On June 2nd, 2010, 52-year-old Derrick Bird, an ordinary and down to earth self-employed taxi driver from Rowrah in Cumbria, in the North of England, had started a shooting spree earlier that day. He went on to kill 12 people, and injure 11 others in the space of two hours, before killing himself. This tragedy could not have been prevented, but Bird was not the quiet and pleasant man that many neighbours and friends thought he was. Bird had a history of suffering at the hands of others and never getting the justice he truly deserved.
