Knife crime

In London, five stabbing deaths in 17 hours. Good thing guns are banned. Also, this is odd:

The stabbings occurred in the week when the Met launched a 75-strong taskforce to stamp out London knife crime.

It’s not working.

    Itís not working.

    That’s because they’re not trying hard enough.

    It’s just like walking through a concrete wall by banging a hole in it with your head. If it doesn’t work the first time, hit your head harder.

    Markie Marxist sez: “It’s working just fine. The destabilization of British society is proceeding at an excellent pace. Soon, Communism will seem like salvation. We’re winning!”

    Not working is a stretch actually.

    Violent crime has (generally, ignoring temporaly spikes) been in decline since long before gun/knife control.
    Knife crime, even with all the charges for posession added in (25% of the full figure) is going down.

    Not working? You’re right, all these measures aren’t having a noticable effect, save for a couple of thousands arrests, random searches you may be subjected to, metal detectors in school streets and subway stations.
    Crime is in decline as it long has been …

    But the people are getting scared, kids who could never get a gun are now packing knives for self defence, which leads to the sudden spike now that schools out.
    The older people are getting significantly pissed off at their government I might add, they feel as if nothing’s happening to their advantage.
