Not reported here: A foreigner held her back but she wriggled out and stabbed him. The whole time he was shouting "If you are going to do it, just do it!".

There was another case a few years back a pretty girl stabbed her host bf. He didn’t die but was seriously injured - she had fully intended to kill him by plunging the largest knife she could find deep into his abdomen. She got something stupid like a 3 year sentence. In other words, a brutal stabbing gets a sentence in the same ball park as a recidivist shoplifter (two years, on JT the other day). Maybe if she’d been put away for a decade or two like she should have been, the girl in this report might have thought twice.
