I don't know about anyone else here from the UK, but I'm regularly sickened when I hear the news or open the papers here lately. Seems the whole country is descending into, what I can only characterise as, crimes by chavs. Usually in their teenage years or early 20s, probably no-hopers, who seem to not give a second thought to stabbing or slashing away people's lives.

What makes it even worse is the fact that most of the sentences handed down are usually short, and the scum seem to get out in half the time or less due to 'good behaviour'. Seems there isn't much of a detterent effect in the law anymore.

Well I think its fcuking wrong. Its even more wrong that in a couple of years at most, these scum will be walking our streets again, free to get on with their lives - compare to the victims whose lives have been stolen away. And what do the crims do in their few months inside? Loaf in their cells, housed and fed on taxpayer's money. No breaking rocks in the hot sun for these poor dears!

I think its disgusting that these people will be allowed back into society and many will go about what they will without their horrific crimes hanging over them. I also think its wrong that the victims will soon become nothing more than a memory to those who held them dear.

In order that the sickening things these people did aren't forgotten or washed away by the next headline, I'm going to kick off with posting this:

Youths quizzed over man's murder

http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/images/44055000/jpg/_44055708_newlove203dotjpg Mr Newlove confronted a gang of up to 15 youths, police say

Six youths are still being questioned about the death of a man who was attacked by a gang outside his home.
Garry Newlove, 47, was assaulted by teenagers in Station Road North in Warrington, Cheshire, on Friday night. He died in hospital on Sunday.
Neighbours said the father-of-three was attacked after he approached a group of youths causing criminal damage.
The youths being questioned are all male and aged between 15 and 19. Police said inquiries were ongoing.
Three further youths have been released without charge.
Det Ch Insp Martin Cleworth, leading the inquiry, said police were still looking for other people in connection with the attack.

Prosecutor Michael Shorrock had told the court the gang, who had been drinking, had turned on the young couple simply because they were Goths and were dressed differently.
Harris admitted punching Mr Maltby once in the face, but claimed he played no further part in the attack.
Both Harris and Herbert pleaded guilty to causing grievous bodily harm to Mr Maltby, along with three other males, two aged 17 and one 16, who still cannot be named.
Judge Anthony Russell QC praised the families of both Miss Lancaster and Mr Maltby for their dignity "during what must have been a very, very harrowing ordeal".
http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/images/44486000/jpg/_44486793_robmatltby203_padotjpg Robert Maltby was seriously injured


He also thanked witnesses who had helped the victims and had given evidence in court. He ordered them to be awarded £250 each.
The judge said that he was duty bound to give Harris and Herbert life sentences but that he would set the tariffs on 28 April.
In a statement released after the verdict, Sylvia Lancaster said her daughter's death was a tragedy to both the family and wider society.
She said: "First, obviously, I have lost an adoring and adorable daughter. She was intelligent, brave, courageous and had a social conscience beyond her years.
"Her death has also ruined the lives of those responsible as well as the lives of their families.
"On a wider scale, it is a tragedy for a society which, in the past, has prided itself on its tolerance.

http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/nol/shared/img/v3/start_quote_rbdotgif I do not think Herbert and Harris have recognised how violent the attack was http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/nol/shared/img/v3/end_quote_rbdotgif


Det Supt Mick Gradwell


"I am convinced Sophie was killed simply because of the way she looked. She did not necessarily conform to the ideals of those who took her life."
Det Supt Gradwell said it was one of the most violent murders he had come across in his lengthy career.
He said: "It was a totally unnecessary and appalling set of circumstances.
"I do not think Herbert and Harris have recognised how violent the attack was.
"They have just done it without thinking but they have seemed to have enjoyed it and carried on remorselessly kicking at two very defenceless people who were unable to protect themselves because of the level of violence inflicted upon them.
"There was a total lack of parental control.
"I am very critical of some of the parents involved. I really don't think they have taken completely seriously how repulsive this incident was." He said that when Harris was initially interviewed about the assaults he was "laughing and joking" with his mother. Goths emerged as a youth subculture in the early 1980s. Although initially used to describe a form of music, it has evolved to encompass literature, art and fashion, with its exponents typically dressing in dark clothing.

