  • London is no good for our Amy. But we can’t quite see her in wellies either.
  • Teenagers are afraid – a poll shows 55% of them are worried about knife crime over the summer months. Fear is good – it saves lives. Keep your fingers crossed.

    No no, fear is bad


    Isn't "fear of crime" the reason most kids carry knives in the first place?


    Of course I think that real fear is a terrible thing - but the kids that are really afraid are the ones that have fundamental respect for each other and for human life. Which means that they wouldn't dream of carrying a knife themselves.
    I suspect kids that do carry knives are mostly afraid of looking inadequate in front of their mates, but do not harbour real fear of attack or have not thought the whole thing through properly.
    But these are only my feelings about the matter: I stand to be corrected.
