    Default Knife crime

    Two more young people stabbed to death in London. 5 people slashed in Manchester. It is almost a daily occurrence. How do you combat it? Nobody should be carrying a knife. More stop and search and harsher penalties for carrying? Longer sentences for convicted stabbers? Where do you start?

    Nutters / thugs will always find something to use as a weapon, and if you come down hard on a particular implement they will find something else. What needs to be addressed, if possible, are the reasons why peoiple feel the need to carry implements that might be used for violence.

    They will, but for a while it has all been about knives. It has long got to the stage now where kids feel it is the thing to do to prove themselves as tough guys. These aren’t ****ed up older men fighting at closing time. Kids are murdering other kids in broad daylight.

    zero tolerance. much more Stop/search, harsh penalties, stricter prison time

    Been discussed before. Cut all youth and other services, and the police and hey presto things get worse.

    Levelling their mums houses might be a deterrent

    Arndale attack is anything but a daily occurrence. If it was the US would be far more than 3 people taken to hospital.
