The mayor of London, the Right Honourable Sadiq Khan once said not all that long ago that the British capital is “the safest global city in the world, and one of the safest cities in the world.”
Careful, Saddie. You might take care that those words don’t sneak up and bite you dead on the six.
Oops… too late.
As reported by Jack Montgomery of Breitbart London, meddy olde London Towne has broken a record versus the Big Apple that the Brits were quite proud of; specifically that New York has annually had a higher murder rate since 1800, Anno Domini.
That’s right, for the past two months in a row, New Yorkers have the edge on not being murdered.
Specifically, during the month of February, London has seen 15 killings as compared to New York’s 14. Even worse (or better, depending which city you live in), during March, London’s murder numbers again edged out New York, 22 killings to 21.
As Breitbart’s Montgomery noted;
The change is partly a consequence of Mayor Khan’s campaign against using stop and search on ethnic minorities, with London police chief Cressida Dick admitting that constables have become “fearful” of confronting suspects as they “might get into trouble or might not be supported if they had a complaint”.
Oh, but it doesn’t end with mere homicide. Montgomery also cites;
London was already the more dangerous of the two cities for almost every other category of violent and sexual crime
Londoners are six times more likely to be burgled than New Yorkers
Three times more likely to be raped than New Yorkers
One and a half times more likely to be robbed than New Yorkers
But fret not, Saddie Khan is busy keeping himself fighting crime. As seen in the video below, he’s doing what he can to pass newer and more strict regulation from tech companies to ban “racist social media messages”.
The north of Iraq and Syria aren’t the only places the Kurds have been knocking ISIS and their supporters around. As reported by the Haringey Independent (of London, UK) on March 23, 2015, and also by the Breitbart news portal on March 22, 2015, Kurdish expats living in Great Britain literally chased and beat some of the more radical jihadist elements from the streets of foggy olde Londontowne.
“Attacked her with the same machete he just hacked a cat to bits moments before in a fit of rage…”
On the heels of two captured Americans seen on grainy video having their heads carved off by Islamic jihadists, and with the images of a soldier murdered by decapitation still fresh in the memories of Londoners, another resident of The Big Smoke was also recently slain in like fashion. As reported by the Evening Standard (of London, England) and also by the London edition of the news portal Breitbart.com, both on Sept. 5, 2014, locals in the Edmonton suburb of north London have identified the attacker of an 82-year-old great grandmother as Nicholas “Fat Nick” Salvadore, who like the killer of a British soldier last year, was a recent convert to Islam.
Civilized people the length and breadth of Great Britain were stunned and horrified in May, 2013 as they saw on both television and the internet when the killers of Fusilier Drummer (Private) Lee Rigby of the British Army were filmed literally red-handed after they first ran over with their car, and when he was stunned, took a carving knife and a cleaver to Drummer Rigby, murdering the war veteran in broad daylight on the streets of south London. Arguably as shocking is the news that 82-year-old Palmira Silva was also decapitated, in all places, the backyard of her tidy little home on Nightingale Road.
With Salvatore reportedly running wild from back garden (British slang for “back yard”) to back garden banging on doors and windows, he eventually came upon the unfortunate Mrs. Silva, where Fat Nick apparently attacked her with the same machete he just hacked a cat to bits moments before in a fit of rage. Prior to the attack on the semi-retired Italian Café owner, the crazed man reportedly threatened a couple he was staying with, but they managed to get into their home barring the entrances behind them. Described as a frail “sweet lady” by her neighbors, Mrs. Silva was ostensibly Salvatore’s initial target of opportunity.
With enough of a ruckus raised for at least on person to call police, a reported 20 officers Fat Nick with the help of Tasers. Yet even though zapped by 50,000 volts by the standard issue Metropolitan Police X26 Taser, Salvatore still managed to put up enough of a fight to break the wrist of one of the arresting officers.
