Horrendous weapons in London

(This picture IS in the Public Domain.)

My nephew is in the Met police. On Saturday evening he and his rapid response team attended an affray in East London. This was seized. The red note book is about 6 inches long, to give an idea of scale. Absolutely horrendous.

there was a piece on Radio four this morning about Liverpool. Kids as young as 11 and 12 are being paid up to one thousand pounds to stab other youngsters.

Its really a Huge issue now, not sure what the answer is

Terrifying. Such a horrible world we live in these days I agree though not sure what the answer is, violence has become so commonplace these days that even if they banned all knives people will still find some ways to create weapons.

I worry too. My nephew and his girlfriend (also a PO) are based in East London and get involved in all sorts. They post some horrendous photos on their teams Twitter page (authorised).

A few years ago he had a couple of nasty personal incidents when off duty. People hed arrested previously, recognised him public and attacked him. The first time, he ended up in hospital with a fractured skull. Second time, he was just leaving a restaurant with my brother. A man at another table followed them out, picked up a wine bottle & smashed the bottom off to make a very dangerous weapon. Luckily brother and nephew got to their car in time.

After that he moved house, 30 miles away. He can relax when off duty now.

The problem is a general lack of respect for the law and useless Judges who give pathetic sentences. There is no deterrent anymore, the Police are seen to have no powers and are over-stretched add to this parents who are happy to defend little Johnny who is normally a good boy, so they get let off with a slapped wrist - oh and it "against peoples rights" to disclose details caught on CCTV etc.

The world is going mad and nobody dare challenge these lunatics

My husband is an officer in the Met, in West London. These stories are an every day occurrence from his team and it totally terrifies me. It's just relentless for the officers and there is so much less respect these days, these kids don't care about the repercussions of their actions because the judicial system is totally inept.
