I was on another forum the other day and there was a thread posted about bringing back Mrs Thatcher and I couldn't believe I actually thought it wasn't that bad an idea.

and another one today which only lasted 2 hours on the bbc front page! The woman in this article who was stabbed to death also had her son shot to death in 2002!

It's really worrying, My kids are 6 and 6 months and I dread to think what it's going to be like by the time they are in their teens

not doubting all of these things are terrible, but it would be interesting to see the figures for knife crime over the last 100 years or so. It's not necessarily worse than it was, just we hear about it more now ;)

You may well be right, it's just the age of those involved seems to be getting much younger.

People are too scared (rightly or wrongly) to stand up to teenagers today and it means they are literally getting away with murder.

To many idiots running around with weapons....if your caught with a weapon, you intend to use it...lock em up....and get rid of jails that seem to be more like hotels
no one fights on their own anymore all in gangs....

Everyone thinks their hard....yet they don't use fists

yeah thats my view too, just appears in the recent months they have become more media focused, making Joe public believe that we are living in some sort of knife wielding maniac society

never said everyone did, just saying too many idiots.... I'm sure the same amount carried them as berfore, but more are using them or at least threatening to... I've known a few lads when I was at uni get stabbed by non-students just looking for trouble

Are we in the mid-90's by the way? NOT?

Waynes World was like a decade ago....

its when you post gems like this i truley love you.......spat my tea out everywhere!!!!

lol

thanks......

Question really here is how many people commenting on this thread have actually had something happen to them?

Oct 07 was in a local town...some guy approached my girlfriend...I thought he was just trying it on and ignored it...it doesn't bother me in the slightest...

Next thing lad takes his shoe off (Jerry Springer style!) and whacks her full bore around the face....

I jump in....wrestling with him and 3 lads.... the one that started gets away from it....calls more mates ends up with 10 of them stamping on my head... trying to push me into the main road....

After all that....me lying unconscious in the middle of the road.... they walked off.... got 500 metres away then decided to come back....
They were trying to kill me no doubt!

If I wasn't built like I am I'd be dead.....

All that I came out with a broken jaw in 2 places and a broken nose, few scratches and a few bruises.....I learnt I can take a hell of a beating that night so ever happens again I won't think....'oh its the press the country ain't that bad' I will kill as many as I can and then the press will report it and I'm sure it will be 'JUST THE PRESS'

This site was set up because of the increasing numbers or whether it was down to media reporting...

http://www.insight-security.com/facts-knife-crime-stats.htm

"How is 2008 shaping up for knife crime?

- well the first fatal stabbing in 2008 occurred just hours into the new year! ..with at least three more fatal stabbings in the UK being reported in the first week.

In 2007, there were 27 teenagers stabbed to death in London alone

...in the first 10 weeks of 2008 there have been 9 fatal stabbings in London... "

Completely agree with your views on this ODB, 10/11 years ago when my daughter was about 10/11 she'd taken her younger brother to a park 200 yards from our home in central but a suburban area of London (if you know what I mean) Anyway I was hovering as Mums do when kids play with my at the time baby in a pushchair and ashamed to say was only watching out of the corner of my eye, until, a girl went up to my daughter and started ribbing her, i shot over to her at the same time a pack of girls all around the same age as my daughter did the same. They took her phone, 2 of them had knives, they took my bag. Do you know what the police suggested i do?


MOVE. :x

Guess what i did. :oops:


Thats pretty bad
even worse when the police did nothing about it, to many kids get away with things becausethey are under age, I think if they are gonna get into fights and carry knifes why not treat them like adults insted of just telling the victims family to move or ignoring it.
