Catching the bad

“BC”, the British police-described “angelic looking boy”, nabbed by his school for sending beheading videos to his classmates, is not a one-of-a-kind lad.

BC’s peers were receiving “sick videos” of Westerners being beheaded through their cell phones.

Proving out the old adage that a book cannot be judged by its cover, a police mugshot of the violence-loving teen depicts “a fair-haired child so short that his face was barely in the frame of the camera”.

Unfortunately, the beheadings sent to his schoolmates were horrifically real.

“Anti-terrorism chiefs have said the example revealed how violent extremism is spreading “like a virus infecting young minds.” (, June 25, 2008). “The blonde, white schoolboy from West Yorkshire is among 120 people being dealt with by police in a new anti-terrorism scheme targeting al-Qa’eda inspired youths”.
