The Fear Factory

This article by Helen McNutt acts as an excellent foil to the vitriolic lynch (media) mob that re-grouped to to preach hatred, judgment and demonisation, given that the Bulger case is back in the spotlight.

I’m grateful to Chris for the pointer to this article which also put me in contact with a film called The Fear Factory, a film which aims to raise the debate about crime and young people out of the realms of rabble-rousing ill informed soundbites.
“The self-fulfilling prophesy that’s doubled our prison population,
demonised our young and costs us billions…
Welcome to the Fear Factory”

The coalition behind the film have a blog here.
More info when I have found an opportunity to watch the film

  1. there was an interesting video shown at springy last year by oasis, that showed young peole in hoodies, spelt wrong, sorry, but they walked along a road, and so many looked at them, judged them, condemned them, but all they were doing was leaving flowers on a grave, wow, how quick to judge. would love to get a copy of that video, not sure hwo or where.
