So, this week has seen an escalation in knife crime in the country. It seems like not a day goes by when you hear about someone getting stabbed. It seems like this is mainly happening in and around London to teenage boys aged around 15-19. Seriously, wtf is happening to this country? Newly elected mayor, Boris Johnson said yesterday that the public should not intervene if they see someone getting stabbed/mugged. What do you feel is the problem and how do you think it should be stopped?

Hi,
I have been pickin' up some Arabic radio signal things. Every time I turn up my Amp, this crazy Imam starts messing up my chords.

I will admit I've carried a knife on occasion. Partially because I don't feel safe anymore- there are no police on the streets.


Simple solution-

1 Put more police on the street and people would feel safer.

2 Start doing more stop and search. Screw 'discrimination'....the police should treat anyone as a potential carrier.

The problem is chavs,immigrants and black people are rife in London, and they are all taking a page out of America's book and murdering each other unneccessarily 'fo ma respec!!' It won't be stopped, we are transforming into America, and its widespread over there. The problem will only get worse.

Criminals have too many rights, and the police don't have enough to do anything
sentences are too light so people who stab are on the streets and stabbing people again incredibly soon

Exactly- police now are afraid to stop and search black and Muslim suspects for fear of a discrimination case against them.

More police, harsher sentences. **** 'em, if they stab someone deliberately then they should go down for life.

Guns aren't going to solve ANYTHING. Chances are that the criminal breaking into your house or mugging you would also carry one also and the chances are that you would end up dead either way.

You're a joke, we don't want to end completely ****ed up like America is with Gun laws. It's a fact, guns don't decrease crime they increase it.

sorry, you can't honestly say a week is a viable time frame to assume a trend of an increase/decrease in anything. unless you're studying the life of a butterfly or something.

No, the problem is immigrants who don't learn the laws of the UK and carry weapons because that's what they did at home. Then they segregate themselves from the rest of the world, form gangs and then start causing trouble.


I'm not saying ALL immigrants are like this but the grand majority of the trouble are started by foreign gangs.

They're the low-lifes who wear fake designer clothes and big 'gold' chains and hoop earrings and hang about on street corners spending their benefit checks on drink.

I think it's a bit crap how the media only really started caring when someone from Harry Potter and someone from Eastender's brother got stabbed.

In the eyes of the media it's only a problem if it happens to a celebrity.

Nope, from the British Common Sense and Fact Front. Britain is becoming more and more Americanised, kinife and gun crime is part of American culture, so naturally, they are creeping in over here.
The immigrants and coloured people in the London equivalents of ghettos see gangstas on American TV and think they are cool, so copy them.

Glasgow gets a fair share of it as well and tbh there is no point trying to limit knives because people would just start using cutlery knives. The best thing I believe they could do is giving rights back to the public (someone tries to mug you and you can fight back without fear of assault charges) and criminals (although some may still deserve some basic human rights) forfeit their rights because they are abusing the publics.

I think that prisons shoulg go back to the concept of hard labour. That would stop prisoners from moaning on about human rights and actually teach them something

Just because Channel 4s been running a series on knife crime this week doesnt mean that suddenly, coinciding exactly with the series, knife crime has just shot up.

Saying something like "the problem is that black people are rife in London" does indeed make you a racist.

And the guy that just agreed with him above me. You're a complete and utter retard as well. I'm half black and I'm more intelligent than you.

How do I know this?

Well you're so thick you believe race causes knife crime.
I've been here since '04.

it's so popular because it's easy.

you can buy knives so easily from supermarkets it's untrue, and how hard is it for a 12 year old to go in the kitchen draw and get a knife to carry around with them?

Not only that but they would actually be contributing something rather than just moping around in prison all day. Everyone pay attention to Mr Albrecht!!!!

I honestly doubt the US is causing the UK's problems. You need better policing and stricter laws. Mandatory castration for everyone convicted of a crime.

I love you....


Anyway I was reading that in Russia there was a prison attached to a factory, which made car parts. The prisoners assembled things like windscreen wipers in return for a small wage.


If this can work in Russia, why can't this happen in the UK/US?
