    Just saw this article:
    https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/...ondon-stabbing
    Also, why would anyone stab a 15-year-old boy?Why are people hurting one another and why are children targeted?I don't understand what could motivate someone to commit such a heinous crime.

    You don't have to be in a gang to be attacked by one.

    Because people will find ways to kill each other even when you make getting a firearm more difficult.

    We don't know yet, he was stabbed three times in the chest and it was after school just outside the gates. A girl in that school told me it was like a hit and run and people were screaming

    I'm going to take a stab in the dark, but maybe the slashed police budget has resulted in cutting the police's effectiveness.

    Wanting to be popular? Its like we are in the middle ages. All the kids are "defending their honor" and decide to do so by killing someone who baits them out on social media.

    Integration causes a LOT of knife crime. If you look at the West Midlands Police Facebook page any crime to do with knives the perpetrator is black in most cases but then again thats a general thing across all crimes.

    Couple months ago this boy who used to go to our school that i didnt knwo got stabbed apparently it was because he was defending his friend who was in an argument over 10 or 5 pounds so they chased the guy because of the argument and because he was defending his friend and stabbed him i think that was what happened, well thats what i heard.I cant believe people are so stupid to stab someone as the reality after that is many years behind bars, and these people ruin the bright future they had ahed of themselves for some silly reason

    Wow another one
    Some people get triggered and try to jump others afterschool and this happens.
    This is why our school is bombarded with random police checks (Don't think theres been any stabbings at our school tho)

    There's a 'gang' called "Eastcote Pagans" lol

    No offence to you but I hope you realise how stupid it is that this happens over "being baited out on social media"... why do people get involved in this rubbish? They try so hard to be popular and liked by these low life fools who have nothing but an ugly future ahead... I just think it's pathetic.
    What are you trying to say? That he deserved what he got? No he didn't. It was an unequal consequence for a premature action. It didn't harm the gang member in particular he just decided to defend "his honor".
