We need to get the young people that Propwash refers to out into the environment that Kanga refers to, to show them that there are other options. Easy to say .... incredibly difficult to do.
We need to do much, much more, especially in challenging those in positions of influence and responsibility who, for their own agendas, offer tacit support to those involved in gangs and violence through their constant obstruction, criticism and hostility to those who are striving to tackle it, often at some personal risk. The list is long and growing, including some elected officials who should be ashamed of themselves. One of my preferred solutions would be to demand that they are forced to deliver the heart-breaking news of yet another young death to the devastated mother so that they might have to confront the reality of the situation they are in part responsible for fostering.
