  2. Knife Crime/Gang culture Research shows that if you carry a weapon, you are more likely to: • Be attacked or threatened by others who use weapons • Be arrested by the police • kill or injure yourself badly with your weapon • Hurt innocent people • Be charged with murder through joint enterprise if you're at a place where someone is killed, even if you weren't carrying the weapon.

  4. Mob/Herd Mentality... Mob mentality describes a behavior in which people act the same way or adopt similar behaviors as the people around them — often ignoring their own feelings in the process. Think of a sheep blindly following the flock no matter where they go just because that’s what the herd is doing. A lot of research has been conducted into the mindset of a mob/group: Being part of a group can destroy people's inhibitions, making them do things they'd never otherwise do. They lose their individual values and principles and adopt the group's principles, which, during a emotionally charged situation, are usually to cause disruption and result in bad behaviour.

  5. How can this be turned into a positive though? What can you as a group do to work together to get a positive response? How can you influence a group positively? What happens when a group works together towards a common goal?
