    Tackle it by making people fear the consequences of being found in possession of one in public by amending the law to introduce a mandatory minimum term of 5 years in clink as it is for firearms today. By doing so it'll remove the element of discretion soft magistrates and judges presently have.

    How hard is it not to kill someone? Why are these kids making that very easy thing more difficult for themselves?

    Iíve only ever hear bad things about Grangetown yet never see anything more untoward than what you get in Trowbridge, Llanrumney etc. There was a murder in St Mellonís just last year.
    People intent on causing trouble will do it anywhere.

    What knife crime? i know that their have been some isolated incidents but on the whole Cardiff is a very safe place to live. The problems we are seeing are usually drug related and it's the poor attacking the poor, London certainly has a problem and the reaction has been slow by the authorities, add to that a Tory government cutting the **** out of resources, and the fact that these kids are poor and many of them black, if they were white and middle class there'd be absolute outrage and plenty of political posturing...but they're not...

    It reminds me of the gang violence that used to plague LA and New York, the police just basicallly let them wipe each other out

    Fans of so-called diversity would have a difficult task spinning that programme positively. The reporter, coppers and Barry victim: all white. Everyone else featured: non-white.

    I was with some city centre police officers last week with work and they were telling me there is a growing knife problem in the city. I couldn't believe it but he said there are several knives a week being taken from mainly gangs of boys either by police or by DS in pubs.

    As in most places he said its more of a gang on gang thing rather than random people just going out stabbing each other.

    Saw the after effects of a homeless bloke who had suffered a serious head injury in the subway by City hall early this morning. Why is this happening?

    Cracked it on one - or two. They're black so it's not their fault, it's the fault of the Tories..

    You do. Happened in Hale last year. Case recently held in court and lots of very unhappy people is the outcome.

    I'm struggling to see what you mean by "so called" here, are you saying diversity doesn't exist? Or there should be another word for it? Or something else?

    Are some people saying that black people are more dangerous? Iím confused.

    Spot on .

    Moral responsibility has left the building .

    Back in the day if you saw youngsters misbehaving you'd have a go or try to reason with , now you look and wonder which one is likely to knife you in the back and leave it be .

    All the politicians and society's fault I'm sure .

    Lack of:
    Commitment to education
    Decent parenting. Responsibility
    Moral fibre.
    Pride in oneself.
    Everyone's fault but there own.
    Drugs.
    Drink (parents)

    Do you think people are naturally criminals just because they aren't white?

    Or do you think maybe there are underlying socialogical issues that mean more non white people end up getting caught up in this stuff?

    And also reformed gang members saying no one ever did anything for the areas they lived in such as Compton, south central etc...just full of booze and gun stores, police didn’t really investigate shootings just labelled it as gang and did nothing.....not that they could do much in my opinion, it was more a government and social situ that needed resolving. A crazy waste of life that many old gang members now realise and are educating the young in those areas.....

    If caught with a knife (bar reasonable use) then said knife is plunged into a non lethal area of the body. Or preferably cut his nob off, best way to look out for future generations is to not let these sort of people breed.

    Maybe you should move to Saudi Arabia if thatís the type of criminal justice system you like.

    Knife crime definitely on the increase in Cardiff so my Police Officer friends say.
    Seems to be the drugs gang thing but whatís worse is that 13/14 year olds are carrying.

    All this happened coincidentally as the govt stripped police numbers, fancy that eh?

    I don't know about New York, but a lot of people say that's what the LAPD 's unofficial policy was at one time. Do you recall the questioning of Mark Ferman ( is that the spelling ) about the phrases " N v. N" and " No humans Involved " ?

    In fairness we must note that they denied it , but I think there's something in it.
