Hi everyone.

Thank you for stopping by.

Knives can be good eating utensils but they also make vicious weapons. On the UK news we hear of knife crime almost daily.

Even the police are not safe from stabbings. Sometimes a gang just pick some innocent person to attack with knives.

Is this the same in your country?

At least we have little gun crime.

Thank you for reading my post.

I am not sure but I do not think we have many knife crimes. Weapons are forbidden.
I don't think it was a I was a kid. I had a swiss knife like most children and we played "conquer the world" with it. You had to throw your knife on the earth and draw a line. That was your world. Someone else tried to take it away from you. No one stabbed another one and accidents never happened.

With more foreigners, more people at 1 Square meter habits and attitude changed. Most crimes are in certain communities and poverty is increasing it too.

People, women, elderly people, are molested, robbed but seldom with a knife.

Crime is rife in many places. What is your country?

The Netherlands. I think it also depends on where you live. Poverty is not always the reason. The one's who ram an ATM with their car are not poor. It seems to be big business.

The one who stole my daughters bag with groceries probably is.

We’ve had a few knife attacks in Dublin but nothing like on the scale it’s happening in the UK.
