Two gun-toting students kill twelve of their classmates and a teacher before turning the weapons on themselves: the 1999 massacre at Columbine High School shocked America into realizing that something had gone very wrong in their society. But cases such as this are occurring with increasing regularity in the USA. In the UK, too, children as young as 10 are using weapons to rob their classmates and terrorize innocent citizens. And guns are not always involved. In Japan in 1998, a 13-year-old schoolboy murdered his teacher in a frenzied knife attack - one of many similar crimes that has shocked that country. Why are young people running amok, fuelled by hatred and nihilism, with little regard for their own lives and the lives of those around them? Antonio Mendoza investigates this growing problem and comes up with some shocking findings that call for a global rethink on how we bring up - and punish - those responsible for the worldwide teenage crimewave.
