Post subject: knife crime Reply with quote

Tomorrow, I will attend the funeral of one of my best and oldest friends.He was a victim of knife crime,stabbed once in the stomach and once in the heart.The Specials wrote songs about this 30 years ago,and here we are now in the second decade of the millenium, and we are further away from solving this problem than ever.Tougher sentances MUST be handed out immediately.

Sorry to hear that mate- Nothing ever change as a certain band say. My brother was murdered and I totally agree- these scum should be locked up for ever.Either that or bring back capital punishment. I will never see why they should live on after they take away. Hope you feel better soon. Time is a healer and it will help but life will be different thats for sure.

A 15 year was stabbed to death in Camberwell yesterday.

The murderer walked away from the body, arms aloft, shouting 'I did him'.

We live 1/2 mile up the road. My boy is 14.

It feels threatening.

Then I have to rationalise.

There have been five teenage murders, through stabbing, in London this year.

5 dead out of tens of thousands of teenagers

I have to make up my mind that my boy will be one of the tens of thousands and not one of the five. That his steps will not lead him down paths where he ends up dead from a violent assault.

I can't guarantee that.

I just hope that.

Sorry for your loss mell. Be well, and stay gold.

Mell

My thoughts are with you at this tragic time.

Ive been in the ambulance service for 24 years and have seen these types of incidents all too often.

We must try to stop it and now!

Most of us know what it's like to lose somebody we love, though fortunately not usually from such tragic circumstances. I hope you got through the day ok matey.

Sorry to hear about that Mel.

An artist i know called Ben 'Eine' was recently commissioned to do this piece along Old Street.



'The Flavasum Trust was initiated after the death of Tom-Louis Easton, a young music teacher who was fatally stabbed whilst recording music for his friends at the Islington council run EC1 Music Project Studio, London. Flavasum work with and fund projects that use music, theatre, dance, poetry, film, photography and visual art to help young people change their own lives and dissuade them from carrying weapons.'


The Highrise Campaign - no more guns, no more knives

Just found out that a 17 year old lad was killed during the early hours of this morning in a quiet rural town not far from where I live - 4 arrested.

Things are getting very serious and I can't see it getting better

In November two of those who were always suspected of stabbing Stephen Lawrence (Dobson and Norris) will be in court. I hope justice is done.

Do they know which direction knife crime is going in, and is this awareness creating solutions or hysteria and media sales?
