Manchester's original gangsters

Manchester's original gangsters | Violent Crime | Scoop.it

A fascinating article about youth crime and gangs in the 19th century. It talks of the use of lengthy sentences in order to deter other young people from taking part in gang activity and the gradual up-tariffing of crimes associated with young people. The article also makes comments about the comments of letter writers to the Manchester Guardian, which gloriously echo the trolls you can find on the Guardian online comments pages.

This also mentions the role of the police court missionaries, which is always good to help teaching about the history of the probation service.
