    What is up with all of these people walking around with knives? Anyone who carries a knife, who isn't a fisherman, hunter or a carpenter, is carrying it for other purposes and based on the large number of stories that are reported they have no hesitation of using it as a weapon when the opportunity presents itself or they cause the opportunity to use it. There is certainly something seriously wrong with some of today's people when it comes to the viscous crimes that they commit. We appear to be regressing as a race to caveman status.
