I did find this newspaper article. This is something I feel very strongly about. I see too may of these things and though I can appreciate the sentiment, i do not appreciate the reasons for why they are there. Its like they catching like some kind of flu.  No. I don’t like it. I don’ want to see it. This article wouldna be so sad if I didna agree wis the lady who wrote it. – Algernon

“One side effect of the recent spate of teenage knife crime has been the proliferation of roadside shrines to those killed.
Recently I passed the spot where Ben Kinsella died,
where there is an arresting display of flowers, banners and soft toys.
Such tributes are now a depressingly familiar sight.”
