The London murder rate was higher than New York City’s for the first time ever recently, mainly through stabbings.
This news about the London muder rate is remarkable, considering that Britain has even more stringent gun control. But guns aren’t used in many of these London murders. Rather, knives are the preferred means of killing. The other factor that is not mentioned is immigration. The only clue is the list of names of the last fifteen murder victims. Almost all of them are ethnic names rather than English names.
February marked the first month in history books that London had more murders than the American city with a total of 15 homicides. Out of the 15 killed, nine were aged 30 or younger.
In March, there were 22 murders, which is likely to match if not beat out New York’s numbers.
The murder epidemic continued on Sunday when a man in his twenties was fatally stabbed after leaving a bar in Wandsworth, marking the12th person to be murdered in London in 19 days.

According to a report by the Sunday Times, New York City’s murder statistics have decreased by 87 per cent since the 1990s.
Meanwhile, London’s rate has grown by nearly 40 per cent in just three years, not including deaths caused by terrorist attacks.
Although New York last year had nearly double the number of murders than London, experts are concerned the gap is steadily closing.
Officials are concerned about the uptick in fatal stabbings, fearing there is a dangerous surge in knife crime.
Last year there was a total of 80 fatal stabbings in the capital – the most in almost a decade. And official figures show that 2017 was the worst year for knife deaths among young people since at least 2002.
Forty-six people aged 25 or under were stabbed to death in London, up by 21 compared with the previous year, according to police figures.
And how do politicians respond? Increased police? More detectives to solve more cases? More severe penalties?
The Met commissioner, Cressida Dick, has said reversing rising violent crime is a priority.[…]
‘London must come together to make it clear that this cannot continue. We will not police our way out of this problem.’
That’s the voice of the institution that bases it’s legitimacy on the need of people to be defended from attack—the civil government. “We will not police our way out of this problem.” So that’s the decree. The slaughter will continue because your taxfeeding masters can’t be bothered by the deaths of peasants.
