Points on gang x4
Not scared of police due to their little power shown by riot.Do not respect anyone, forceful to general public and other gang members, do unnecessary crimes-for fun, to assert authority, nothing else to do.
1 of 12
When arrested what did some gang members say about why the carried weapons?
That they carry weapons out if fear of other people - ignorant, but ultimately scared. Self defence.

Points of the ring leader - noel. X3
Presents himself as 'the big guy'. It ultimately powerless-his uncle is in control. His family are also swept up in crime, making it very likely that he too would be.
3 of 12
Points on the police x5
Powerless. Woman seems to care, wants her job, but cant because she does not have control. Leaders-dont care, easy way out. Arent respected or trusted. Little they can do.
4 of 12
Points in parents x2
Make little appearance, show little care. Noels mother seems to care a lot but also seems to not be in a parenting state (alcoholic?)
5 of 12
Points on revenge x3
Less revenge more justice. No one else (police) does anything about crime so harry takes it into his own hands. He definitely gets a thrill out of it though.like he's going back to his army days, youth. Feels power.

Points of the environment x3
Gangs have little to do and bad role models does not justify what they do, only makes it slightly more understandable. Gangs clearly force each other to do thing. Needs self defence.
7 of 12
Where do your sympathies lie?
With the general public, dont think what harry did was right but understand it. Police should be able to do more. Dont think people should have to put up with something they are so powerless to.
8 of 12
What does the beginning show about crime?
Introduces hard crime from start. Also introduces idea that crime doesnt always win.

Why is harry brown a surprising character?
He is not anyone special, just a normal elderly citizen who is currently dealing with a lot.
