    The guy dies... but at least he wasn't shot right?

    Here's a news story running over in the UK right now. No guns are involved so I guess it's better he died like this instead of being shot. Due to the nature and heinousnous of this crime, I imagine that there will soon be no golf, no cricket, and certainly no martial art type swordcraft across the pond. The types of implements used in those purposes shall now be considered evil and probably should now be banned.

    To the politicians here in th US... TAKE NOTE! People die because violence is barbaric and NOT the fault of the implement used to perpetrate it!! Disarming people DOES NOT MAKE YOU SAFE!!!

    What a sad state of affairs, but I guess the English get what they deserve with their utopian notions of the perfect society....Give me my nation with my rights to defend myself any day.

    Holy cow..what the heck is this world coming to. Darn footballs appear to be an issue in England. Reckon they need to be banned with the swords and golf clubs, as well as 14 year old girls..Travesty.
    I know, I know, you are smarter than me..just ask you..

    I read that on the FOX NEWS web site earlier today. That is pretty messed up. I feel bad for the kid having to watch his dad be murdered.

    Good thing the Brits got rid of all the guns though huh?
