Three men on how they fell into criminality and how they got out

Description:

"The national lockdown in March saw a rise in the number of vulnerable children being groomed to carry drugs across the UK for dealers - so called county lines gangs.
Now with restrictions tightening in places across the UK again the Children's Society is concerned that even more children will be exploited.

Three young men, who were lured in as kids, have been speaking to the BBC's Amanda Kirton about how they became caught up in the culture of the roads, as they call it."


Two men stand accused of belonging to the jihadist cell that orchestrated the attacks in the Barcelona area in August 2017, while the third defendant is accused of collaborating.
Jitarth Jadeja found QAnon in 2017. The 32-year-old spent two years entrenched in the virtual cult. His biggest regret? Sharing the conspiracy theory with his father. CNN's Donie O'Sullivan reports.
One day in June 2019, Jadeja went outside to smoke a cigarette. For two years he'd been in the virtual cult of QAnon. But now he'd watched a YouTube video that picked apart the last element of the theory he believed in. Standing there smoking, he would say later, he felt "shattered." He had gone down the QAnon rabbit hole; now, having emerged from it, he had no idea what to do next.
The most basic QAnon belief casts President Trump as the hero in a fight against the "deep state" and a sinister cabal of Democratic politicians and celebrities who abuse children. And it features an anonymous government insider called "Q" who purportedly shares secret information about that fight via cryptic online posts.
Travis View is a conspiracy theory researcher who co-hosts the podcast "QAnon Anonymous."
The theory's believers "always fantasize that they are saving children and they're bringing criminals to justice," View says. "But QAnon only hurts people. It has helped nobody."
