Does anyone remember the safety/prison knife from Richmond a few years ago?Historically we needed a point on the end of our knife to pick up food because forks weren’t invented. Now we only need the point to open packets when we can’t be bothered to find the scissors.
London beat New York in murders this year. Banning weapons does nothing.I totally agree with you in principle.
I totally agree with you in principle. However, since it seems hard to treat the root cause (one should still try), if a ban on Hello Kitty pins actually decreases the number of stabbings by fanboys/fangirls, it’s hard to argue that it was a bad idea, even considering one’s principles, since the positive impact would outweigh the negative imo. However, to my knowledge there’s never been such a Hello Kitty epidemic or ban, so we can’t talk statistics.
I’ll let you have the last word, and bow out, though, before Matus gets mad at me.
https://www.bellingcat.com/news/uk-...-londons-murder-rate-is-not-higher-than-nycs/According to Wikipedia, this was only true in February 2018. However, that month was an aberration. New York has always had a higher murder rate.
Didn't the knife article basically dismiss themselves by admitting both the FBI and British crime statistics are not accurate and are hard to compare because of the method of compilation?
You can't make a point, they have been bannedDon't have to. I was making a point. People use catchy headlines to support their position even when the context with said article will state otherwise.
I can't remember the context of the research paper but I once read one where in the summary where the researcher made recommendations that went AGAINST his own research results.
Since you asked nicely, and I have no life being up in the middle of the night due to too much sugar and coffee intake, I decided to read the first article.hehehe, thanks for summarizing the 2nd article
Could you please be a lamb and assess the first article as well?
