Knife carrying in Sussex - suddenly things are fine?

Interesting knife crime-related story in the Sussex area.

Littlehampton and Bognor Regis police searched customers using night-time drinking spots in the region... and said knife-carrying was low in number.

No information was given about actual knives that were seized or the type of people that were carrying them - but in typical Sussex Police style, they like to reassure the public that they are the power in control.

It's a public relations style that the police have carried out for years - yet it was Sussex Police who also said knife carrying was prevalent in the county.

What's to believe?

Well, you've seen plenty of deaths and stabbings, you've seen the wounds, you've seen lives devastated in reports in this blog - and talk to jo public, and they say people are carrying knives. I'd say the police in Littlehampton and Bognor are wrong.

Here we go again in Sussex - battle for the messaging and communication airways; who'll win the PR battle? The police of course... they can exercise their power and cause unhappy resentment all round. Old-fashioned folk in uniform who think they can bully their opinion 'out there' into their little corner county of the world. Nothing much changes over time in Sussex it seems - everything's fine.

Right. Everything's fine with knife crime - obviously.