Some things need to change in our society, big time. In the last case of the young lady kicked to death, the brain-dead scum were laughing and joking, with their PARENTS, whilst in Court!

Is there no respect for your fellow man or human life anymore?

Yeah it's disgusting. I live near where Gary Newlove was murdered. Warrington is chock full of inbred, parasitic, sponging chav scum. Shooting would be too good for them IMO.

Stab woman made 'terrorist' claim

http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/images/44423000/jpg/_44423844_marymckay203dotjpg Mary McKay admitted attempting to murder Tarik Husan

A 32-year-old woman who stabbed an Asian teenager she called a terrorist has been jailed for six years.
At the High Court in Edinburgh, Mary McKay admitted attempting to murder Tarik Husan, 17, in Tollcross Road, Glasgow, on 10 September, 2007.
Lord Menzies said: "It seems to me this was a completely unprovoked attack on an unarmed stranger in the public street without any explainable motive."
McKay will be supervised for two years after her release.
She stabbed Mr Husan in the chest and arm at a bus stop in Glasgow and told him "you're all terrorists".
'Expressed remorse'
McKay, who had taken cocaine, later claimed she had gone to stab her mother, but had missed the bus and stabbed Mr Husan instead.
The court heard that after the attack she walked into a shop still clutching the knife and waited for the police to arrive.
"I just stabbed a guy with the same colour of skin as a terrorist," she later told police.
Mr Husan, 17, had only arrived in Scotland a short time before the attack.
Sentencing, Lord Menzies said McKay would have been facing nine years in prison if she had not pleaded guilty.
"You stabbed this unarmed complete stranger on the left side of his chest and it seems to me that the fact you were under the influence of cocaine at the time was no excuse, indeed it is quite the reverse," he said.
Defence counsel Allan Nicol said McKay had been a victim of violence and used drugs to block out memories of abuse. "Immediately after the offence she expressed remorse for this," he added.

Murder charge over fatal stabbing

http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/images/44483000/jpg/_44483006_kawansharif_203dotjpg Mr Sharif moved to England from Iraq six years ago

A 23-year-old man has been charged with murder following the fatal stabbing of an Iraqi man in Hull.
Goran Ali Hahmed is due to appear before Hull Magistrates' Court later over the death of Kawan Ashraf Sharif. Humberside Police said the 24-year-old died of a stab wound to the neck after an incident in Bathurst Street late on Friday night. Mr Sharif, who lived in Sandhurst Grove, Leeds, moved from Iraq to England six years ago, police said.

It looks like racially-motivated crimes are on the rise too.

I really do despair, these are the same scum who would go and lynch a pediatrician!

I just typed 'stabbing' into the BBC News searchbox, do it, you'll be amazed at the number of returns, esp recent ones you don't hear about!
http://search.bbc.co.uk/cgi-bin/search/results.pl?uri=%2F&scope=all&go=toolbar&q=stabbing

I had a row with some chavs on the train the other week, makes you think how little the people in these cases did to lose their lives (often nothing!), that our society is becoming a dangerous place to be...

Scary stuff.

Girl charged over school stabbing

http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/images/44002000/jpg/_44002418_203searchdotjpg It is not yet known what weapon was used in the attack

A 14-year-old girl has been charged after another girl was stabbed in the stomach at a school near Bristol.
The stabbed girl, 13, is said to be in a stable condition in hospital after the incident at Filton High School.
The 14-year-old girl has been charged with wounding with intent, and with possession of a bladed implement. She has been detained to appear at North Avon Youth Court later. Details of the weapon used in the stabbing have not been released.

