  • My brother lance gregory was murdered in a senseless cowardly knife attack in 2012 . Due to our justice system His killer is out this year. This has no way had any  significant impact on his life. He can still come out have kids and  be part of a family.His term of 10 years do 5 is an insult I've known burglars  get longer .This has to change if you carry a knife and get caught the justice system  needs to come down hard and fast and if a murder or an assault occurs using a knife then the sentances need to reflect that. They have taken a life and not only done that but impacted on a whole family and alot of other people i.e family  friends  partners work colleagues the list is endless. So please sign this if you agree that lives are worth more than these insulting short sentances. Also They say there's a hefty sentence for carrying a knife but 9 times out of 10 a knife is just confiscated there is no fear of consequences for carrying a knife this needs to change now before we loose another life so therefore my aim in this petition is an imediate custodial sentence if caught with a knife .We need to put a fear factor in place so that people don't want to be caught carrying a knife because they know 100% they WILL go to prison no caution or fine just compulsary custodial sentences.We need to save lives and united we can do this .No one should ever suffer the effects of knife crime .
