killing on our doorstep

As you will have gathered by now I go to conflict zones and those countries emerging from conflict as part of my job. I am off to Congo in January, where literally millions have died in the last 5 years in a conflict that turns children into soldiers. And rapists. And eventually casualties.

But this post is about the shooting that took place on Loftus Road a few days ago. Carried out on a 20 year old by suspects reported to be younger. By what warped route have we arrived at the situation in this country, where by comparison we want for nothing , and where our own children take each others lives?
