On Tuesday a man only a few years older than me lost his life, in the very town in which I live. He was stabbed in the town centre for coming to the aid of a young woman who was being harassed by a man after her phone number. There are many things wrong with this, the first being that someone felt it necessary to carry a weapon on their person. Second, they felt such a huge sense of entitlement to the young woman’s attention that they killed another human being in a bid to preserve that entitlement.
Words fail me.
