  1. thank you to the job centre staff who looked after the guy while the ambulance came, I was there at the jobs fair wen it happened and they did everything they cud to take care of him

  2. When will these idiots learn its not intelligent carrying a knife. If you kill someone it’s so many lives ruined, the victim has family, the aggressor also has family, a mother has lost her son!

  3. I got jumped 2 years ago, I nearly lost my eye sight in my right eye and had to have 3 lost of laser surgery. It went to court and the judge threw it out before I even went in the court room. It’s disgusting and the police need to come down harder!

  4. I helped this kid too the job centre and it was very distressing the wounds he had and I hope he comes out ok so sad to see him like that
