This is so sad, it is funny. Diogenes’ Middle Finger: Eating Your Daily Gruel In London Might Just Get You a Trip to the Dungeon.
So the cops in a UK town have taken some “dangerous weapons” off the street. (Click thru for the photo of those weapons.) There is most of a set of steak knives, a couple of what appear to be either Wüsthof, or J.A. HENCKELS chef’s knives, or some imitations, a couple of sharpening steels (hey, they have pointy ends. sort of) …
It’s also hard to miss the 3 pot roast forks as well as a rusty spoon. Wait. A rusty spoon?
In the annals of crime fighting, bragging about taking a rusty spoon off the streets qualifies as the most pathetic law enforcement action ever. British thugs started using knives to victimize people. The natural reaction was to ban knives because without knives assholes have no way of hurting other people. Criminals found and exploited a loophole and apparently started using hammers and so UK police asked citizens to report anyone buying tools in a hardware store. I’m not even kidding about this.
Steel pipe and rocks will be outlawed next. In that place where Great Britain used to be.
