Another person commented: “Can’t believe this is still happening with Covid 19 still amongst us – what is wrong with people!”
A member of the group even posted a question to all members that read: “Who is to blame for the uprising in knife crime in the UK, in London in Harrow ? How do we tackle this stupidness and bring it to an end?”
