  1. i suppose somebody grassed on him , the police rarely detect these crimes. and theres plenty of this sort of crime around here . oh wait this happens everywhere – bla bla bla

    • Real world it does happen throughout the country gateshead right up north just about as far away as possible, 14 year old stabbed died a few hours later a boy 14 held on suspicion of crime, girl 13 held on suspicion of assisting him. Broadstairs man stabbed in street shortly after another man is arrested not far away knife recovered man now charged wake up real world do you want to know the other 9 people who have been stabbed since the man in Broadstairs throughout the country I guess not as they are not in Thanet the little microcosm of a world you live in, 11 stabbings in 6 days and that is only the ones I’ve researched more than one have died but not made headline news.

  2. He should be charged with attempted murder. He knew very well a stabbing can easily lead to death, it only needs to sever an artery or similar.
    You are making things up there now, of course the police rely on information but they are also quite capable of detecting many crimes themselves. Please don’t be so dismissive of their efforts, perhaps you should give it a try? (Catching scum bags, that is)
