Londons new knife scanners at work:

Newly elected major Johnson witnessed forst hand today how a youth was caught carrying a knife with one of the new metal detectors at a bus station.

I've personally never liked the idea of knife scanners, CCTV systems and the like, but at least they are stopping criminals before they have a chance to hurt someone.
They passed knife control, and they're actually enforcing the law!

I dislike the means, but the effects are good ... this is a tough call, I'm not sure how to feel about it all.

What about laws against hurting people and takign their stuff which are harsh and enforced to the fullest?

Enforcing those only work AFTER the fact unfortunately.
