Ian Baynham’s Alleged Trafalgar Square Murderers Face Their Courtroom Fate

Murdered last September in Trafalgar Square, Britain’s late Ian Baynham, then 62, might finally see some posthumous justice: The teens accused of beating him to death in a drunken rage, after he called them out for screaming homophobic slurs, are finally facing their murder trial.

Ruby Thomas, now 18, stands accused of calling Baynham a “fucking faggot” before the beat down (and after Baynham supposedly slapped Thomas in the face for calling him names while he walked with partner Philip Brown), while Joel Alexander, 20, landed the punch to the head that knocked him to the pavement and caused the brain injury that led to Baynham’s death. Another friend, Rachel Burke, then allegedly joined in on the beating, kicking and stomping on him; it appears she is not involved in the same trial.

    Typical london, there are plenty of dumb blondes wh0res like them and they love retard ghetto guys. This council flat trash is all over the city.
    And they are charged with manslaughter! Are you f*cking kidding me? This was murder.


    Bab, dumb blondes never show love to “retard ghetto guys” in the USA huh? It’s a murder case and you are worried about white women dating black men? You are such a loser. And, why call this man a “retard ghetto guy”? He looks stylish to me, despite being a killer. Drop dead, you racist clown.

    This is typical “justice” in Europe. Life is very cheap there.
    The courts rarely sentence anyone to more than a few years in a country club prison for ANY crime. Even the worst murderers serve in garden-apartment-like prisons with nominal security. It’s a sign of Europe’s further decline and incapacity to accept that the world truly has evil people in it –people who should be locked up forever.
