    Twelve arrested over Rhys murder



    Long inquiry after schoolboy shot

    Twelve people have been arrested in connection with the murder of Liverpool schoolboy Rhys Jones.

    They were held by Merseyside Police in a series of dawn raids in the Croxteth area of the city.

    Two youths, aged 16 and 17, and two men, aged 24 and 25, were being held on suspicion of murdering the 11-year-old schoolboy in August 2007.

    Three youths, two men and three women were being held for alleged offences including assisting an offender.

    Rhys was shot in the neck as he walked home from football practice in Croxteth Park, Liverpool, on 22 August.

    Merseyside police raided a number of homes early on Tuesday.



    A 16-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender, attempting to pervert the course of justice and possession of a firearm and ammunition.

    A 49-year-old man and a 15-year-old boy have been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender and attempting to pervert the course of justice.

    A youth, 17, is also being held on suspicion of assisting an offender.

    The three women, aged 50, 54 and 21, and a 22-year-old man, have been arrested on suspicion of attempting to pervert the course of justice.

    Following the arrests, Bernard Hogan-Howe, Chief Constable of Merseyside Police, paid tribute to Rhys's parents Stephen, 45, and Melanie, 42, for their support and patience.

    well i take it one of the two younger members will be charged with the murder

    It's been known for a while who it is, just need someone to stand up and give evidence.
    Hopefully one of the ones arrested will panic and put the name in a statement.

    Ryan who's ryan in the title??

    At least spell his name right, it is Rhys not Ryan.

    I hope the parents of the arrested youths have been able to live with themselves since August.

    How would you now know what had gone on???

    No doubt our judicial system would give them life now if they are found guilty.....

    i agree with your sentiments - except top line - if the parents did know i wish that they havent had a nights sleep and they feel even more pain (if its possible) than rhys family
    if the parents did know all this time they helped shoot that gun and are just as guilty

    As much as I sympathise with these terrible happenings, I can't help wondering what this new trend is all about on HUKD.

    Why on earth are people posting links to news stories on a site that is pretty much focussed on looking for bargains?

    I come to HUKD for bargains. If I want a news update I'll go to BBC news.

    Perhaps I'm just a grumpy old man, but I consider this type of thing to be nothing less than spam.

    It doesn't say that the parents are involved, but everyone has a feeling that the parents know full well what happend.

    There was another case, of a 'Goth' girl being killed, she was just protecting her boyfriend. When the kids who did it were arrested, one of the parents laughed, they didn't get that what their child did was wrong.

    With all of the descriptions going round of the 'killer' of Rhys, somebody would have thought that a parent would have recognised the description of the person, the clothes they wore and the bike they rode, and would have spoken to the police, if only to eliminate their child from the investigations, another family lost thier little boy, a matter of weeks/days before he would have started high school. If any member of my family bore a resemblance to anybody the police were after, I would contact them, simply to 'hopefully' eliminate them from the enquireies.

    by your second sentance their you have answered what i was rambling on about the other day, if the parents see no wrong then how the hell are the children supposed to, not justifying anything just saying

    only one person pulled the trigger thats who matters right now

    Alfonse;1896909

    only one person pulled the trigger thats who matters right now



    what about the person who supplied the gun? And the people who have hidden the killer? I think they matter in all of this

    yes, just a scenerio, what happens if the boy that pulled the trigger was from a family who know no better, been brought up with guns, violence, drugs, etc, etc and they boy who purchased the gun and egged on the killer was from a respectable family, brough up in a nice home, family with all they could want, which one should get the lighter sentance, like i said only a scenerio, but all to often only the here and now is seen, and nothing else matters

    The person who is culpable for this murder being caught, that be bring closure for the parents then string the rest out, but the defining point is that no matter the weapon only one person is responsible for those actions alone.

    Explain how one cannot be responsible for killing someone by their own hand?
