London’ Regents Park Police shared a Tweet the other day bragging about the dangerous weapons they’ve recently taken off the streets of London.

It’s good to see the police hard at work and big up Regents Police for all the other great work they do – but you’ve got to expect a bit of flak after Tweeting that out.

Unfortunately the war on spoons doesn’t really seem to be helping reduce knife crime in the UK, no thanks to our justice system letting people like this go free.
