Man stabbed at music awards.

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by Barrack Room Lawyer, Nov 16, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. One man has been stabbed and two others wounded during a music awards ceremony in south-east London, police have said.

    The man was seriously hurt while two others had minor injuries at the Urban Music Awards at the O2 arena.

    Scotland Yard received reports of the attack shortly after 2210 GMT, and one man has been arrested.

    Officers initially cleared the room, but the audience were allowed back inside, although it appears the ceremony has been abandoned.

    The victims have been to taken to hospital, but their injuries are not thought to be life threatening.

    Andre Nevling, 24, said a woman sitting at his table was "covered" in blood.

    "Obviously the guy who got stabbed must have run straight past her and she's pretty shaken up," he said.

    Mike Muller, 38, from London, said there was a lot of confusion and hysteria.

    "The company I work for, Intensify Youth, were presenting an award. Our man was just about to go on stage and present the award when this happened.

    "The irony is Intensify Youth is a project that aims to combat knife crime so this is really disappointing."

    Police put a cordon in place outside the arena and guests were questioned before being allowed to leave.

    Estelle, Adele, Leona Lewis, Dizzee Rascal and Duffy were among the performers nominated for awards, but it is not yet known which celebrities were attending.

    Some people at the event said security was poor.

    Natalie Williams, 32, said: "Before anything even happened I commented to my boyfriend, because we live nearby and come here a lot, and we usually get screened coming into the building. Tonight there was nothing."

    Chris Miller, who was reviewing the awards for an online music guide, said people were wandering into the press room without a pass.

    "Even when we were waiting outside in the press area for stars to arrive, it was a melee," he said.

    "The security was so slack."

    An O2 spokesperson said: "Nothing of this nature has ever taken place in the venue before and all the usual stringent security measures were in place.

    "We are working closely with the police to understand how this happened. Our thoughts are with the victims of the attack."

    Kadeem would of been proud.
     
  2. What do they expect? They get a bunch of "urban" musicians, which is code for egotistical would-be gangsters. Hype them up with violent rhetoric and reward them for it. Then people act surprised when thse sociopaths go around trying to kill each other.
     
  3. Maybe they could had out knives and other "gang" weapons on the door, when everyones in, lock the doors and let them "mash each other up". Last man standing gets upmost respect and a life sentence.
     
  4. Pardon me for be ignorant, but wtf is 'Urban' anyway? Are you allowed to make urban music if you live in the countryside in a posh cottage? What about if you live smack bang in the middle of London, as urban as it gets, but are unfortunate enough to be white?
     
  5. good effort but no score for the sweepstake :twisted:
     
  6. No doubt 'gangsta massives' will be lamenting a lost talent; along the same lines as that kid who was shot last week.
     
  7. Respekt - this calls for a poem from the Gangsta War Poet MC B&T himself innit ?

    I wonder if he said "Go on then - stab me"

    You would think people would learn.
     
  13. Evil forces seem to have removed any trace of the "go on, shoot me thread".
     
  14. You'd think it would have occured to these "souljas" by now that they can get all the "respec" they want off their inbred pointless simian "homies", the rest of civilisation still hates them and thinks they're a waste of space.
    If I was a gang-starrr coming to that realisation I'd prolly commit seppuku out of embarrasment.
     
  15. Steady on Mr D...if Jacqui Smith hears this, she'll be claiming the stabbing as evidence that the war on gun-crime is being won!
