The Event: Marcos, a middle class teenager, murders his father and leaves one of his four brothers badly wounded.
The initial reaction: No-one among Marcos’ friends, relatives and teachers can explain what has happened. Images of the crime fill the news bulletins.
The Investigation: Marcos’s crime is not an isolated event. Too many cases in recent years have seen minors involved in extremely violent situations. Bullying. Cyberbullying. Racist attacks. Drug deals. Videos on YouTube of teachers being humiliated. Depressed teachers. Is it the teenagers’ fault? Is it that of their teachers? Their parents? Can anyone really be blamed or are we all victims?
