Once they do, you have nothing to stop them with.
London is one of the safest cities in the world – but knife crime is tragically ruining far too many lives
I want them to know how important they are, what they can achieve in this city and that they shouldn’t put their futures at risk by carrying a knife.
Our message to every young Londoner across our city - don't risk your future by carrying a knife.
I‘m angered and heartbroken by the recent violent deaths on our streets. Met police patrols have already been increased and extra stop-and-search powers are in place
Let me be clear - there is no reason to carry a knife. To anyone who does - they will be caught, and they will feel the full force of the law. 35 people have been charged for murder offences occurring during 2018 so far.
We need communities, families, friends and neighbours to give us the information we need to bring these criminals to justice.
What utter shit. A knife is a tool - a useful one. It’s not just for protection like a gun, another right that shouldn’t be inhibited. But that’s another conversation. This is about knives - what cuts food when nothing else is available, what cuts tags of children’s toys, what trims fingernails is a pinch, strips wire, enlarges holes, open packages. It’s a god damned tool, and this fuck is taking them away.... and this just proves that it’s not the “weapon,” it’s the people. Without gun bans, those savages would be shooting. With the gun ban they’re stabbing and throwing acid. Banning those will increase car deaths. Blinded by their own sense of superiority, they’re unable to admit it’s the savages they’ve invited to destroy their nation who are doing just that.
Don’t let them take our guns. That is the first and last line of defense against us turning into what London has become.
