Latest UK knife crime figures..
« on: March 04, 2011, 08:17:57 AM »

Only One in Five knife offenders are jailed new figures show. It's 21%. That's close to a 50% reduction from 2008. The State talks tough on knife crime but with only the most serious ( repeat ) offenders are facing jail time. It's very clear that talk is cheap. For many jail time is in reality is nothing more than 3 to 6 months inside. Or increasingly 200 hr's community service, that's going around weeding the public parks and sweeping up. You see these guy's sitting about smoking pot and drinking while they are supposed to be doing this work ! It's a joke. On the plus side the number of children ( 10 to 17 ) prosecuted for carrying a blade in a public place was 906 last year, now that's a lot but it is really a massive drop on the previous years figure of 1,528.

The knife crime stats also show Summer Holiday period as peak time for incident's !!
