Knife Crimes An Epidemic in the United Kingdom
There is no way that anyone is going to convince me that knife crime is not at an epidemical proportion in Britain, and especially London areas.
Hardly a day goes by where someone is not stabbed and if these incidents are not recognised by the government as an epidemic then something is seriously wrong with this country’s governing political party.
In the last couple of days the media carries the following reports, two men ages 22 and 23, arrested on suspicion of fatally stabbing a 25-year-old man leaving work via a security gate he was attacked by a group of men and stabbed, he died in hospital.
Woman arrested in Hanwell following the stabbing of a 25-year-old. Apparently, the police called to a house in Hanwell where they found a man suffering from knife injuries, he was rushed to hospital but died from his wounds.
Two teenagers arrested on suspicion of stabbing to death a celebrity minder, been bailed. The 27-year old according to the media confronted the men for apparently, trying to steal a moped, he was, stabbed to death, outside his home in Chadwell Heath.
Two men robbed and stabbed by so-called balaclava-clad muggers. The 20 and 28-year-old were leaving an award event when they, were ambushed; they survived the attack.
Those are just a few of the incidents which took place recently. I am and avid campaigner of people who use knife sent to prison for the rest of their natural life.
In my opinion, and not subscribing to any criminal activities, but it takes a particular breed of people to stab another human being, sometimes repeatedly. To be able to do so shows a cold calculating individual/s and when you have experienced the loss of a loved one from stabbing or members of your family chased by a gang of knife-wielding thugs, it brings home the severity of the problem.
I am hoping the day will arrive when our government will say enough and put these individuals away for life, make them think twice about using a knife, and ridding society of these psychopathic behaviours from humans.
