@WAR - Think about the Consequences of carrying a knife

Consequences of carrying a knife

Consequences of carrying a knife
• If you are caught carrying a knife you will be arrested and prosecuted, regardless of whether you say it was for your own protection or you were carrying it for someone else.
• Getting a criminal record could affect your whole life; future job prospects, going to college or university, travelling abroad.
• Possession of a knife can carry a prison sentence of up to four years.
• If you stab somebody and they die, you will face a life sentence and will serve a minimum prison sentence of 25 years.
• It’s your choice to carry a weapon and you are putting your future in danger. If you don’t take it with you it won’t be used.
• Carrying a knife gives you a false sense of security.
• If you carry a knife you are more likely to get stabbed yourself.
• One stab wound to any part of the body can kill.
• There is no ‘safe’ place to stab someone – if you hit an artery in the arm or leg it could be just as serious as stabbing someone in the chest or neck.
• You may end up using it and do something you regret for the rest of your life.
