London Murder Rate Beats New York as Stabbings Surge

Stabbed potatoThe Times UK Headline says a lot about what happens when you make it illegal to defend yourself.

“…as stabbings surge.”

Deprived of one tool human nature, emboldened by the state’s disarmament policies, proceeds unhindered in the shadow of a government as incapable of protecting its citizens as Scott Isreal in Parkland (who had an officer on site).

Students who are trying to turn America into England.

London overtook New York in murders for the first time in modern history in February as the capital endured a dramatic surge in knife crime.

Fifteen people were murdered in the capital, against 14 in New York. Both cities have almost exactly the same population.

London murders for March are also likely to exceed or equal New York’s. By late last night there had been 22 killings in the capital, according to the Metropolitan police, against 21 in the US city.

Eight Londoners were murdered between March 14 and March 20 alone and the total number of London murders, even excluding victims of terrorism, has risen by 38% since 2014.

This morning, another person became a victim.

Add to this, as Mark Styen point also out, that England does count people murdered by terrorists and, US statistics, unlike the British ones, include manslaughter and other lesser charges.

Write that down and save it. London has more murders than New York City without counting acts of terrorism, or manslaughter, few to little of the former in the Big Apple of late but plenty of the latter I am certain.

It’s almost as if the British government is trying to hide the truth about what happens to people who have been told for generations that the state is protecting them and they’ve no right to try and do it themselves.

Tell that to the disarmed people lying cold behind the headline ‘stabbings surge.
