Has to be more than "You Have To Read This" or "This Is Insane - Must See" or "Everyone Is Talking About This" for me to believe that a link is more than click-bait .... Sorry. I guess I miss out on some good stuff but on the other hand ....

It's an article from the UK about how the police in a town will dull the tip on kitchen knives to make stabbings less likely or less lethal......To me,it's right out of Monry Python but I believe it's for real

if this for real its about as dumb you can get.a dull knife can do more damage than a sharp one. next will be asking surgeons to use dull scalpels. maybe the next thing will be removing forks and butter knifes so all you will have if your lucky will be a spoon.

misguided government policies have a long history. i'm a quaker, and we invented modern solitary confinement in prisons. we thought belng left alone with your thoughts in a dark prison cell was a pathway to self-improvement through easier access to god.

turned out solitary confinement mostly just drives you nuts, but by the time we figured that out it had become popular as a punishment, and still is.

oh well


every day you do not take a chance is a day of your life that you will never get back.

Why not just cut off everyone's hands to prevent stabbings crimes? Or blinding makes about as much sense.

You know that stabbing is a time honored violent act..The Roman armies were very successful using the Gladius, a short sword for stabbing rather than the later broad swords used for slashing..Caesar was stabbed by many politicians who followed Brutus's lead. Then
Caligula was stabbed by 30 "politicians" And some British kings were stabbed....Perhaps we need more sharp knives not less...

...AND, not allowing British citizens to have handguns stopped crime, too, right?

No. It didnt STOP crime but it has massively REDUCED violent crime and in particular gun crime.

Adjusted for population difference there are ~ 100 times more gun related murders in the USA vs UK.

I agree that the blunt knives thing sounds a bit dumb but reading the detail it seems it is targeted at a certain group.

Perhaps this is misguided and it would be better to give the domestic violence victims Uzi's instead?

...here between 22PM and 07:00AM you need to pay with a card in the gas stations; in this way the government can say that there are less % of assaults and also tax you and follow your earned money (plus that the son of the president is the owner of the company that have these vouchers machines...)

I actually know a few humans who would qualify the statement, "not the sharpest blade in the drawer"
