it has definitely got worse and isn’t media hype as 16 years ago I used to live in the same area a Jonnyquest and it wasn’t anywhere that bad –
yes there were gangs and racism (ends were divided into “white” and “black” areas and I lived on a frontline between those who were “multicultural” and BNP supporters, including a BNP postie what tried to start on me once) but I never got any major grief back then and I am not a big blokeMay 24, 2008 at 9:53 pm #1172541
I’m sorry to hear about your mate.
a good friend of mine was stabbed through the heart and died a few years ago.

the thing that bothers me most is that it isnt an on-the-spot act of rage, its pre-meditated. to some theres no difference but to me theres a world of differece in the mentality of peopleMay 25, 2008 at 9:53 am #1172524boothy wrote:the thing that bothers me most is that it isnt an on-the-spot act of rage, its pre-meditated. to some theres no difference but to me theres a world of differece in the mentality of people
its a different kind of “pre meditation” though.. not as if they are looking for a known individual target, but how soldiers would always have their weapons to hand – seems like nearly everyone there had a knife because they knew it may kick off or expected it to do so..
its actually society regressing, as there was once a time when every young man had a sword or pistol (well into the 1900s in some areas) and the most “civilised” form of fighting was duels, (but of course there were also large scale brawls, particularly around inns or where university students gathered)May 25, 2008 at 4:01 pm #1172530
this problem has been brewin for a while imo. our secondary school was full of knives, lots of people carried. during my 5 years there i think there was only 4 incidents, but nobody got stabbed (however this was due to a door held against someone in one case and good talking-down by a teacher in the other)May 25, 2008 at 4:17 pm #1172525boothy wrote:this problem has been brewin for a while imo. our secondary school was full of knives, lots of people carried. during my 5 years there i think there was only 4 incidents, but nobody got stabbed (however this was due to a door held against someone in one case and good talking-down by a teacher in the other)
there was a knife amnesty in my high school in 1986, but there was only one stabbing in that year (at a notorious nightclub in the area, not the school) and I never saw any knife violence.
I used to carry not just a knife but a entire kit of various tools which were used for all sorts of (slightly illicit) purposes, but never violence. My mates did so as well – they were part of equipment we’d use to explore the entire school (including attics, basements what you weren’t supposed to get into, sometimes locks needed a bit of “persuasion” as you didn’t take the routes teachers / technical assistants / janitor took or you’d get trouble)
If an Asian lad did that today he’d probably get hauled up by anti terrorist police.
there was hardly any fighting though at school, it wasn’t perfect by any means but way more peaceful than what all the younger lot on here mention. I suppose though a lot of money was pumped into this school particularly for stuff like IT (a lot of it is why I did well today)
oh and we didn’t stab people not because we didn’t have disagreements or were pacifist hippies etc, but because we all knew prison was shit and our normal lives (even with the usual teenage troubles) were better than being locked down in HMP..May 25, 2008 at 4:48 pm #1172528
my sister used to carry a knife after what happened to her then boyfriend (see above)
I was terrified for her as I was sure it’d get used on her,
She didnt seem to understand this – as it made her feel safer –
with people breaking in to her house looking for him / guns getting pulled etc
horrible period of our life
fortunatley he went into hiding and she was left alone and stopped carrying it after a few months of being left alone. and she never had to use it / get it used on her
esp as ‘going equipped’ adds more onto your sentancing I think – even if your carrying it for ‘self deffence’ ..
(we live in suburbia so not even central london)

yep some people do carry them for “self defence” but unless you know how to use it its more dangerous, and if you do use it even in self defence you’re gonna go HMP for a bit even if its just remand
also even if you get off in court scum have family/friends too who will want to avenge the death so you will have to move away anyway
on a lighter note, me and my mates did a squat party in Reading in 2001.
one young lad (we knew him and was he was no violent thug) had taken to carrying a knife as he had just got jacked. Anyway we found this knife on him , and confiscated it – he was warned about it (and discouraged from carrying knives) but told he could have it back at the end of the party.
Now it just happens we had also acquired loads of rolls of ropey parcel tape (the brown stuff) what had been slung out the back of a office supplies place. We soon found out why it had been dumped as the stuff didn’t stick properly but oozed nasty glue everywhere. it was totally useless for its intended purpose. when you tried to remove it, you got covered with more glue…
Anyway my mate who was on the door looked at this knife, and said to the lad “this is a dangerous knife. someone could hurt themselves on this blade looking after it when it is in store, I must make it safe”
So he proceeeed to cover up the knifes blade (and the handle) with metres of this dodgy parcel tape. I’m not even sure if the lad claimed it back afterwards, I think we offered it back to him but he decided he didn’t want it any more :laugh_at:May 25, 2008 at 7:05 pm #1172538
robs mum was on the radio earlier imagine losing your fucking son in that way its a fucking jokeMay 25, 2008 at 7:13 pm #1172531
