To take a 17 year old's life because he's in a rival gang. Something I can't get my head around. And yes; I would guess that he was no little cherub. But that doesn't excuse his killing.
The problem is that every young gang member won’t listen to the advice, as they’re worried their rivals will still have knives.That’s why they say don’t carry knives. A scrap turns in a 15 year prison sentence and the unnecessary death of a young man
My mate is a barrister and was defending an alleged stabber, a fight turned into someone getting a knife out. As it happens no one died or was seriously injured but that was luck rather than judgement - it’s all such a waste and the only way out is education and opportunity not stop and search. Give people hope, is it that much to ask?
At least 2 lives ruined, for what?
