How desperately sad to see children on page 3 [Oxford Mail, June 4] being exploited in the judgemental cycle of hatred that now pervades our society.

Isn't it time we took a long hard look at ourselves? We don't have to look far.

Page 2, 16-18 killers with no feelings or mercy attempting to stab innocent bystanders on the streets of Oxford.

Page 9 vicious thugs carrying out attacks with broken glass in pubs.

Isn't it time we realised, whilst judging Trump, that we have become something far worse.

How about the huge moat that is in our own eyes?

We have become a nation that is failing to care about anything or anyone and violent with it.

Wake up Britain or Europe won't want us anyway or even the USA.
