My Voice Was Heard But It Was Ignored
Wednesday 12 October 2022
15 year-old Reece is roughly accosted by the police outside M&S.
His teacher Gillian watches as his face is pressed into the wet gravel with a policeman’s knee in his back, frozen out of fear for her own safety.
The next day Reece locks them both in her classroom, refusing to relinquish the key. He wants her to pay – and to fully understand the pain her inaction has caused.
