A barnesy crew female launched a vicious attack on
a girl outside a shop. The girl had called the barnesy member "edgy" and accused her of "thinking she owns the place". The
barnesy youth replied by punching her to the floor and repeatedly hitting her head off the curb before leaving her to be helped
up by on lookers.
A youth was told if he is seen in the area by barnesy
members he will be attacked.
An eventful day ended with the Barnes park
mob- the charver side of the barnesy crew seemingly being left out by the main crew after a series of incidents during the
day and over the past year or so.
The first incident of the day was unrelated
to the BPM. A car pulled up next to a man and a barnesy crew youth jumped out from the passenger seat and struck the man across
the head, on the back and in the stomach with a police style baton. His crime was apparently "taking the piss".
A barnesy crew member told me they thought
people were forgetting them and needed a reminder and some Barnes park mob members were firm targets.
Many in the barnesy crew claim the BPM holds
back everyone else and stops the group reaching full strength due to many not wanting to be seen "mobbing up" with charvers
which often holds back the crew from reaching its top numbers. That is just one of the problems which leads to tension between
the BPM and many others involved with the barnesy crew. The BPM is also accused of ignoring what older members say by continuing
to rob people of phones and money as they go through Barnes Park. There was previously a fight between the high Barnes crew and Barnes park mob when the Sunderland echo reported a youth being robbed at knifepoint in Barnes Park. There has also been a recent argument when some of the crew said that the BPM was with a set of youths
who they had been told to stay away from following previous trouble which included the attempted rape of a barnesy crew youths
A youth who carried out the attempted rape
was approached by barnesy crew youths and an argument began in which he admitted being part of the BPM again and said "the
barnes park would have HBC anyday". He was punched and thrown to the floor, kicked in the head twice and had his chest stamped
on. He was threatened with being stabbed if he kept mouthing off.
A car belonging to a BPM youth was attacked
and had two of its windows smashed and "HBC" scratched into the side of the car. He is said to have been involved in stealing
money from somebody in the park.
That night a BPM member was jumped at the
entrance to Barnes
Park and repeatedly
punched and kicked. They say he had been going behind the back of the main crew.
Drunken barnesy crew members walked up Chester
road and an LPC member stopped by the road on his bike, as cars wouldn’t stop to let him cross he began shouting racial
abuse at the drivers. A barnesy crew youth ran over and kicked him and the bike over. Other members laughed on, one said "shouldn’t
shout at the white man, paki cunt"
Southend vs Sunderland
6 barnesy crew members attacked a group of southend
fans who were chanting "newcastle" following the match. Other sunderland fans also confronted the home fans and police had
to seperate the two sets of fans. A pub was later damaged when fans flared up again as southend fans chanted for newcastle.
A window was smashed when a barnesy crew member hurled an ashtray towards the home fans.
After leaving a housepart a barnsey crew member
saw an LPC member walking down the backlane. He ran over and grabbed the asian by the head and pushed him down to the floor
and stamped on him as another youth watched on.
Aston Villa Vs Newcastle United
were'nt playing that day some barnesy headed to birmingham in the hope of confronting newcastle supporters. They struck lucky
when they saw a coach of newcasle fans arrive at a service station. Barnesy youths immediatly chanted "sunderland" and "barnesy
crew", when newcastle fans shouted back the barn esy crew saw it as a green ligh to fight and hurled full cans of lager at
the geordies before running towards them and scattering the small group of geordies who had looked to stand.
During the match the barnesy crew went into an asian area near
aston villas stadium. They had been told of asians here trying to confront the SYF last season. They chanted "BNP" and shouted
for asians to come out and fight but took no response.
The LPC attacked a home
of several brothers with links to the barnesy crew. They smashed windows of the house, slashed the car tyres and poured paint
over the car. Within 20 minutes barnesy members stood in the street armed with bats. They also drove around the back lanes
searching for the LPC members. Not ong later they found the LPC and were chased back down the back lane where they regrouped
and charged towards the LPC. One youth seen as a member of both SYF and barnesy appeared lashing out at the LPC with a walking
stick. The LPC eventually ran off and police arrived again. This erupted in the early hours and continued with police appearing
several times before trouble stopped.
