British men have been in the news a lot lately, but not for their admirable qualities. In fact, these men are rather jealous and insensitive and, oh, have a habit of murdering their partners. More after the jump.EXHIBIT #1: Colin Scully, a jealous husband, admitted to police that he strangled his wife Tracey to death after she called out “Paul” while they were having sex. He also said it “blew his mind” when his wife discussed any other men. Tracey’s mother, Wendy Wild, told Leeds Crown Court that her daughter said Scully often forced her to swing with other men while he filmed the encounter.
EXHIBIT #2: Wayne Forrester hacked his wife to death with a meat cleaver after she changed her marital status on Facebook to “single.” Similarly (EXHIBIT #2a:), Edward Richardson fatally stabbed his estranged wife in 2008 after she changed her relationship status to “single” on Facebook.
EXHIBIT #3: Then there’s Neil Brady, who updated his Facebook status with this message: “…ended his marriage to Emma Brady.” The problem is he insensitively hadn’t updated his wife on the status of their marriage.
To be fair, British men do, on occasion, defend their partners, but the result can be fatal. Kevin Tripp died after being punched in the head. You see, Antonette Richardson had been accused of jumping a supermarket checkout line, so called her boyfriend Tony Virasami to the scene for help. When he arrived, Richardson pointed to the man she had the argued with. Virasami mistakenly thought she was indicating Tripp and he stormed over and punched him in the head. The force from the hit knocked him to the floor, where he banged his head, causing a fatal brain injury.
Of course, you can’t really judge a whole group of people based on the actions of a few, but the only thing going for British men right now is their accent.
