BREAKING NEWS: VIRAL VIGILANTE STOPS LONDON KNIFE CRIME EPIDEMIC
By Lucius Green
Cadell Walker, more commonly known in the public eye as "Psycho the vigilante", has single-handedly decreased London's knife crime rate by a staggering 95%.
The 19-year-old became a viral sensation after a video of him fighting numerous heinous crimes was uploaded on various social media sites. Since then, the vigilante has cultivated a total of 10 million followers on Twitter alone with the number of supporters steadily increasing by the day. Astonishing footage of the vigilante's escapades is released once every month.
From analysing reports alone, it is estimated a total of 100,000 London inhabitants have been positively affected by the vigilante.
The vigilante is suspected to be responsible for the murders of his parents, Miles and Kalice Walker. The police strongly urge anyone who has any helpful information concerning his whereabouts to come forward.
Cadell and Sara sat together on one of the highest points of a canyon. They oversaw a beautiful landscape. The night sky, sprinkled with stars, smoothly converged with the stone of the canyon's edge. A meandering river rushed below.
"Wow," Sara said, leaning on Cadell's shoulder. "This place is beautiful. Where is it?"
"I'm not sure," Cadell replied.
"What do you mean?"
"I just found this on google images."
"Typical," Sara said, sighing. "You can be so—"
"I was going to say lazy, but that works too."
Cadell laughed as he dug a spoon in a plastic container of steaming jollof rice. "Me? Lazy? I'm the hardest worker you know!"
