Adam Swellings, 19, from Crew, was released on bail only to breach orders and kill again within 10 hours [SN reported]. Shadow Home Secretary David Davis explained that it is now vital to examine the reasons behind courts lack of actions on violent cases.
Mr. Newlove was kicked to death while his daughter looked on in horror. The family vehicles had been damaged 4 times and as soon as it was dark Mr. Newlove would not let his family even go to the shops due to gangs on the streets.
The Shadow Home Secretary, David Davis, described the case a "hideous demonstration" of the government's failure to address violence among young people. MPs are now asking questions about this case.
