Happy New Year Folks. WTF has our country come too. . Should have a 10 year imprisonment for just caught carrying a knife. Maybe Hitler had the right idea but just targeted the wrong people...S*um is usually scraped off the top and discarded...I suppose problem is who defines who the s*um are...

The carrying of knives seems to be accepted as normal, if caught the usual response is I carry one for protection, these stabbings and deaths will only get worse until zero tolerance is introduced, first steps should be mandatory custodial terms handed to those caught carrying.

There is a street culture among gangs in certain London communities where you have to be 'blooded' (other more modern expressions apply) before gaining 'street cred'. This involves at least wounding or killing someone else. This credibility is eagerly sort. The weapons of choice 'Zombie knives' are now illegal but like everything else 'illegal' freely available in certain quarters. Google 'Zombie knives/images' and you will see what sort of weapon you are likely to be attacked with in London. Apart from machete sized knives with serrated blades and multi pointed tips, there is also a weapon out there part axe/lump hammer/machete called appropriately enough a 'Headsplitter'. If you are unlucky enough to encounter a gang armed with these sort of weapons your chances of walking away unharmed are pretty poor.

The certain communities you mention are the first to cry foul if stopped by the police (stop and search) these tactics had to be abandoned (stopped) because of claims of discrimination, the sad part is lives may well have been saved if these searches were more robust and regular, I feel so sorry for the innocents in those communities whose children at risk because of the politically correct brigade, the police are damned if they do and damned if they don't

Its a viscious circle.. you may find normal law abiding citizens wanting the right to bear arms because of this knife crime.

Just a quick History lesson, apart from technological advances and building the country's infrastructure, Hitler had no right ideas. wink

Germany was facing destruction anyway with the impositions laid down after WW1, they had a choice between fight or die. If it wasn't Hitler it would inevitably have been someone else. Hitler saved Germany by forcing the allies to think about how to stabilise the Germany after WW2 and not repeat the same mistakes of those after WW1.
