    I grew up in the late 70s and early 80s, and this was when sus was commonplace. Being a young man of colour I was given a hard time by both the police and the NF wannabes if I strayed past either Plumstead or New CROSS borders. It was hard and hurtful but it was also the price of growing up – you took the odd beating or abuse from both sides but like your parents before you you kept your head down and went on about your business. You developed a healthy respect for both sides of the law but you also knew when to mouth off and when to keep quiet. You learned to spot real danger very quickly: when to stand your ground and when to say “sorry sir wasn’t looking at you’.

    I feel sorry for the lads growing up today. They’re not shown how the world works outside of YouTube. There’s no sense of danger for them and therefore no sense of fear. They kill to make a point and only when they’re isolated in the holding cell does it all catch up with them. That Section 60 should be permanent across London.

      You clearly know your place. And the Sus/P60 laws address(ed) an escalation in right wing hate crimes how exactly?

    Totally agree Charles the section 60’s should be made permanent cross Greater London. I think you have made some very good points. We all want our youngsters and streets safe for all. Thank you Charles.
