Ban all knives as well? On the same day, a man in China stabbed 22 school children.
Re: “Ban all knives?”
Seattle will only ban knives if the Police try to use them!
Last year one of our cops shot and killed a man on a Downtown sidewalk who may, or may not, have refused to drop a whittling knife.
The man had an incredible drunk and disorderly arrest record - like 80 arrests in 20 years.
Plus, he had clearly become more violent and more irrational in the previous two years.
However, the public and media outrage against the cop was off the charts.
The cop was investigated for murder.
I don’t think a charge was filed, but the cop finally resigned.
