London’s Muslim Mayor Sadiq Khan has completely lost control of his city.
London has become a remarkably dangerous place and the numbers speak for themselves.
Check out these numbers and then think about whether or not Khan is in over his head or not…
Sadiq Khan’s London has seen an “appalling escalation” of serious crimes including murder, violent robbery, and home burglary in the last year, according to new police data.
Figures released by the London Assembly Police and Crime Committee showing the number of crimes in the year to March 2018 revealed the murder rate surged 44 per cent in 2017/18 to 157, compared with 109 in the previous 12 months.
Violent robbery and home burglary were up by about a third in the period, and youth killings rose by 30 per cent from 26 in 2016/17 to 34 in 2017/18.
he figures also showed sharp increases in the number of rapes (18 per cent), knife crime offences (21 per cent), and shootings (23 per cent) from the previous year’s data.
Committee chairman Steve O’Connell said: “The unacceptable rise in the most heinous crimes such as murder, street robbery and burglaries is deeply troubling.
Obviously, the mayor can’t stop all the crime but the guy just seems to be asleep at the wheel.
He’s running around talking about banning knives.
From USA Today:
London Mayor Sadiq Khan announced a crackdown on knives Sunday in response to the rising levels of violence in London, which recently surpassed New York City’s homicide rate for the first time.
“No excuses: there is never a reason to carry a knife,” Khan tweeted. “Anyone who does will be caught, and they will feel the full force of the law.”
There have been more than 50 homicides in London so far in 2018, and much of the violence is tied to gangs.
No reason to ever carry a knife. That’s what London looks like today. Yikes.
You think maybe the people of London are having second thoughts about electing a mayor who doesn’t take terrorism seriously and clearly doesn’t understand how to stop violent crime?
