LETTERS: Death of a headmaster: where responsibility lies

From Mr Tony Fegan

Sir: We have had a recent tragedy of a headmaster being stabbed to death by thugs, and no arrests to date of the assailants involved.

I am a 71-year-old pensioner, an ex-able seaman and a dock worker. I remember when a seaman going ashore for a lunchtime drink was not allowed to have his knife and spike on him if going outside the dock area of most ports.

Now society is going back to the jungle and it is warfare, even with children.

Yours faithfully,

Tony Fegan
