I'd appreciate Morgan more iff he came back to the UK and debated knife crime, something that's a lot closer to home for myself, family and
Nobody talks about that much here in the UK, well...the people do, but in the political arena? Not much, it's as though it's an acceptable part of
I just don't appreciate this guy in another country bashing the natives when he could come home and bash his own, because there's plenty of bashing
to be done here. Kids rule the streets in urban areas in the UK, recently - some lads invaded the home of an old lady who lives near me and beat her
with a machete, her image was plastered all over the media and it's burned into my retinas - everyone abhors such an act but not very many are
discussing the root cause of such incidents...yet it's all part and parcel of everyday life here.
If there's one thing we have in common with the US and I'll agree 100% that it isn't being discussed enough - is mental health, drugged out of
their faces, absolutely numb, killing for killings sake and it's the norm. It's actually something they do with pride - knife each other. People
walk the streets of scotland with scars on their faces as if they're badges of honor, yet nothing is done to tackle the root cause of these issues,
slap 'em in prison for 5 years, they do 2 and a half and are free to continue their criminal career having been schooled in the art of crime by
hardened fellow inmates, it's insane.
The sad thing is, if guns were more readily available in the UK things would be worse here than they are in the states, we do plenty of killing
without guns over here. Out government don't seem to care what the real cause is, they seem to think their misguided judgements when it comes to
punishing these maniacs are a solution, prisons aren't the solution they're a consequence of our inaction...but nobody is caring.
I'm in my early 30's, I'm not scared of anyone, really...I mean I've been in a few situations and kept my head, and stood my ground, but I'm
still quite paranoid...even coming home from work at night, you never know the minute. Being capable of defending yourself is one thing, but these
idiots don't operate failry, there's no fair fights any more, it's 10 against 1. If someone wins a fair fight, the loser returns with a weapon and
five of his pals.
Gangs of drugged and boozed up idiots attacking random people for no reason...with the intent to kill and it really is that simple...the UK is rife
with it, especially in the big cities. I've spoken out in favour of CCTV in a few threads because I've seen some terrible things happen where I work
(train station), some brutal assaults on people minding their own, usually poor, defenceless kids outnumbered, being stabbed, stomped on, beaten with
bottles, bats...you name it, and I've seem the culprits being caught due to CCTV footage...I just wish I saw them being punished as they should be,
you know? They get light sentences, do half of their time and are released to a community where their stupid friends think they're heroes.
And on the subject of justice, Morgan needs to answer up with regards to the phone hacking stuff. If the newspapers cared less about reporiting
trivial matters, celebrity gossip - and more about real issues like violent crime - Morgan and his ilk would be more appreciated and the whole phone
hacking fiasco wouldn't have happened...but it did, and he was part of it. Who cares if charlotte church is pregnant, or some actor had an affair
with some actress...even when he was here in his native land, Morgan didn't care about the real issues that the people care and worry about on a
daily basis, so yeah - he has a damn nerve.
Sorry to go off topic, just want to highlight something...Morgan ought to come here and argue against knife crime...we need someone like morgan to
fight for us for once, we've got nobody.
