London Police set up special task force to combat knife crime

Admittedly knives are a lot less useful defensively, particularly for physically weaker victims since you have to come into physical contact to use them, but this is still worth some note:

[London police] have established a special anti-knife-crime unit to address the recent spate of fatal stabbings in the British capital, Paul Stephenson, deputy commissioner of London Metropolitan Police, was quoted as saying. . . . .

Thanks to Zach Gennaro for the link.

Wasn't London supposed to be one of the safest places on earth, since there are no guns around?
Anyway, about this anti-knife-crime-unit, what are they going to do?? Go in every house or restaurant and seize every knife?? Will they provide people with a free stack of plastic knives to replace the others?
