Good find. The 21 foot rule is a good one but hard to maintain in normal walking around mode. Street thugs use newspaper to wrap around a knife hiding it in plain view. If you see this in someone’s hand expect an immediate knife attack. They can stab you and the paper collapses exposing the blade.
I haven’t seen a thug with a newspaper in years.
The dead giveaway is the reading part.
With the proliferation of pocket clip folding knives, the old butcher knife in the newspaper died off. Havent even heard of it happening from city cops I know and they share quite a bit if you’re in the loop.
The knife fights and wounds I’ve seen were from kitchen knives in a domestic situation or pocket knives/work knives in the hands of immigrants.
Now, pos Hi Point pistols, those I’ve seen a mess of.
