17 year old sentenced to 11 years in prison for the manslaughter of Daniel Gee Jamieson

MERSEYSIDE Police have said that they:- "welcome the sentencing of a Gateacre teenager to 11 years in prison for the manslaughter of 16 year old Daniel Gee-Jamieson, in Belle Vale, in July 2018."

Then Owen Cousins, aged 17, was arrested, on Wednesday, 4 July 2018, and later charged and since, he has been convicted of manslaughter, at Liverpool Crown Court.

We are told that Liverpool Crown Court in the trial heard how the:- "Emergency services were called to Belle Vale Road after a report of a 16 year old boy having been stabbed, at around 9pm, on Tuesday, 3 July 2018." Liverpool Crown Court also heard about the extensive Police investigation into the incident, that later established:- "2 groups of youths that had congregated in a nearby field for a fight that night, whereupon a knife was produced and the offender, Daniel Gee Jamieson, stabbed Daniel."

Speaking after the sentencing, Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector John Middleton, said:- "It was tragic last year to see such a young life ended as a consequence of someone recklessly carrying and using a knife. Hopefully today's sentencing at least gives Daniel's family and friends some form of closure and comfort as they continue to come to terms with their loss. Tackling violence and knife crime is not something police and the Courts can do alone. We continue to work closely with schools and other partners across Merseyside to educate young people about the devastating consequences, which Daniel's death sadly shows. We want parents, guardians and young people themselves to help reinforce this message – if you are caught carrying a knife, you are reducing your future prospects. We would urge anyone of any age to think before they consider carrying a knife, whatever the reason. If you know somebody who is carrying a knife when they go out I would urge you to come forward and tell us, so we can take the appropriate action. We will act on all information reported to us to make our streets safer."

Anyone with information can help help to stop more deaths via calling Merseyside on:- 101 or contacting Crimestoppers line anonymously on:- 0800 555 111.

NSPCC comment after sentencing of vicar Charles "Gordon" Dickenson

NSPCC comment after sentencing of a retired Vicar, Charles "Gordon" Dickenson, 89,at Liverpool Crown Court, who has admitted to 8 counts of sexual assault against his victim in the 1970's.

An NSPCC spokesperson said:- "Dickenson's arrogance in believing he would get away with this awful abuse was bolstered by the Diocese of Chester's failure to act. While this apology is important, it's vital that lessons are learned. Child abuse can ruin lives and it is so important that when survivors bravely come forward, they know they will be listened to and action taken against the perpetrators. We hope that the victim identified in this case is given every support to heal, and that the justice he has finally received sends a message to others that they can come forward, and they will be listened to."

For help and support, children can now contact Child Line, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, on:- 0800 1111 or by visiting:- ChildLine.Org.UK. Adults with concerns about a child can contact the NSPCC helpline, in confidence, on:- 0800 808 5000 or via visiting:- Help@NSPCC.Org.UK.

Liverpool's reaction to the Christ Church New Zealand terrorist attacks

THE Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson said that:- "Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of New Zealand, our flag is at half mast at our Town Hall. The cowardice of this attack on innocents at prayer, is in stark contrast to the bravery of the New Zealand Police dignity of the New Zealand people."

A Merseyside Police spokesman said:- "We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the people who have been affected by the terrorist attacks in New Zealand. We are in contact with our mosques locally to offer our sympathy and reassurance and will continue to engage with our communities of all faiths. The public will also see an increased police presence in our faith communities and we will continue to work with all our partners to provide reassurance to our communities and would ask everyone to continue to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity. We stand together with all our communities and partners and will continue to work tirelessly with them to counter such threats no matter where they come from."

Many others have also took to social media, from all religions and races, to condemn the attack.

World Head Of The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Condemns New Zealand Attacks

THE World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the Fifth Khalifa (Caliph), His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad has strongly condemned the terrorist attack that took place on 15 March 2019, in New Zealand. Speaking from London, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:- "On behalf of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community worldwide, I express my deepest sympathies and condolences to all those affected by the barbaric terrorist attack that has taken place in Christchurch. Such heinous and utterly inhumane attacks must be condemned in the strongest possible terms. It is a grave tragedy that dozens of innocent Muslims have lost their lives whilst joining together for worship. All people, no matter their faith or belief, have the right to worship peacefully. This tragic event should serve as a lesson and warning to other countries of the developed world that we must join together to tackle all forms of racial, ethnic and religious hatred with wisdom and with a firm hand. Our heartfelt prayers are with the victims of these attacks and all those who have been affected. May the perpetrators of this evil act be promptly brought to justice."
