Marie Mccallum started this petition to Exempt self defence from knife crime in public places and

Knife crime is at the highest it has ever been in the past 10 years... 

Now in 2019 we so want to make a difference and stop the knife crime rising anymore. 

Its  illegal to be caught with a knife in a public place or on our streets. 

 So why in so many cases do we see that people are stabbing other victims in a public place and are allowed to claim self defence when it was illegal for them to carry a knife in the streets or in any public place to start with. 

AND YET THEY STILL DONT EVEN GET PUNISHED FOR CARRYING IN PUBLIC TO START WITH.

PLEASE LETS MAKE A CHANGE...

 Exempt  self defence from anyone who is caught using a knife to harm or kill an individual in a public place ,  it is against the law to be caught with a knife in a public place so let’s not keep giving people the chance of getting away with this again and again...

 If you take a knife out you intend to use it therefore you should not be allowed to claim self defence .
