Just a matter of time before he uses it and really hurts someone.

I’m sure he’s learned the error of his ways

I thought carrying a knife was a jailable offense, let alone brandishing it. He had a machete before so are the magistrates going to wait until he has a gun before jailing him.

Same old same old. No wonder so many people carrying knives. Nothing will be learnt.

With previous for having the same type of thing. This needed a significant custodial sentence 12 months at least and not in some kind of holiday camp

With a judicial system like this it’s no wonder why we have so many societal problems

No rehabilitation for somebody like this.

All too often our police service are let down by the courts, this is yet another example of why many young people have nothing to fear from our justice system. Sentences like this are no deterrent and this scroat will go on to offend again.

So what happened to the politicians promise that anyone carry a knife would be sentenced to 5 years in prison? All hot air as usual.

Holding a knife should be the same sentence as a gun its a weapon carried to harm 5 yrs minimum this is why the kids are like this they get away with everything

Can't be named to protect identity, he was waving a knife, it's the public who need protecting, there were families at the carvery that see what happened, tell the bloody truth, who was he and where did he come from
