Media Self Censorship, George NKencho & "The Law of Pamela Izevbekhai"



The article does reference the incident in the shop and the knife.

Just after midday, Nkencho entered Eurospar in Hartstown, where he became involved in a confrontation with the store’s manager. He punched the manager in the face, causing serious facial injuries, before drawing a kitchen knife from his pocket.


What was the confrontation about ?
What was said ?
Did the family know George habitually carried a kitchen knife when he went to the shops ? If so how long has he been doing that ?
Did the knife come from the drawer as he left or did he have his own, or his own collection, of “kitchen knives”?
What injuries did the shop manager sustain ? Bruising or broken ? Stitches ?
Did George ever threaten anyone previously with a knife ?
Was this his first run-in at the shop ?

Questions that are, bizarrely, less important to The Irish Times than his teenage football career.
