David and I are in the midst of celebrating the best of all things knives, the 2017 BLADE Show. Meanwhile, halfway around the world terrorists have used a vehicle to mow down pedestrians on London Bridge. There are also reports of a stabbing spree involving multiple attackers several blocks away. Television is reporting a possible 3rd incident in progress at the time of this writing as well.
Three men with 12-inch hunting knives have reportedly stabbed pedestrians after mowing down up to 20 people with a white van on London Bridge.
The men, described as being ‘of Mediterranean origin’, reportedly jumped out of the van and began ‘randomly stabbing people’ along Borough High Street.
Witnesses reported hearing ‘rapid gunfire’ amid reports that least seven people have been stabbed, leaving bodies ‘strewn’ on the road in central London. One of the casualties is reportedly a police officer.
Police are also responding to an incident at Borough Market and a third in Vauxhall, Scotland Yard said.
One witness said she saw three people with what appeared to be their throats cut on London Bridge amid the ‘utter chaos’.
There are unconfirmed reports of gunfire on Southwark Street.
David and I drove to Atlanta in our vehicles for the show. Thousands of visitors to the show dis as well. I have heard no reports of anyone being mowed down on the way here. There are tens of thousands of knives all in the same room as the thousands of people. No one has been stabbed.
Cars and knives are inanimate objects. People of free will either refrain from or engage in utilizing these tools to harm others.