Boy charged over school stabbing

A 16-year-old boy from north Devon has been charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm and possession of an offensive weapon in a public place. It follows the stabbing of a 15-year-old at Bideford College on 2 October last year. The 16-year-old was arrested and bailed later that day. The victim had to be treated for a wound to his abdomen and a bruised eye. The boy who has been charged is due to appear before North Devon Youth Court on 12 February 2008.

Kids too. Disturbing.

A lot of the BBC returns aren't from big cities where this sort of thing may be more expected, but from market towns and even rural areas and the like.

Again, all I can say is, I despair for our future.

I would like this thread to become something of an archive. I think it's one of lifes great injustices that after a few months spent loafing taxpayer-funded in prison, these people will be free to continue their lives, unlike the people, many decent people, who have had their lives stolen away. So lets not forget the scum who do this, and lets not forget the victims either.

I'd also appreciate it if people would add their own reports so that we can get a picture of just how widespread this is across the country. A lot of things happen that dont make the national news but are still pretty horrific, and I think we all need to be informed just how risky/$hitty the situ is.

What I want to know is why do all chavs look the same?

Pasty, usually spotty, crap hair, weak chins, gormless eyes, weedy physique. They all look like they must have been conceived by a dying sperm or something.:roll:

And the female ones are invariably fat as well.

I guess it's the end result of several generations of welfare dependents breeding. in societal terms we have allowed a situation to develop that goes against the Darwinian concept of the survival of the fittest.

Time for a cull - for the good of the nation :)

A chav is quite hard to define, but I suppose I will give it a whirl.

I suppose A V Ex Stab got the physical description right, they are also commonly seen wearing head-to-toe sportswear, despite probably having done no sport or phys since school.

Seem to appreciate nothing in life but cheap cider, rap music, and possibly drugs.

Some may describe as disenfranchised? Often I suppose they are no hopers with little interest in anything really.

It's bad enough when they are just leaching off the goodwill of society.

But recently they seem to exhibit no respect or value for human life, hence a 'crime wave' of late. They probably think it's 'cool' to kill, just like their rap heroes or in the movies or whoever they thing is 'sick' or gangster! Bad stuff.

Chav, anyone?

Chav (****ounced (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:****unciation) /ʧæv/, with 'ch' as in chair) also Charv/Charver (****ounced (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:****unciation) /ʧɑːv/) are mainly derogatory slang (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slang) terms in the United Kingdom (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Kingdom) for a stereotype (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stereotype) fixated on low quality or counterfeit goods.
The term appeared in mainstream dictionaries in 2005.[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-BBC-20050608-0)[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-Telegraph-20050810-1) There are regional variations; in the North East of England (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_East_England) the variant charv / charva is most commonly used (particularly in Newcastle upon Tyne (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newcastle_upon_Tyne) and Sunderland (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sunderland) areas, where the term originated.) and has been used since the early 1990s, while in the South East of England (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_East_England) and South West of England (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_West_England) chav is the usual form. The term differs depending on area and dialect; in Scotland, they are known as "neds (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ned_%28Scottish%29)".
What is unusual is that the vowel in charver is ɑ (as in 'far') and the mainstream UK equivalent uses the a (as in 'cat') vowel in chav which goes against the usual North-South (a/ɑ) vowel distinction.[3] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-BBC_North_East-2)
Response to the term has ranged from amusement to criticism that it is a new manifestation of classism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classism).[4] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-Wills_Fancy_Dress-3) The term has also been associated with juvenile delinquency (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juvenile_delinquency), the "ASBO (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-Social_Behaviour_Order) Generation", "Hoodie (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hoodie) culture", and "Yob culture (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yob_culture)".

