Sadiq Khan banned bikini ads on London’s Metro, but told Londoners to get used to jihad terror: “it’s part and parcel of living in a big city.” But that’s just the beginning for a London under Islam: “Earlier this year London overtook New York City as one of the most dangerous capital cities in the Western world. The House of Commons recently revealed the UK capital has more acid attacks per capita than any other city in the world.”
The Guido Fawkes blog notes: “In the years before Khan became mayor the numbers had fallen significantly – the Tories had got the numbers down to between 10 and 15 deaths of young people per year from over 30” and asks: “Why isn’t Sadiq facing more pressure on this? It should really be a much bigger story…”
The answer is obvious: to make this is a bigger story would be “islamophobic.”
London police are too busy tracking down online “islamophobia” to bother with catching murderers and rapists. And apparently, most Londoners are just fine with that.
“Met releases end of year crime statistics,” Metropolitan Police, April 26, 2018 (thanks to Mark):
The Metropolitan Police Service has released its end-of-year crime statistics today, Thursday 26 April. The figures compare end-of-financial-year April to March 2017/18 with April to March 2016/17. Whilst recorded crime continues to rise in the Met’s area, increases in many crimes are more marked in other parts of the country.
Total Notifiable Offences
Figures show that overall crime – total notifiable offences – has increased by 6.4 per cent (777,458 to 827,225 offences). However, many groups of offences remain lower than they were in 2012.
Violence against the person / homicide
Violence against the person is up by 5.26 per cent (237,774 to 250,287 offences). Under this category, homicides are up by 44 per cent (109 to 157 offences). Eight of these were as a result of the appalling terror attacks that occurred at Westminster Bridge in March, London Bridge in June and Finsbury Park in June. However, the number of homicides is still much lower than in 2003/04 when there were 205 instances. Nevertheless, any murder is one murder too many and detectives are working 24/7 to catch those responsible, using all resources available to them. They are also working with the Crown Prosecution Service to bring offenders to justice, as well as supporting families and loved ones at the most difficult of times.
Assault with injury increased by 0.54 per cent (50,836 to 51,110 offences). Knife crime offences are up by 21.2 per cent (12,115 to 14,680 offences) and knife crime with injury offences are up by 5.7 per cent (4,446 to 4,700 offences). Knife crime injuries to under 25s have stabilised and recorded offences at present have increased by 3 per cent compared to a 24 per cent increase for the same period last year.
Conversely, gun crime offences are down by 4.6 per cent over the comparison period (2,553 to 2,435 offences), although there was an increase in the discharge of lethal barrelled guns by 23.3 per cent (313 to 386 offences).
A Violent Crime Task Force has been instigated to tackle violent crime, weapon-enabled crime and serious criminality. These officers will use a full range of tactics to identify, locate and confront street-level offenders, gangs and knife crime offenders. This unit will be supported by borough officers, Trident and Area Crime Command and specialist units, as well as community partners.
Operation Sceptre will continue to target those people known to routinely carry knives through intelligence-led operations, the increased and proper use of ‘stop and search’, community weapons sweeps and targeting the shops and markets that sell knives to children.
Sexual offences are up by 11.04 per cent (17,880 to 19,854 offences); within that, recorded rape is up by 18.39 per cent (6,510 to 7,707 offences) and other sexual offences are up by 6.83 per cent (11,370 to 12,147 offences). The Met’s Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command has been working within the diverse communities to address under reporting of offences, particularly through a social media campaign: #ITSNOTOK.
Burglary / Robbery
Burglary of homes and businesses is up by 11.65 per cent (69,528 to 77,626 offences). The Met is committed to reducing the number of burglaries across London. It deploys patrols to hotspot areas, carries out proactive operations in east and south London against organised criminal groups who commit these offences, and collaborates with the home-counties forces to tackle cross-border offending.
The highly successful MetTrace property marking kits (traceable forensic liquid which can be used to invisibly tag valuables and possessions) are being rolled out for a third year. Over a quarter of a million homes have already been provided with MetTrace.
Total robbery is up by 35.81 per cent (24,202 to 32,869 offences), with robbery of personal property up by at 36.17 per cent (22,479 to 30,609 offences). Theft is up by 8.05 per cent (305,876 to 330,511 offences) with theft from person at 25.19 per cent, (38,013 to 47,587 offences).
Some of the increase in robbery and theft is attributable to scooter-related crime. The Met has been putting a huge amount of effort into stemming the rise in these offences. In October, new tactics such as DNA spray, light-weight police motorcycles, and remote control tyre deflation devices were introduced. As a result, reductions in scooter-related crime are being experienced. In April 2017, there were 1,512 scooter, moped and motorcycle thefts. In less than a year this number was reduced – March 2018 saw 756 thefts – a 50 per cent reduction….
