At Least They're Taking a Stab At It...

From BBC NEWS | UK: Shock tactics for knife carriers
Young people who carry knives will be made to visit hospitals where stabbing victims are treated, in a bid to shock them into changing their behaviour.

Home Secretary Jacqui Smith said seeing "gruesome" injuries would be a tougher deterrent than [jail].
Right, but how do we think stabbing victims are going to feel about a constant stream of STABBERS passing through their hospital ward?

"Oh, don't worry, chaps! In fact, take a jolly good look! I'll get close to as many stabbers as necessary to keep from getting stabbed again!"

"Hello, Rodney! Fancy meeting you here! Say, no hard feelings about that brawl the other night, eh?"

...

Why not just STOP SELLING KNIVES TO PEOPLE?

On an unrelated topic, did you know that there is a town in Alaska called "Unalaska"?
