Notes:
Demetri wants to study criminology at university to understand why people around him carry knives. Jhemar is determined to advocate for his community following the murder of a loved one. Carl's exclusion leaves him vulnerable to the sinister school-to-prison pipeline, but he is resolute to defy expectations. And Tony, the tireless manager of a community centre, is fighting not only for the lives of local young people, but to keep the centre's doors open. 'Knife crime' is a simplistic and prejudiced term, shorthand for how contemporary Britain is failing a generation fearful for their lives. How can a stripped-back police force build bridges in communities that have had enough of them? What is a school supposed to do if a child brings in a knife, and can overworked teachers stop it happening again? How did we get here, what is really going on and how do we move forward?
