Saw this story on The Daily Wire:
Both cities have roughly the same population; in the month of February, 15 people were murdered in London, whereas NYC recorded 14 homicide deaths, reports The London Times.
London is set to outpace NYC’s murder rate for March as well. “By late last night there had been 22 killings in the capital, according to the Metropolitan police, against 21 in the US city,” notes the Times. Eight of those murdered in March happened in a span of just seven days.
Since 2014, excluding victims of terrorism, the number of London murders has risen by a stunning 38%.
It’s stunning, that London has suddenly become such a violent city. If only there where a technology, that a citizen could carry for self-protection, that would keep a knife-wielding attacker at bay…
Old joke, You know what the medical term is for someone who attempts armed robbery with a knife in the United States?
