UK Teen Predicts Own Death On Violent London Street

 

Just a few weeks before 16-year-old Ben Kinsella was stabbed to death by a gang of black youths, he wrote a creative writing essay describing his own death. The essay was found after Ben was killed and contains numerous similarities with events.

Ben was attacked after attempting to pacify an argument outside a bar in Islington, North London. He was stabbed by at least 4 different blades in the attack and died of blood-loss in the arms of a friend, Louis Robson as he tried to save Ben.

In the chilling piece of text Ben describes the "monstrosity society has become". Ben was an 'A' grade student who wanted to be a graphic designer. He is the 17th teenager to be killed in London alone this year. Police have arrested 3 teenagers.

  Chilling  
 
This story sent a chill down my spine, especially as pictures of this kid were in the article. It's like he knew what was going to happen.

This is a reflection on how utterly vile British society has become. That a *child* can write, with startling clarity, about the events which would end his life.

I doubt this kid was psychic, he just knew the evil on Britain's streets. Truly chilling stuff.

  Is it possible that this was not a prediction  
 
rather, it served as instructions? Could the people who killed him have known him or read the essay he wrote?

Oh, there's a typo in the first paragraph, you need to drop the "b" from "numberous".

  Help Me Decide on My Vacation:  
 
a) London, where I can stay for free with friends

b) Amsterdam

c) Dublin, maybe to get lucky and see Tom Waits in concert

d) Barcelona



(option A quickly quickly seems unappealing)

  Hmm  
 
I am very glad i live in the north of england, and in a small village in the countryside, never have to worry about things like that.

Its so sad, and no, he's not physcic, he just understood society.

Another point, i myself am 19, i cannot wait until i am 20 so i no longer get classed as a hooligan teenager.

A hooligan adult?

I've never been to Dublin but I have the other 3.

Don't let stories like this put you off London. It's still a great place to visit if you're into culture and especially history. It has some great art galleries and museums as well as famous landmarks such as The Tower of London and Big Ben etc. The chances of you getting stabbed looking round the National Science Museum are slim to none.

Amsterdam's great for a stag night, or just if you're thing is weed and strip joints but I'm not sure I'd go there for a nice cultured vacation. Not to knock the place but it's generally just full of rowdy (although friendly) drunk and high English and Americans.

Barcelona is a beautiful city, especially if you get the sun. Again, there's lots to see like the amazing Nou Camp stadium and the Ramblas.

Tough choice.

Dublin is a nice place too, everything's expensive there though! I'm thinking it will be a while before I go anywhere that uses the Euro, the way the exchange rate is at the moment it's just too expensive :-(

London is good though, I've been there loads of times and have never been stabbed/attacked/harrassed or anything like that! It's got something for everyone really, if you like sight-seeing there are all the famous landmarks - Westminster, Tower Bridge, Buckingham Palace... if you like culture and arts there are plenty of museums, art galleries and theatres, if you like shopping then there are so many different areas with different types of shops from highstreet and designer brands to quirky independent stores.

Just how far north do you live?

I'm in Newcastle, the northern-most city in England :-)

  So with all this prediction going on  
 
Did anyone have the foresight to ask about this weeks lottery?

Ok, Ok... I'll get me coat! :P

On a serious note... I agree with Claridus. This lad obviously knew the state of the UK.

That really helps.

The state of any Society is completely attributable to the Government of that Society. The government's failure will lead to non re-election..
