  1. It amazes me how often the police in Harrogate say ‘Isolated incident’ and ‘no danger to the public’ you have people walking around with weapons, with the intention of using them, at what point will it click to the police that anyone carrying a weapon, no matter who they intend to use it on, is a danger to the public.
    They said the same thing about the stabbing on Unity Grove, and a member of the public was stabbed as a case of mistaken identity..
