Greater Manchester ≠ Manchester
It's like saying Hemel Hempstead is dangerous because it's in (Greater) London. And funnily enough even though I'm in Greater Manchester our crime figures for my postcode are considerably lower than ****'s. Hmm.

My sister wants to move INTO Cincinnati. I want to move farther away! All you hear on the news is shootings this and killings that. It's a pretty violent city.

Once someone sneaked into our house while we were asleep and stole our van. And then another time some creep came knocking at the door at 3 in the morning looking for my dad (who wasn't home) and wouldn't go away. Actually that happened a lot, because we lived in a parsonage. People came for help all the time.

It's not a competition, it's when you make sweeping generalisations like that I have to correct you. Technically Greater Manchester (where both me and Kai are from) is comparatively quite safe.

According to the topic, apparently not.

Well shit happens everywhere, and we're talking about stupid kids here, not convicted criminals, chances are this kind of crime doesn't even count for the crime rate, and in this case Kai didn't even report the case to the police so it's like it didn't happened.

btw if I were you I'd talk to the parents of the kids, if they don't punish their kids severely enough, report the case to the police.

In most cases the parents are even worse than the kids

Yes I'd be frightened to contact their parents in case they came and stabbed me and my family because their kid already tried for no reason.

I've never seen it happen. I mean, I've been in a few fights back in school. It's normal for a kid to throw a few punches or even run around with a crowbar or a plank with a nail in it. Normal to carry around spiked knuckles and threaten to use them. In some cases, even draw blood. But nothing more than cuts and bruises.

It's not exactly a worldwide thing, though. From the media, it sounds worst in the UK. Kids stabbing each other and posting a video of it on the Internet, really?

Hemel Hempstead has it's fair share of twats and scum, but it's not the worst place to live. There's the odd bike being stolen and a guy getting beaten up but no criminal activity that makes me afraid to walk the streets at night. But hey, find me a big industrious town that isn't like that.

And I'm sorry to hear about your daughter. It's sad that these sick people would target an adolescent like that. I was attacked and beaten up when I was 9 years old by some travelers for not wanting to play basketball with them. :/

My older sister almost got shut in the car trunk when she was 3. Can't remember where The rest of the family and I were at the time but apparently Mom n Dad hired a neighbor of our's daughter to watch her. Thankfully she got out when she went inside for dinner. If I ever find that itch-with-a-"B" I'll sue her ass.

This world is definitely a cruel place.

It is quite bad here. I've never seen the problem this bad in Poland or Spain. Knife crime attacks are on the rise here, but thankfully so are arrests. There's an absolute lack of respect amongst a lot of youths here and it's not helped by judge's handing out custodial and minor sentences to serious problems.
