In a shocking change of tactics, Voldemort has done away with the old method of the avada kedavra curse and sent a worthless piece of trash to take care of business instead. Voldemort was unavailable for comment.


Man guilty of killing 'Harry Potter' actor (http://edition.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/europe/03/04/uk.potter.star.murdered/index.html)


LONDON, England (CNN) -- A habitually violent young man was convicted Wednesday of the murder of teenage actor Rob Knox, who had starred in the latest "Harry Potter" film.

Karl Bishop, 22, attacked Knox and four friends with two kitchen knives outside a bar in Sidcup, south east London, last May. He stabbed them 10 times in less than two minutes, the Old Bailey court in central London heard.

Knox, 18, had rushed out of the bar after he heard that Bishop had threatened his younger brother Jamie but he ended up being stabbed five times, once in a main artery. He died in hospital later that night.

Bystanders said Bishop's face was "screwed up in rage" as he lashed out with the two knives, the Press Association reported.

Days before the attack, the actor had finished filming on "Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince," due for international release in July, in which he played the role of Marcus Belby. He was set to reprise the part in future "Harry Potter" films.

Knox's father Colin told mourners at his funeral, including co-star Rupert Grint, that his son had been "living the dream," PA said.

Prosecutor Brian Altman told the court that the young actor's promising life was ended by a "habitual knife carrier" who believed stabbing people was an "occupational hazard" and had previous convictions for knife crime.

Bishop is due to be sentenced on Thursday.

Knife crime in Britain is a political hot topic due to a spate of recent killings of mainly young people in major cities. UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown has urged tougher sentences for those caught carrying knives. He told the Daily Telegraph last month: "By carrying a knife you are not only endangering the lives of others, but you are more likely to be killed, or end up in jail.

"We need to change the way young people think about knives, we need families and communities working together ... to get this message across and help stamp out knife crime and get weapons off our streets."

Until lead pipes are banned and "candlestick" crime increases and the cycle keeps going until people start shanking each other with pencils.

That knifegun is the worst piece of concealed weaponry evar.

"Sorry, you can't board our airplane/enter our nightclub/press conference while carrying that knife."
"You got the completely wrong idea, officer, see, it's really a gun!
"Ooookay, now you totally can't come in."

IDIOT, you can't bring a knife to a gun fi-

Did you just shoot me? Fuck. I think you missed, due to your bitch ass gun having close to zero accuracy. Oh wait, no, i think you got me in the chest. Damn. Barely even felt that mother fucker. Couldn't even get past my sternum! Look, i'm pulling the bullet out now. Goddamn that is a bitch ass caliber.


Srsly though, that is like a derringer .22, except....why not carry a fucking derringer...or just knife the dude if you get close enough to actually be effective with it.

KNIFE CONTROL THINK OF THE CHILDREN

The mayor of edmonton(my city) tried to do it. I kid you not.

Wanted to ban tactical knives after some stabbings, which is funny because the people who got stabbed were stabbed by scissors and a kitchen knife(or something domestic like that)

Will we bad scissors now?

So some dude on the street threatened to shank a guy's brother, then shanked the guy when he said "hang on a second"? What a fuckin' psycho, he should hang from his neck.

One thing the article does state is the back story. Anyone know about it, was it a 'random encounter' or were they picking a fight with him or whats up?
