Update on Turkish killer Ali Koc: Judge concludes the attacks were racially motivated

We previously covered this story here. There was no mention of racial motivation from the media when it happened.

A double killer was jailed for a minimum of 35 years today for a month-long orgy of random violence just weeks after having his benefits stopped.

Ali Koc, 30, wore skull and crossbone gloves to beat his victims with lumps of wood in a series of motiveless attacks in parks across North London.

He stalked woodland near his home in Hornsey to batter two pensioners to death and head butt, kick and punch five other strangers in January last year.

In December 2010 his benefits had been stopped and between attacks he would abuse, often racially, DWP staff.

Sentencing, Mr Justice Calvert-Smith told him: “You clearly went out looking for victims who were carefully chosen targets. You caused widespread fear and anxiety in the local community.

“One of the attacks was racially aggravated. This was a brutal campaign of violence carried out for the sake of showing you could intimidate and hurt other human  beings.”