8.1 Articles (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#Articles) //
[edit (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Chav&action=edit&section=1)] Etymology

The accepted etymology for "chav" is that it derives from the Romani (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romani_language) word "chavi", meaning a child.[5] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-quinion-4) Related words derived from the same source include "charva" meaning ********** (used in north-east England in a similar sense). In modern Spanish (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_language) "chaval", "chavo" or "chavón" means "lad" (eg: El Chavo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_Chavo), a Mexican television comedy whose principal character is a street orphan).[6] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-5)
Many folk etymologies (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Folk_etymology) have sprung up around the word. These include backronyms (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Backronym) such as "Council Housed (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Council_House) And Violent" and "Council House Adult Vermin".[7] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-webchat-6) It has also been suggested that pupils at Cheltenham Ladies' College (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheltenham_Ladies%27_College) and Cheltenham College (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheltenham_College) used the word to describe the younger men of the town ("Cheltenham Average").[8] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-7) Similarly, it has been thought to originate from the Medway Towns (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medway_Towns) where it was used to describe people from the town of Chatham (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chatham%2C_England) ("Chatham Average").

[edit (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Chav&action=edit&section=2)] Popularisation in the media

From its origins as a slang term, use of the word spread so rapidly that by 2004 it had become a hugely popular word in national newspapers and common parlance in the UK. Susie Dent (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susie_Dent)'s Larpers and Shroomers: The Language Report, published by the Oxford University Press (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxford_University_Press), designated it as the "word of the year"[9] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-8) in 2004.[10] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-larpers-9) A survey in 2005 found that in December 2004 alone 114 British newspaper articles used the word. The popularity of the word has led to the creation of sites devoted to cataloguing and mocking the "chav" lifestyle.
The "chav culture" has been portrayed extensively in British media:

The Welsh (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wales) rap (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hip_hop_music) group, Goldie Lookin' Chain (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goldie_Lookin%27_Chain), have been described as both embodying and satirising the chav aesthetic, though the group themselves deny any such agenda, simply making a mockery of the subject.[11] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-10) The British car tuning magazine Max Power (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_Power) once had a beige Mk3 Vauxhall Cavalier (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vauxhall_Cavalier) stickered to make it look like the Burberry check, named it the "Chavalier" and gave it to the band.
Footballer Wayne Rooney (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wayne_Rooney)[12] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-11) and girlfriend Coleen McLoughlin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coleen_McLoughlin),[13] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-12) rapper Lady Sovereign (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lady_Sovereign),[14] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-13) glamour model Jordan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jordan_%28Katie_Price%29),[15] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-14) actress Danniella Westbrook (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danniella_Westbrook),[16] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-dissertation-15), former Big Brother (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Brother_%28UK%29) contestant Jade Goody (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jade_Goody)[17] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-16) and Kerry Katona (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kerry_Katona)[18] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-17) have also been labelled "chavs" by British tabloids.
The popular character Lauren Cooper (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lauren_Cooper) and her friends Lisa and Ryan from the BBC's comedy series The Catherine Tate Show (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Catherine_Tate_Show) exhibit clear Chav style clothing, behaviour, mannerisms and musical interests, along with surly attitudes. Fellow sketch comedy series Little Britain (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Britain) features a character with some similarities, Vicky Pollard (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vicky_Pollard).
In the 2005 reality TV programme Bad Lads Army (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bad_Lads_Army): Officer Class, a number of small time thieves and street brawlers underwent 1950's style National Service Army training to see which of them would be worthy of becoming a British Army officer. The motto of the show was to convert "chavs" into "chaps".
In the UK TV series Doctor Who (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doctor_Who), the character Rose Tyler (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rose_Tyler) is referred to as a chav. When her consciousness is taken over by another character, she looks in a mirror and remarks "Oh my God, I'm a chav!" and later says upon re-entering her body "Oh great, chav-tastic again". This is apparently a reference to the character's attire rather than behaviour.
[edit (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Chav&action=edit&section=3)] Criticism of the stereotype

