I'm going to shank you, I mean poke you?

Unsurprisingly Facebooks ’shank’ option, which was part of SuperPoke!, has been removed.

Again unsurprisingly, the feature had attracted numerous complaints from anti-knife crime campaigners. All in all, SuperPoke! is fairly harmless and fun, but you have to stop and ask who authorised that, and what were they thinking would happen? Especially considering that knife crime is one of the fastest growing crimes in the UK, in the youth sector. So far this year alone 28 teenagers have died.
