This man knifed a stranger to death in an “uncontrolled and vicious” stabbing on a Birmingham bus has been jailed for life with a minimum term of 26 years.
For looking at him.
OK it may have been a black on black thing but these knife attacks are all too common in the ‘safe country’ we live in.
Problem in my mind is:-
Would wearing a stab vest have done anything to save the victim?
Probably not as he severed the carotid artery, BUT as the lawful aren’t allowed to defend themselves down to a simple level like carrying mace to the best solution of carrying concealed firearms, such attacks will continue unabated.
After all it’s not like buses are patrolled by police 24/7.
Thus, as always, they arrive after the fact.
