UK Gun Culture Blamed On Moss
A top police advisor has laid the blame for Britain's rising gun crime figures on supermodel Kate Moss and her troubled boyfriend Pete Doherty. LEE JASPER, chairman of the Operation Trident Advisory Group which combats urban shootings, insists the catwalk beauty and Babyshambles singer have inadvertently promoted violent crime by buying illegal drugs from street sources. Moss was shamed in British newspapers last year (05) when pictures of her snorting cocaine in a recording studio hit front pages. Doherty, meanwhile, has been convicted on drug possession charges and has also spent time in rehab fighting his addiction. Jasper says, "The middle classes and the Kate Mosses need to stop coming to places like Brixton (south London) to buy drugs." Earlier this month (NOV06), Colombian Vice President FRANCISCO SANTOS expressed his dismay that Moss' success following her drugs scandal had "glamourised" the narcotics trade that is tearing his country apart.
