Since the L6 are doing crime and punishment (and this will be a good read for the U6) as well, I came across an article that would be highly relevant to us and would be good to talk about in class.

Last moments of Ben Kinsella revealed as three are convicted of stabbing him to death for ‘disrespect’

Killers seen chasing Ben on CCTV moments before stabbing

Ben steps out from behind a van after being stabbed by three youths in the early hours of the morning in North London. At first glance he looks unharmed

As he steps out into the middle of the road it can be seen that Ben's shirt is covered in blood on his left side

Apparently the murderers showed no remorse in stabbing Ben. Why do you think people like these exist in a developed society? What are the reasons for commiting crime? Is it something innate? Or something learned from society? What do you think??
