Crystal Bar - reopened after NYE stabbings

Recommended Posts

There are certain bars, styles, clubs, fried chicken shops, all night off licences and music that just spell trouble. The same ones that have been causing trouble for 20 years or so. Is this the vibrant and welcoming city centre the council should be encouraging? Or should they all be shut...indefinitely? Seems a no brainer to me.

 

You would just move the problem on - it’s not the pub / club that makes people stab each other.

Exactly, if you are caught with a knife on the street it should be a straight 5 year sentence.

 

Flannel. I carry knife (folding, non locking sub 3 inches) every day pretty much. If we met do you think I'd try and kill you? It's not the knives that are the problem per se it's the urge that some sections of society have where they feel the need to kill somebody over a spilt pint.

It seems to be. Niche etc cater for a certain class of punter who seem to like violence. When was the last time riot police were deployed outside the Kelham Island Tavern?

There’s no need because all the people who want to cause trouble on a night out are on the likes of carver street.

Do you carry it in nightclubs/bars? Or is it for work/fishing/playing with wood?

Playing with wood is commonly known as Whittling :)

So do i.

i have had a knife in my pocket for probably the past 49 yrs. i was 4 yrs old when i was given a tiny pearl handles penknife from my grandfather

since that day i have found cause to use a knife multiple times most days, and yet still never found the urge to stick it in anyone.

 

i actually worry about the mindset of people, who when told the above can only imagine the single use of a knife is to cause injury.

Especially in Sheffield, it was custom for men to carry a small pen knife. But on this occasion I don't think this explanation is applicable.

I thought years ago there was a mandatory custodial sentence for anyone carrying a knife. It seems either the judiciary haven't upheld the law or the law was quietly dropped.

 

 

 

There never was such a law.

My work takes me to various nightspots and yes, I carry a multitool - with a knife.

 

But now you're putting caveats in. Can carry one for work as I'm less likely to kill you while I'm on the clock? I've normally got one on my keys. It gets used for all sorts of things, some days it doesn't get used at all. I carried one round Morrisons the other day. Do you think other shoppers were at risk?

I think you are wrong

 

C+P

 

Adults convicted of an offence involving a knife for a second time will face minimum sentences of at least six months, while those aged 16 to 18 will get at least four months detention or a training order
