I’ve heard the guy that got stabbed is the same guy who killed the polish man at the stow so doubt he’s gonna be innocent bystander

The guy who got stabbed is indeed the same one who accidentally killed the Polish man Definitely not innocent as he's been in trouble with the law several times since but may be just coincidence or bad karma?

@kacey, bad karma for sure. A couple of years ago his best mate was half beaten to death and left crippled, these children need to realise that the tuff life they try to live isn’t really for them. Unfortunately with the families they are from there left with little hope

@unknow p! Sorry do I know you?? Obviously dont reconise your name!!! I'm the parent of the boy that was beaten and left brain damaged! You must be pretty perfect to pass that judgement!

😂😂 u people need to get a life. I bet my life that none of you would even try to save someone’s life if you ever witnessed something similar but you all are a true keyboard warriors quick to speculate and drop names like you have the right. This is what you call a failed society we are living in everyone need a knife and stab proof vest otherwise u get chopped up and dumped in a pond

@Wayne isn’t the lad a relative of yours? Remind us all - how many times has this “innocent” person been arrested and had to stand trial over the last 5 years? And for what crimes…. If you’re not sure on the number, pop his name into the search bar on yourharlow. The crimes are horrendous and there is NO excuse. This boys name is mud within the town, just as the Brinkley name and a few others have been for decades. If you all loved eachother as family the way you claim to, you’d have made sure he wasn’t on the pathway to become the next Tommy Jones a long time ago. Family intervention, but no, he’s just had generations of degenerates surrounding and likely encouraging him down wrongun pathways. Probably draining tens of, if not hundreds of thousands of pounds of tax payer cash. Utterly selfish behaviour. He got lucky this time, but no doubt there will be more bloodshed and revenge headlines to follow in the coming months. Hopefully he will be just as lucky escaping that one and the one after that, and the one after that…. Slightly unrealistic though don’t you think? It’s honestly an embarrassment to the entire town when the small minority think that way of life is normal. Want better for yourselves, and better still, the kids you all insist on having and not raising properly! His not innocent wayne, so don’t preach to the rest of us like we are the idiots you refer to us as…

A crime is a crime. We have a justice system that deals with this. Someone was assaulted and possibly, could have lost their life on the street in-front of many people. Gangs, teens and whatever people out there that think violence and crime is the way forward should think again. Families can be ruined by violence, crime and corruption. A life is a life. Let’s thank the heavens that on this occasion, nobody died. Wow!! To all of you commenters.

The person in question is a complete arse no matter how he got caught up in the crime way of life that is just accepted in so many countries world wide have you forgotten this person killed an innocent Polish Man a few years ago and got away with it yes we have police, courts and a judicial system which is not fit for purpose obviously in the long run Anyhoo all Power to the Tories they’ll save us all as there’s absolutely NO CORRUPTION WITHIN THAT POLITICAL PARTY OF THIEVES IS THERE?? 🤣😂🤣😂

@carly sorry about your son, but surely after his near miss one would think he would quiet down a little, instead he still thinks he’s a little tuff man when clearly he’s not. It must be so worrying as a parent to know your children are hated so much their life can be taken in a split second, as for being perfect I doubt no one is dear! But my children never been arrested or rushed to hospital nearly dead! Instead they got an education bought there own houses have now have there own family, I think the parents of these lads need to take a long hard look in the mirror and own the fact they have failed there children and that is very sad

Wow someone gets stabbed and all the Karen’s jump on. How ridiculous! I hope the young man is ok and the family get justice. God I hope none of you have to go through any of the upset he’s family have. All should be ashamed.
