London Knife Attacks Set To Outpace NYC Murder Rate For First Time In Modern History

Humm… You mean getting rid of guns didn’t stop murders? What the left refuses to comprehend is that evil will perpetuate itself regardless of the weapon used.

Very interesting how these “murder” statistics don’t include victims of terrorism. I’m a bit confused why murdering someone of their religious belief is somehow different than murdering them for any other reason.

Since 2014, excluding victims of terrorism, the number of London murders has risen by a stunning 38%.

London has also seen an “epidemic” of acid attacks in recent years.

The increase in fatal crime is a recent trend in London. According to the Times, “FBI data and studies by the late Eric Monkkonen, a researcher at the University of California, show that since 1800 London has had a murder rate per person of between half and a 20th of New York’s.”
