- Hanging out with a murderer
I have a snack bar in a place called Craigneuk in Wishaw which I started up over 20 years ago. In that time two of my customers have been blasted with a shorgun and their bodies burned before being dumped in East Lothian,another three customers throw a guy out a flat window then proceeded to smash his head in with paving blocks until he died so their doing 20 years each another three lured a guy out from a pub in Newmains where they killed him with a shotgun their doing 19 years and only last year two of my customers who are cousins started fighting in the street which resulted in one stabbing the other one to death. All of these boys I have known since they where at primary school and where regular customers who never once gave me any bother. That said most of them where career criminals.Posted 1 year agowoody2000Subscriber
One of my mates at secondary school turned out to be “not very nice’
Don’t know what happened in his life that turned him into someone who smashes his girlfriend’s head in with a lump hammer 🙁Posted 1 year agogallowayboySubscriber

Until I was 10 I lived in Coupar Angus, went to primary school, and my mum taught in the attached junior secondary. One of her pupils was a handful and took to intimidating and physically bullying me, (being a teachers son in the 70s was hard work) he was five years older and terrified me. Four years later he beat to death one of the old blokes who sat on the bench in the middle of town, with the blokes walking stick.Posted 1 year agoSiBMember
About 10 years ago my mum was trying to get me to take her friends son for a round of golf i was going on……..I play about 4 times a year with friends who do the same, we go for a laugh, good mates for 25 years……so i said no as didnt want a ‘stranger’ to spoil it (he was not aware of my mums suggestion, she just said it would be ‘nice’ for him to get out). That same afternoon he murdered his lodger, from what I can remember it was about 60 stab wounds, more than half to the head. Was mentally unstable and sectioned (or whatever the correct term is)
Oh how we laugh about my mums judge of character comments these days.
Would lodger still be alive if I had taken murderer to golf? Would I be alive?Posted 1 year agozippykonaSubscriber
My step dad was “the man from the Pru”.
He used to get lots of calls at home and if he wasn’t in I’d take a message.
One man phoned up to dicuss his wife’s life insurance. He had strangled her in his sleep as he thought she was a Japanese guard and he was a P.O.W.
Amazingly his defence was accepted.
The Pru paid out.Posted 1 year agoshermer75Member
I went to school with Richard ElseyPosted 1 year agotpbikerMember
The ‘hardest man in my school’ was a real bad egg. He was built like a tank and had a huge scar across his neck from being slashed, aged about 14. He was always kicking shit out of lads from the rival town gang, but one day he got his couppance when a chap named beefy who was a couple of years older and equally huge, rocked up at lunchtime and gave him the most savage beating I have ever witnessed.
2 years later him and his chums were convicted of murdering a lad after a fight outside a pub. Only served 8 years, which seemed a bit lenient after stamping on someone’s head so hard the evidence used to convict them was the footprints on the victims face.Posted 1 year ago
