  1. So.. a taxi driver is Kings Norton is stabbed; a man in a pub is stabbed, and now this teen is threatened at knife point. And all in the space of 1 or 2 days, in the SW area of the city.

    This really is getting out of hand. The current law of banning anyone under 18 from buying a knife is a complete joke because clearly you don’t need to buy a knife to threaten someone.

    It’s is a shame the victims can’t mete out punishment to their attackers by the same method! But of course we are not living in the Dark Ages, are we!

    I really do not know what the answer is because stiff jail terms clearly is no deterrent, especially for those under 18, who don’t have to be publicly named or shamed!

    This country really is going to pot

  2. I quite agree, Zola. It’s like a virus affecting society. This country has long gone to pot as has the world! The Human animal is getting worse. My theory is that because there is too many of us, the gene pool has weakened and people are (not all of us) are going insane. It is getting like Victorian times with technology, so maybe we should have some Victorian punishments…Harsher crimes need harsher punishments. Murder deserves capital punishment, enough DNA evidence and that should be it. Of course the PC brigade and snowflakes will disagree.
    We’ve had enough of these chavs and other vile people, with their littering, knives, breeding more to kids to carry on….There will be a revolt one day by the decent people, I guarantee….
