Dangerous man. Hope the courts lock him up. No excuse for this violent behaviour.

Agree. Though he’ll probably get let off because the authorities will say ‘he’s got mental health issues’.
No worries that the public are not safe with people walking around with knives trying to steal whatever they want. No!!!!! Very worrying times.

Where the hell do these ‘numptys’ come from?
What gives anyone the right to steal from others…….nothing.
Get a job and buy whatever you want yourself. Start giving and stop taking. Have some self respect for God sake.
