Every week somebody in my job of a few hundred people has something stolen. A lad had his jacket stolen today. A cheap jacket.
With rent prices spiraling, zero hour contracts and the need now to be in a relationship to be able to afford anything more than poverty, with spiraling cocaine use and drugs being so front and centre that it’s not uncommon to see two lads sniffing cocaine at a urinal in a local pub during the week do you ever wonder what’s the breaking point?
I’m fairly comfortable myself but I see kids hanging around the area and their only hope of making a life is a dead end job for the rest of their life drifting from minimum wage job to minimum wage job while doing a bit of drug dealing or petty crime on the side.
When will it just go full crazy to the level when you will be lucky to get your shopping home from the supermarket?
