“We want the city and region to unite and let people know we won’t put up with it any longer, Tim said. Mr. Edwards walks from Land’s End to John O’Groats with comedian and Actor John May from Liverpool.
Actor John May acknowledged many gun and knife crimes in Liverpool; most people involved in such crimes are economically inactive. John explained that many young people join gangs for loyalty or a sense of family.
“Accountability is what Weapons Down instills in them. At the end of it, they have also assured job placement. It teaches them success over time, consistency over time, and both,” continued the Actor.
The non-profit program, according to May, aims to aid in preventing young people from going on to join gangs and commit crimes.
