Stop knife crime! Tougher sentences

This petition had 4,840 supporters

13 years ago today we said goodbye to my mum, she was taken away far to soon and in the most awful way. Her killer is now free!
Tuesday we lost another member of our family in the same way. His killers have yet to be caught! (Apart from 1 who has unbelievably been bailed!!!!!!)
It's time to stand up and fight, not for revenge but for justice. This country needs to change the laws and sentences for killers and violent offenders. Life has to mean life and sentences need to reflect the crime. People need to stop protecting these evil creatures.
Having worked within the prison system I can confirm it is not exactly a deterrent and it should be, having done time should not be treated like a badge of honour, or something to be proud of.
I will be joining the fight against knife crime and domestic violence, I have so many friends and family who I know will support and join this fight, let's help get the message out and force this government to take action.
I don't want anyone to ever go through what our family has.
Things have to change, life needs to valued, every human life is precious and needs to treated as such.
