London Rapes Spike and Everyone Claims to Be Mystified

While London rapes have increased by a fifth in a year, all the “experts” say they don’t understand why.

A sudden increase in London rapes is totally inexplicable according to the ruling elites in Britain. Of course, in their search for an explanation, the story does not mention immigration once and the only reference to Muslims is the use of the term “Islamophobia.” With those limitations on analysis, no wonder they don’t have answers!

This story was from four years ago and not much has changed:

The Independent reports, “London sees 20% rise in rape reports in a year, but police admit they ‘don’t understand’ reason.

The number of alleged rapes reported to police in London has risen by almost 20 per cent in a disturbing increase police are struggling to explain.

There were 7,613 reported rapes in the year to January, compared to 6,392 over the previous 12 months, according to figures collated by the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC).

Scotland Yard has emphasised that the vast majority of rapes are carried out by attackers known to victims but the statistics emerged following a “stranger rape” in Shoreditch.

Then they give an example of an attack with a non-native name for the accused, and in the next paragraph, they mention acid attacks.

Nayed Hoque, 20, of Manor Park, has been charged with rape, attempted rape and robbery following an attack on a woman in her mid-20s in the popular nightspot on Saturday.

MOPAC’s figures showed startling rises in several crime types over 2017, which saw 80 people stabbed to death amid concerns about acid attacks and violent robberies in the capital.

Of course, amid all the crime statistics, they mention an increase in crime motivated by Islamophobia.

Personal robbery increased by 40 per cent, theft from the person a third and Islamophobic hate crime by 39 per cent to 1,678 recorded incidents.
