One man's "small"... is another man's...

...fatal penetrating trauma...

"According to OHRC spokesman Afroze Edwards, police will be revising court-security procedures so devout Sikhs wearing the small ceremonial blades will be allowed to enter."
Well... as long as it's just small & ceremonial, that's... wait a minute...
"They must not have a kirpan longer than 7.5 inches in total."
Hang on a second. I'm not even allowed to wear a hat in a courtroom... but these guys get to tote knives?!!!

What could possibly go wrong here, huh?
-- BRAMPTON, Ontario, April 19 (UPI) -- A fistfight among some 70 Sikhs in a temple west of Toronto escalated into a brawl involving hammers and machetes, police said.

Once again... the compassionate, intellectual left just misses the point.

If they can carry their knife 'not more that 7.5 inches in length', why can't I carry my Swiss Army knife of less than 6 inches in length open? Carrying a pocket knife is a cultural imperative with me, I have done it since I was 5 years old, and will until the day I die.

I sense some discrimination going on here, can I call on the Human Rights Kangaroo Kourt to protect me?

And don't forget the temple brawl in B C where kirpans were used as offensive weapons.
