Source: Nottingham Post

A loaded handgun, ammunition and £6,000 worth of drugs were found at a man's house during a police search. Vandell Wright, 23, was arrested on February 9 at his house in Merchant Street, Bulwell, following the search.

Judge Michael Stokes jailed him for seven years for possession of the gun, noting that a bullet was contained in the weapon. He was given two years for possession of the ammunition and three-and-half years for the drugs charge. These sentences are to run concurrently.

Detective Inspector Keith Priest said: *"The fact that both Wright and a potentially lethal firearm are now off the streets is excellent news for the people of Nottingham.

Comment: *Well I agree with the Inspector on what he said - but I'm still concerned about the Nottingham police service losing 288 officers in the government cut-backs, and now going to temporarily lose another 200+ officers, being taken to police the London Olympics!

"Nottingham Gang threatened to kill daughter during robbery"

Source: This is Nottingham

A gang of men threatened to kill a young girl during a robbery before getting away with cash and gold.

The four men targeted the home of takeaway owner Farooq Younis, in Woodthorpe, while he was abroad.

They went upstairs and found Mr Younis' wife Sarhat in one room with daughters Zaynah, 12, Zara, seven, and Sumaiya, three, wWhile the eldest daughter, 13-year-old Sanah, was asleep in her own room.

Mr Younis said the robbers moved all the children and his wife together and pulled the batteries and SIM cards out of their phones so they could not call for help.

They then threatened the family, saying they would kill one of the girls unless they gave them all their money. "They asked for the safe combination," said Mr Younis. "My wife said she didn't know it.

"Then they said they'd kill my daughter, and said, 'don't you care about your daughter?'."

He said his wife then gave them the combination code but, after they were unable to open the safe, the robbers made daughter Zaynah do it.

The men took a substantial amount of money and gold and made their getaway by car.

Comment: And still people come to Nottingham to live?

"Mother of Nottingham punch death victim: 'Law on punching killers must be changed'"

Source: Nottingham Post

The Mother of a teenager who was punched to death says the law should be reviewed - after her son's killer left another man with serious injuries. Liam Munn, 19, a promising footballer who played for Unity FC, was found unconscious outside the Halo nightclub, in Goldsmith Street, in the early hours of January 18, 2009. He died in an ambulance on the way to hospital.

His killer, Simeon Ferguson, had served 16 months of his two-year sentence when he was let out on licence.

Within two months he was back in court for punching a man in the back of his head - leaving him with a fractured skull and brain injuries.

Liam's mum Donna, 44, from Nuthall, is disgusted.

"The whole situation just guts me," she said. "It's like the guy that killed Liam thinks he's superhuman. That seems to be the mentality of young lads like that and it is not going to change unless you change the law and put them in prison and sentence them like you would someone who had shot or stabbed someone and that's the only way to make them think twice.

"It shouldn't matter how you kill someone, you should get a sentence strong enough to reflect the fact that you've killed someone and until that happens people are not going to stop doing this.

"Liam was on the verge of everything, he was 19, he had a girlfriend, a job - it was a huge waste. It's disgusting."

Comment: I agree with her all the way! But will those in power listen? Hah! My sympathy goes out to her.
