I am barely familiar with One America Network. From what I gather it is for people whom Fox News isn’t right wing enough. I don’t know. I don’t really care. I have tuned out of pretty much all televised news. One of their anchors, Liz Wheeler, had a pretty epic rant about Sadiq Khan’s recent comments on the carry of knives. But why stop at banning knives? Why not Ban all the Things?
Wheeler goes on to list all of the innocuous items that have been (mis)used to kill. I didn’t verify every single one individually, but one particular item mentioned stood out – an Afro Comb. I used a little google fu and came up with this from the BBC:
A 16-year-old girl has been detained for a minimum of 10 years after she was found guilty of murdering a teenager with an Afro comb.
Rebecca Douglas spiked Julie Sheriff in the head with the comb’s metal handle in a row in May 2011.
Julie, originally of Sierra Leone, died on 21 September from a brain injury inflicted in the attack in Battersea.
The 16-year-old, from Hackney, east London, was in a coma for almost five months before she died.
So really, banning all the things is the only thing that can really keep us safe.
