De-criminalise carrying of knives, but…

Comment 3rd July 2010

A four-year sentence for carrying a knife is ridiculous; no judge could recommend that and the kids know it. But there should be a penalty for threatening someone with a knife, even if no knife is visible.

Why does this matter?

Kids can have little respect for such an impracticle law, and even if they don't have a knife they can threaten to use one and can call for reinforcements on their mobiles. It is not the carrying of a knife that is the threat to society, it is the intent, and that is what should be punished.
