Legion raid is sickening

I am so proud to live in Marple, I love it. But this just makes me weep. There are no words to describe just how sick some people have become.

The long and short of it is that the Legion was raided by violent scum a couple of days after Danny Winter's funeral, presumably knowing the takings would have been high. They battered Al Stonall, the manager, and hacked at him with hammers and a machete.

There are often crimes that provide a turning point in public consciousness. Think of Stephen Lawrence's murder, or the shooting of Jesse James. I hope this becomes one of them. If anyone at all knows anything about who may have been responsible they need to pass that on.
