Germany: Surge in Stabbings and Knife Crimes

Germany’s knife-crime problem is being exacerbated by its lenient judicial system, in which offenders receive relatively light sentences, even for serious crimes. In many instances, individuals who are arrested for knife-related crimes are released after questioning from police. This practice allows criminal suspects to continue committing crimes with virtual impunity.

    Clearly we need to ban all access to knives!

    At least the dangerous elderly Twitter and Facebook bigots are kept in check. They are the real threat, with their pointed opinions and hard edged arguments.

    The lesson: Cold steel is just as deadly as hot lead. Something that is usually found out the hard way when criminals, thugs and lunatics can’t get their hands on firearms. There may not be “stray knifings”, but random attacks with blades more than make up for that…

    Interesting how a lot of those large melees sound like duels. Ironic how our society has outlawed dueling, only to import cultures who still loudly and proudly practice it, along with old school clan warfare…
