Mr Stabby, la la la la .. goes the excellent song.
Operations such as blunt, involving knife amnesties and bins at police stations and other venues have had some success's , school educations, online video's , music , support groups , tv shows , even so far as an online game from the met police.
But still we have young men killing young men on the streets with knifes.
I have often wrote about the culture of the gun, and this is an equal and possibly even more devastating current weapon of choice for todays youth.
So, some say they carry a knife for self protection, and think thats ok.
Well it ain't , you are more likely to be killed by the weapon you carry.
In this day and age when pressures are placed on the judiciary and prisons, do we need a legislative change to deal with those who carry knifes ?
I know I have personally had many run in's with oiks and knifes , i have been slashed once on my forearm and stabbed in the leg , both times the courts only set a very lenient penalties to the defendant (Twat) , or is that the judicatories feelings towards those who police the streets ?
Many, many officers have died by the knife , how many more need to do so before we see a real change in government, law and protection for all in these times.
I'm all ears to hear the thoughts of others...
