Knife Crime is Out of Control in Sadiq Khan’s London

Published

on

London continues its downward spiral under London Mayor Saddiq Khan’s leadership. Or lack thereof.

According to figures from the London Metropolitan Police, 49 percent of knife crime is committed by teenagers. Even more revealing were numbers that indicated that three quarters of knife crime perpetrators were minorities.

This is part of a larger trend of failed government policies that are beginning to produce toxic social outcomes throughout the UK.

For a start, it doesn’t help that the UK has an expansive welfare state that is not very conducive to immigrant assimilation. One needn’t look further at the case of Sweden to see how welfare states incentivize socially destructive behavior among immigrant groups.

It also doesn’t help that the UK doesn’t guarantee gun rights like our Second Amendment. After mass shootings in Hungerford, England, and Dunblane, Scotland, the political class in London has heavily restricted the ownership and usage of firearms in the country. With such restrictions on civilian firearm ownership, one would think that British officials would at least consider stepping up their law enforcement programs.

Sadly, elected officials like Sadiq Khan have treated Britain’s recent knife crime wave like a public health problem as opposed to a criminal problem. Mayor Khan has even ignored calls for a return to a law and order approach to policing.

London, and the rest of England, for that matter, desperately needs better policing. The Guardian recently exposed the UK’s growing knife crime epidemic:

“Police recorded 39,598 offences involving a knife or sharp instrument in the year to December 2017, a 22% increase compared with the previous year (32,468), and the highest number registered since comparable records started in 2010.”

Breitbart also provided a sobering view of London’s knife problem:

“London specifically experienced record high knife crime, increasing by 15 percent to a total of 14,987 blade offences — representing 38 percent of all knife crimes across England and Wales and averaging 41 knife crimes a day.”

Responding like a typical busybody politician, Sadiq Khan advocated for knife control as a response to knife attacks in London. On top of that, London is already the most surveilled city in the world, with approximately 51,000 cameras deployed to monitor its citizens.

London’s political class is clearly out of touch with reality and does not strike at the root of its crime problem. Until it starts considering tougher policing methods or measures that allow for law-abiding citizens to defend themselves, we can only expect crime to continue to increase.

Biden Authorizes Attack on Syria, Kamala FURIOUS It Wasn’t Her Call

Will Biden do a regime change in Syria?

AMERICA IS BACK BABY!

You didn’t seriously think that after four years of peace in the Middle East, things were gonna stay that way, did you Jack? Well of course not! On Thursday afternoon, the Pentagon confirmed that the United States military had carried out airstrikes in Syria against facilities used by Iranian-backed militias. These groups have been operating in Syria for some time in their fight against the Islamic State and Al-Qaeda.

Pentagon Press Secretary Kirby gave the following statement:

“At President Biden’s direction, U.S. military forces earlier this evening conducted airstrikes against infrastructure utilized by Iranian-backed militant groups in eastern Syria. These strikes were authorized in response to recent attacks against American and Coalition personnel in Iraq, and to ongoing threats to those personnel. Specifically, the strikes destroyed multiple facilities located at a border control point used by a number of Iranian-backed militant groups, including Kait’ib Hezbollah (KH) and Kait’ib Sayyid al-Shuhada (KSS).

This proportionate military response was conducted together with diplomatic measures, including consultation with Coalition partners. The operation sends an unambiguous message: President Biden will act to protect American and Coalition personnel. At the same time, we have acted in a deliberate manner that aims to de-escalate the overall situation in both eastern Syria and Iraq.”

According to conservative commentator Jack Posobiec, Vice President Harris was not included in the discussions about the bombing and is very upset that she wasn’t.

Many Twitter users are also pointing out the fact that Biden had fully condemned unannounced military action in the Middle East when it was Trump doing it.

According to the New York Post, the airstrikes were in response to recent attacks against US forces in Iraq. The militia groups targeted have denied any involvement in the attacks and there has been no confirmation as to whether or not they were involved. The New York Post wrote:

The Pentagon did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

It was not immediately clear if there were any deaths or injuries caused by the US strike, or the extent of damage it may have caused.

On Feb. 15, a rocket attack against a US military base at Erbil International Airport in Northern Iraq killed a US-led coalition contractor and left others wounded, including an American service member.

Two days later, a base hosting US forces north of Baghdad was targeted in another rocket attack, wounding at least one contractor.

On Monday rockets hit Baghdad’s Green Zone, which houses the US embassy and other diplomatic missions.

Earlier this week, the Kataib Hezbollah group, one of the main Iran-aligned Iraqi militia groups, denied any role in recent rocket attacks against U.S. targets in Iraq.

Some Western and Iraqi officials say the attacks, often claimed by little-known groups, are being carried out by militants with links to Kataib Hezbollah as a way for Iranian allies to harass US forces without being held accountable.

Fox New’s Tucker Carlson, who seems to be the only host on any cable news network that has been unquestionably anti-war for the past four years, gave a monologue Thursday night about his take on the attacks:
