Nothing really earth shattering here - except the ages of the gang who had planned and executed this cold-blooded killing. Having not followed too closely before, I had assumed the defendants to have been a bunch of young hotheads in their teens or twenties. Should I be shocked to discover that ALL the gang were blokes in their mid to late forties, except for the one in his fifties! As a man in my early forties - all the violent nutters from my youth who i bump into from time to time when out shopping locally have mellowed considerably and are generally ashamed of their pasts - these guys seem to have managed not to mellow and grow up at all. Sure, there are many 'professional' serious criminals who continue well into their forties and fifties (and thus could be argued to have not grown up either) but whacking some guy out because he is in a different gang? Surely that's what inner city youths are up to. Is it just me?
