sounds fucked up.
I thought that stabbings were at their lowest level for about 15 years too.
I love how you've not strayed into areas of vagueness or in any way failed to have a point or a clue.
That said, you may be right but clearly this would be by luck rather than judgement.
but not by as much as you might think:
"Not surprisingly, London has the greatest volume of ‘most serious’ knife crime (34% of the national total), although the rate of offending per head for London is similar to Greater Manchester and the West Midlands (9.7 per 10,000 population compared to 8.8 and 8.3 respectively)."
(from here: http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm200809/cmselect/cmhaff/112/112i.pdf)
Amount of times I've had a knife held to me in Manchester (1991-1995): 2
Amount of times it has happened anywhere else: 0
in the few months I've lived here.
my coach from victoria was really late today because of this
Must've been horrific to see.
