Punishment for dropping butts is worse than carrying a knife!
Knife crime is becoming worse by the day, yet how seriously do the authorities take it?
Reading in this paper last week, a man caught carrying a kitchen knife is fined a total of £160.
On the same page, others who threw away cigarette butts are fined a total of £333.
What kind of a mad country have we become?
Whatever happened to a minimum sentence of five years for carrying a knife in that situation?
