THIS IS REAL: UK Government Introduces ‘Knife Free’ Boxes of Fried Chicken to Reduce Violent Crime

The United Kingdom Home Office unveiled their new effort to crackdown on violent crime across England and Wales this week; introducing new ‘Knife Free’ boxes of Fried Chicken throughout the country.

“We are rolling out our #KnifeFree chicken boxes in over 210 chicken shops in England and Wales, including Morley’s, Dixy Chicken and Chicken Cottage. They use real life stories to show people how they can go #KnifeFree,” posted the official account of the Home Office UK.

The boxes are apparently normal fast-food containers with the words “#KnifeFree” included on the packaging.

A UK Member of Parliament demanded strict new policies to crackdown on violent crime throughout the United Kingdom earlier this year; calling for the implementation of a “GPS tracker” in every knife sold in the country.

“Every knife sold in the UK should have a gps tracker fitted in the handle. It’s time we had a national database like we do with guns. If you’re carrying it around you had better have a bloody good explanation, obvious exemptions for fishing etc,” tweeted MP Scott Mann.

Mann’s comments come as the UK struggles to clamp down on knife crime across London and beyond as homicide rates soar to record levels across the country.
