Stab-proof school uniforms for pupil protection.


www.dailymail.co.uk

Parents are sending children to school in stab-proof uniforms to guard against knife crime, it has emerged.

They are paying a firm which makes body armour to line blazers and jumpers with a stab-resistant material called Kevlar.

The precautions are aimed at protecting pupils from knife attacks as street crime spills over into schools.

A wave of stabbings involving teenagers includes the killing of footballer Kiyan Prince, who was knifed just yards from his school gates in north London.

This just goes to show the state of things in some of the inner-city schools across the U.K.

What is the world coming to when parents fear so much for their kids that they feel they must take such extraordinary steps?

Is this not a rether pointless exercise....if this stuff gets popular, an attacker is just going to select his victims exposed "weak spot". Facial cuts, hand wounds and something more serious like a neck wound would become more obvious targets for the criminal.

Basically...terrible news, maybe a cry for help!
