Quotes

In a ruling at the Court of Appeal in London, Lord Thomas said: "Given the prevalence of knife crime among young persons, the youth court must keep a very sharp focus, if necessary through the use of more severe sentences, on preventing further offending by anyone apprehended for carrying a knife in a public place and to securing a reduction in the carrying of knives."
...But in the end they both end up with stab wounds -- somehow or another, a knife ends up in play," said Macholl, who added: "What our guys got out of it was that Rowlands was the aggressor."
"I call it moral panic,” said Janne Holmgren, director for the Centre for Criminology and Justice Research at Mount Royal University. “Sometimes fear drives a lot of legislation, unfortunately.”"
"It’s tremendous that these talented youngsters have come here voluntarily, off their own backs. The more we can work with young people to get these messages across, the more we will see knife crime reduce."
