In the summer of 2011, riots took place in some of our cities. London, Manchester and Salford witnessed riots and major disorder. Robbery, violent disorder and the destruction of property, took place on a large scale. Law and Order broke down, with many young people out of control.
 
1. Why do you think some young people get involved in ‘group’ crime, such as riots?
 
PEER PRESSURE - WANT OTHER PEOPLES PROPERTY - DO WHAT THEY WANT, WHEN THEY FEEL LIKE IT - BAD PARENTING - DO NOT RECOGNISE THE LAW - DISENCHANTED WITH THEIR LIVES - FEEL THEY DO NOT HAVE A FUTURE - DO NOT CARE FOR THE LOCAL COMMUNITY - BROKEN SOCIETY
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
2. When a ‘mob’ / gang, rob and destroy a local shop, what are the consequences to the shop owner?
 
LIFE DESTROYED - HOME DESTROYED - LOCAL COMMUNITY LOSES CONVENIENT SHOP - VANDALISED COMMUNITY - PEOPLE LIVE IN FEAR - ANGER - ECONOMIC DISASTER TO OWNER
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
3. How do you feel the ‘Law’ should deal with people who riot, destroying property and stealing from local shops?
