  1. Afternoon James, an interesting article, thanks for posting it.I found the Mizen / Knox cases particularly sad; I grew up a few hundred yards from where Rob Knox was killed and went to school in Lee (Colfe’s – I was in your year but left after the lower 4th). The locations that these tragic events took place in are very familiar but the circumstances seem completely alien to me.Barry Mizen’s comments sum things up perfectly; how do two people that grow up yards from each other turn out so differently?It is troubling to see such anger in the nation’s youth, albeit that it is a small minority that generate the biggest headlines. Meanwhile, the ‘older’ generation is growing younger in so many ways – the way we dress, the way we use technology and the cultural reference points we have, yet we appear ever more isolated from the younger generation that (in theory) we seem to share far more in common with previous generations did with their children.
