    It appears the police do not wish you to know much more about those arrested on suspicion of these knife crimes. Has the council communications officer been participating in conversations on FB about stabbings in the area without being transparent about her job or is it just someone with the same name ? Why is it information about all of these suspected criminals is so scarce ? Why would that be ?
