Twin brothers Ronald “Ronnie” Kray and Reginald “Reggie” Kray were English gangsters who were the foremost perpetrators of organised crime in the East End of London during the 1950s and 1960s. Ronald, commonly called Ron or Ronnie, most likely suffered from paranoid schizophrenia.
The twins were always inseparable growing up. Reggie was possessive of his twin and would not share his brother with anyone else.They would often fight each other, but would never allow a third party to come between them. Like many identical twins, they seemed “different” to the other tough little kids in the neighborhood. Growing up during the Second World War period, the twins were basically reared by a household of women.
Their father was on the run from the law, having refused to join up for military service. So Ronnie and Reggie’s formative years were strongly influenced by their beloved mother Violet, her two sisters, and their grandmother. Violet’s love gave the twins a sense of almost superhuman invincibility. She accepted everything they did, destroying their ability to judge right from wrong.
They were arrested on 9 May 1968 and convicted in 1969 by the efforts of a squad of detectives led by Detective Superintendent Leonard “Nipper” Read, and were both sentenced to life imprisonment. Ronnie remained in Broadmoor Hospital until his death on 17 March 1995. Reggie was released from prison on compassionate grounds in August 2000, eight weeks before his death from cancer.
In his will, Reggie had asked to be buried in the same grave as Ronnie because he said that way he would be back where he belonged - with his brother.Kate Kray, who had married Ronnie in prison in 1989, remembered Reggie attending her husband’s funeral. “Reggie died the day Ron died,” she said.
"The saddest thing I ever saw in my whole life was the moment Reg said goodbye to Ron. He was weeping uncontrollably. He was destroyed."
Protest in solidarity with the 43 missing students of Ayotzinapa and the 6 inocents who died during the kidnaping
on september 26 the local police of Iguala opened fire to 3 buses killing 3 student, 2 members of a soccer team and 1 civilian and ended with the kidnaping of 43 students from the normal rural school of Ayotzinapa this happened near to a military base who did nothing to stop these actions.
This is not the first time that the mexican government do something like this for many years students and social activist have been disappearing or dying in mysterious circumstances and most of the time are covered up with the mainstream media who only works to praise the government actions and establish separations in society (sounds like facism to me).
This is a country that is tired of being ruled by the same organizations just with different faces, some call it the perfect dictatorship where it doesn’t matter how many elections are held the power always remain with the same group of people, we have been governed for the same corrupt organization for 85 years but even after these almost 100 years of corruption we see a bright future but we have to fight for it even if it cost us our lives, because if we don’t burn then who will light us in this darkness.
