I hate this format of reporting. Lazy because they don't have to edit the whole article.

Because your preference of how you read things (with your being too lazy to do something you don't like) being the most important thing going on here.

I for one like these live updates.

Actually Eric, using the live format such as this, means we have to write multiple versions of the story (live version, one structured in the conventional manner for the site and then one for the paper).

However, for ongoing events (as is the case here) live articles provide an easy way for readers to get the latest changes without having to repeatedly read through 600 words of copy - they can just scroll through the most recent updates.

This is just more evidence that to make our city safe everyone should have the right to carry a knife. It would only be for self defence or sporting purposes, of course.

Try using the Firefox browser, with the Ad Block Plus add on, it stops the crappy ads.
The Ghostery add on is worth considering if value your privacy, this site is full of trackers snooping on you.
All are free and only take a few mins to install.

Is it just me that thinks its disgusting to see a Chief Inspector using spelling like "thru" in a quote on twitter? Do we not have enough problems with illiteracy as it is?

I don't think anyone should carry knifes!!
people will start carrying hand guns only for when scum pull a knife out, shoot them, they are freighting your life and others, people want to be safe when they go out, and enjoy life not stabbed,
