Being treated as terror related

From BBC

'Three people dead after multiple stabbings in park

It is not being treated as terror-related, say police, after a man is arrested on suspicion of murder.'

People don't think about the sentence before going to kill. That's pretty obvious isn't it?

Yes, where the murder rate in New York is now lower than London. London's increasing and New York's decreasing.

How would you go about reducing the rate of knife crime then? Whatever's in place at the moment obviously isn't working.

Ditch the knee jerk howls for "tougher sentences" is a good start.

You actually posting something positive would be a start. Hardly knew jerk,  I've thought it for years.

I've never quite got the tougher sentences being preventative argument for crimes like murder - I think it stands for 'smaller' crimes that people might convince themselves are harmless or worth the risk like drugs or financial crimes, but surely nobody is making a logical decision on committing murder being worth the sentence, whatever that sentence is. I can see the argument from a "we as a society want to punish this person and prevent them re-offending" but not that it would actually stop the first crime.

To reduce the number of events, proper investment into mental health and social services would seem a good place to start. It stands to reason that if you cut these things to the bone, people who are dangerous are more likely to fall through the cracks and people who might become dangerous are less likely to be turned away from that.

In general terms anyway, we don't know anything about this specific event yet.
