A black teenager has been jailed for life after he stabbed a talented white schoolboy to death in June last year while under a supervision order. Fourteen-year-old Martin Dinnegan was stabbed in the back four times near his home in Holloway, North London, in an attack provoked allegedly by Martin giving the black youth a “dirty look.”
Joseph Chin, 16, who has a history of violent crime, was handed a life sentence with a minimum term of 12 years after he was found guilty of murder by an Old Bailey jury.
Another black teenager, Kevron Williams, 17, was convicted of attempting to cause grievous bodily harm during the attack in June 2007, and was given four years in youth detention.
Sentencing the pair, Judge Brian Barker, the Common Serjeant of London, described the incident as ‘arrogant group violence', adding ‘this was a vengeful attack out of all proportion to what may have gone on before.'
Chin had a criminal record dating back to 2004, including the possession of a snooker ball in a sock and threatening a man with a hollow bar.
In September 2006 he was given a 12-month supervision order after kicking a shopkeeper unconscious when challenged for stealing some food from outside the store, and was still under the order when Martin died the following June.
The trial heard that Martin had been on a bus when looks were exchanged with a rival group on bicycles.
Following another encounter when Chin received two cuts, Martin ran away and was chased along the street. He was initially caught up by Williams, who punched him to the ground and stabbed him in the buttocks with a screwdriver, but then got up and continued to flee.
Tom Morgan, a witness who lived in the area, said he saw Martin running past him pleading: ‘Please help me.'He saw a ‘white-faced' Martin raise his hands as if to placate a youth who approached him on a BMX bicycle.
But the cyclist, Chin, then knocked him to the ground and pinned him down.
‘Then I saw what seemed to be a stabbing motion rather than a punching motion four or five times in very rapid succession,' said Mr Morgan.
Martin, a pupil at St Aloysius College in Archway, lived on a local housing estate where there was rivalry with youths living on another estate.
The victim's mother, Lorraine Dinnegan, paid an emotional tribute to her son, saying: ‘Martin was a charming, loving boy who has left us with cherished memories that will remain with us forever.
‘The pain that Martin's death has caused for our family is indescribable. Life will never be the same, a piece of our heart has been taken.
‘We as a family will never make sense of the unnecessary suffering that was inflicted upon Martin. It was extremely sad to be burying Martin at the tender age of 14.'

Contrary to the impression which the controlled media tries to create, whites make up far and away the largest number of victims of racial crime in Britain. BME (Black Minority Ethnic) killers targeting white victims were responsible for a staggering 79% of traceable racist homicides in the UK between 1999 and 2006. This is an over-representation by a factor of more than thirty four.
Thus non-whites were, in the period 1999 - 2006, forty times more likely to be committing racial murders against white people on a per capita basis than the other way round. White victims are over-represented to the same degree.