The widespread use of the chav stereotype has come under criticism; some argue that it amounts simply to snobbery (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snobbery) and elitism,[4] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-Wills_Fancy_Dress-3) and that serious social problems such as Anti-Social Behaviour Orders (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-Social_Behaviour_Order), teenage pregnancy, delinquency and alcoholism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alcoholism) in low-income areas should not be scoffed at. Critics of the term have argued that its proponents are “neo-snobs,”[19] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-18) and that its increasing popularity raises questions about how British society deals with social mobility (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_mobility) and class.[16] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-dissertation-15) In a February 2005 article in The Times (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Times), Julie Burchill (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julie_Burchill) argued that use of the word is a form of “social racism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racism),” and that such “sneering” reveals more about the shortcomings of the “chav-haters” than those of their supposed victims.[20] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-19) The writer John Harris (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Harris_%28critic%29) argued along similar lines in a 2007 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2007) article in The Guardian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Guardian).[21] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-20)
Burchill also produced a Sky One (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sky_One) television programme on the topic where she sought to link the word with the entire working-class population. The controversy around the term was also the subject of a Channel 4 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Channel_4) documentary in July 2005, simply entitled Chavs.

[edit (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Chav&action=edit&section=4)] Commercial effect

Burberry (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burberry), the clothing company whose products were initially associated with the stereotype, has argued that it is linked to counterfeit (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Counterfeit) versions of the clothing: "They’re yesterday’s news", stated Stacey Cartwright, the CEO (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chief_executive_officer) of Burberry. "It was mostly counterfeit, and Britain accounts for less than 10% of our sales anyway."[22] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-21) The company has taken a number of steps to distance itself from the stereotype. It ceased production of its own branded baseball cap (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baseball_cap) in 2004 and has scaled back the use of its trademarked checkered/tartan design to such an extent that it now only appears on the inner linings and other very low-key positions of their clothing.[23] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-22)[24] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-23) It has also taken legal action against high-profile infringements of the brand. In August 2006, a company introducing tuk-tuk (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuk-tuk) vehicles into the south coast resort of Brighton (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brighton), England (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/England) named one the "Chavrolet" which had it painted in the distinctive Burberry tartan. However, the company soon had to withdraw this vehicle after being threatened with proceedings for breach of copyright by the Burberry company.[25] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-24)
In 2005, Bluewater Shopping Centre (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluewater_Shopping_Centre) banned hooded tops from anywhere in their complex.[26] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-25) Pubs in Leicester (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leicester) announced that they would ban young people wearing certain fashion brands, including Burberry, due to a link between some of these brands and football hooliganism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Football_hooliganism).[27] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-26)
The large supermarket chain ASDA (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ASDA) has attempted to trademark the word "chav" for a new line of confectionery. A spokeswoman said: “With slogans from characters in shows such as Little Britain and the Catherine Tate Show providing us with more and more contemporary slang, our Whatever sweets — now nicknamed chav hearts — have become very popular with kids and grown-ups alike. We thought we needed to give them some respect and have decided to trademark our sweets.”[28] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav#cite_note-27)

Starship Troopers had some good predictions regarding youth gangs - public whippings of the parents was one punishment.

Would the British taxpayer be willing to foot the bill for all that DNA testing?...

Minefields need to be cleared, herd some of these valuable assets to humanity through them.

You say that like it's a bad thing :)
A bit more snobbery and elitism in the UK is exactly what we need. Standards have been slipping and dumbing-down has been going unchallenged for far too long.

Its what we fought two world wars for....the freedom to sneer,we need a return to shame no one is ashamed of anything anymore .

I saw plenty in San An', Ibiza. They just seemed completely drunk into stupor.

Drink probably wasn't responsible for their stupor thats their natural state,
San Antonio along with Falaraki and Ayia Napa are the summer destination of choice for ****witted chavs from every ****hole in the country you must have been mightily impressed by my compatriots.....

Yes I agree. In a way I am glad my grandparents have passed away - they got through two world wars and I think they would be appalled by the way things are going.

I don't remember Ayia Napa being that bad though. San An is just trashy... but not dangerous. Much gurning, vomiting and weird accents though ;-)
