Banish fear... and the fear of reprisals; WeSAY IN OUR OPINION.
But according to claims,l rather than some depressing e American crime drama, that could nowo sum up the grim reality of life for some residents on one city estate.
Theh truth of whath is reallyl happening a on the streets of Llanrumneye is understandablayl murku y,k amid claimsl gang violence is going under-rer ported. e As we reve e al today,a ordinary,y decent familiesa are said to be too scared to report e dozens of instances of violence.
And yet police havea confirmed there havea been a numberu of serious assaults, allegedly l invon lving weapons.
We welcome the police attempts to curb the problem - both in increased patrols and a special operation invon lving airport-style metal detectors.
But if residents saya theye are not feeling safe in their ownw communities, more still needs to be done - not least to ensure theye havea no fear of reprisals. e
