A tragic and long list of teenagers killed in the U.K since January of 2008, most of whom come from London.
When I was growing up in the U.K, there was certainly a fear of knife crime and random acts of violence, but the spiraling teen murder rate is something completely new. It’s not a place I recognize any more, and I would hesitate to bring children up there. A crying shame, and another indictment of New Labour’s failure to build a more inclusive society.
