A Sale mum who wishes to remain anonymous is concerned about the way kids as young as twelve-years-old being able to buy dangerous knifes on the internet.
She tells me they buy these knife’s pretending to be over eighteen and pay with a pre-pay credit card.
Her own twelve-year-old child was knifed on the Sale West Estate recently and shown us the picture of his hand that he put up to protect himself, it was so graphic we could not show you.
His hand was cut in several places and had been stitched up together, the shape of the knife used caused the most damage.
The mother spoke to her councillor and apparently he agreed that this was a shocking incident, and something had to be done to make sure kids this young cannot get their hands on any dangerous weapon so easily.
We checked on Ebay and you can buy any knife you want on the American site, it is not known how kids are able to con the company with such ease with fake information.
Gladly the boy who was knifed survived to tell the tale, his mum also tells us that the dark days on the Sale West Estate are fast coming back since the kids have nothing to do.
We do not share her opinions about Sale West as this seemed like an isolated but nasty incident, we do agree though that something should be done to make sure knife’s are far away from a child’s reach.
