    I think you mixed up gangs with groups.

    Just because a group of boys are in tracksuits and they're ethnic minorities doesn't mean they're in a gang.


    Just a little correction for you.

    A definition of a gang - "a group of people, especially young people, who regularly associate together"

    I'm sure you'll understand why innocent passers-by will be cautious and treat them as if they are likely to be, and why the police, in protecting the interests of those people, will do the same.

    Is it just me or does this happen every other day in Newham?

    The boy was pronounced dead at the scene and was only 17 years old!
    The stabbing was also premeditated. Someone went out of their way to end someone else's life!

    So terrible and I really do not like what is on the news at this time of the year.
    That's really sad :'(

    Happens a lot though, all over the country. It's a horrible world we live in.
