  1. A few years back at a landlord presentation, the police asked those present to keep an eye open for tenants / visitors that had or looked to have injuries to their arms or legs, there was at the time (and its apparently now more common) a practice of enforcing drug debts with “punishment stabbingsl” usually inflicted with a small screwdriver or similar. It was said that it was such actions that were driving the upward statistics around stabbings nationwide.
