested in UK Boy's Killing

    LIVERPOOL, England (AP) - Police arrested a third teenager Friday in the shooting of an 11-year-old boy whose death has confronted a shocked Britain with the problem of youth violence and gang culture.

    The victim, Rhys Jones, was kicking a soccer ball around with friends Wednesday night when he was hit in the back of the neck by a bullet - reportedly fired by one of two youths riding by on a BMX bicycle. Police said they believed a long-barreled, black pistol was used.

    Two youths, ages 14 and 18, were detained by police Thursday on suspicion of murder, and released on bail within hours. Assistant Chief Constable Patricia Gallan said a 16-year-old was arrested Friday.

    Yet another tragedy that couldn't have happened, because handguns are illegal in the UK. I fear the island nation is too far gone, but hope I'm wrong.....

    Prayers for comfort for the family and friends go up, and hopes for swift justice for the guilty!

    Another tragedy ...... but hey - no amount of gun law control will stop these types of event.


    Here's another .. Angels bike rider shot on freeway - so yet again, some bad guys had guns.

    Anyone is nieve in the extreme to think that banning legal guns will do much at all to affect criminal use. But hey - that's logical - my mistake.
