Selina Clarke, 18, who went to school with him, said: ‘I am more angry it happened in a knife crime meeting and they were so careless not to check. ‘You would think they would do security checks, especially given the people involved in it. They cannot have been searched properly otherwise they would have seen the knife. It is so simple to put checks in place like a pat-down or a metal detector that could have stopped it.’ I thought it was raciss! to suggest they should be searched…? Mr Yan November 9, 2019 at 9:44 am It’s only racist to search if you are whitey. Rob November 9, 2019 at 9:48 am Selina Clarke, 18, from West Drayton, who went to secondary school with Hakim, said the council should have made sure there were no weapons being carried by people attending the course. yeah yeah, our fault again, of course. Never theirs, always ours. Rob November 9, 2019 at 9:50 am You would think they would do security checks, especially given the people involved in it Like…your friend.

PF November 9, 2019 at 11:17 am “Hakim, who was “always smiling and positive”, played football for his school team and had been awarded an apprenticeship to become an electrical engineer, friends said.” .. before police told him out of the blue that he would be required to attend a knife awareness course. JuliaM November 9, 2019 at 12:02 pm @PF: I’m still awaiting my invitation! Perhaps it’s got lost along with the one for my second bout of jury service? Gamecock November 9, 2019 at 1:34 pm I’m probably going to be sorry I asked, but WTF is ‘knife awareness?’ Tony Querfotze November 9, 2019 at 2:06 pm Spins wheel between “promising footballer” and “aspiring rapper” – ends up on “promising footballer” philip November 9, 2019 at 2:35 pm If these young offenders weren’t aware of knives before, they are now. So taxpayers’ money has not been wasted. Itellyounothing November 9, 2019 at 4:51 pm So does every knife awareness course end in a stabbing? How else do they learn? They won’t be able to force anyone else to attend now.. Gavin Longmuir November 9, 2019 at 5:26 pm “Now class — the important lesson to take away from this course is to be aware that that knives can hurt people. Hakim, please come over here. Let me demonstrate.” Pcar November 9, 2019 at 11:26 pm @Gamecock November 9, 2019 at 1:34 pm I’m probably going to be sorry I asked, but WTF is ‘knife awareness?’ Be aware knives are on the loose, they can crawl through your letter box or other small openings, if a mouse can then a knife can. Rentokill can supply knife poison and knife traps. . Oh, Mrs Pcar pointed out knives are inanimate objects; as are forks, skewers, screwdrivers and hammers Gamecock November 10, 2019 at 12:34 am And guns, Pcar. The Left has trouble dealing with people, so they try to deal with objects. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
