Still more on Britain's knife culture
16 year old lured to an ambush where he is beaten and stabbed to death.
"Meanwhile a 17-year-old boy who lives near where Shakilus was attacked said stabbings were depressingly commonplace - and often happened for no reason at all.
He said: "If he hadn't died, no one would have cared about this, it would have just been another stabbing. You grow up around here, you always see the yellow boards around and then you wake up and see 20 police vans outside."
More here, with an interesting typo in the headline.
UPDATE: a Briton has up an online petition to allow firearms ownership there. He notes he's been robbed at knifepoint twice, and includes some statistics
