The Evening post reports on a football match that is part of an anti violence campaign called “no more knives”.
“A CITY football team with an anti-gang violence message will play young people from Bedfordshire in the first No More Knives trophy contest.”
Although it sounds as if there has been some good work with young people as part of this campaign, there is no doubt that money has also been wasted. A good example of this is a website http://www.nomoreknives.com/home.htm that features a video about the effects of knife crime. I can’t imagine this video changing people’s mind about carrying and using a knife.
