What is becoming of this Island.

Sandown is another place full of drunks and druggies loitering
on benches along the High Street and Esplanade.

It is about time such persons were removed

Another scum bag with a knife. Prison for a Very long time will stop or at least deter this from happening over and over and the police don’t look into it. They hide most the stabbings

Before mass ethnic immigration stabbings, shootings, and murder were a rare event in Great Britain, now, since our inner cities are inundated, this is an every day occurrence.

The young, living amongst these people, then feel the need to protect themselves, and then, they too carry weapons adding to the problem.

As people not Island born and bred families settle here to escape the horrors they have watched their children endure, often those people bring their fears and ways with them. Hence more weapons are carried and used.

Best vote Reform to end the cycle

I believe the murder rate was higher a few hundred years ago, after the introduction of cheap gin for the masses. Your post is just more Deform scare mongering.

I live in shanklin and I find it so heartbreaking seeing how bad the town is getting for crime and drugs these days. I never recommend living here to anyone anymore.

Knife crime is getting out of control in the UK now, the courts must crack down hard on offenders, it should be a minimum 5 years with no parole for possessing a bladed weapon in a public place without a valid reason and a further 10 years non parole if bladed weapon used in any crime with life without parole for murder with sentences to be served consecutively and age should not be considered, if old enough to do the crime then old enough to do the time.

Courts CAN NEVER AGAIN jail offenders for crimes unless they are near life changing injuries or death to their victims because British prisons are now filled with criminals from the third world as well as our own.

And before misleading’stats’ are given, remember that many ethnic youths in jail for stabbing in inner cities are now classed as British, despite their parents being here for a few short years.

Vote REFORM or your children will have a very different life here from what you wished for them

It is not coincidence that MPs now wear stab jackets and Police are armed since the great enrichment failed experiment.

See it how it is, not how the BBC / Gov wish you to believe

I’ve never understood why people feel the erge to use a weopen. Unbelievably I know a thing or 2 and I’ve always taken the weooen of them. The excuse protection doesn’t seem right, so I assume it’s status’s or can’t fight.
All these weapons should categorically not be sold. Some else I’ve noticed is the amount of crack cocaine addicts there seems to be on the island. Ventnor most of Newport,and that Fellowship house in Ryde is what’s all in there. They allow using in there,dealing.abd I kid you not the staff allow online medicine to be believed there just 1 exception. The staff get a look in.. there’s a huge massive epidemic.it changes people. No money,burgle the shop. Beware people
