The general public in the UK are sick of hearing stories of people being stabbed every single day. The epidemic is spreading out of London and into the bordering counties. We are painfully bored of hearing the same pathetic excuses from the Mayor and MPs. Yes police cuts are obviously a factor- but what tangible action are you actually going to take? Nothing so far. There is absolutely no excuse whatsoever to not ramp up the punishment for carrying a knife in public. This petition DEMANDS that the UK Government introduces an immediate zero-tolerance 10 year prison sentence for anyone unlawfully carrying a knife in public. Let's see how many people carry one then.
Do your damn jobs and put an end to people being killed on the streets.
