  1. You can show me all the statistics you want about declining crime numbers …. But its this type of unprovoked attack , and the recent incident in Toronto where a man was stabbed in the heart for accidentally bumping another guys shoulder that makes me call for more cops and stiffer sentences !

    The brutish, inconsiderate behaviour that passes for acceptable conduct between strangers shows a fundamental breakdown of the socirty.
