As crimes go there are few as gruesome as a beheading. Yet a beheading is exactly what we got. Shortly on its heels we have a knife crime which is as close as to in progress as we can get. The problem is that it is now open to question it will be the last. The situation has escalated to one of ideology and religion which paves the path for many more crimes to be committed. Both of these have been responsible for many deaths in our histories. For the knife attack, the police have named a person and a manhunt is on. It may be a while for him to face justice if he surrenders in one piece.
These crimes as they have proved are not one offs. With the potential to quickly become the norm which truly is too grizzly to consider.
