So we’re at one shooting per week in Surrey, on average.
There has been seven shootings in Surrey in 2018, with the most recent one, at least at this time of writing, on Friday night.
In past years it has been even worse in Surrey, with 59 shootings during 2017, and 61 in 2016.
In 2015 there were 88.
Still, the year is young. It’s been said ad nauseam, but we’ll say it again – people who know the identity of those responsible for putting innocents in danger through their reckless, infantile attempts to settle disputes on our streets must do the right thing and turns these violent knuckleheads in to police.
Police must then build good cases against them, to present to Crown prosecutors.
The prosecutors must then summon all their cranial powers and gifts of argumentation to convince judges to not give these street shooters a break, ever.
The judges must then slam-dunk these criminals’ sorry selves into prison, hopefully until they’re so old they forget how to hold a gun, or their trigger-finger falls off, whichever comes first.
It’s not our intention to be glib with so grave a matter, but how can you say it, really? It may not be a simple task, but it certainly is necessary.
Get these shooters off our streets, please.
