A British teenager was shot dead in London only minutes after a man was stabbed in the head in another part of London.
The victim, was shot dead in broad daylight.
Despite efforts by London Ambulance Service to attend to the victim’s wounds, he was pronounced dead after forty minutes of effort to revive him.
The shooting occurred after a man in his thirties was stabbed in the head in another incident that took place on London Road, Sutton. However, the injuries this victim sustained did not turn out to be life-threatening.
Gun crime has become a national issue in the United Kingdom, despite comprehensive gun control passed during the past three decades which has all but prohibited firearms ownership for self-defense in the U.K.
A day before the West Northwood shooting the Metropolitan Police seized a vast arsenal of firearms and explosives. In a raid taking place at an industrial estate near Bretts Farm, Romford Road, police found “three AK-47 assault rifles, one sub-machine gun, two shotguns, one revolver, one self-loading pistol, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, and 22 grenades”.
Law enforcement also found “A large number of stolen vehicles, several kilos of Class A drugs, and a cannabis farm”, and arrested one 31-year-old male “on suspicion of possession of firearms, ammunition and explosives with intent to endanger life”.
The causes of Britain and London’s violent crime wave are hotly debated.
Some argue that significant cuts to police funding by the central government, while others blame the law enforcement for focusing on non-violent crimes such as “offensive speech“.
The scaling back of stop and frisk has also been blamed for the violent crime increase.
When violent criminals were asked about London’s crime dilemma, they attributed weak sentencing and mass migration to the rise of crime.
One gang member said that “Giving tougher sentences will prevent people from carrying knives because nobody wants to go to jail for 10 or 15 years just for carrying a knife.”
In what many see as a futile effort, U.K. authorities have even floated the idea of knife bans and have instituted knife surrender initiatives.
Immigrant ghettoes have become a major problem in present-day London thanks to mass migration policies that the country has adopted in the past decade.
As time progressed, these areas have become home bases for criminal elements.
One criminal revealed to the Evening Standard how “In the last 10 years, since the Somalis and the Congolese came to London, they taught us a whole new level of violence.”
A Week After Getting Kicked Off YouTube, Stefan Molyneux Gets Booted from Twitter
On July 7, 2020, right wing social media philosopher Stefan Molyneux received a suspension from Twitter, a week following his ban from YouTube. This move comes at a time when many people are questioning Big Tech’s influence on political discussion on the Internet
The ban was implemented without even so much as a warning, according to a report by RT. Molyneux explained the situation during a livestream. “It’s nice to see that Twitter is talking to tech journalists before they would talk to me,” he commented. The right-wing pundit asserted that he was suspended from the platform following the promotion of a new essay that details his values and beliefs. “It’s not hard to understand why powerful people might not want you to read what I wrote below,” Molyneux wrote in a note detailing his suspension from Twitter.
Molyneux is of the opinion that the campaign to deplatform conservative influences has begun to “energize” conservatives. He believes that his ban shows “who has the power and who doesn’t have the power.”
Twitter disputed the idea that he was kicked off for ideological reasons. Twitter provided a statement to CNN in which it contended that Molyneux “was suspended for spam and platform manipulation, specifically operating fake accounts.”
But others condemned Twitter’s decision and warned of a growing assault on free speech, expecting “the purge” to “accelerate.”
Fellow commentators such as Mike Cernovich were critical of this decision. He took it a step further by predicting that the group of renowned public figures who recently signed on to an open letter calling out cancel culture would not bother to defend Molyneux.
Cernovich tweeted,”The Venn diagram of people who just signed that Against Cancel Culture letter and those who will mention Stefan Molyneux being banned will be two wholly non-intersecting circles.”

Molyneux is the host of Freedomain Radio and was permanently unpersoned from YouTube on June 29 after supposedly being in violation of the site’s “hate speech” policies.
Molyneux’s removal comes at a time when Big Tech is putting the clamps on all forms of right-wing dissent.
As the 2020 elections approach, this kind of censorship will likely increase against figures who actually stir the pot.
