A worrying story on the Marlowe Academy from icKent today:
"A world of internet bullying, youth gang crime and teen drug deals have been exposed by Marlowe Academy pupil Habib Abdalla.
The 15-year-old ex- Margate gang member has shared his inside view of a frightening world of teen violence in a bid to stop more kids being sucked into a world of crime.
Writing in Oi magazine, created by pupils at the Ramsgate school, Habib said: "Teens from any place, anywhere, rich or poor, are becoming involved in gangs and the violence and horror they bring with them."
'The reason is their reputation is built on respect, the result is building this respect through acts which create fear.'
Ed: In a professional capacity, I'm not confortable with bebo, the social networking site for teens and younger and made my feelings clear to them recently.
