Just heard this on my news, cant find a thread for it yet though!

He was 19 years old and was stabbed to death, and it happened in Edmonton! Another boy is in hospital!

They really need to do something as i will not let my boys out when they become teenagers and why should they suffer because of these stupid bloody gangs

This may be way off and I am not trying to be controversial, but I wonder what these kids upbringing has been like to think it is okay to do this sort of thing.

We all need to take repsonsibility. It is too heart breaking. Too many kids are dying.

I agree NAB3.

There were some stats on the television at the weekend - you know the sort of thing - that statistically our streets are safer than they've ever been. I thought unless you're a teenage male. One of ds2's mates was the victim of a 'driveby assault' last week. Walking home - got jumped and beaten by two random youths in a car.

third one of 2008. makes me despair, kids should be searched going into schools for starters. i have a 14 year old son out and about now so am really worried about it.

london seems to be turning into LA. such disregard for life.

I get very worried because my nephew is 14 and travels to the other side of london on his own and he has been attacked twice since being aloud out by himself (luckily nothing too severe!)

I just dont know how this problem is going to be sorted!

They definately need to make the punishment a lot more punishing, (especially after the 13 year old girl being stabbed in school in south london last week)

Edmonton is just down the road from me. It just makes me even more keen to move away from London.

They think it is related to the stabing at the beginning of the year which was just a few roads along

I think we should be more passionate about tackling this sort of thing , before worring about Jamie Olivers Conquests. This scares me to death.

Parenting classes and workshops with the children. Teaching assertiveness and how to talk to one another.

The little lad in Eastenders get stabbed this week too .

bananaknickers · 22/01/2008 15:39

Eastenders not real life I know, before anyone says. Just it's on T.V for lots of teenagers to see.

3RD TEENAGER STABBED TO DEATH THIS YEAR and we are only 22 days in to it .

Until the law dishes out the sort of punishment that fits the crime it will keep on and on.
