This clip could be used as a trigger for a discussion on the reasons why young people get involved in crime and to illustrate the Restorative Justice process. Reasons could include: resentment towards someone, peer pressure, alcohol or drug dependency, family problems or lack of care, greed, desire for excitement etc. Use to investigate the impact of alcohol and drug use on young people's behaviour.
