Jailed rioters named and shamed
More than 60 people jailed in connection with offences relating to the summer riots have been named and shamed on a police website.
Scotland Yard has published the details of 66 people convicted of offences including violent disorder, burglary and handling stolen goods who have been jailed for a total of 95 years.
Included within the collection is the longest jail sentence handed down to date in relation to offences that took place in London.
Ryan Kichenside, 18, of St Mary's Road, South Norwood, south London, became notorious when a film of him pulling a man from his scooter was posted on YouTube, a Scotland Yard spokesman said. He has been sentenced to five years and 10 months for violent disorder, robbery and two counts of burglary.
The court heard how on August 8 Kichenside was seen taking part in the disorder in London Road, West Croydon. He played a prominent role and was seen throwing rocks and other objects at the police cordon. Later, a member of the public recorded video footage that showed a man riding a scooter through a large crowd of youths.
Kichenside chased after the scooter rider and grabbed him in a headlock, dragging him off the vehicle and fracturing the victim's ankle. He was also the instigator in two attacks on shops which were both the subject of mass looting.
Images of the 66 are being published on the force's Flickr page in support of ongoing efforts by officers in its Operation Withern to identify, arrest and prosecute those involved in the events seen across London in August.
Detective Superintendent Robin Bhairam said: "My thanks go out to all of those members of the public who have come forward and named those involved in these sickening acts of violence. I very much hope that this invaluable support continues so that we can carry on bringing to justice those individuals who took it upon themselves to terrorise and intimidate the people of London.
"This investigation will continue - it is a marathon not a sprint. The sentences that have been handed down by the courts reflect the seriousness of the crimes that have been committed."
The update follows the release of more than 200 images of outstanding suspects last week, and arrest of 77 individuals following a series of co-ordinated raids across the capital on Wednesday. Four months on from the disorder, the Met has made 3,423 arrests for a variety of offences and 2,179 people have been charged or summonsed.
