I think it's perfectly normal for people who work in IT to do so. I have to wonder if that reason has ever been tested on a copper. I mean, I doubt most policemen would believe that IT people have a use for a SAK or leatherman, but they do seem almost ubiquitous among the guys I know. I wonder how many IT personal have been charged with stabbings in the last year Secondly, I wonder how many weegee's have been charged with having a go at people with bread knives(since that is aparently one of the most favoured weapons in Glasgow these days). Stupid government, stupid country, stupid people.
