The Cycle Of Street Violence And Its Invisible Victims

I’ve been thinking about why I’m saddened that a man who broke the law may have to face the consequences of his actions.

I recently read on Twitter that J Hus will be going back to prison because a knife was found in the car that he was travelling in. My immediate reaction was shock, followed by a familiar sadness. I am sad because as a youth practitioner, as a sister, as a black woman, and as someone that has been personally affected by street violence I have grown to understand the varying factors which may have contributed to J Hus risking his freedom in this way.
