Last quote by Gary Younge

In coming weeks we will be refocusing our attention on the children and teenagers killed by knives in the UK. With the best will in the world, when we launched Beyond the blade this spring, we could not have predicted a year like this. Since mid-April there have been an election, three terrorist attacks and the horrific tragedy at Grenfell Tower.feedback

Gary Younge has most recently been quoted in an article called What the life of Quamari Serunkuma-Barnes tells us about child knife deaths in Britain. Gary Younge said, “The 15-year-old from London was one of 21 children and teens killed by a knife this year. How did a Bob Marley-obsessed boy who loved to dance come to be stabbed outside his school? And can justice ever be done when the person who faced trial for murder last month was a child himself?”. Gary Younge has been quoted a grand total of 15 times in 14 articles.

Apr 15 2017 - California school shooting 2017

The reasons for knife crime are complex, but it’s wrong to ignore the impact of cuts to youth funding. On Monday Cedric Anderson, the estranged husband of a special education teacher, Karen Smith, walked into her primary school classroom in San Bernardino, California, and shot dead both her and eight-year-old Jonathan Martinez; injured two other children; and then fatally shot himself. Martinez was the 67th child under the age of 11 to be shot dead in America this year. (Four more have been killed since then.) Smith, who had married Anderson just a few months earlier, was just one of the estimated 50 women in the US to be shot dead by a current or former partner each month. Of the 91 mass shootings so far this year, almost one a day, all of those where the identity of the shooter is known were committed by men.feedback

In the first of our fortnightly updates, Gary Younge shares some of your feedback to our project about young people and knife crime in the UK. Within three days of the launch of Beyond the blade, the Guardian’s year-long series looking at the young victims of knife crime, another young person had been stabbed to death. Pierce Wilkinson, 13, was killed with his mother, Tracey, in Stourbridge in the West Midlands.feedback

As a nation we are conscious that there is something out there known as 'knife crime' but as yet we lack any coherent or enduring national response.feedback
